Solar geoengineering: Can we cool the planet? – DW (English)

“There is no doubt that humans are able to artificially cool the planet,” explains David Keith from Harvard University. Keith is a researcher in solar engineering — a very controversial field. Mostly because it’s all about discovering if and how…

On borrowed time: How long to a Miocene-like tropical ~+4°C world?

On borrowed time: How long to a Miocene-like tropical ~+4°C world? by A/Prof Andrew Glikson Earth and climate scientist Toward late this century global temperatures are likely to either reach super-tropical levels of >>14°C or/and extreme levels of storminess consequent…

Is the IPCC creating false perceptions, again?

IPCC AR6 Report The Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report (WG1 AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) raises the question: Is the IPCC seeking to downplay the dire situation that we are in, again? …

Climate Change Henchmen: Storm, Flood, Heat, Smoke and Fire

As climate change strikes with ever greater ferocity, five henchmen dominate the news: Storm, Flood, Heat, Smoke and Fire. During the first 6 months of 2021, there have been 8 separate billion-dollar weather and climate disaster events across the United…

Earth’s cryosphere shrinking by 87,000 square kilometers per year

(American Geophysical Union) A new study in AGU’s journal Earth’s Future reports the first global assessment of the extent of snow and ice cover on Earth’s surface–a critical factor cooling the planet through reflected sunlight–and its response to warming temperatures.

Heatwaves and the danger of the Arctic Ocean heating up

 Heatwaves and Jet Stream Changes Heatwaves are increasingly hitting higher latitudes, as illustrated by the forecasts below. The background behind this is that the temperature rise caused by people’s emissions is also causing changes to the jet streams.  [ click…

Creating cooler cities

(University of Pittsburgh) Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering used a Computational Fluid Dynamics model to find ways to decrease cost and increase usage of cooler surfaces. The paper, published in the journal Nature Communications, examined the possibility of applying cooler surfaces to just half the surfaces in a city.
