    • Australian Associated Press

    An area of forest more than half the size of Australia has been discovered, dotted across several continents. The amount discovered is equivalent to 60 per cent of the size of Australia and has increased the estimate of global forest coverage by 10 per cent. Researchers from the University of Adelaide are among the team led […]

    A new global analysis of the distribution of forests and woodlands has “found” 467 million hectares of previously unreported forest – an area equivalent to 60% of the size of Australia. The discovery increases the known amount of global forest cover by around 9%, and will significantly boost estimates of how much carbon is stored in […]

    Europe had an extended period of colder-than-normal weather in April accompanied by lots of snow and now much of the US is experiencing an extended period of colder-than-normal weather as we transition from early-to-mid May. Snowfall has been running at above normal levels this winter across the Northern Hemisphere and continues at those higher-than-normal levels […]

  • New Study Confirms: The Warming ‘Pause’ Is Real And Revealing

    • Date: 04/05/17
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    A new paper has been published in the Analysis section of Nature called Reconciling controversies about the ‘global warming hiatus.’ It confirms that the ‘hiatus’ or ‘pause’ is real. It is also rather revealing. It attempts to explain the ‘Pause’ by looking into what is known about climate variability. They say that four years after […]

  • New Study: Some Coral Reefs Are Adapting To Warming Oceans Just Fine

    • Date: 03/05/17
    • Wildlife Conservation Society

    A new WCS study reveals evidence that some corals are adapting to warming ocean waters – potentially good news in the face of recent reports of global coral die offs due to extreme warm temperatures in 2016. The study appears in the latest issue of Marine Ecology Progress Series. The study looked at responses to […]

    Global temperatures have dropped 0.5° Celsius in April according to U.S meteorologist Ryan Maue. In the Northern Hemisphere they plunged a massive 1°C . As the record 2015/16 El Nino levels off, the global warming hiatus is back with a vengeance. Global Temperatures Drop To Pre-El Nino Levels Despite NOAA’s Denial, A Growing Number Of Studies Confirm the Global Warming […]

    Drought in the U.S. fell to a record low this week, with just 6.1% of the lower 48 states currently experiencing such dry conditions, federal officials announced Thursday. That’s the lowest percentage in the 17-year history of the weekly U.S. Drought Monitor report. The previous record low occurred in July 2010, when 7.7% of the contiguous U.S. was […]

  • China Cooled Nearly 0.2°C During Global Warming Hiatus

    • Date: 17/04/17
    • Wenling An et al. (2017), Earth and Space Science 15 March 2017

    During the global warming hiatus between 1998 and 2014  temperatures in the whole of China declined sharply, dropping by nearly 0.2°C by the end of the hiatus period. The delayed cooling observed in the Tibetan Plateau was even steeper. Abstract A reduction in the warming rate for the global surface temperature since the late 1990s has attracted […]
