    • The Economic Times of India

    NEW DELHI: The rebound in monsoon rainfall has created ideal conditions for agriculture for the rest of the year with accelerated planting and much more water in reservoirs, which officials said would lead to record food production this year.  Rainfall in August has been 35% above normal so far, which has further improved crop planting […]

    • Graham Lloyd, The Australian

    The Great Barrier Reef is not dead, is not dying and is not even on life support, federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley has declared after her first official visit to the World Heritage-listed site. Returning from a snorkelling trip to Moore and Flynn reefs offshore from Cairns, Ms Ley was happy yesterday to broadcast the […]

  • Arctic Sea-Ice Loss Has ‘Minimal Influence’ on Severe Cold Winter Weather, Research Shows

    • Date: 12/08/19
    • The University of Exeter

    The dramatic loss of Arctic sea ice through climate change has only a “minimal influence” on severe cold winter weather across Asia and North America, new research has shown. The possible connection between Arctic sea-ice loss and extreme cold weather—such as the deep freezes that can grip the USA in the winter months—has long been studied by […]

  • Groundwater Reserves In Africa More Resilient To Climate Change Than Thought

    • Date: 08/08/19
    • The Conservation

    The findings of a new study challenge predictions from computer models that freshwater will become scarcer in African drylands as climate change reduces rainfall. Groundwater reserves in Africa are estimated to be 20 times larger than the water stored in lakes and reservoirs above ground. These are the freshwater stores that flow in rocks and sediment […]

  • For Most Of The Last 10,000 Years, Greenland Ice Sheet Was Smaller Than Today

    • Date: 07/08/19
    • Kenneth Richard, No Tricks Zone

    Most of the ice currently melting on Greenland only formed during the last few hundred years. A new paper (Axford et al., 2019) reveals NW Greenland’s “outlet glaciers were smaller than today from ~9.4 to 0.2 ka BP” (9,400 to 200 years before 1950), and that “most of the land-based margin reached its maximum Holocene […]

  • July 2019 Was Not the Warmest on Record

    • Date: 02/08/19
    • Roy Spencer

    July 2019 was probably the 4th warmest of the last 41 years. Global “reanalysis” datasets need to start being used for monitoring of global surface temperatures. We are now seeing news reports (e.g. CNN, BBC, Reuters) that July 2019 was the hottest month on record for global average surface air temperatures. One would think that the very best […]

  • Volcanoes Shaped the Climate Before Humankind

    • Date: 30/07/19
    • University of Bern

    Five large volcanic eruptions occurred in the early 19th century. They caused cooling and – as a study led by the University of Bern shows – to drying in the monsoon regions and glaciers growing in the Alps. The study shows that the pre-industrial climate was not constant: if one takes this cold period as […]
