Study: Interacting tipping elements increase risk of climate domino effects under global warming

The study, “Interacting tipping elements increase risk of climate domino effects under global warming” by Nico Wunderling, Jonathan F. Donges, Jürgen Kurths, and Ricarda Winkelmann from the Potsdam Institute finds potential severe consequences from continued climate change. The Guardian has a study breakdown, which can be accessed here. Analysis shows significant risk of cascading events even at 2C…

Study: Non-Monotonic Response of the Climate System to Abrupt CO2 Forcing

The 2021 published study Non-Monotonic Response of the Climate System to Abrupt CO2 Forcing (10.1029/2020GL090861) involves research from the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Center for Climate System Research, and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. The study key points are: We examine the response of the climate system…

New study finds CO2 today enough to raise sea level by 20 metres

An international team of scientists, from Texas A&M University, the University of Southampton and the Swiss University ETH Zürich, led by the University of St Andrews, published their findings in the study, Atmospheric CO2 over the Past 66 Million Years from Marine Archives. The international team pulled together data collected over the last 15 years using high-tech laboratory techniques.  The combined data spans the…

Any reduction in emissions means shorter open-water periods

A new study be the University of Manitoba, finds that for every degree of global warming, the open water period in the Arctic will increase by roughly one month. The study, Arctic open-water periods are projected to lengthen dramatically by 2100 – published in the Nature journal Communications Earth & Environment, notes: The shrinking of Arctic-wide…

Will President Biden bring forward the carbon fee-and-dividend?

Climate scientist James Hansen in his latest blog, Fighting the Battles, Winning the War – once again reminds us of the carbon fee-and-dividend. And that President Joe Biden has the authority to bring it forward. Meanwhile, Canada already has a carbon fee-and-dividend, with British Columbia operating a system very similar to Fee and Dividend, as…

Wie der Tagesspiegel hilft die Wissenschaft zum Klimawandel zu diskreditieren

Wer die News der letzten paar Wochen verfolgt hat wird feststellen daß zwar viel über den sehr seltenen Polar Wirbel Zerfall geschrieben wird, aber bei den Hintrgründen dazu, dazu scheinen Journalisten keinen Bock zu haben, es zu recherchiren. Seit etwa 2010 wird vermehrt in der Community von Wissenschaftlern die den Klimawandel erforschen über extreme Winter…

Scientists Detect Signs of Abrupt Climate Shift in Arctic

Ice cores obtained years ago document an ominous rise of temperatures, abrupt change manifesting just within a few decades. First scientists thought this must be an error, but slowly they realize what it could mean for us today. Research into the polar ocean, found, it is getting hotter at a rate faster than even the worst…
