An artist's depiction of the NASA GRACE satellites and the Earth's gravity field. This material relates to a paper that appeared in the Feb. 12, 2016 issue of Science, published by AAAS. The paper, by J.T. Reager at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, and colleagues was titled, "A decade of sea level rise slowed by climate-driven hydrology."

Study suggests parched Earth soaks up water, slowing sea level rise

Is there anything global warming can’t do? Now it seems that there is so much global warming that it is slowing the rise of sea levels. As glaciers melt due to climate change, the increasingly hot and parched Earth is absorbing some of that water inland, slowing sea level rise, NASA experts said Thursday. Satellite…

Weather systems that typically bring moisture to the southwestern United States are forming less often, resulting in a drier climate across the region. This map depicts the portion of overall changes in precipitation across the United States that can be attributed to these changes in weather system frequency. The gray dots represent areas where the results are statistically significant. Map courtesy of Andreas Prein, NCAR.

@NCAR claims: U.S. Southwest sliding into a drier climate, and it’s all your fault

Weather patterns that bring moisture are becoming less frequent From the NATIONAL CENTER FOR ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH/UNIVERSITY CORPORATION FOR ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH and the “there’s no natural variation component anymore” department comes this blame game claim that seems to ignore history, like the fact that tree rings show decade and century long droughts in the past: BOULDER…

The Profiteers of climate doom

Ten killer questions that expose how wrong and ideologically driven they are by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, Willie Soon and David R. Legates A century or so from now, based on current trends, today’s concentration of carbon dioxide in the air will have doubled. How much warming will that cause? The official prediction, 1.5-4.5 degrees…
