Arctic Sea Ice Loss Raises Prospect of a Colder Europe

Arctic warming and sea ice loss is reducing ocean-atmosphere heat exchange and the flow of ocean waters that fuel the Gulf Stream and Atlantic Meridional Overtuning Circulation, according to groundbreaking new oceanographic climate research. That raises the prospect of a much colder Europe,

New Research Reveals Climate Warming 55 MYA was Geologically Instantaneous

New research into past changes in climate indicates that global warming can take place much more suddenly than previously thought – over the course of only about 13 years. Temperatures at high latitudes rose as much as 8ºC (14ºF) and oceans warmed from surface to bottom some 55 million years ago during what’s known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM)….

Initial IPCC Predictions on Global Temperature Rise Remarkably Accurate

Researchers investigating the accuracy of UN IPCC scientists’ initial consensus prediction of mean global temperature 1990-2030 found it to be nearly right on the money as of 2010.

New UK Research Center to Focus on Climate, Carbon Markets and Green Technology

A new center for climate change research has emerged in the UK. With support from government, academia and businesses large and small, the UK’s National Physical Laboratory yesterday officially launched the Centre for Carbon Measurement (CCM), a multidisciplinary climate change research institution with a focus on climate modeling, global carbon markets and green technology. CCM “will provide reliable climate data…

Post-Industrial Age Black Carbon Deposits Help Accelerate Loss of Glacial Ice, Marine Ecosystem Changes

Black carbon from man-made burning of fossil fuels and biomass is helping accelerate glacial ice loss at the Mendenhall Glacier and is changing the marine ecosystem in the Gulf of Alaska, a scientific research team finds.
