Greenhouse effect of clouds instrumental in origin of tropical storms

With the tropical storm season in the Atlantic Ocean underway and already well into the Greek alphabet for naming, better storm track prediction has allowed timely evacuations and preparations. However, the formation and intensification of these storms remains challenging to predict, according to an international team of researchers who are studying the origin of tropical cyclones.

Climate Crisis? IGC Projects Record Harvests For Corn, Wheat And Soybeans

The largest corn harvest in history is among the reasons the International Grains Council (IGC) is forecasting record total grains production in 2020-21. According to the IGC’s Grain Market Review, released Aug. 27, total global grains production will reach 2.230…

Are climate scientists being too cautious when linking extreme weather to climate change?

Climate science has focused on avoiding false alarms when linking extreme events to climate change. But it could learn from how weather forecasters warn the public of hazardous events to include a second key metric: the probability of detection.
