NASA Releases New Climate Forecasts Through 2100

The good news is that NASA has just released research on how temperature and rainfall patterns worldwide may change because of the concentrations of greenhouse gas growing in Earth’s atmosphere. The space scientists have based their conclusions on historical measurements and robust scenarios of increasing carbon dioxide produced from 21 climate models: specifically, General Circulation […]

Yet Another Study Links Changing Climate And Weather Extremes

Last week, the British journal Nature Climate Change published study findings linking anthropogenic warming caused by the burning of fossil fuels and atmospheric release of carbon dioxide with weather events. Climate change has caused about 75% of all hot-temperature extremes worldwide in the past 100 years. Climate change has also caused about 18% of heavy rainfall. The

Eastern European Tree Rings Reveal Climate Variability and Human History

Adding to the growing evidence that ‘things are not as they once were’, a new dendrochronological study has found that socio-cultural disruptions in Eastern Europe during the past millennium coincided with periods of decreased temperature, and recent temperature in the region is warmer than at any previous time over the past thousand years. Oh, dendrochronological is the

Complete Melt of Greenland Ice Sheet Closer Than First Thought

According to a new study the Greenland ice sheet is possibly more vulnerable to the temperature increase of global warming than previously estimated. According to the study, conducted by scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and published in the journal Nature Climate Change, the temperature

Warming Will Continue Even with Immediate Eradication of Greenhouse Gases

Even if we somehow managed to restore our planet’s atmosphere to zero greenhouse gases, temperatures would still continue to rise by a few tenths of a degree over the next 10 years. That is the best case scenario discovered by researchers who have written a paper to be published online in the journal Nature. Written

Five Thousand Years of Rapid Greenland Climate Changes

Scientists have long known that climate change was happening in West Greenland over the past 5,000 years, but until now they have not been able to quantify the specific conditions of that change. New research has allowed scientists to predict that abrupt temperature changes by as much as 4 or 5 degrees Celsius will have had profound implications for the peoples that occupied western Greenland during that time.

'Temperature Leads Carbon' Climate Denial Crock {VIDEO}

From our favorite climate denial de-crocker on the web, here’s another great video from him (recently updated). As he summarizes on Climate Denial Crock of the Week:

“For a lot of climate deniers, this is their penultimate argument, the master climate crock. They think it’s the stroke to end all arguments.  It’s only the most outrageous and dishonest cherry pick of all time.”
