Several major companies issued a joint call Wednesday for the United States to enact legislation to battle climate change, saying that the issue was critical to their businesses.
v, Director of the Center for Russian Science at the Moscow University of Intellectual Sciences warns about the apocalyptic scenarios floating around. “The feared global warming left the worry of the ozone hole in the shadows. In the meantime, the oz
Which is more important, pandas or pinot? Researchers say that is a question conservationists and wine-growers will have to answer in the coming years as climate change sparks a hunt for cooler places to grow wine grapes
The first study of global warming's effects on clear-air turbulence offers some uncomfortable predictions.
NASA’s James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and a controversial and highly vocal voice of catastrophic, human-induced climate change anounced plans to retire and then immediately sue his former employer.
Climate change is expanding Antarctica's sea ice, according to a scientific study in the journal Nature Geoscience.
The world of global warming alarmists is increasingly resembling a madhouse, with conservationists falling over each other trying to salvage the last shreds of credibility. Very funny.
Ten thousand years ago, most of Canada was covered with ice. This would have reflected most of the summer sunlight received there back into space, and would have had a huge cooling effect on the planet. The 1990 IPCC report correctly showed this, wit
No, the world ISN'T getting warmer (as you may have noticed).
Tans told the Associated Press the major factor was an increase in fossil-fuel use. "It's just a testament to human influence being dominant", he said. "The prospects of keeping climate change below that [two-degree goal] are fading away." Pr
"We are trying to promote saving the Earth, not using up our natural resources," criticized one educator
"An important part of the global air motion in the mid-latitudes of the Earth normally takes the form of waves wandering around the planet, oscillating between the tropical and the Arctic regions. So when they swing up, these waves suck warm air f
North Korea just annulled the 1953 armistice ending its war with South Korea. China and Japan are locked in a dispute over an island chain.
However, when the climate is warmer, water levels build up beneath the ice and allow it to float higher above the rocks, cutting down on the friction. Researchers have reported that the speed of the ice shelf movement has nearly doubled in recent yea
See Canada's glaciers while you still can. Their melting is irreversible, according to projections based on real-world data and validated by satellite images
The new scenarios are the simple end result of greenhouse gases emitted to our atmosphere by any number of societal evolution pathways. It's a simpler process, and it updates the old scenarios prepared in 2000 with current greenhouse gas data. It al
A new study indicates the possible positive in the low sea ice levels throughout the Arctic: a new, faster trans-Atlantic shipping route by 2040.
Any other time news of this magnitude becomes public, it would typically be seen as a gigantic story. But when a respected NYT earth-science blog unearths a damning report, downplaying a formerly impending situation, one would think it would become o
For the first time, we have proof that climate change has led to a humanitarian disaster.
Global warming was once the buzz topic of political debate, but times have changed and economics have bumped climate change to the bottom of the priority list.
Andrew Lo is a Professor of finance at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
"….And every child will have a cute puppy, about yay big…." Earlier this week in his State of the Union address President Obama made some observations on climate change so brimming with falsehoods I'm surprised his nose didn't fall off.
"I’LL BELIEVE IT when I see it.”
Spurred by real urgency over the corporate driven ruin of the environment, a growing social movement is taking shape that will be on display this Sunday, February 17, when tens of thousands descend on the streets of Washington, D.C. in a show of powe
We're not protesting against Obama, say groups, we're applying the pressure he's requested
After Earth's mean surface temperature climbed sharply through the 1990s, the increase has levelled off nearly completely at its 2000 level. Ocean warming also appears to have stabilised somewhat, despite the fact that CO2 emissions and other anthro
Presidential decisions often turn out to be far less significant than imagined, but every now and then what a president decides actually determines how the world turns.
Pipelines used to be things that were just built without blinking. It is said that there are enough pipelines now in the US to encircle the Earth 25 times with enough left over to also tie a bow around it.
IT'S a solar double whammy. Not only does sunlight melt Arctic ice, but it also speeds up the conversion of frozen organic matter into carbon dioxide.
