    The residual dynamics left after adjusting global surface temperature anomalies (1950-2014) for short-term variability from El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and volcanic eruptions have a staircase pattern. Linear trends for three quasi-stable periods 1950-1987, 1988-1997 and 1998-2014 are near zero with nearly all warming occurring during two step-like shifts in the years 1987/1988 and 1997/1998. […]

     The Trump administration is looking to create a “red team” to challenge the accepted science on climate change and the impact of carbon dioxide emissions on the Earth’s temperature, but there is no timeline on when that exercise will occur even though it is “very important,” according to Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt. The […]

    La Niña is now increasingly possible in the next few months, according to a new report released by NOAA. La Niña/El Niño, the periodic cooling/warming of the equatorial eastern and central Pacific Ocean, can shift weather patterns over a period of months, bringing the possibility of more sustained warm, cold, wet or dry weather in parts of the […]

    The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest International Energy Outlook 2017  projects that world energy consumption will grow by 28% between 2015 and 2040. Fossil fuels still to account for more than three-quarters of world energy consumption through 2040. Most of this growth is expected to come from countries that are not in the Organization for Economic […]

    The federal government is aiming to exclude the renewable ­energy target from its looming overhaul of the nation’s power supply in a key decision that will sharpen its divide with Labor on the use of coal and gas to guarantee energy security. The government will leave the existing renewables scheme untouched to avoid a dramatic […]

    It takes a certain mulish obstinacy to keep insisting that it’s capitalism and free markets which are responsible for, rather than the answer to, the coming Eco-Götterdämmerung. But that’s what we’re treated to from George Monbiot this morning. His argument is that capitalism requires growth, growth destroys the environment by consuming it and therefore….well, therefore it’s all […]

    Coal will remain the mainstay fuel for power generation in India in the next two decades despite stiff competition from rapid capacity additions of renewable energy, an official at state-owned Coal India said Tuesday. Thermal coal, which accounts for about 55% of India’s electricity generation, will still account for 48%-54% going up to 2040, even […]
