New Study: China's Loess Plateau 7-8°C Warmer Than Today For Much Of The Last 4000 Years

New Study: China’s Loess Plateau 7-8°C Warmer Than Today For Much Of The Last 4000 Years

Scientists refer to the Middle and Late Holocene’s much warmer and wetter regional climate as “favorable,” “optimal” and “the best.” New research from a Loess Plateau study site identifies mean annual temperatures as 9.86°C today, while annual precipitation averages 531 mm. These values are shown to be among the coldest and driest of the last […]

New Study: Warming Temperatures In China The 'Main Factor' Explaining Rising Crop Yields

New Study: Warming Temperatures In China The ‘Main Factor’ Explaining Rising Crop Yields

In what shouldn’t even be news, scientists have discovered warmth and rising CO2 are beneficial to crops, whereas cold and falling CO2 lead to declines in crop production. Scientists have determined the “main factor” directly improving post-1960 crop yields across China is a warming climate (Chen and Sun, 2024). Warming expands the growth area for […]

New Study: A Warmer London Has Reduced The Winter Death Toll By 447 Per Year Since 1976

New Study: A Warmer London Has Reduced The Winter Death Toll By 447 Per Year Since 1976

A warmer world lengthens human life, whereas a cooling world may result in “orders of magnitude” higher excess death rates. A 2022 Lancet study reported 791 heat-related excess deaths and 60,753 cold-related excess deaths in England and Wales each year during the years spanning 2000-2019. That’s an excess death ratio of about 85 to 1 for […]

New Study: CO2 Fertilization Drives The 1980-2018 Global Greening Trend...Greening Leads To Cooling

New Study: CO2 Fertilization Drives The 1980-2018 Global Greening Trend…Greening Leads To Cooling

A “widespread greening trend” has been “significantly cooling the land surface” since the 1980s. Another new study documents a clearly-defined land surface greening trend over the last 40 years. The greening is linked to CO2 fertilization and climate change (warming). Greening, in turn, leads to land surface cooling, partially offsetting recent warming. Image Source: Li […]

Net Benefit: Rising CO2 Improves Essential Crop Yields 3% Per Year - Critical to Feeding The World

Net Benefit: Rising CO2 Improves Essential Crop Yields 3% Per Year – Critical to Feeding The World

The elevated CO2 fertilization effect is driving global greening trends, pushing back deserts, enhancing photosynthesis by 30 to 50%, improving water use efficiency, and boosting crop yields by about 3% every year since 1961.  Recently atmospheric CO2 has been rising at a rate of about 3 ppm per year. While activists claim this is an […]

Cold Kills: Since 2000 There Were 85 Times More UK Excess Deaths Attributable To Cold Than Heat

Cold Kills: Since 2000 There Were 85 Times More UK Excess Deaths Attributable To Cold Than Heat

A new Lancet study ominously reports that from 2000 to 2019 in England and Wales there were an average of 791 heat-related excess deaths and 60,753 cold-related excess deaths each year. That’s an excess death ratio of about 85 to 1 for cold temperatures. Adjusted as deaths per 100,000 person-years, the annual ratio is 1.57 […]

Bad News For Climate Alarmism: Global Warming Of 4.9°C Will Make The Earth Greener, Not Browner

Bad News For Climate Alarmism: Global Warming Of 4.9°C Will Make The Earth Greener, Not Browner

A simulated global warming of nearly 5°C will actually lead to more greening, more vegetation, more gross primary productivity…even if CO2 fertilization is held constant at present levels. A 2021 observational analysis (Cortes et al.) published in Geophysical Research Letters indicated that since 1981 15.8 million km² of the Earth’s land surface has greened and […]

Hundreds More Papers Published In 2021 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

In 2021, several hundred more scientific papers were published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media sources. These scientific papers affirm the position […]

New Study: There Is No Extreme Precipitation, Drought, Flood, Hurricane, Tornado....Climate Crisis

New Study: There Is No Extreme Precipitation, Drought, Flood, Hurricane, Tornado….Climate Crisis

After a thorough examination of extreme weather indices across the globe, scientists (Alimonti et al., 2022) have concluded “none of these response indicators show a clear positive trend of extreme events.” Therefore. “the climate crisis that, according to many sources, we are experiencing today, is not evident yet.” There is an “absence of generalized growth […]

In 2019 Global Deaths Attributable To Cold Weather Were 24% Above 1990 Levels

In 2019 Global Deaths Attributable To Cold Weather Were 24% Above 1990 Levels

A new study (Burkart et al., 2021) reports that for every 356 deaths attributable to warm weather across the globe there were 1,337 attributable to cold weather in 2019. The cold weather death attribution in 2019 was up from 1,021 (thousands) in 1990, a 24% increase. Warm weather deaths also rose – from 205 (thousands) […]

3 New Studies Conclude 21st Century Cold Temps Led To 7-10 Times More Deaths Than Warm Temps

3 New Studies Conclude 21st Century Cold Temps Led To 7-10 Times More Deaths Than Warm Temps

Scientists have calculated the years of life lost (YLL) attributed to exposure to “non-optimum” temperatures.  It turns out that during the 2000s – supposedly the warmest years on record – people were still far more likely to die from exposure to cold temperatures than warm temperatures. The country with the largest human population has recently […]

Scientists Eliminate False Positives In Trend Analysis To Assert NO BROWNING - Only Greening - Since 1981

Scientists Eliminate False Positives In Trend Analysis To Assert NO BROWNING – Only Greening – Since 1981

A new study robustly affirms Earth’s recent vegetation greening trend by eliminating overestimations (false positives). Although this more restrictive analytical approach reduces the observed percentage of the Earth’s land greening from 36% to 15%, it also means that, when using the mean analysis, no browning trend can be detected in the last 40 years. It’s […]
