- IS THE ENHANCEMENT OF GLOBAL WARMING IMPORTANT? Symons, Martyn C.R.; Barrett, Jack // Energy & Environment;2001, Vol. 12 Issue 4, p1
Examines the causes and possible solutions to global warming. Impact of human activities on the increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration; Use of alternative methods to tap energy; Reduction in the emission of carbon dioxide.
- Global warming on trial. Katz, Diane // Fraser Forum;Mar2010, p6
The article discusses the failure of the Copenhagen Conference held in Denmark to disclose and expose deception and fraud in the research of anthropogenic climate change and global warming. The conference urged developed countries to submit voluntary emissions reduction targets to the United...
- Phaeton's Reins: Changing course will require major policy change, and the United States must lead the way. Layzer, Judy; Moomaw, William // Boston Review;Jan/Feb2007, Vol. 32 Issue 1, p20
This essay discusses ways the United States can be a leader in global climate policy change, and the reasons why it has been so slow in applying them. Policies that address global warming are not politically compelling. An international consensus based on scientific evidence on the human causes...
- PAYING FOR RAIN. Chavkin, Sasha // Mother Jones;Nov/Dec2009, Vol. 34 Issue 6, p50
The author reports that Bolivian president Evo Morales has said developed nations should have to compensate developing nations for the effects of their atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions in what is called "climate reparations." The article details catastrophic flooding and rainstorms in...
- Is broken ocean pump a global warning? Pearce, Fred // New Scientist;3/19/94, Vol. 141 Issue 1917, p4
Reports on the breakdown of the convection processes in the Greenland Sea. Role of convection processes in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; Reduction in ice formation at the Odden feature; Scientists' views on the significance of the breakdown; Global warming as a possible factor.
- Global warming brings early spring. Pearce, Fred // New Scientist;7/13/96, Vol. 151 Issue 2038, p7
Reports on the earlier onset of the northern spring than it did in the past due to global warming. Sudden shift in the seasonal cycle of the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide; Importance of terrestrial vegetation to the carbon cycle; Increase in the strength of the seasonal carbon...
- Interhemispheric coupling and warm Antarctic interglacials. Holden, P. B.; Edwards, N. R.; Wolff, E. W.; Lang, N. J.; Singarayer, J. S.; Valdes, P. J.; Stocker, T. F. // Climate of the Past Discussions;2009, Vol. 5 Issue 6, p2555
Ice core evidence indicates that even though atmospheric CO2 concentrations did not exceed âˆ¼300 ppm at any point during the last 800 000 years, East Antarctica was at least âˆ¼3-4 Â°C warmer than pre-industrial (CO2 âˆ¼280 ppm) in each of the last four interglacials. During the...
- Sceptic's study finds support for anthropogenic warming. // Geographical (Geographical Magazine Ltd.);
The article discusses the increase in global warming in the world due to increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
- Climate change: Warming, but not as much. // Nature;1/26/2012, Vol. 481 Issue 7382, p413
The article discusses on the analysis of the increase in atmospheric temperature associated with global warming, which indicate a short-term increase of 1.3-1.8 degree Celsius for a doubling of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
