  • NASA: Higher CO2 Levels Responsible For ‘Greening’ Earth

    • Date: 27/04/16
    • Brooks Hays, UPI

    New research confirms rising CO2 levels are driving the “greening” Earth effect observed by satellites. Greening is evidence of accelerated plant growth and heightened rates of photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide is a main source of fuel for plants — and thus, all life on Earth — and previous studies show a rise in CO2 results in […]

    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    A new study just gave people another reason to be skeptical of climate models relied upon by scientists to predict the future impacts of global warming. Climate models have long predicted man-made global warming would cause the western U.S. to become more arid and brown, but that’s not what happened. A new study examining three […]

    A new briefing paper published today by the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) examines environmentalists’ statements about droughts and heatwaves and finds them to be highly misleading. Claims that droughts are getting worse are not supported in the scientific literature. This is true for both on a global level and for the UK, where […]

  • Faulty Climate Models: “Drought Forecasts Are Barely Trustworthy”

    • Date: 21/04/16
    • Axel Bojanowski, Spiegel Online

    Global warming is supposed to produce more droughts. But now an analysis reveals that climate models can barely calculate rainfall. Scientists predict a fundamental change in the climate, because humankind constantly emits greenhouse gases into the air. The gases retain heat in the air so that the temperature rises. The greatest risk involves the water […]

    Australian Attorney-General George Brandis has questioned the science of climate change, saying he’s not ‘at all’ convinced it is settled. Labor has seized on comments by the senior Turnbull government minister that there were a number of views about the cause of climate change, arguing it proves the deep climate scepticism in the coalition. ‘It […]
