Jeannie Kever – Researchers Report New Understanding of Global Warming

Researchers know that more, and more dangerous, storms have begun to occur as the climate warms. A team of scientists has reported an underlying explanation, using meteorological satellite data gathered over a 35-year period.

The examination of the movement and interaction of mechanical energies across the atmosphere, published Jan. 24 in the journal Nature Communications, is the first to explore long-term variations of the Lorenz energy cycle – a complex formula used to describe the interaction between potential and kinetic energy ...

Anna Hunt – Palm Oil Contains Carcinogenic Substance, Says EU Food Safety Authority

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) announces that substances found in palm oil raise a potential health concern. They identified one component of palm oil as “geotoxic and carcinogenic.” This information is critical because palm oil is the most heavily utilized vegetable oils, and many people are unaware that palm oil is used in about half of all packaged foods, personal care products and cleaning products.

In 2013, producers used 58 million metric tons of palm oil, up from 50 million ...

Alexandra Jacobo – New study confirms findings of faster global warming, despite what the GOP claims

A new study has confirmed what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration originally found in 2015 – the oceans are warming at nearly twice the rate we originally thought.

After publishing their findings in 2015, the NOAA was immediately attacked by members of the GOP. GOP members of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, headed by Rep. Lamar Smith, opened an investigation into the conclusions. According to Smith, “NOAA has failed to fully explain the ...

Andrea Germanos – Sorry, Santa: North Pole Temps Could Climb 50 Degrees Above Normal

Santa will likely be feeling toasty as he does his final checks on the naughty-or-nice list because temperatures at the North Pole on Thursday are forecast to be as much as 50°F above normal.

Temperatures are expected to climb to near the freezing point of 32°F, computer models show.

JON AUSTIN – Are we about to be told Chemtrails are REAL? Harvard says emissions could SAVE the Earth

Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have identified an aerosol that could be used for “solar geoengineering” to cool the planet, while repairing ozone damage at the same time.

In a new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the scientists said injecting light-reflecting sulphate aerosols into the stratosphere would cool the

planet, but there is a risk of damaging the ozone layer which protects us from harmful UV rays ...

Andrea Germanos – NOAA Issues ‘Jaw-Dropping’ Assessment on ‘Unprecedented’ Arctic Warming

If President-elect Donald Trump’s appointments of a “band of climate conspiracy theorists” weren’t already stoking fears for the ever-warming planet, the latest Arctic Report Cardfrom the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) may well provide the ignition.

The annual assessment, released Wednesday, finds that “persistent warming” is driving “extensive changes” to the region. In fact, the average air temperatures were “unprecendented”—the highest on observational record—and “Arctic temperatures continue to increase at double the rate of the global ...

Andrea Germanos – Sounding ‘Death Knell’ for Reef, Massive Australian Coal Project Heads Towards Completion

Indian energy giant Adani on Monday achieved a “key milestone” in completing its massive and controversial Carmichael coal mine project in Australia—a project, according to a marine conservation group, “that will super charge climate change and sound the death knell for our Reef.”

The achievement comes thanks to Queensland’s Coordinator-General giving “the latest, and final, secondary approval” for a permanent rail line and a temporary construction camp.

With those in place, the Australian Associated Press reports, “Construction on ...

ROBERT HUNZIKER – Huge Antarctica Glacier in Serious Trouble

The global warming crisis seems to get worse and worse, faster and faster. Now, Antarctica is in the spotlight with brand-new shocking research of a spine-chilling development.

The whole of Antarctica, if melted in its entirety, equates to a sea level rise of 200’, but that will not happen during current lifetimes. It’s too big and would require way too much heating for way too long. But, a meltdown of a significant part of Antarctica, like West Antarctica, has the potential, ...

Deirdre Fulton – Climate Change and the Coming ‘Humanitarian Crisis of Epic Proportions’

Climate change—and resultant natural disasters, droughts, and sea level rise—”could lead to a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions,” senior military figures told the Guardian on Thursday.

Specifically, the experts echoed a recent warning from the United Nations that without radical action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, “we will grieve over the avoidable human tragedy,” as the number of global climate refugees climbs.

“We’re going to see refugee problems on an unimaginable scale, potentially above 30 million people,” Maj. Gen. Munir ...

Nika Knight – ‘The Coral Was Cooked’: 2016 Deadliest Year on Record for Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef suffered through the worst coral die-off in recorded history this year, scientists found, with unusually warm ocean water and record-setting bleaching eventskilling a stunning 90 percent of all coral in the worst-hit area.

Those were the conclusions of a study published Monday by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.

“One of the worst-hit areas is around Lizard Island in Far North Queensland, where around 90 percent of the coral has died,” reports the BBC. ...
