Simulating 195 Million Years of Global Climate in the Mesozoic – Eos

The Mesozoic, which stretched from about 252 million to 66 million years ago, was a pivotal period in Earth’s history. In addition to being the age of the dinosaurs, it was when the supercontinent Pangaea began to separate into the…

Science Magazine Blows The Whistle On Implausibly Hot Climate Models

Leading climate scientists conceded that models used to estimate how much the world will warm with rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are running too hot. “It’s become clear over the last year or so that we can’t…

Capturing Climate Change – IEEE Spectrum

This is part of IEEE Spectrum’s special report: Critical Challenges 2002: Technology Takes On The government of Tuvalu, a Pacific Island nation, made a plea last summer for countries to take in Tuvalu evacuees, fearing a rising sea level will…

Scientists understood physics of climate change in the 1800s – thanks to a woman named Eunice Foote | Sylvia G. Dee – Louisiana Illuminator

Eunice Foote described the greenhouse gas effects of carbon dioxide in 1856. Carlyn Iverson / NOAA Climate.gov Long before the current political divide over climate change, and even before the U.S. Civil War (1861-1865), an American scientist named Eunice Foote…

By Sylvia G. Dee 5 minute Read advertisement Long before the current political divide over climate change, and even before the Civil War, an American scientist named Eunice Foote documented the underlying cause of today’s climate change crisis. advertisement advertisement…

Scientists understood physics of climate change in the 1800s – thanks to a woman named Eunice Foote – The Conversation US

Long before the current political divide over climate change, and even before the U.S. Civil War (1861-1865), an American scientist named Eunice Foote documented the underlying cause of today’s climate change crisis. The year was 1856. Foote’s brief scientific paper…

Hotter here, wetter there: How and why climate change will remake our world – The Times of Israel

Left to its own devices, nature is an artwork of balance and cycles. Carbon dioxide, for example — the most abundant global warming gas — produced by the likes of oceans, erupting volcanoes and decomposing life, is absorbed by forests…

Arrival of land plants changed Earth’s climate control system

(University College London) In a new study, published in the journal Nature, researchers looked at samples from rocks spanning the last three billion years and found evidence of a dramatic change in how the carbon cycle functioned about 400 million years ago, when plants started to colonise land.

Climate regulation changed with the proliferation of marine animals and terrestrial plants

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Earth’s climate was relatively stable for a long period of time. For three billion years, temperatures were mostly warm and carbon dioxide levels high – until a shift occurred about 400 million years ago. A new study suggests that the change at this time was accompanied by a fundamental alteration to the carbon-silicon cycle.

Southeast Amazonia is no longer a carbon sink – Nature.com

NEWS AND VIEWS 14 July 2021 Atmospheric measurements show that deforestation and rapid local warming have reduced or eliminated the capacity of the eastern Amazonian forest to absorb carbon dioxide — with worrying implications for future global warming. Scott Denning…
