An international team of scientists estimate that up to half of the recent global warming in Greenland is caused by natural climate variations. The research, published in the journal Nature, sheds new light on the rapid melting of Greenland’s glaciers. Crucially it indicates that global warming caused by carbon dioxide emissions may not be the only factor responsible. Dr Ailie ... Read More »

Exeter University finds global warming doubles risk of ‘Extreme El Niños’

El Niño

The risk of extreme versions of the El Niño weather phenomenon will double over the coming decades due to global warming, new research by scientists at the University of Exeter has shown. The frequency of ‘extreme El Niños’ could see a two-fold increase as the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean warms faster than the surrounding regions. Similar events were experienced in ...

University of NSW study predicts 5C global warming before 2100

Global temperatures are set to increase by up to five degrees centigrade by 2100, according to an Australian-led study. It suggests climate is more sensitive to greenhouse gas emissions than was previously thought. By 2200, the world could be more than 8C warmer than it was in pre-industrial times if carbon dioxide emissions are not reduced, say the researchers. The ...
