Direct evidence for a positive feedback in climate change
A new study has confirmed the existence of a positive feedback operating in climate change whereby warming itself may amplify a rise in greenhouse gases resulting in additional warming.
Cosmic radiation causes fluctuations in global temperatures, but doesn't cause climate change
New discovery may allow scientists to make fuel from CO2 in the atmosphere
(Phys.org) —Excess carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere created by the widespread burning of fossil fuels is the major driving force of global climate change, and researchers the world over are looking ...
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 ...
Simulation explains why Asian glaciers are not melting
Researchers find temperature feedback magnifying climate warming in Arctic
Warming climates intensify greenhouse gas given out by oceans
Rising global temperatures could increase the amount of carbon dioxide naturally released by the world's oceans, fuelling further climate change, a study suggests.
Global warming will open unexpected new shipping routes in Arctic, researchers find
Shipping lanes through the Arctic Ocean won't put the Suez and Panama canals out of business anytime soon, but global warming will make these frigid routes much more accessible than ever imagined by melting ...
Climatologist challenges low-end claims of Intergovernmental panel
Researchers claim satellite data proves global warming caused by humans
Researchers find proof of global cooling after Chicxulub asteroid impact
Earth is warmer today than during 70 to 80 percent of the past 11,300 years
Using data from 73 sites around the world, scientists have been able to reconstruct Earth's temperature history back to the end of the last Ice Age, revealing that the planet today is warmer than it has been ...
As climate changes, boreal forests to shift north, relinquish more carbon than expected
It's difficult to imagine how a degree or two of warming will affect a location. Will it rain less? What will happen to the area's vegetation? New Berkeley Lab research offers a way to envision a warmer future. It maps how ...
