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

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

Posted Mon, 30 Jan 2012 17:34:31 GMT by Martin Leggett

'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.

Tropical deforestation carbon release 'overestimated'

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.

Research by the University of Florida has stated that normal glaciations are completely changing and behaving differently thanks to high levels of carbon dioxide sitting within the Earth's atmosphere.

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.

The almost linear increase in global mean temperature since 1979 has been mapped out by Grant Foster of Tempo Analytica in the US and Stefan Rahmstorf from the Potsdam institute for Climate Impact Research, thanks to the satellite microwave-sensor imagery, available since that date.

The US's NOAA duties include regular reports and the latest prepares uis for another of those winters that we just don't understand. For example, the strangely low [ozone] in March this year led to high ultra-violet levels in both Arctic and sub Arctic regions. Most scientists believed this due to the very cold stratosphere, resulting in slow ozone formation.

Record drought in Mexico has left 2.5m people without water and, in some cases, food. Agricultural output is down nearly 30% which, according to a Princeton study, may result in a 6% increase in emigration. But the US doesn't seem to be in a position to cope with this influx.
