From Ice Age to Global Warming – The SandPaper

During the early 1970s the public read many articles about the world’s changing climate. Most started like the one published on May 2, 1975 by the Associated Press. “In the last decade, the Arctic ice and snow cap has expanded…

New Study: 25-45% Of Warming Since 1950s Is Due To Urbanization, Not CO2

Why have sea surface temperatures and proxy temperature reconstructions so strongly diverged from the instrumental land record in recent decades? Because “0.36 ± 0.04 °C” of non-climatic warming is from roofs, asphalt, machines, vehicles…artificially enhance the post-1950’s global temperature trend. A new…

Study: SE Greenland Sea Surface Temps 1–2°C Warmer In 1940s Than Today

Southeast Greenland sea surface temperatures were warmer in the 1940s than today, scientists find. A team of Danish scientists led by David Wangner published a paper a year ago about the results of a Greenland sediment core from Skjoldungen Fjord,…

Increasing hurricane intensity around Bermuda linked to rising ocean temperatures

(University of Southampton) New research shows that hurricane maximum wind speeds in the subtropical Atlantic around Bermuda have more than doubled on average over the last 60 years due to rising ocean temperatures in the region.

What Carbon Budget?

Orbital changes are responsible for the Milankovitch cycles that make Earth move in and out of periods of glaciation, or Ice Ages. In line with these cycles, July insolation has slowly decreased over the last 12,000 years. While insolation was…

Reconstruction shows increased global warming trends since 1850s – Newswise

Newswise — Earth is warming rapidly, but there is too little observational data in some regions such as the Arctic or high-altitude areas like the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau to adequately and consistently assess temperature variations across the globe. To better understand…
