Revising evidence of hurricane strikes on Abaco Island (The Bahamas) over the last 700 years

Tyler S. Winkler, Peter J. van Hengstum, Jeffrey P. Donnelly, Elizabeth J. Wallace, Richard M. Sullivan, Dana MacDonald & Nancy A. Albury Scientific Reports volume 10, Article number: 16556 (2020) Abstract The northern Bahamas have experienced more frequent intense-hurricane impacts than almost anywhere else in the Atlantic since 1850 CE. In 2019, category 5 (Saffir-Simpson scale) Hurricane Dorian demonstrated the destructive potential of …

A spatially explicit surface urban heat island database for the United States: Characterization, uncertainties, and possible applications

Science Direct T.Chakrabortyac, A.Hsubcd, D.Manyac, G.Sheriffe Received 3 April 2020, Revised 30 July 2020, Accepted 30 July 2020, Available online 13 August 2020. Abstract The urban heat island (UHI) effect is strongly modulated by urban-scale changes to the aerodynamic, thermal, and radiative properties of the Earth’s land surfaces. Interest in this phenomenon, both from the climatological and public health perspectives, …

Persistent warm Mediterranean surface waters during the Roman period

Nature Abstract Reconstruction of last millennia Sea Surface Temperature (SST) evolution is challenging due to the difficulty retrieving good resolution marine records and to the several uncertainties in the available proxy tools. In this regard, the Roman Period (1 CE to 500 CE) was particularly relevant in the socio-cultural development of the Mediterranean region while its climatic characteristics remain uncertain. …

The Scientific Case for Vacating the EPA’s Carbon Dioxide Endangerment Finding

The Scientific Case for Vacating the EPA’s Carbon Dioxide Endangerment Finding

Patrick J. Michaels • April 21, 2020 View Full Document as PDF Executive Summary The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2009 “Endangerment Finding” from carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases grants the agency a legal mandate that can have profound and far-reaching effects. The Finding is based largely on a Technical Support Document that relies heavily upon other mandated …

Doubling Down on Failure

How a 50 Percent by 2030 Renewable Energy StandardWould Cost Minnesota $80.2 Billion ISAAC M. ORR, MITCH ROLLING, AND JOHN PHELAN Minnesota currently has a law mandating that 25 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, by 2025. Some lawmakers have proposed doubling the renewable energy mandate (REM), requiring that 50 percent of …

The Climate Noose

Business, Net Zero and the IPCC’s Anticapitalism Rupert Darwall The Global Warming Policy Foundation Report 40 Two-minute read •Why 1.5°C? The stated aim of the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is to avoid dangerous anthropogenic interference in the climate system.

The warming effects of CO2 by the IPCC cannot be fitted into the GH effect

By Antero Ollila March 9, 2020 I have shown that the greenhouse (GH) effect definition of the IPCC and also used by climate researchers violates the physical laws. The GH effect depends on the downward radiation from the atmosphere encompassing three energy sources. Latent heating from the physical state change from gas to liquid and partly even to solid-state, sensible …
