New research reflects data from previously unmeasured Arctic, Antarctic, and central Africa areas, refuting recent thinking on a purported recent slow-down in warming and increasing estimates of rising temperatures globally.
Many media reports link California’s historic summer of 2013 ‘Rim Fire’ to a changing climate. But differences among the American West’s forest regions make broad generalizations risky.
Recently released sea-level rise findings from IPCC project greater increases than earlier forecast, but continuing uncertainties persist, and drawing direct comparisons with past estimates is difficult.
Newly published research in ’PNAS’ identifies what authors call a ‘vertical human fingerprint’ in satellite-based estimates of atmospheric temperature changes, adding still more to confidence levels about human influences in warming.
In evaluating arguments on climate change, great care is needed in how numbers are used…and in what context. With this week’s scheduled release of the first volume of IPCC’s next assessment report, this feature reviews recent work on numeracy.
With upcoming release of IPCC Fifth Assessment Reports beginning late in September, there will be a sharp focus on specific issues like projected sea-level rise but also on broader issues like climate sensitivity and the decade-and-a-half-long slow-down in the rate [...]
In this 50th anniversary year of JFK’s death, it’s worth pondering which of the many causes and themes advanced by Kennedy best speak to our time. John Wihbey reviews a new history by Jeffrey Sachs and looks at the scientific [...]
