New Study Indicates Coral Presence Around Japan Has Plummeted With The Onset Of Global Cooling

New Study Indicates Coral Presence Around Japan Has Plummeted With The Onset Of Global Cooling

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe Western North Pacific has continued cooling over the last millennium, with no reversal in trends after the Little Ice Age. Earlier this year we highlighted a study showing corals thrive in multiple-degrees-warmer-than-today waters and their growth is stunted in cooler environments. Corals in the Western North Pacific near Japan were far more abundant […]

'A Significant And Robust Cooling Trend' In The Southern Ocean From 1982–2020 Defies Climate Models

‘A Significant And Robust Cooling Trend’ In The Southern Ocean From 1982–2020 Defies Climate Models

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study reports there has been a -0.3°C cooling in the Southern Ocean since 1982 per multiple observational data sets. The authors detail the “failure of CMIP5 models in simulating the observed SST cooling in the Southern Ocean.” The Southern Ocean is today about 1-2°C colder than it has been for nearly all […]
