The Agulhas Current, located in the southwest of the Indian Ocean, transports high density salt water to the southern tip of Africa, where part of it escapes to the South Atlantic, contributing to the strength of the global circulation of this ocean.
n the same year greenhouse emissions fell, the EPA, which should be an acronym for Eternally Panicked and Alarmed, determined "that climate change caused by emissions of greenhouse gases threatens the public's health and the environment." Regardin
A study published by Evan Mills, an energy analyst at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, asserts that indoor pot cultivation contributes to global warming.
If you're sitting on a bench in New York City's Central Park in winter, you're probably freezing. After all, the average temperature in January is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. But if you were just across the pond in Porto, Portugal, which shares New Yor
The freshwater content of the upper Arctic Ocean has increased by about 20 percent since the 1990s. This corresponds to a rise of approx. 8,400 cubic kilometres and has the same magnitude as the volume of freshwater annually exported on average from
“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States. . . . Resources and energy must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling...
NASA's Project Icebridge estimates show that Artctic sea ice has now melted back to 1/2 the size of the continental U.S. (3,717,813 sq mi). Scientists like Tom Wagner are investigating how much more will melt and when.
Geologic records show that Ice Ages are the norm, punctuated by brief periods of warming. Now one of the most highly respected paleoclimatologists has weighed in and is warning everyone to prepare for a new Ice Age. A new Ice Age? Then what's all th
The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is one of the most important large-scale ocean current systems controlling the Earth's climate. But just how stable will it remain as climate changes and how well do models represent its stabili
Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, along with colleagues in Portugal and Mexico, plotted the yearly spring bloom of phytoplankton-tiny plants at the base of the ocean food chain-in the Arctic Ocean and found the peak t
There is not much to be happy about these days in Happy, Texas. Main Street is shuttered but for the Happy National Bank, slowly but inexorably disappearing into a High Plains wind that turns all to dust. The old Picture House, the cinema, has closed
Too bad. Nuclear power is the solution to global warming.
Oh, brother! Will these clowns ever stop? Okay, that is obviously a rhetorical question, because obviously they will not. Ever stop, that is. California Democrat (natch) Representative Henry Waxman declared during a speech at the (George Soros
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an international (obviously) agency that has been created to regulate, monitor and encourage the use of renewable energy in the world. While not yet a United Nations organization, it is their drea
After a regional nuclear war, average global temperatures would drop by 2.25 degrees F (1.25 degrees C) for two to three years afterward, the models suggest.
If history is an example, it is quite possible that this season's arctic freeze in the Northern Hemisphere, as well as other weather patterns such as the cyclone in Australia, are results mainly of this recent volcanic event on Iceland. Indeed, this
NASA and the ESA agree, and so does the Russian space agency, Roscosmos-the sun is headed for a Grand Solar Minimum and a Grand Cooling will commence. The aptly named Grand Cooling is exactly what it implies: the sun is going to cool. That cooling wi
Global climate trend since Nov. 16, 1978: +0.14 C per decade January temperatures (preliminary) Global composite temp.: -0.01 C (about 0.02 degrees Fahrenheit) below 30-year average for January.
Don't let anyone tell you that Ice Ages take thousands of years to happen. After all, anyone that researches what happened to the Woolly Mammoths some 10,000 to 11,000 years ago in the tundra of northern Siberia will understand that an Ice Age and m
Man-made global warming (also known as climate change) claims have been thoroughly discredited by the “scientists” who perpetrated them through leaked e-mails in the ‘Climategate’ scandal. It seems like it should be a dead issue, but the truth is tha
The availability of real-time information on sea ice conditions in ice covered seas has always been important, not only to strategic military operations, but to the economies of those countries that border the Arctic and its marginal seas. Knowledge
Another mammoth Icelandic volcano, Baroarbunga, is ready to erupt. This one could dwarf the Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano that blew in 2010 causing havoc throughout Europe. Baroarbunga's last major eruption was horrendous. It changed the weather
Geoengineering could cause more problems than the global warming it aims to stop
NASA has been warning about it…scientific papers have been written about it…geologists have seen its traces in rock strata and ice core samples…Now "it" is here: an unstoppable magnetic pole shift that has sped up and is causing life-threatening ha
The record-setting snow and cold afflicting much of the nation in recent weeks doesn’t seem to jibe with Al Gore’s dire warnings about global warming. But Gore has an explanation for what’s causing the wintry conditions: global warming.
Yet while people in Atlanta learn to shovel snow, the weather 2,000 miles to the north has been freakishly warm the past two winters. Throughout northeastern Canada and Greenland, temperatures in December ran as much as 15 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Friday called on the United States and Europe to take the lead in combating climate change, rather than waiting for others to act.
A new report by a U.K. House of Commons committee maintains "some reservations" about previous investigations into "Climategate," the leaking of thousands of e-mails between climate researchers. Despite these reservations, the committee recommends mo
Massive depopulation led to lower CO2 emissions, increased forest growth
US Navy PIPS data shows that the area of ice greater than 2.5 metres thick – has doubled since the same date in 2008.
