• Ice Caps Melting Far Slower Than Predicted‎

    • Date: 07/09/10

    The Greenland and West Antarctic ice caps are melting at half the speed previously predicted. This finding has emerged from research by a joint US/Dutch team from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, TU Delft and SRON. The scientists have published their findings in the September issue of Nature Geoscience.

  • Climate Change Not Linked To African Wars

    • Date: 06/09/10

    In his popular 2008 book Climate Wars, the US journalist and military historian Gwynne Dyer laid out a daunting scenario. Climate change would put growing pressure on fresh water and food over the coming century, he wrote, triggering social disorder, mass migration and violent conflict. But is there real proof of a link between climate change […]

  • Sun-Earth Coupling

    • Date: 01/09/10

    Our understanding of the influence of solar short-wavelength radiation on the Earth’s upper atmosphere is poorer than many realise. It is a significant area of research as some scientists believe that solar short-wave variations play a greater role in climatic variations than an initial analysis of the amplitude of those variations suggests, especially because of […]

  • Ice Sheet Loss Cut In Half

    • Date: 27/08/10

    Much concern has been raised by climate scientists regarding ice loss from the world’s two remaining continental ice sheets. Rapid loss of ice-mass from the glaciers of Greenland and Antarctica are cited as proof positive of global warming’s onslaught. The latest measurements involve the use of satellite gravimetry, estimating the mass of terrain beneath by […]

  • More Light On The Great Russian Heat Wave

    • Date: 20/08/10

    Last week we presented our analysis of the causes behind this summer’s record-breaking heat wave in western Russia. We summarized the situation thus: But global warming theory doesn’t come anywhere close to explaining why it’s so darn hot this summer in Moscow. Long-term observations suggest a more basic cause—an unusual and unprecedented (at least since 1950) confluence […]

  • Indur Goklany: Global Death Toll From Extreme Weather Events Declining

    • Date: 15/08/10

    A Primer on the Global Death Toll from Extreme Weather Events — Context and Long Term (1900–2008) Trends Background Based on 2000–08 data, extreme weather events are responsible for about 0.05% of all global deaths (31,700 deaths vs. 58.8 million, annually). That is, despite the media attention to such events, extreme weather events have a […]

  • Heat Wave In Russia – Is It From Global Warming?

    • Date: 14/08/10

    There has been considerable discussion of the heat wave in Russia and of the floods in Pakistan and China as to whether these events are from global warming.  Examples of this in the media include Will Russia’s Heat Wave End Its Global-Warming Doubts? By Simon Shuster / Moscow Climate change whips up floods, fire and ice […]
