Study: Glaciers defied hotter temperatures 9000 years ago

From BYU News Ice, when heated, is supposed to melt. That’s why a collection of glaciers in the Southeast Himalayas stymies those who know what they did 9,000 years ago. While most other Central Asian glaciers retreated under hotter summer temperatures, this group of glaciers advanced from one to six kilometers. A new study by…

He emailed me today with this interesting photo. – Anthony ======= Looking west from the South Bay this afternoon it looked like something had punched a gigantic circular hole through the layer of clouds above the Coast…

NCAR spots the "transistor effect" – Small solar activity fluctuations amplify to larger climate influences

Some months back, I mentioned that I felt the sun-earth connection was much like a transistor. This new NCAR study suggests this may be the case where small solar variances are amplified in the earth atmosphere-ocean system. From EurekAlert Small fluctuations in solar activity, large influence on the climate Sun spot frequency has an unexpectedly…
