Modelling ancient antarctic ice sheets helps us see future of global warming

(University of Massachusetts Amherst) In order to get a sense of what our future may hold, scientists have been looking to the deep past. Now, new research from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, which combines climate, ice sheet and vegetation model simulations with a suite of different climatic and geologic scenarios, opens the clearest window yet into the deep history of the Antarctic ice sheet and what our planetary future might hold.

Global Warming Vs. Climate Change: Your Questions Answered – Greener Ideal

One of the biggest issues facing the world right now is climate change. Despite what you may have heard in the political arena, climate change is not a debated topic — at least not among scientists. The vast majority (97%+)…

Media Claim Crop Reductions As Harvests Set New Records

The media this week are breathlessly promoting a paper by researchers at Curtin University in Australia that says climate change is harming food production. In reality, crop data show food production is rising dramatically in recent decades under ideal crop…

Executives Call for Deep Emission Cuts to Combat Climate Change – The New York Times

WASHINGTON — More than 300 businesses, including Google, McDonalds and Walmart, are pushing the Biden administration to nearly double the United States’ target for cuts to planet-warming emissions ahead of an April 22 global summit on climate change. In a…

Opinion: The realities of climate change – Los Angeles Times

Climate change is an extremely controversial topic in today’s modern society. It’s defined by NASA as “a long-term change in the average weather patterns that have come to define Earth’s local, regional and global climates” and the changes in earth’s…

NASA Officials Sound Fake French Fry Alarm – As Potato Crops Set Records

NASA’s climate propaganda site, Climate.gov, features an article claiming climate change threatens potato production and, therefore, French fries. The article, titled “Climate & French fries,” claims global warming is making temperatures too warm for ideal potato production, creating more drought…

Global Warming And Rising CO2 Have Been A Boon For Plant Life

Some climate alarmists have been claiming that global warming has been decreasing agricultural productivity. (For instance, see here.) But real data proves otherwise. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is plant food. Increasing CO2 and warming have enhanced plant growth and makes plants more…

How grasslands respond to climate change

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) The rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and concurrent climate change has led to yield reductions of grass-rich grassland vegetation in the past century. This observation was made by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) who, working jointly with colleagues from Rothamsted (U.K.), conducted a study on the world’s oldest permanent ecological experiment there.
