  • Big climate report: Warming is big risk for people

    If you think of climate change as a hazard for some far-off polar bears years from now, you're mistaken. That's the message from top climate scientists gathering in Japan this week to assess the impact of global warming. In fact, they will say, the dangers of a warming Earth are immediate and very human. "The polar bear is us," says Patricia Romero Lankao of the federally financed National Center ...

  • Time delay of global warming

    Thermal response of Earth?s climate to atmospheric GHGs is delayed in time. The magnitude of time delay can significantly exceed several decades, while current thermal imbalance of Earth is likely to amount 0.6 K but it can increase to 5 K by 2100. The paper provides modelling analysis of dynamical behaviour of global warming and presents climatic hysteresis diagrams. Transient simulations reveal ...

  • The Role of Soil Moisture on our Climate, Weather and Global Warming

    Global warming is a topic that has received much attention in the media, especially during the hot days of summer. The process by which carbon dioxide (CO 2) in the atmosphere prevents the escape of thermal energy into outer space is known as the green house effect. The higher the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere the less thermal energy that can escape thus an increasing global ...

  • The potential of the ocean for the management of global warming

    The ocean represents a potential opportunity to store carbon dioxide from fossil fuel away from the atmosphere. Three carbon sequestration strategies are reviewed and the technical, legal and ethical issues that would follow from their widespread adoption are examined. Each of these strategies could play a significant role in mitigating the carbon dioxide increase in the atmosphere. The legal ...

  • Global warming: Acting in advance of government

    While the diplomats stumbled over compliance mechanisms to curb global warming at The Hague, it increasingly appears that the public has crossed the line to believe we have entered a long, hot century. Polar melt down and extreme weather may ultimately be attributed to natural cycles, but don't look to the public and the institutions that respond to the public to do any more waiting for more ...

  • The core of the global warming problem: energy

    From the thermodynamic point of view, the global warming problem is an "energy balance" problem. The heat (energy) accumulation in the earth and its atmosphere is the cause of the global warming. This accumulation is mainly due to the imbalance of (solar) energy reaching and the energy leaving the earth, caused by "greenhouse effect" in which the CO2 and other greenhouse gases play a ...

  • `This Changes Everything` tackles global warming

    "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate" (Simon & Schuster), by Naomi Klein Cutting the vast amounts of man-made pollution that feed global warming is an enormous challenge for societies that gobble up coal, oil and gas. But in "This Changes Everything," Naomi Klein argues that those fuels aren't the root problem - capitalism is. That message is likely to motivate fans of Klein's ...

  • A North Carolina citizen`s guide to global warming

    The state of North Carolina is headed toward imposing major new regulations and taxes on the consumption and production of energy. These restrictions include higher gasoline taxes; restrictions on the use of coal, oil and natural gas in electricity generation and mandatory use of wind and solar power; new land-use regulations that would restrict people’s lifestyle choices and use of their ...

  • Arctic warming blamed for dangerous heat waves

    Few people have heard of Rossby waves and even less understand them, but if you are sweltering in an uncomfortably long heat wave, then they could be to blame. New discoveries about what is going on in the atmosphere are helping to explain why heat waves are lasting longer and causing serious damage to humans and the natural world. These events have doubled in ...

  • The great global warming distraction – take 2

    My first Competitive Strategy column (see EM July 2007, page 22) led with this same title, sans “Take 2.” Back then, the title alone was enough to trigger a few recipients on my article e-mail distribution list to fire off requests that I stop sending them “spam.” With a title like this, what else could this be besides junk e-mail? No need to read further. Those brave ...

  • Even local warming perceptions are colored by ideology

    Worsening wildfires endanger communities. Invasive insects imperil forests. In the American West, many worry about these threats — but fewer fret about climate change, a major force behind both the burning and the bugs. Why? Apparently, because lots of people don’t see the local connection. Polling residents of eastern Oregon, ...

  • Europe’s warming raises tropical disease risk

    Add one more horror to the list of awful threats that climate change poses: it could introduce dengue fever in Europe. Dengue fever is already a hazard for 2.5 billion people in humid tropical regions, and 50-100 million people a year are infected by the mosquito-borne disease. It puts 500,000 of them in hospital each year, and kills around 12,000 − many of them ...

  • How Does Global Warming Affect World Hunger?

    You may have heard the argument from disillusion people that either there is nothing that can be done about global warming, or that it simply doesn’t exist. Global warming is a fact, and it is also a fact that we as humans are the cause. Not a partial or major cause, but the end all be all of reasons the earth’s temperatures are rising. You may have heard from someone that global ...
