Global warming

Prevention of global warming depends on understanding the Earth’s energy imbalance

The only practical way to estimate it is through an inventory of the changes in energy.

An innovative hydrocarbon manufacturing route

It uses natural wood-derived charcoal to produce methane (CH4).

Global warming is amplifying our water cycle more rapidly than previously thought

The study signifies broader changes to the global water cycle.

Increased snowfall will counter the sea-level rise

Two ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica respond differently, reflecting their very distinct local climates.

Earth’s energy imbalance: Less than 1% chances for the changes to occur naturally

The major changes in earth’s climate haven’t occurred naturally.

Nights warming faster than days, study

Global warming is affecting daytime and night-time temperatures differently.

Greenland ice sheet has entered a state of sustained mass loss that is irreversible

The Warming Greenland ice sheet passes the point of no return.

New electrical generator harvest energy from droplets

Newly proposed charge trapping‐based electricity generator (CTEG) harvests passive energy from water droplets and other sources of mechanical energy with high efficiency.

Global warming has upended 6,500 years of cooling

During the two millennia before the 20th Century, global mean surface temperature (GMST) cooled at a rate of roughly −0.15 °C per 1000 years.  Not well...

Antarctic peninsula sets a new record temperature

The record appears to be likely associated (in the short term) with what we call a regional "foehn" event over the area.

World’s oceans in 2019 were the warmest in recorded human history

2019 broke the previous records set in prior years for global warming, and the effects are already appearing in the form of more extreme weather, rising sea levels and harm to ocean animals.
