Confirm Methane’s Importance

Agriculture, land use and forestry responsible for half of people’s greenhouse gases emissions? The image on the right updates an image from an earlier post on the importance of methane’s Gobal Warming Potential (GWP) when assessing the impact of AFOLU…

The extreme rate of global warming: IPCC Oversights of future climate trends

by Andrew Glikson Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports and comprehensive summaries of the peer-reviewed literature raise questions regarding the assumptions inherent in computer modelling of future climate changes, including the supposed linearity of future global temperature trends (Figure…

The peril of high atmospheric methane levels

by Andrew Glikson It is hard to think of a more Orwellian expression than that describing the increase in toxic atmospheric methane gas as “gas-led recovery.” Several of the large mass extinctions of species in the geological past are attributed…

There is no time to lose

Carbon dioxide levels continue at record levels, despite COVID-19 lockdown, the WMO reports. The increase in carbon dioxide from 2018 to 2019 was larger than that observed from 2017 to 2018 and larger than the average annual growth rate over…

Accelerated global warming and stadial cooling events: IPCC oversights regarding future climate trends

 by Andrew Glikson The linear nature of global warming projections by the IPCC (2014) Assessment Report (AR5) (Figure 1) appears to take little account of stadial cooling events, such as have followed peak temperature rises in previous interglacial stages. The…
