Temperatures to rise 0.3-4.8 C this century, UN panel says
A UN panel said Friday it was more certain than ever that humans were causing global warming and predicted temperatures would rise by 0.3 to 4.8 degrees Celsius (0.5-8.6 degrees Fahrenheit) this century.
UN climate scientist: Sandy no coincidence
(AP)—Though it's tricky to link a single weather event to climate change, Hurricane Sandy was "probably not a coincidence" but an example of the extreme weather events that are likely to strike the U.S. ...
Climate tug of war disrupting Australian atmospheric circulation patterns
(Phys.org) —The study, in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, demonstrates that mid-latitude high pressure zones (30 S-45 S) are being pushed further into the Southern Ocean by rising global temperatures associ ...
Global warming is likely to increase severe thunderstorm conditions in US, researchers find
In 2012, 11 weather disasters in the United States crossed the billion-dollar threshold in economic losses. Seven of those events were related to severe thunderstorms. New climate analyses led by Stanford scientists indicate ...
Climate change: drought benchmark is flawed, study says
A scientific method used in a landmark UN report that said warming was intensifying global drought is badly flawed, a study published on Wednesday said.
Scientists say new signs of global warming in Russian Arctic
The Russian Arctic is losing ice cover and being inhabited by species from the south in the latest sign of climate change, according to a group of Russian scientists.
Melting permafrost 'may speed global warming'
Climate talks got down to the nitty-gritty in Doha on Tuesday as developing countries and the European Union (EU) staked out rival positions on the fate of the Kyoto Protocol.
Study shows increased summer melting not increasing annual movement of Greenland ice sheet
Ancient ice melt unearthed in Antarctic mud
Global warming five million years ago may have caused parts of Antarctica's large ice sheets to melt and sea levels to rise by approximately 20 metres, scientists report today in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Scientists warn of 'deadly trio' risk to ailing oceans
Marine scientists warned Thursday that our oceans are declining more rapidly than previously thought—becoming ever warmer and more acidic and losing oxygen at an alarming rate.
High-speed discovery helps measure greenhouse gases from space
(Phys.org) —Scientists have discovered how to measure greenhouse gases 200,000 times faster as the result research by an award-winning PhD student from The University of Western Australia and a US team.
Cause of El Nino abnormality found
(Phys.org) —Unusual El Niños, like those that led to the extraordinary super El Niño years of 1982 and 1997, will occur twice as often under even modest global warming scenarios.
Long-term warming, short-term variability: Why climate change is still an issue
A new study published yesterday suggests that the short-term warming due to increasing greenhouse gases may be less than previously feared. However, when we look at the bigger picture, we still find that cli ...
Ocean and climate: The new theory
Is this the end of a scientific paradigm on the effects of climate change? It would seem that global warming is not intensifying the rise of cold deep water, a phenomenon known as 'upwelling', characteristic ...
