World leaders and negotiators have been asked not to leave the summit until a climate deal is done after Friday afternoon’s talks failed to produce a breakthrough. The European Union environment commissioner, Stavros Dimas, told reporters that "T
The Danish Climate Centre's brochure cites Maslowski's models and claims and reaches the same conclusion as Gore: “Projecting the trend into the future indicates that autumn could become near ice free between 2011 and 2016 (Maslowski, 2009).” This
China said on Thursday a U.S. pledge to mobilize $100 billion a year in climate funds was a "good step," and signaled Beijing was seeking compromise with Washington on its demand for checks on Chinese emissions curbs.
"They are unhappy about these texts being handed to them from above," an African delegate said outside the meeting, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. "They feel these things should be discussed
A surge in sunshine more than 60 years ago helped Swiss Alpine glaciers melt faster than today, even though higher average temperatures are being recorded now with global warming, Swiss researchers said Monday.
A new modeling study from NASA confirms that when tiny air pollution particles we commonly call soot - also known as black carbon - travel along wind currents from densely populated south Asian cities and accumulate over a climate hotspot called the
2009 is likely to be the fifth warmest year on record according to the World Meteorological Organisation, with the current decade being the warmest on record, eclipsing the 1990s, which in turn was warmer than the 1980s.
This Christmas some Norwegians are giving the gift of CO2 Quota certificates. As of now, there's not many takers.
Lord Monckton on Copenhagen and Climategate - Must See!!! 5-part VIDEO.
AP Science Writer, Seth Borenstein, has a problem with those who don’t agree with his views on climate change. In a perfect world, that would mean that the AP would have a problem with him. Apparently, they don’t. DBKP investigates the many problems
For climate science it means that the Hockey Team climatologists’ insistence that human-emitted CO2 is the only thing that could account for the recent warming trend is probably poppycock.
At the deal's heart must be a settlement between the rich world and the developing world covering how the burden of fighting climate change will be divided — and how we will share a newly precious resource: the trillion or so tonnes of carbon that w
here we find another writer choking on the contents of the infamous emails. i do not think many have yet grasped that co2 regulation is not an engine able to change climate.
Al Gore has studied the Climategate emails with his typically rigorous eye and dismissed them as mere piffle: Q: How damaging to your argument was the disclosure of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University? A: To
New analysis released by climate change NGO Sandbag has revealed that the UK’s richest resident, Lakshmi Mittal, CEO and major shareholder of the steel giant ArcelorMittal, could make over £1 billion between now and 2012 from his company’s particip
Just when you thought the global-warming mandarins couldn’t embarrass honest scientists any more than they have, along comes a new scandal. Turns out the mandarins’ temperature-measuring devices in all too many instances sat next to the exhaust fans
"Peatlands only cover about 3 percent of the Earth but they accumulate more carbon than tropical rainforests," says biogeochemist Nancy Dise of Manchester Metropolitan University in England. "
Pressure on this venerable society of physicists, which was founded in 1899 at Columbia University, is coming from members who are squarely in the scientific mainstream and are alarmed at the state of climate science revealed in the leaked e-mail mes
I don't know why I found this uproariously funny: On a normal day Copenhagen's biggest limousine company has 12 vehicles on the road. During the "summit to save the world", which opens here tomorrow, they will have 200.
EPA action to regulate [carbon dioxide] emissions could affect the U.S. economy more directly, and more quickly, than any global deal inked in the Danish capital, where no binding agreement is expected. Many business groups are opposed to EPA efforts

One day after reports that Britain's Met office intends to reexamine 160 years' worth of temperature data, emotions over what's now being dubbed "Climategate" are getting more raw by the day. During a live television faceoff hosted by the BBC, Mar
Many of you are too young to remember, but in 1975 our government pushed "the coming ice age." Random House dutifully printed "THE WEATHER CONSPIRACY … coming of the New Ice Age." This may be the only book ever written by 18 authors. All 18 lived jus
The fight over global warming science is about to cross the Atlantic with a U.S. researcher poised to sue NASA, demanding release of the same kind of climate data that has landed a leading British center in hot water over charges it skewed its data.
Cores drilled from ancient ice sheets as well as of the coral reef and lake sediment varieties show that at the same time as Europe enjoyed average temperatures as warm as today, the tropical Pacific was unusually cold.
In the film, "The Day After Tomorrow," the world gets gripped in ice within the span of a few weeks. Research suggests an eerily similar event might indeed have occurred in the past. There is no reason why such a freeze shouldn't happen again [The En
House Republicans pointed to controversial e-mails leaked from climate scientists and said it was evidence of corruption. Top administration scientists looking at the same thing found no such sign, saying it doesn't change the fact that the world is
