Republicans Google 'Climate Change' During Extreme Weather

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:56:33 -0700
On Google, Republicans search for information about weather, climate change and global warming during extremely hot or cold weather, while Democrats search for these terms when temperatures are lower or higher than average, according to a new study, detailed July 16 in the journal Climatic Change. The findings suggest that "different types of people experience weather differently or have ...

Mismanagement, Not Global Warming, Caused Chicago Sewage Overflows

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 23:17:46 -0700
Global warming is not the reason why Chicago’s 1800s-era sewer system occasionally floods people’s basements, despite Washington Post propaganda to the contrary.

Global Warming 'Hiatus' Reflects Natural Fluctuation

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:16:04 -0700
McGill University Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy . In a paper published this month in Geophysical Research Letters , Lovejoy concludes that a natural cooling ...

Global warming 'pause' reflects natural fluctuation

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 21:41:46 -0700
The deceleration in rising temperatures during this 15-year period is sometimes referred to as a "pause" or "hiatus" in global warming, and has raised questions about why the rate of surface warming on Earth has been markedly slower than in previous decades.

Republicans Google 'Climate Change' In Extreme Weather

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:56:45 -0700
During extreme or unusual weather, Americans' political leanings seem to influence their Internet searches about the climate.

Unhappy Feet: Global Warming Threatens Emperor Penguins

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 09:02:45 -0700
The biggest threat to emperor penguins may not be leopard seals or even killer whales, but a much larger predator: global warming. Climate change, which is quickly melting the sea ice this species depends on for survival, could cause dramatic drops in the number of emperor penguins across Antarctica by the end of the century, a new study finds. Specifically, more than two-thirds of Antarctica's ...

Global warming threatens Antarctica’s emperor penguins

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 13:59:50 -0700
A study finds that most of the bird’s colonies may decline by more than 50 percent by the end of the century.

Flashcard: Climate Change

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 10:25:51 -0700
Climate change, also called global warming, refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. An overwhelming scientific consensus maintains that climate change is due primarily to the human use of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. The gases trap heat within the atmosphere, which can have a range of effects on ecosystems, including ...

Slowdown in global warming merely a ‘pause,’ expert says

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:20:37 -0700
McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy, already a global warming denier’s worst enemy, has done it again with his latest statistical analysis showing that a recent slowdown in global warming is merely a “pause” — and not any kind of proof that man-made global warming has waned.

Climate change ravaging Antarctic fur seals

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:12:26 -0700
A food shortage likely caused by climate change is shrinking a South Antarctic fur seal colony and changing the profile of its surviving members, researchers said Wednesday. South Georgia island's Antarctic fur seal pups have a lower average birth weight, and there are fewer breeding adults -- who hold out longer to reproduce than in the past, according to study results published in the journal ...
