Global warming and ice sheet melting: Portents of a Younger dryas-like stadial event

Global warming and ice sheet melting: Portents of a Younger dryas-like stadial event by Andrew Glikson Linear climate projections by the IPCC are difficult to reconcile with the paleoclimate evidence of stadial cooling events which closely succeeded warming peaks, including…

IPCC And Skeptics Agree: Climate Change Not Causing Extreme Weather

A new Global Warming Policy Foundation report from retired Oxford physicist Ralph Alexander supports the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s conclusion there is limited scientific evidence linking human-caused climate change to increases in extreme weather. Alexander’s conclusions are also confirmed…

Are hurricanes linked to global warming?

Global warming is adding more moisture to the atmosphere, providing more fuel for big storms like hurricanes. But tropical cyclones are extremely complicated. How much can we really link them to human-induced climate change? It depends on the link. We…

An uncharted 21-23rd centuries’ climate territory

by Andrew Glikson 21–23ʳᵈ centuries’ transient ocean cooling events (stadials), triggered by ice melt flow from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets into the adjacent oceans, herald conditions analogous in part to those of the Younger Dryas stadial (12.9–11.7 kyr)…

How bad is climate change now? – The New York Times

Amid the horror and uncertainty of a global health crisis it can be easy to forget that another worldwide disaster is unfolding, although much more slowly. Global warming is happening, and its effects are being felt around the world. The…
