- Simple Theoretical Model May Explain Apparent Climate Instability. Rahmstorf, Stefan; Ganopolski, Andrey // Journal of Climate;5/1/99, Vol. 12 Issue 5, p1349
The authors propose a simple theory to explain a climatic drift previously found in a series of coupled general circulation model (GCM) experiments. Their theory places the GCM results on a simple stability diagram for the thermohaline circulation in the Atlantic. It is argued that the drift...
- The El Niï¿½ o -- Southern Oscillation in the Second Hadley Centre Coupled Model and Its Response to Greenhouse Warming. Collins, Matthew // Journal of Climate;4/1/2000, Vol. 13 Issue 7, p1299
This paper describes El Nino - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) interannual variability simulated in the second Hadley Centre coupled model under "control" and "greenhouse warming" scenarios. The model produces a very reasonable simulation of ENSO in the control experimen -- reproducing the...
- Greenhouse scare reheats nuclear debate. Lanouette, W. // Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Apr1990, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p34
Discusses the growing public and political awareness of global warming, the greenhouse effect, and the controversy over awareness has raised possible solutions, including nuclear power. Concerns; Alternative power sources; Critics of nuclear power; Link between global warming and nuclear power.
- Global warming: How much and why? Lanouette, W. // Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Apr1990, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p38
Discusses the background and discovery of global warming and the greenhouse effect, and the conflicting research on just how much the Earth is actually warming and why.
- How to expand nuclear power without proliferation. Williams, R.H.; Feivesona, H.A. // Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Apr1990, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p40
Discusses the growing concern about global greenhouse warming and the resulting reconsideration of the nuclear power option, as well as problems with how to expand nuclear power without weapons proliferations and how to lower costs and reduce accident risks.
- Global warming negotiations. Young, H.P.; Wolfberg, A. // Brookings Review;Spring92, Vol. 10 Issue 2, p46
States that at the center of the global warming negotiations are issues of sharing the costs and responsibilities for reducing risk: the equity and fairness of a cost-sharing plan. What to do about global warming; Emissions taxes; Assessments; Permits and quotas; Who gets how much; A compromise...
