Trees to offset the carbon footprint?
How effective are new trees in offsetting the carbon footprint? A new study suggests that the location of the new trees is an important factor when considering such carbon offset projects. Planting and preserving forests in the tropics is more likely to slow down global warming. View News Article (2007-04-10)

How a 2°C rise means even higher temperatures where we live
Regions around the Arctic may have passed a 2°C temperature rise as far back as 2000 and, if emissions rates don't change, areas around the Mediterranean, central Brazil and the contiguous United States could see 2°C of warming by 2030. View News Article (2016-01-21)

Has solar activity influence on the Earth's global warming?
A recent study demonstrates the existence of significant resonance cycles and high correlations between solar activity and the Earth's averaged surface temperature during centuries. This provides a new clue to reveal the phenomenon of global warming in recent years.  View News Article (2014-06-05)

Natural climate swings contribute more to increased monsoon rainfall than global warming
Natural swings in the climate have significantly intensified Northern Hemisphere monsoon rainfall, showing that these swings must be taken into account for climate predictions in the coming decades.  View News Article (2013-03-21)

Global warming 'not slowing down,' say researchers
Researchers have added further clarity to the global climate trend, proving that global warming is showing no signs of slowing down and that further increases are to be expected in the next few decades.  View News Article (2011-12-06)

Warming reaches maximum 10 years after carbon dioxide emission
The climate warming caused by a single carbon emission takes only about 10 years to reach its maximum effect. This is important because it refutes the common misconception that today's emissions won't be felt for decades and that they are a problem for future generations.  View News Article (2014-12-03)

A change in the wind
Climate model simulations for the 21st century indicate a robust increase in wind shear in the tropical Atlantic due to global warming, which may inhibit hurricane development and intensification. View News Article (2007-04-18)

Europeans Will Adjust To Global Warming But Will Still Die Of Cold
(Heat related mortality in warm and cold regions of Europe: observational study) BMJ Volume 321, pp 670 - 673 (Editorial : Saving lives in extreme weather in summer : pp 650 ? 651) Heat related deaths start at higher temperatures in hot regions of Europe compared to cold regions, suggesting that people have adjusted successfully to differences in summer temperatures across Europe, and can be...

Global warming 'pause' reflects natural fluctuation
In a paper published this month in Geophysical Research Letters, Lovejoy concludes that a natural cooling fluctuation during this period largely masked the warming effects of a continued increase in man-made emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.  View News Article (2014-07-22)

Global warming could lead to a greener Greenland (embargoed until 18.00 BST)
Research published in Nature suggests that enough greenhouse gases could be in the atmosphere as early as 2050 to melt the massive ice-sheet that covers Greenland. As a result, sea levels could rise by around seven metres over the next 1,000 years. Along with colleagues in Belgium and Germany, Dr Jonathan Gregory, of the Centre for Global Atmospheric Modelling (CGAM) at the University of Reading... View News Article (2004-04-07)
