Hot Summer Mess: New Climate Models Exaggerate Midwest Warming By 6X

For the last 10 years, I have consulted for grain growing interests, providing information about past and potential future trends in growing season weather that might impact crop yields. Their primary interest is the U.S. corn belt, particularly the 12…

We’re No. 1: Global warming has surpassed global cycle – Haaretz

In the last 150 years, since the industrial revolution began, anthropogenic heating has increased the global mean temperature by more than 1 degree Celsius. That increase has wiped out the natural cooling trend that began 6,500 years ago, in which…

Global e-waste surging: Up 21% in 5 years

(Terry Collins Assoc) The UN’s 3rd Global eWaste Monitor reports 53.6 million metric tonnes (Mt) of e-waste was produced last year — substantially more than the weight of all adults in Europe. Global e-waste has risen 21% by weight in just five years, fueled by higher consumption rates of electric and electronic equipment, short life cycles, and few repair options. In 2030 the world is projected to produce about 50% more e-waste per capita compared with 2014.

Global warming will cause ecosystems to produce more methane than first predicted – Science Daily

New research suggests that as the Earth warms natural ecosystems such as freshwaters will release more methane than expected from predictions based on temperature increases alone. The study, published today in Nature Climate Change, attributes this difference to changes in…
