- Climate Change or Natural Variability? WHITE, ROBERT E. // Australasian Science;Jul/Aug2010, Vol. 31 Issue 6, p38
The article discusses climate change statistics, and looks into the information used to generate those figures. It states that the 4th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has concluded that rising global temperatures are largely due to human activity. In Australia,...
- A correspondence between the model ensemble simulations and observations of temperature changes on the territory of Russia. Sporyshev, P.; Kattsov, V.; Matyugin, V. // Russian Meteorology & Hydrology;Feb2012, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p1
The results are presented of the statistical analysis of correspondence between the model simulations and observations of temperature changes on the territory of Russia. Three model ensembles are considered, differing in the level of taking account of the impact of external forcings on the...
- Climate Change: How Debates over Standards Shape the Biophysical, Social, Political and Economic Climate. Busch, Lawrence // International Journal of Sociology of Agriculture & Food;2011, Vol. 18 Issue 3, p167
In their understandable zeal to ward off the 'nay-sayers', for whom climate change is merely an illusion, rural sociologists have defended the modern constitution that separates the natural from the social. Yet, standards must be developed to identify the phenomena of concern to both climate...
