Warming homogenizes apparent temperature sensitivity of ecosystem respiration – Science Advances

INTRODUCTION Terrestrial ecosystem respiration (Re), the sum of autotrophic respiration from primary producers and heterotrophic respiration from consumers and detritivores, represents a fundamental biospheric function and plays a major role in the global carbon cycle and growth rate of atmospheric…

Ocean eddies strongly affect global mean sea-level projections – Science Advances

INTRODUCTION Satellite-observed sea-level measurements indicate an ongoing increase in the global mean sea level since the satellite era (1–3). Global mean sea-level rise (GMSLR) threatens low-lying coastal regions, and these regions will benefit strongly from sea-level projections to adapt their…

Why the House Republicans’ plan to fight climate change matters – MSNBC

As a rule, congressional Republicans aren’t in the habit of unveiling policy proposals on any issue. It’s the hallmark of a post-policy party: it’s up to others to do the unglamorous work of crafting substantive legislation. With this in mind,…

48 Of 79 ‘Catastrophic Climate’ Predictions Have Failed; Other 31 Haven’t Expired Yet

A new peer-reviewed paper published in the International Journal of Global Warmingidentifies 79 “apocalyptic” predictions formulated since 1970 by “researchers and activists” who “predict cataclysmic events” resulting from “catastrophic climate change.” Already 48 of these “truly apocalyptic forecasts” have failed. The…

Biden’s new 2030 climate change target: Will it be fair to other countries? – Vox.com

On April 22, President Biden will convene global leaders for a virtual climate summit in a bid to reassert US leadership and motivate countries to cut emissions much more aggressively. Of course, the US is only just recommitting to climate…

Abrupt ice age climate changes behaved like cascading dominoes

(University of Copenhagen – Faculty of Science) Throughout the last ice age, the climate changed repeatedly and rapidly during so-called Dansgaard-Oeschger events, where Greenland temperatures rose between 5 and 16 degrees Celsius in decades. When certain parts of the climate system changed, other parts of the climate system followed like a series of dominos toppling in succession. Today, sea-ice extent is being rapidly reduced, and it is uncertain whether this part of the climate system can trigger sudden future climate change.

Biodiversity ‘hot spots’ devastated in warming world – FRANCE 24

Issued on: 09/04/2021 – 00:02 Advertising Read more Paris (AFP) Unless nations dramatically improve on carbon cutting pledges made under the 2015 Paris climate treaty, the planet’s richest concentrations of animal and plant life will be irreversibly ravaged by global…

Particle Mystery Deepens As ‘Strong’ New Evidence Hints at ‘5th’ Force in Nature

Like the four cardinal elements of yore, or the four cardinal directions, there are also four forces of nature—the ones which cause particles to move in different ways, like gravity and electromagnetism. Through discoveries made while working with a fundamental particle called the muon, physicists working in Chicago have recently made the case for a […]
