Peer-reviewed pocket-calculator climate model exposes serious errors in complex computer models
A major peer-reviewed climate physics paper in the first issue (January 2015: vol. 60 no. 1) of the prestigious Science Bulletin (formerly Chinese Science Bulletin), the journal of the Chinese Academy of Sc ...
Global warming slowdown: No systematic errors in climate models
Sceptics who still doubt anthropogenic climate change have now been stripped of one of their last-ditch arguments: It is true that there has been a warming hiatus and that the surface of the earth has warmed ...
Study shows increase of CO2 in the atmosphere is lower than predicted because of plants
Statistical analysis rules out natural-warming hypothesis with more than 99 percent certainty
An analysis of temperature data since 1500 all but rules out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is just a natural fluctuation in the earth's climate, according to a new study by McGill ...
Climate models don't over-predict warming, study shows
If you listen to climate change skeptics, Earth's surface hasn't warmed appreciably in the last 15 years, and any "record" set last year is just the result of the planet doing what the planet naturally does.
Why global warming is taking a break
The average temperature on Earth has barely risen over the past 16 years. ETH researchers have now found out why. And they believe that global warming is likely to continue again soon.
Cloud mystery solved: Global temperatures to rise at least 4C by 2100
Global average temperatures will rise at least 4°C by 2100 and potentially more than 8°C by 2200 if carbon dioxide emissions are not reduced according to new research published in Nature. Scientists found global climat ...
Berkeley Lab scientists identify new driver behind Arctic warming
Scientists have identified a mechanism that could turn out to be a big contributor to warming in the Arctic region and melting sea ice.
A global temperature conundrum: Cooling or warming climate?
When the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently requested a figure for its annual report, to show global temperature trends over the last 10,000 years, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Zhengyu ...
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.
Dire outlook despite global warming 'pause': study
A global warming "pause" over the past decade may invalidate the harshest climate change predictions for the next 50 to 100 years, a study said Sunday—though levels remain in the danger zone.
Scientists narrow global warming range
(Phys.org) —Australian scientists have narrowed the predicted range of global warming through groundbreaking new research.
Small volcanic eruptions partly explain 'warming hiatus'
The "warming hiatus" that has occurred over the last 15 years has been partly caused by small volcanic eruptions.
