Carbon in Polar permafrost 'behind ancient global warming'

Carbon in Polar permafrost 'behind ancient global warming'

Posted Sat, 07 Apr 2012 11:30:00 GMT by Linden Volsun

Thawed Polar permafrost, which stored massive amounts of carbon, may have caused global warming 55 million years ago, say a team of scientists.

New study on European butterflies looks at the effects of global warming on habitat choice. The research investigates if butterflies are able to respond to climate changes by making use of microclimates in their current habitats.

Devastating start to US tornado season - a warning?

After 100 tornadoes gouged their way across the US last week, 2012 is looking like it may outdo last year's woeful tornado toll - which earned 2011 the moniker 'The Year of the Tornado'. That has many asking whether global warming will play a hand in producing more stormy sequels in the years to come.

The way that human evolution has historically adapted to climate change and the prevailing environment and the way that modern humans persistently modify their environment and ignore the consequences of changes to the global climate, thus risking the future existance of the human race.

A new study looks at how water habitats affect the dispersal ability of animals. The hypothesis tested is if dragonflies and damselflies are able to adapt more quickly to recent climate change where the water is still or lentic.

For three species in the family Notthenioidae, a bleak outlook once again threatens. Climate change is about to deal a double evolutionary deal on a group of Antarctic animals that have adapted well to the icy environment only to lose out to global warming.

WSJ letter downplaying global warming is a call to play with fire

WSJ letter downplaying global warming is a call to play with fire

'No need to panic' when it comes to global warming, exclaimed 16 scientists, in a letter to the Wall Street Journal. Unfortunately that isn't a signal to put away the worry beads. There's barely a climate scientist among the signatories, and their critique relies on the rewarmed leftovers of skeptical claims - long since shown to be wrong-headed. It's time to move beyond the shrieks of the 1% climate change deniers, before the climate itself denies us any chance of holding onto a safe secure future.

American scientists have created the first 'wall-to-wall' carbon storage map that shows tropical vegetation contains 21% more carbon than previously thought and that up to 12% less carbon may have been released into the atmosphere due to deforestation.

Instead of reducing carbon dioxide levels to reduce global warming, we should concentrate on cutting methane and soot, according to a group of international scientists.

Freshwater from Russian rivers that should have ended up in the Eurasian Basin, instead flowed into the Beaufort Sea, off the US/Canada border, because of changes in atmospheric pressure.
