The Transgenerational Effects of Elevated CO2 on Winter Wheat

Paper Reviewed Li, Y., Li, X., Yu, J. and Liu, F. 2017. Effect of the transgenerational exposure to elevated CO2 on the drought response of winter wheat: Stomatal control and water use efficiency. Environmental and Experimental Botany 136: 78-84. Transgenerational effects in living organisms occur from either maternal environmental effects or from evolutionary responses to

Study: Global warming directly linked to ocean surface temperature changes

Understanding multi-decadal global warming rate changes INSTITUTE OF ATMOSPHERIC PHYSICS, CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCES A long-standing mystery is that, despite the persistently increased greenhouse gases emissions throughout the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, the globally-averaged surface temperature has shown distinct multi-decadal fluctuations since 1900, including two weak global warming slowdowns in the mid-twentieth century and

Multi vegetation model evaluation of the Green Sahara climate regime†

By Peter O. Hopcroft, Paul J. Valdes, Anna B. Harper and David J. Beerling Abstract During the Quaternary, the Sahara desert was periodically colonised by vegetation, likely because of orbitally-induced rainfall increases. However, the estimated hydrological change is not reproduced in climate model simulations, undermining confidence in projections of future rainfall. We evaluated the relationship

17 New Scientific Papers Dispute CO2 Greenhouse Effect As Primary Explanation For Climate Change

By Kenneth Richard “[T]he absorption of incident solar-light by the atmosphere as well as its absorption capability of thermal radiation, cannot be influenced by human acts.”  – Allmendinger, 2017 “[G]lobal warming can be explained without recourse to the greenhouse theory.  The varying solar irradiation constitutes the sole input driving the changes in the system’s energy

80 Graphs From 58 New (2017) Papers Invalidate Claims Of Unprecedented Global-Scale Modern Warming

By Kenneth Richards Scientists Increasingly Discarding ‘Hockey Stick’ Temperature Graphs “[W]hen it comes to disentangling natural variability from anthropogenically affected variability the vast majority of the instrumental record may be biased.”  — Büntgen et al., 2017 Last year there were at least 60 peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals demonstrating that  Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented,

A Reduction in US Drought Over the Period 1901-2014

Paper Reviewed McCabe, G.J., Wolock, D.M. and Austin, S.H. 2017. Variability of runoff-based drought conditions in the conterminous United States. International Journal of Climatology 37: 1014-1021. Introducing their work, McCabe et al. (2017) write that “there is concern that climate change may substantially affect the frequency and duration of drought.” And while further noting that
