Under extreme heat and drought, trees hardly benefit from an increased CO2 level

The increase in the CO2 concentration of the atmosphere does not compensate the negative effect of greenhouse gas-induced climate change on trees: The more extreme drought and heat become, the less do trees profit from the increased supply with carbon dioxide in terms of carbon metabolism and water use efficiency. This finding was obtained by researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) when studying Aleppo pines. Their study is reported in New Phytologist (DOI: 10.1111/nph.16471).

Australia’s Bureau Of Meteorology Bombs Again

Another summer has come and gone and with it much of the credibility of the Bureau of Meteorology’s climate modeling that has once again been shown to be worthy of fish and chip wrapping and not much else. We are…

Helping the Snow Gods: Cloud Seeding Grows as Weapon Against Global Warming – InsideClimate News

Winter bonfires paying homage to snow gods have long been a tradition in cold weather regions around the world. But in the last 70 years or so, communities in the western United States have gone beyond rituals and added a…

The climate and increased extreme weather affect our energy systems

(University of Gothenburg) Climate change, with more and more storms and heat waves, also has consequences for our energy supply. An international research team has now developed a new method for calculating how extreme weather affects energy systems.

NASA examines Tropical Storm Uesi’s heavy rainfall

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA analyzed Tropical Storm Uesi’s rainfall and found moderate to heavy rainfall around the storm’s center and in a large band of thunderstorms south of the center. That heavy rainfall has triggered warnings for Vanuatu in the Southern Pacific Ocean.

NASA analyzes tropical cyclone Damien’s water vapor concentration

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean on Feb. 7, it gathered water vapor data that provided information about the intensity of Tropical Cyclone Damien.

NASA sees tropical storm Damien form off Australia’s Pilbara coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The low-pressure area that formed off Australia’s Kimberley coast and lingered there for a couple of days has moved west and developed into Tropical Cyclone Damien off the Pilbara coastline.
