    A debate among scientists over climate change and conflict has turned ugly. At issue is the question of whether the hotter temperatures and chaotic weather produced by climate change are causing higher rates of violence. A new analysis refutes earlier research that found a link, and the two lead researchers are exchanging some pointed remarks. […]

    Climate change may not pose a serious risk to plants in parts of Israel in the coming decades, according to an ecological study based on years of induced drought. The conclusion — the plants are tougher than the changes — runs counter to the current scientific consensus. Semi-arid and Mediterranean ecosystems are thought to be among […]

    • Climate Dialogue

    According to the latest IPCC report, AR5, the influence of the sun on our climate since pre-industrial times, in terms of radiative forcing, is very small compared to the effect of greenhouse gases. According to some more skeptical scientists such a small solar influence is counterintuitive. The Little Ice Age, the period roughly from 1350 to […]

    • John Ingham, Daily Express

    Climate change forecasts may be overestimates due to a failure to take into account how plants absorb carbon dioxide, scientists warned today. Sceptics say the new study further proves that the science of climate change is far from settled   They said the impact of rising CO2 levels on plant growth has been underestimated by 16 […]

  • New Paper: Global Sea Level Rise Has Greatly Decelerated Since ~2002, Contrary To Predictions

    • Date: 08/10/14
    • The Hockey Schtick

    A new discussion paper published in Ocean Science evaluates multi-mission satellite sea level records and shows that the rate of sea level rise has greatly decelerated since ~2002, as has been documented in prior research finding sea level rise decelerated 31% since 2002, and decelerated 44% since 2004 to less than 7 inches per century. This is obviously the opposite of […]
