Study vindicates climate models accused of 'missing the pause'
Climate models can recreate the slowdown in global warming since 1998, as long as they correctly factor in crucial variables such as the state of the El Niño system, new research has shown.
Climate engineering offers little hope of mitigation
Injecting particles into the stratosphere to shade and cool the Earth will never stop climate change. This is the shocking claim made in the July issue of Nature Climate Change by an international group ...
The problem of false balance when reporting on science
How do you know the people billed as science experts that you see, hear and read about in the media are really all that credible? Or have they been included just to create a perception of balance in the coverage ...
Research shows greater potential for solar power
Concentrating solar power (CSP) could supply a large fraction of the power supply in a decarbonized energy system, shows a new study of the technology and its potential practical application.
Coastal winds intensifying with climate change, study says
Summer winds are intensifying along the west coasts of North and South America and southern Africa and climate change is a likely cause, a new study says.
Obama mocks foes who brand climate change a 'liberal plot'
US President Barack Obama mocked Republicans who reject global warming as a "liberal plot," as he pumped up a crowd of environmental activists in Washington.
To address climate change, nothing substitutes for reducing CO2 emissions
The politically expedient way to mitigate climate change is essentially no way at all, according to a comprehensive new study by University of Chicago climatologist Raymond Pierrehumbert.
New study shows Indonesia's disastrous deforestation
Satellite images have found that Indonesia's ancient forests, a cradle of biodiversity and a buffer against climate change, have shrunk much faster than thought, scientists said on Sunday.
Changing Antarctic winds create new sea level threat
New research shows projected changes in the winds circling the Antarctic may accelerate global sea level rise significantly more than previously estimated.
Australia carbon tax repeal a 'perfect storm of stupidity'
Australia's axing of its carbon tax and a plan to replace it by offering incentives to polluters to increase their energy efficiency is "the perfect storm of stupidity", scientists and academics argue.
New understanding of ocean passageway could aid climate change forecasts
(Phys.org) —The passageway that links the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean is acting differently because of climate change, and now its new behavior could, in turn, affect climate in both ocean basins ...
A win-win-win solution for biofuel, climate, and biodiversity
Fossil fuel emissions release billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere each year, which is changing the climate and threatening the sustainability of life on planet Earth. In Brazil, the demand for ...
Climate-cooling arctic lakes soak up greenhouse gases, study finds
New University of Alaska Fairbanks research indicates that arctic thermokarst lakes stabilize climate change by storing more greenhouse gases than they emit into the atmosphere.
What do Google searches tell us about our climate change fears?
Republicans search the Net for information about the weather, climate change and global warming during extremely hot or cold spells. Democrats Google these terms when they experience changes in the average temperatures. These ...
