  • 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 ...

  • Is New Zealand globally warming?

    NIWA proposes a seven-station temperature series to assess a globally warming trend. The warming trend predicted by NIWA is a result of their arbitrary corrections of measured temperatures to account for change of site. These changes are always increasing the temperatures and they magnify the effect of the heat island build-up around urban areas. The individual analysis of the raw temperature ...

  • Global Warming – A Hot Spot in the News

    Global Warming – A Hot Spot in the News, A Call to Action for Environmental Professionals Over the past several months there have been numerous media events that have drawn attention to the green house gas (GHG) and global warming issue. Issues including causes and effects have been magnified and brought center stage. The time for interest and action by environmental professionals is now ...

  • FORUM: Planning ahead for the global warming

    Global warming is an ongoing issue, which will require continuous dialogue for years to come among scientists, engineers, policy-makers, investors and the public. This opinion paper argues that the better we understand the issue, the wider the public awareness is and the wiser we will be in planning ahead to minimise or prevent the adverse impacts and save the earth for the long ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Landfill gas explosive for global warming

    In response to EPA’s 1991 landfill rules that pushed the industry to larger facilities, landfill operator’s today pile and compact trash on the ground into giant mounds in the shape of a four sided pyramid. As originally contemplated, these mounds of trash were encased in liners to keep the wastes dry so contaminants would not be mobilized to leak into groundwater, along with ...


  • 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 ...

  • Soot, important factor in global warming

    Soot, fossil and biomass burning, as well as from diesel engines, may be responsible for as much as 25 percent of observed global warming over the past century. Soot reducing the ability of snow and ice to reflect sunlight, according to a computer simulation published in a recent paper (Dec. 2003) from Goddard Institute for Space Studies ...

  • 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 ...

  • Cosmic Heat Emission concept to 'stop' global warming

    Global warming, over the last few decades, has become one of the most debated challenges facing society. There have been very few innovative remedies to combat this phenomenon which could lead to ecological disaster. A remedial concept is proposed to 'stop' or at least minimise, global warming and cool Earth. This can be achieved by focusing on the primary heat balance between human activities' ...

  • Influence of global warming on coastal infrastructural instability

    The increasing infrastructure instability is an important issue in relation to the influences of global climate change in urban areas. A serious issue pertaining to this is the dual nature of damage triggered by events combined with climate change and natural hazards. For example, catastrophic damage could result from the combination of global warming with a great earthquake, which is a ...

  • Global Warming Causing Dwindling Food Supplies

    The growth of plants but in excessive amounts they end up bringing destruction. Man-made warming will actually cause a reduction in the amount of food produced compared to if there was no global warming. The last time a similar report was given it said that it was too soon to begin speculating on what effect global warming would have on food production. That was in 2007 but since then more ...

  • 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 ...

  • Global Warming - A Hot Topic in the Northeastern States

    Global warming has been a hot topic for many years; although speculation existed regarding its correlation to human activities. Recent studies demonstrate, however, that human activities likely contribute to global warming, and policymakers from all over the world are proposing programs to slow down the warming trend. The emphasis has been placed on programs that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) ...

  • Food waste – global warming potentials of the options

    Food waste (FW) is a problem and an opportunity. This paper will review the alternativen routes for its management. In the UK, the majority of FW is still landfilled. Traditionally, FW has been fed to pigs but part of the reaction to the 2001 outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the UK was to ban this “swill feeding” and introduce stringent requirements for treating FW that later was the basis ...

  • Sustainability in the city scale to fight global warming

    Cities are a hub of activity, transition and living. From the design of the infrastructure to the design of the buildings, from transportation to industry, there are lots that can be done to make a city better suited to sustainability. Yet, questions like "Is renovating a fossil city the way to go?" or "How much can be done to make a present city more sustainable?" need to be answered. The ...

  • A simple integrated model of global warming and policymaking

    This paper describes a simple integrated model of global warming due to anthropogenic CO2 emissions, which can be used by policy makers for quick screening of various mitigation scenarios to achieve desired carbon reduction targets. First, the constant airborne fraction model was generalised to establish a relationship between CO2 ...
