As of this morning, the severe storm risk area covered an estimated 162 million people, or 56 percent of the United States, according to weather experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that climate change is real — the highest level in two years — as the public trusted its own observations of rising temperatures, a poll said Tuesday.
For decades, the heartland of America has been the breadbasket of the world. Unfortunately, those days will shortly come to an end.
The IPCC might have outlived its usefulness. Let’s see what the next assessment report comes up with. But we are getting diminishing returns from these assessments
Climate change is altering the face of the Himalayas, devastating farming communities and making Mount Everest increasingly treacherous to climb, some of the world’s top mountaineers have warned.
There never was a “leaker” in the shameful Fakegate scandal. In the end, there was only a forger, a fraudster and a thief. Alarmist scientist Peter Gleick has admitted that the latter two were one and the same person – himself.
Summary of Climate Change “Science” Is climate change actually occuring? If so, are human activities THE cause, or even perhaps a contributing cause? If not, can human activities significantly affect climate? This article discusses 9 scenar
Concerned Scientists Reply on Global Warming Article is a follow-up article to No Need to Panic About Global Warming originally posted on 1/27/2012. Follow-up replies to critics of original post. Article includes links to critics' remarks. In a
Peter H. Gleick, a water and climate analyst studying aspects of global warming has been a critic of organizations and individuals casting doubt on the seriousness of greenhouse-driven climate change illegally obtained Heartland Institute documents.
The South China Sea, although far from tranquil, has yet to revert to the volatility and violence witnessed in the late 1980s.
He cites the winter of 1683/84, when the Thames River in England stayed frozen with a thick layer of ice for nearly two months, as an example. "And let’s not forget the frigid winter of 1812, when Napoleon's Grande Armee was decimated by the ext
"Our data show that Earth has been accumulating heat in the ocean at a rate of half a watt per square meter (10.8 square feet), with no sign of a decline," Loeb said. "This extra energy will eventually find its way back into the atmosphere and inc
Police in Capitán Prat Province, Chile, have stopped a refrigerated truck carrying nearly 6 tons of ice bound for cocktail bars in Santiago, and arrested the driver on suspicion of having thieved the ice from a glacier in a Patagonian national park.
The cold weather also left buses struggling to drive up the Italian capital's slushy hills, and cars without tyre chains were temporarily ordered off the road. Scores of vehicles were blocked for hours on the ring road around the city after cars
"For several years our team have been testing the performance of baby coral fishes in sea water containing higher levels of dissolved CO2 - and it is now pretty clear that they sustain significant disruption to their central nervous system, which is
...and if NASA scientists Are Right the Thames Will Be Freezing over Again
A similar series of tropical volcanic eruptions around 1450, which initially blocked sunlight but also extended Arctic ice cover and increased ice-berg production in the North Atlantic, coincided with another pulse of ice-field growth and the flash-f
According to IMK studies, occurrence of the Arctic ozone hole was mainly due to the extraordinarily cold temperatures in the ozone layer that is located at about 18 km height in the stratosphere, i.e. the second layer of Earth's atmosphere. There,
Nine of the 10 warmest years since 1880 have occurred since the year 2000, as the Earth has experienced sustained higher temperatures than in any decade during the 20t
They found strong indications that, at a continental scale, cold-loving plants traditionally found in alpine regions are being pushed out of many habitats by warm-loving plants.
Frigid freshwater flowing into the Arctic Ocean from three of Russia's mighty rivers was diverted hundreds of miles to a completely different part of the ocean in response to a decades-long shift in atmospheric pressure associated with the phenomeno
"We know from past records that Earth's orbital characteristics during our present interglacial period are a dead ringer for orbital characteristics in an interglacial period 780,000 years ago," said Channell. The pattern suggests that our curre
Their tests showed that these inexpensive materials achieved some of the highest carbon dioxide removal rates ever reported for humid air, under conditions that stymie other related materials. After capturing carbon dioxide, the materials give it up
Fires are an important factor in many terrestrial ecosystems. They are a result of the interaction of the weather, vegetation and land use, which makes them very sensitive to global change.
For a city to qualify as having a white Christmas, Environment Canada must note at least two centimeters (0.79 inches) of snow on the ground at 7 am on December 25. This month has been on average six to seven degrees (Celsius) warmer than normal a
r Semiletov's team published a study in 2010 estimating that the methane emissions from this region were about eight million tonnes a year, but the latest expedition suggests this is a significant underestimate of the phenomenon.
Scientists have used satellite data from NASA-built Landsat missions to confirm that more than 20 years of warming temperatures in northern Quebec, Canada, have resulted in an increase in the amount and extent of shrubs and grasses.
But environmental groups said negotiators had failed to show the ambition necessary to cut emissions by levels that would limit global temperature rises to no more than 2C and avoid "dangerous" climate change. The EU had come to the talks in Dur
Any work we have done in the past is done on the back of the research grants we get and has been well hidden. I’ve discussed this with the main funder [U.S. Dept. Of Energy] in the past and they are happy about not releasing the original station data
“His [model] is the most extreme but he is also the best modeller around,” he told the Telegraph’s Nick Collins. “It is really showing the fall-off in ice volume is so fast that it is going to bring us to zero very quickly. 2015 is a very serious pr
