No Simultaneous Warming of Hemispheres in 20 000 Years

One of the common arguments to dismiss those supporting the idea that the climate is warming as a result of manmade carbon dioxide emissions is that global warming is a natural thing; that it has always varied and that sometimes temperatures rise and that this is a perfectly natural occurrence. However in a new study it has been shown that a simultaneous warming of both the Southern and Northern Hemispheres has never happened in the past 20,000 years.

Wars, Social Upheavals, Caused by Climate Changes, New Analysis Claims

Were history’s “golden ages” and “dark ages”, its wars, epidemics and great social upheavals, ultimately due to climate shifts? A new analysis by researchers from the University of Hong Kong find causal links between 14 key, socio-economic, ecological, and demographic variables, and the rise of “large-scale human crisis” events, such as economic downturns, famines, epidemics, social upheavals/rebellions, and war. The strongest linked variable to all these crises events was ‘climate’ The researchers also determined a “crisis threshold” that accurately backwards-predicted the major conflicts and upheavals over the past millennium.

Pending Solar Minimum Might Mean Colder UK Winters

Scientists predict that our Sun is heading into a period of minimal activity, and in a study released Tuesday, researchers believe that this minimum may increase the probability of unusually cold winter temperatures throughout the United Kingdom.
