  • 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 ...

  • 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 – 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 ...

  • Filling the vacuum: state and regional climate change initiatives

    Public and political discourse on global warming has shifted rapidly from whether human activity is causing global warming to the question of how best to address it. The authors find the lack of action by the federal government has created a vacuum into which regional, state, and local governments have rushed with a variety of regulatory ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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' ...

  • Systematic monthly climate changes in the northern and southern hemispheres

    A new comprehensive analysis of the monthly surface temperatures published data in the northern and southern hemispheres is presented. Linear regressions between surface temperatures and CO2 concentrations at consecutive latitude geographical regions indicated that there is a systematic opposite global warming effect between mirror regions on the northern and southern ...

  • 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 ...

  • Costs, benefits and sustainability in decision-making, with special reference to global warming

    Environmental decision-making, like economic decision-making, often involves trade-offs. Decision-makers need techniques with which to compare the costs and benefits involved. For some environmental problems, such as global warming, there are insuperable difficulties to making operational what might seem the obvious technique, cost-benefit analysis. Broadening the decision-making framework, four ...

  • The domino effect in climate change

    This paper provides a concise summary of the natural and the anthropogenic greenhouse effect and the major causes for climate change. This summary may be particularly accessible for readers who are not familiar with natural sciences. Building on these explanations, we develop a simplifying atmospheric model that demonstrates a widely unknown aspect of global warming: the greenhouse effect ...

  • Global energy accumulation and net heat emission

    The increase in the global air temperature is an inadequate measure of global warming, which should rather be considered in terms of energy. The ongoing global warming means that heat has been accumulating since 1880 in the air, ground and water. Before explaining this warming by external heat sources, the net heat emissions on Earth must be considered. Such emissions from, e.g., the global use ...

  • Predicting impacts of global warming on population dynamics and distribution of arthropods in Japan

    The mean surface temperature rose by 1.0°C over the last 40 years in Japan. Changes in the pest status, distribution range, winter mortality, and the synchronization in phenology were examined. The increase in the number of annual generations of each taxon was predicted based on the lower developmental threshold and the thermal constant. Increasing damage due to rice- and fruit-infesting bugs, ...

  • What comes to mind when you think of `global warming?`

    In the past decade, the images and feelings Americans associate with the term "global warming" have shifted dramatically. Researchers at the Yale Project on Climate Communication recently published an article in the journal Risk Analysis that identifies and analyzes these shifts in the connotative meaning of "global warming." The most striking result is the increase in the proportion of Americans ...

  • India’s contribution in carbon emissions – a case study on Delhi region

    Global warming due to increase in green house gases especially carbon dioxide has changed the earth’s climate forever. Therefore, this paper is an attempt to find how much does Delhi contribute to global warming? And what role should India play in solving this problem? The study reveals that the major cause of increase in green house gases in Delhi is because of the increased number of vehicles ...

  • Endogenous learning in climate-energy-economic models – an inventory of key uncertainties

    This paper gives an overview of uncertainties related to endogenous learning as observed in integrated assessment models (IAMs) of global warming, both for bottom-up and top-down climate-energy-economic models. A classification is formulated by which uncertainties can be evaluated, and through which one can distinguish between modelling, methodological and parameter uncertainties. We emphasise ...

  • Global Warming - a Hot Topic

    World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has consolidated data from a number of renown institutes, and has concluded that 2018 is yet another year with notably higher global average temperature on the surface of the earth than what was observed in the pre-industrial era. ...

  • Statistical inquiry into the causes of global temperature changes

    Observed changes in average global temperatures over time have led to two general avenues of discussion in the environmental literature. The scientific community has concentrated on the statistical detection of global warming and the determination of biological and industrial factors causing average world temperatures to rise. A second avenue of thought considers the issue of economic abatement ...

  • 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 ...
