Major cosmic impact 12,800 years ago

When UC Santa Barbara geology professor emeritus James Kennett and colleagues set out years ago to examine signs of a major cosmic impact that occurred toward the end of the Pleistocene epoch, little did they know just how far-reaching the projected climatic effect would be. “It’s much more extreme than I ever thought when I

What Rising CO2 Means for Global Food Security

Executive Summary Plant production has been boosted, the need for water and fertilizer has been brought down, and field experiments show that these effects are likely to increase in coming decades. Global food security is one of the most pressing problems facing the planet’s growing population. Continuing advances in agricultural technology and expertise will certainly

Earth system models underestimate carbon fixation by plants in the high latitudes

By Alexander J. Winkler, Ranga B. Myneni, Georgii A. Alexandrov & Victor Brovkin Abstract Most Earth system models agree that land will continue to store carbon due to the physiological effects of rising CO2 concentration and climatic changes favoring plant growth in temperature-limited regions. But they largely disagree on the amount of carbon uptake. The

Rising CO2 has unforeseen strong impact on Arctic plant productivity

Dr. Annette Kirk Kommunikation Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie In a new study, a team of researchers around Alexander Winkler and Prof Victor Brovkin from the department “The Land in the Earth system” at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) show that most Earth system models (ESM) underestimate the response of Arctic plant productivity to rising

World Leading Ocean Expert Calls Sea Level Rise Claims By Climate Scientists “Anti-Scientific Nonsense”

World leading sea level expert Prof. em. Nils Axel Mörner presents some stark examples that show how the IPCC and climate activists are wildly exaggerating their claims of rapid sea level rise. By EIKE Mörner studied the Kattegat Sea between Denmark and Sweden. In this region sea level has not increased as announced by climate
