American robins migrating 12 days earlier than they did 25 years ago

American robins can be found year-round almost anywhere in North America, from Canada’s lower provinces and southward, but many of the birds in northern areas head south for the winter. Recently, researchers have found that these robins have been migrating…

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…

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 disasters increase risks of armed conflicts: New evidence

(Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK)) The risk for violent clashes increases after weather extremes such as droughts or floods hit people in vulnerable countries, an international team of scientists finds. Vulnerable countries are characterized by a large population, political exclusion of particular ethnic groups, and low development. The study combines global statistical analysis, observation data and regional case study assessments to yield new evidence for policy-makers.

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…

Uncertain climate future could disrupt energy systems

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) An international team of scientists has published a new study proposing an optimization methodology for designing climate-resilient energy systems and to help ensure that communities will be able to meet future energy needs given weather and climate variability. Their findings were recently published in Nature Energy.

Extreme, high temperatures may double or triple heart-related deaths

In Kuwait, a country known for hot weather, death certificates reveal that on days when the temperatures reached extremes of an average daily temperature of 109 degrees Fahrenheit, the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease dramatically increased. With unprecedentedly high temperatures, people living in inherently hot regions of the world may be at particularly high risk of heat-related cardiovascular death.

Study: The Ozone Layer Is Repairing Itself, Affecting Wind Flows

While most people’s focus remains directed at the coronavirus pandemic, some good news has emerged: a hole in our ozone layer is now in recovery. The hole—located above Antarctica—is continuing to recover and bringing changes in atmospheric circulation as a…

Using fiber optics to advance safe and renewable energy

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Fiber optic cables, it turns out, can be incredibly useful scientific sensors. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have studied them for use in carbon sequestration, groundwater mapping, earthquake detection, and monitoring of Arctic permafrost thaw. Now they have been awarded new grants to develop fiber optics for two novel uses: monitoring offshore wind operations and underground natural gas storage.
