    (ANSA) – Venice could find itself under water within a few decades if current climate trends continue, a top United Nations climatologist said on Friday. Over the next 30 or so years rainfall in the northern Mediterranean will increase by 10-20% as a result of global warming, said Osvaldo Canziani, deputy head of the UN’s […]

  • Reality Check: Sea level rise not accelerating

    A paper published yesterday in the Journal of Geophysical Research – Oceans, confirms other studies of tide gauge records which show that there has been no statistically significant acceleration in sea level rise over the past 100+ years, in contrast to statements of the IPCC and Al Gore. Sea levels have been rising naturally since […]

  • False Alarm: Sea Levels Likely To Rise Much Faster Than Was Predicted

    Global warming is causing the Greenland ice cap to disintegrate far faster than anyone predicted. A study of the region’s massive ice sheet warns that sea levels may – as a consequence – rise more dramatically than expected. Scientists have found that many of the huge glaciers of Greenland are moving at an accelerating rate […]

  • Reality Check: Hurricanes are not getting stronger

    One of the often quoted side-effects of global warming is an in- crease in the frequency and intensity of severe weather events such as hurricanes. This hypothesis is tested here against hurricane data from the National Hurricane Center, a branch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and also the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre.

    The number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes worldwide has nearly doubled over the past 35 years, even though the total number of hurricanes has dropped since the 1990s, according to a study by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The shift occurred as global sea […]

  • Reality Check: Snows of Kilimanjaro defy global warming predictions

    AMHERST – If there is a poster child for global warming, it may be the vanishing snows of Kilimanjaro, which were predicted to disappear as early as 2015 in a widely-publicized report a decade ago.

  • False Alarm: Snows Of Kilimanjaro ‘To Disappear In 20 years’

    The snows of Mount Kilimanjaro will have disappeared within two decades because of global warming, claim scientists, changing forever one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes. More than 85 per cent of the ice that covered the three peaks of Africa’s highest mountain has disappeared in the last 100 years and the rest is melting […]

  • False Alarm: Kilimanjaro snow may soon vanish: thinning rate suggests ice caps may disappear by 2022

    The famed snows of Kilimanjaro may soon appear only in old tourist photos and a short story by Ernest Hemingway if current rates of melting persist, a new study suggests. Warming in recent decades has caused high-altitude glaciers worldwide, especially in tropical areas, to shrink substantially (SN: 10/4/03, p. 215). Recent studies atop Tanzania’s Mount […]
