Next Solar Cycle Could Bring Cooler Temperatures

A former BBC science correspondent says that there remains a real possibility that unusual solar behavior could influence the Earth’s climate, bringing cooler temperatures for the next decade. Despite rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the reduction in solar activity along with…

Northern peatlands will lose some of their CO2 sink capacity under a warmer climate

(University of Eastern Finland) A Nordic study sheds new light on the role of northern peatlands in regulating the regional climate. According to the researchers, peatlands will remain carbon sinks until the end of this century, but their sink capacity will be substantially reduced after 2050, if the climate warms significantly.

Bandwagon Of Weather Doom Washed Away By Tidal Wave Of Data

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), for each degree of global warming, the amount of water vapor in the air should increase by about 6-7%. As with so many things the IPCC talks about, this small change…

Experiments lead to slip law for better forecasts of glacier speed, sea-level rise

(Iowa State University) Backed by experimental data from a laboratory machine that simulates the huge forces involved in glacier flow, glaciologists have written an equation that accounts for the motion of ice that rests on the soft, deformable ground underneath unusually fast-moving parts of ice sheets. Models using the equation — a ‘slip law’ — could better predict how quickly glaciers are sliding, how much ice they’re sending to oceans and how that would affect sea-level rise.

The Arctic may influence Eurasian extreme weather events in just two to three weeks

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Scientists argue that the effects of rising temperatures and melting ice in the Arctic may actually be felt across the rest of the planet in a matter of weeks, but more robust, observational-based analysis is needed to fully understand how quickly Arctic events impact the rest of Earth.

Climate Crisis RIP: People Will Be In No Mood For Needless Panic

COVID-19 has not only been a nightmare for the public worldwide but especially for “climate crisis” alarmists who have seen their agenda disappear from the media radar. And it’s going to stay off the radar for quite some time. People…

Amid Outbreak, Chicken-Little Obama Frets About Trump’s ‘Climate Denial’

On Tuesday, former President Barack Obama ripped into President Donald Trump’s decision to loosen environmental standards, comparing “climate denial” to the original skepticism officials expressed at reports of the coronavirus pandemic. Yes, in the midst of a pandemic that is…

New model helps explain seasonal variations in urban heat islands

(Duke University) Rising temperatures and shifting rainfall patterns linked to climate change may alter the seasonality of urban heat islands in coming decades. A new model simplifies predictions of ‘urban heat islands’ based on temperature, sunlight and rainfall.
