Never Take Alarmist Sloganeering About Future Climate At Face Value

I recently read a paper in the law literature celebrating the rise of “climate risk disclosure” requirements now being imposed on public companies. The author discussed at length why the market has failed to price climate risk into investments and…

The Claim That 37% Of Heat Deaths Are Caused By Global Warming Is Absurd

The media has been reporting that 37% “of warm-season heat-related deaths can be attributed to anthropogenic climate change.” They gleaned this from the peer-reviewed paper, “The burden of heat-related mortality attributable to recent human-induced climate change”, in Nature Climate Change by Vicedo-Cabrera and a…

Human-induced climate change responsible for a third of heat-related deaths – Emory News Center

Emory researchers are part of a sweeping new study that finds that more than one in three heat-related deaths can be attributed to human-made climate change. Rollins School of Public Health assistant professor Noah Scovronick, PhD, is second author on…

The Hot Debate Over Solar Geoengineering and Its Impact on Climate – The Wall Street Journal

As concerns grow about how quickly the world can curb greenhouse-gas emissions, some scientists want to research an additional approach to the problem of global warming: solar geoengineering. In contrast to preventing heat-trapping emissions from being added to the atmosphere,…

Northern forest fires could accelerate climate change

(Boston University) New research shows that the global models used to project how Earth’s climate will change in the future underestimate the impact of forest fires and drying climate on forests’ ability to capture and store atmospheric carbon.

Climate Change, Carbon And A Science Lesson For Boris Johnson

Dear Prime Minister ‘Climate change’, ‘global warming’, ‘climate emergency’, ‘planetary emergency’ are different names describing the same apocalypse. Since you’re ‘following the science’ you’ll appreciate that precise language is needed to describe events. You see, there are actually two types…

Corals carefully organize proteins to form rock-hard skeletons

(Rutgers University) Rutgers scientists have shown that coral structures consist of a biomineral containing a highly organized organic mix of proteins that resembles what is in our bones. Their study, published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, shows for the first time that several proteins are organized spatially – a process that’s critical to forming a rock-hard coral skeleton.

Climate change cut global farming productivity 21% since 1960s

(Cornell University) Despite important agricultural advancements to feed the world in the last 60 years, a Cornell University-led study shows that global farming productivity has fallen 21% since the 1960s – the equivalent of losing about seven years of farm productivity increases – all thanks to climate change.
