    The increase in 12C in the atmosphere is, in my opinion, weak evidence that the annual increases are driven only by fossil fuel sources. The atmosphere can’t tell ‘anthropogenic’ carbon dioxide from natural carbon dioxide. It seems unlikely that...
  • Claim: Climate and carbon cycle trends of the past 50 million years reconciled
    Predictions of future climate change require a clear and nuanced understanding of Earth's past climate. In a study published today in Science Advances, University of Hawai'i (UH) at Mānoa oceanographers fully reconciled climate and carbon cycle trends...
  • Ocean carbon uptake widely underestimated
    Previous estimates of the movement of carbon (known as "flux") between the atmosphere and oceans have not accounted for temperature differences at the water's surface and a few metres below.
  • Watching CO2 feed the world
    Watching a child grow is seeing carbon dioxide in action. Plants turn CO2 into the food we eat to live and grow on. “You can’t live on air” is a common saying but that is just what we do; we live on air and water.
  • Corrected RCP Scenario Removal Fractions
    Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s blog February 6th, 2020 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Well, as I suspected (and warned everyone) in my blog post yesterday, a portion of my calculations were in error regarding how much CO2 is taken out of the atmosphere...
  • Ice sheets impact core elements of the Earth’s carbon cycle
    University of Bristol The Earth’s carbon cycle is crucial in controlling the greenhouse gas content of our atmosphere, and ultimately our climate. Ice sheets which cover about 10 percent of our Earth’s land surface at present, were thought...
  • Climate warming experiment finds unexpected results
    From January 4, 2019 by Emily Pontecorvo, American Geophysical Union Tropical forests store about a third of Earth’s carbon and about two-thirds of its above-ground biomass. Most climate change models predict that as the world warms, all...
  • Doughnut Economics: the long-sought alternative to endless growth
    Finding a healthy alternative to the prevailing growth model that has strained the planet to bursting is the holy grail of environmental economics. And it looks like maybe we've found it. George Monbiot, the most dynamic environmental journalist I know,...
  • Now it’s the fungi carbon footprint that isn’t in climate models
    From a long line of missing things in climate models and the University of Texas at Austin: Symbiotic fungi inhabiting plant roots have major impact on atmospheric carbon, scientists say AUSTIN, Texas — Microscopic fungi that live in plants’ roots...
