  • Rainfall patterns cloud climate changes

    The 20th century was neither much drier nor wetter for half the globe than many of its predecessors, European scientists say. On the contrary, they say several centuries in the last 1,200 years experienced much more variable rain and drought than the 1900s. Their findings, which are published with several caveats and which have not so far been replicated, differ markedly from the conclusions ...

  • Abrupt climate change can occur below 2°C warming

    Climate change could arrive with startling speed. New research has identified at least 37 “tipping points” that would serve as evidence that climate change has happened – and happened abruptly in one particular region. And 18 of them could happen even before the world warms by an average of 2°C, the proposed “safe limit” for global ...

  • Ocean temperatures and sea level increases 50% higher than previously estimated

    New research suggests that ocean temperature and associated sea level increases between 1961 and 2003 were 50 percent larger than estimated in the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. The results are reported in the June 19 edition of the journal Nature. An international team of researchers, including Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory climate scientist Peter Gleckler, ...

  • Europe’s hot summers break 2,000-year record

    The unusually hot summers in Europe over the last three decades are further evidence that human activities are largely responsible for recent global warming, according to new research. This new data adds to the fears expressed by scientists only a week ago that parts of the Mediterranean and Arctic regions will heat up by 3.4˚C and 6˚C respectively above pre-industrial levels. The new ...

  • Climate change raises deadly health risks

    More than half a million people worldwide are likely to die annually by 2050 because of the impact on agriculture of changing climate, according to an Oxford University study on the future of food. The authors say the effects are likely to be felt most acutely in south and east Asia, but that the US will also be severely affected. They identify reduced production and consumption of fruit and ...

  • Toyota and Ford unveil plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles at Detroit Auto Show

    Toyota and Ford unveiled plug-in hybrid-electric versions of their vehicles at last week's Detroit Auto Show. This decision to give in and plug in is monumental. Consumer pressure from organizations like PlugInAmerica and Plug-In Partners most likely played a significant role. The growing number of entrepreneurial companies that offer plug-in conversion services could have also influenced ...

  • More warming will bring a more polluted future

    The future is slightly obscured. The outlook is less than clear. For once, such phrases are not metaphorical. A world of global warming could mean a growing haze of solid and liquid aerosols – tiny specks of salt, fine dust, sulphates, black carbon and other particles in the atmosphere, according to new research. Robert Allen, an earth scientist at the University of California, Riverside ...

  • Cut carbon now to avoid climate tipping points

    An international team of scientists has tried a new approach to addressing the complex argument about the costs of climate change – and, once again, the prediction is that the costs of inaction will be so much greater than paying the bills now. The researchers − from the UK, Switzerland and the US − ...

  • Climate scientists say Europe faces a big chill

    Two separate and very different studies have confirmed a climate paradox − that global warming and a slowdown in the Atlantic Ocean currents could trigger climate change and bring a prolonged chill in Europe. One researcher argues that not only could it happen, it must have happened every 1,500 years or so during the last Ice Age, and that the transitions were ...

  • São Paulo to invest US$63m on climate research

    The State of São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) has announced a new US$63 million investment initiative for research on global climate change and its impact on Brazil. Over the next ten years, FAPESP will offer US$6—7 million every year to climate researchers. FAPESP will also look to bring in other institutions to add more funding to the programme. The two first proposal calls are for ...

  • How vulnerable to flooding is New York City?

    A report just released in the most recent issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society offers hope that a new high-resolution storm surge modeling system developed by scientists at Stony Brook University will better be able to predict flood levels and when flooding will occur in the New York metropolitan area, information crucial to emergency managers when planning for impending ...

  • Higher social costs bolster case for emissions curbs

    Concerted action on climate change is looking like a bargain after research findings that the notional cost to society of global warming damage caused by carbon dioxide emissions has been seriously underestimated. The US Environmental Protection Agency calculates the “social cost of carbon” at $37 per tonne – a figure used to guide current energy regulations and possible future ...

  • Climate change may boost Middle East rainfall

    The prospect of climate change sparking food and water shortages in the Middle East is less likely than previously thought, with new research by an Australian climate scientist suggesting that rainfall will be significantly higher in key parts of the region. Recent projections from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) raised fears that storm activity in the eastern Mediterranean ...

  • History warns of drought’s destructive force

    The Mayan civilisation in what is now Mexico perished more than a thousand years ago not just because of drought, but perhaps because of too much reliance on water in reservoirs. The story of the rise and decline of ancient civilisations has resonance for today. And researchers at Vienna University of ...

  • A hydrological network for open source codes under development

    Considerable interest is being shown in hydrological models with open source codes, which users are free to continue developing. The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute’s (SMHI) hydrological model HYPE is being developed with open source codes so that researchers all over the world will be able to develop models in cooperation. A network has also been built around the source ...

  • Iron’s mixed blessing for health of oceans

    Technology’s answer to climate change in a world in which humans go on releasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has just had another setback. The idea of fertilising the planet’s oceans with iron filings to stimulate green growth and turn the oceans into a carbon sink isn’t so simple as hoped. Two studies – both involving experiments at sea – have ...
