  • The (Latest) Answer To the “Pause”

    • Date: 26/08/14
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    In popular science journalism the latest is always the best. With all the explanations for the “pause” in global surface temperatures since 1997 – there are now over 30 of them – it is always the most recently published one that is the “answer.” This time it’s the Atlantic Ocean that’s to blame. A paper published in Science says […]

    • Phys.org

    A rise in the number of reported floods in the UK over the past 129 years can mainly be explained by increased exposure, resulting from urban expansion and population growth, according to new research by the University of Southampton. In one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind, scientists have discovered that although the […]

  • A Global Temperature Conundrum: Cooling Or Warming Climate?

    • Date: 12/08/14
    • University of Wisconsin-Madison

    “Data from observation says global cooling. The physical model says it has to be warming.” When the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently requested a figure for its annual report, to show global temperature trends over the last 10,000 years, the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Zhengyu Liu knew that was going to be a problem. “We have been […]
