Shifting ocean currents appear to be accelerating ice melt of the Pine Island Glacier Ice Shelf in western Antarctica. According to research published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience, scientists from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University have recorded ocean currents driving at and underneath the ice shelf, carving out an expanding cavity from underneath the glacier, creating a growing impact 50 …

As the climate change deniers conclude their 4th International Climate Conference, “Reconsidering the Science and Economics” or rather“Science vs. Alarmism,” where they will present “new scientific research,” it is essential that we are cognizant of their tactics to debate and deny the causes and consequences of climate change. One tactic and perhaps the most insidious one is that of cherry-picking the data to suit their …

Ancient Sediments from Arctic Lake Add to Evidence of Anthropogenic Warming

Human activity is changing climate in ways not seen on Earth for at least the past 200,000 years. That’s the conclusion of new research published earlier this week in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences, adding to the “large pile of evidence” that current climate change has diverged from the natural cyclical variation typical throughout the planet’s history, says the study’s lead …
