- Geophysicists call for action on global warming. // Nature;2/4/1999, Vol. 397 Issue 6718, p373
The article reports on a 1999 statement by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) advocating various measures for the mitigation of global warming caused by anthropogenic climate change, including carbon dioxide emissions reduction and carbon sequestration.
- More Whistleblowers Needed. Zink, John C. // Power Engineering;May99, Vol. 103 Issue 5, p3
Focuses on several issues that have been made against the global warming theory in the United States. Conclusion made by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) on the United Nations Global Climate Treaty; Implication of the conclusion made to the global warming theory.
- Scientists call for action on global warming. Spotts, Peter N. // Christian Science Monitor;1/29/99, Vol. 91 Issue 44, p4
Reports that the American Geophysical Union (AGU) has officially stated in 1999 that public concerns about climate change from global warming are justified and that policy makers in the United States need to develop strategies for reducing carbon dioxide emissions and removing carbon dioxide...
- FEDERAL CLIMATE POLICY. Higgins, Paul A. T. // Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society;Jan2008, Vol. 89 Issue 1, p102
The article discusses the significance of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Policy Program in reducing global climatic changes. The scheme is vital because it will initiate a series of workshops that will identify key design principles for federal climate policy and help in promoting...
- Climate Variability and Change: Past, Present and Future An Overview. M. James Salinger // Climatic Change;May2005, Vol. 70 Issue 1/2, p9
Abstract Prior to the 20th century Northern Hemisphere average surface air temperatures have varied in the order of 0.5 C back to AD 1000. Various climate reconstructions indicate that slow cooling took place until the beginning of the 20th century. Subsequently, global-average surface air...
- La Chine dans les nÃ©gociations climatiques. MARÉCHAL, Jean-Paul // GÃ©oÃ©conomie;mar/avr2013, Issue 64, p107
This article evaluates China's contribution to the global warming phenomenon and the role she can be expected to play in the future. It also analyzes Beijing's attitude in the international negotiations concerning global climate change and, thus, to understand the difficulties to conceive and...
