• Link Between Low Sun and Low Temperatures?

    • Date: 15/04/10

    The media have hailed this research paper as demonstrating a link, for England at least, between low solar activity and lower winter temperatures. The authors were seemingly interested in seeing if there was a link between the recent European low winter temperatures and the low solar activity we are experiencing. It was nice to see […]

  • Wet Spells Getting Longer in Europe

    • Date: 12/04/10

    According to Olga Zolina of the Meteorologisches Institut, Universitaet Bonn, Bonn, Germany, and colaborators, writing in Geophysical Research Letters, as the world’s climate changes, precipitation patterns are also changing. Previous studies have found that in Europe the amount of precipitation has been increasing by about 15 – 20% over the past 60 years. It is […]

  • Decadal Doubts

    • Date: 09/04/10

    It is now clear to most climate researchers that something has been stopping the world from warming in the past decade. During this time, according to the standard hypothesis, levels of man-made greenhouse gasses have increased in our atmosphere so the temperature should have gone up. It obviously hasn’t so what is cooling our world? […]

  • Flowrate of World’s 4th Largest River Linked to Solar Cycle

    • Date: 05/04/10

    A new study has postulated a link between solar activity and the flowrate of one of the largest rivers in the world, and suggests that it will lose water as the current low solar activity continues. The quantity of water flowing down a river is a good climatic indicator since it integrates rainfall over large […]

  • Increase in Arctic ice confounds doomsayers

    • Date: 03/04/10

    The amount of sea ice covering the Arctic dramatically increased last month, reaching levels not seen at this time of year for nearly a decade. Returning ice – after years of declining cover – has astonished climate scientists who blamed unusually cold weather over the Bering Sea. Researchers said they recorded the most ice in […]

  • Greenland Ice Sheet Losing Ice Mass on Northwest Coast

    • Date: 31/03/10

    Ice loss from the Greenland ice sheet, which has been increasing during the past decade over its southern region, is now moving up its northwest coast, according to a new international study. Led by the Denmark Technical Institute’s National Space Institute in Copenhagen and involving the University of Colorado at Boulder, the study indicated the […]

  • Urban ‘green’ spaces may contribute to global warming

    • Date: 30/03/10

    Challenging the notion that urban “green” spaces help counteract greenhouse gas emissions, new research has found — in Southern California at least — that mowing and other lawn maintenance emit almost as much or more greenhouse gases than the well-tended grass extracts from the air. Turfgrass lawns remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis […]

  • Another Climate Scare Laid To Rest

    • Date: 27/03/10

    Europe can rest easy. A new analysis of data from satellites and drifting sensors finds no evidence that the Atlantic portion of the “Conveyor Belt”—the great warm current flowing ultimately from the Pacific toward the frigid far North Atlantic—is slowing. Scientists and the public had worried that global warming might be shutting down the conveyor […]
