    Small volcanic eruptions over the past 20 years have been protecting the Earth from global warming, according to a new study. Scientists have confirmed that droplets of sulphur-rich aerosols spewed into the upper atmosphere by volcanoes have been reflecting sunlight away from the Earth. Until recently it was thought that only particularly large eruptions had […]

  • Global Warming Pause Due To Volcanic Activity, New Paper Claims

    • Reporting Climate Science

    The “warming hiatus” that has occurred over the last 15 years has been caused in part by small volcanic eruptions. Scientists have long known that volcanoes cool the atmosphere because of the sulfur dioxide that is expelled during eruptions. Droplets of sulfuric acid that form when the gas combines with oxygen in the upper atmosphere […]

  • Indian Science Congress: ‘Fears Of Man-Made Global Warming Exaggerated’

    • Date: 07/01/15
    • Anahita Mukherji, Times of India

    Two of three scientists at a session on climate change and society at the Indian Science Congress on Tuesday felt fears of man-made global warming were greatly exaggerated. Their presence at the conference was particularly significant in light of the current ‘development-versus-environment’ debates. “While I agree that glaciers are melting because of global warming, if […]

    • William F. Jasper, The New American

    The rebounding of polar bear populations over the past several decades has been a huge success story. Far from being endangered, vulnerable, or threatened, polar bears are thriving; their populations have exploded in virtually all of their habitats of the circumpolar nations. That’s good news for the polar bears, but bad news for the Polar Bear Specialist […]

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    Global sea ice extent finished the year at 1.69 million sq km above the 1981-2010 average. This equates to 8.2% above normal. During 2014, sea ice extent has been above normal for 245 days, at an average of 295,000 sq km.   Antarctic ice continues to blow away all records, beating the previous end of […]

  • Happy New Year! Tropical Rainforests Grow Faster Than Thought

    • Date: 01/01/15
    • Richard Gray, Daily Mail

    Tropical forests are growing faster than scientists thought due to rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A Nasa-led study has found that tropical forests are absorbing 1.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year as they photosynthesise and grow. And this is far more than is absorbed by the vast areas of boreal forest […]

    THE North and South Poles are “not melting”, according to a leading global warming expert. In fact, the poles are “much more stable” than climate scientists once predicted and could even be much thicker than previously thought. For years, scientists have suggested that both poles are melting at an alarming rate because of warming temperatures – […]
