Dying from Heat and Cold in Australia: With daily minimum temperatures rising so much faster than daily maximum temperatures all around the world, global warming – if it ever resumes after its nearly two-decade hiatus – should lead to less temperature-related mortality in most parts of the planet, as has historically been observed in Australia.

Modeling Daily Intense Rainfall Events over Africa: “State-of-the-art climate models still cannot realistically simulate daily intense rainfall events with high accuracy.”

Modeling Caribbean Precipitation: How Well Is It Being Done?: Both CMIP3 and CMIP5 models still have some perplexing problems that need to be resolved.

Dying From Heat in New York City: Petkova et al.’s discovery that the excess mortality originally experienced at high temperatures was substantially reduced over the course of the century they studied is indicative, in their words, of “population adaptation to heat in recent decades.” (more…)

EPA Madness Spreads

EPA advances anti-energy agenda, with little regard for Americans’ health or welfare

by Paul Driessen

Seven score and nine years ago, President Lincoln resolved to take increased devotion to ensuring that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the Earth.

Yet, today, our lives are determined not so much by We the People, as by a distant central government, particularly increasingly powerful, unelected and unaccountable Executive Branch agencies. Foremost among them, by almost any standard, is the Environmental Protection Agency.

Under Administrator Lisa Jackson, the Gettysburg vision has mutated into government of, by and for the EPA. Indeed, Ms. Jackson seeks not merely to regulate, but to legislate; not merely to protect our health and environment against every conceivable risk, but to control every facet of our economy, livelihoods and lives. Under her direction, EPA increasingly flaunts the naked power of regulators gone wild. (more…)

What was done
Colleen Iversen of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee (USA) reviewed the pertinent scientific literature “to examine the potential mechanisms for, and consequences of, deeper rooting distributions under elevated CO2 as they relate to ecosystem carbon and nitrogen cycling,” focusing primarily on forests.

Why Are Climate Alarmists Getting More Alarmed About CO2?

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Source:  CO2 Science

As the push for binding global targets on anthropogenic CO2 emissions rose to a deafening crescendo — just prior to, during and following the United Nations Fifteenth Conference of Parties (COP15) held in Copenhagen, Denmark, 7-18 December 2009 — two groups of climate alarmists published a pair of papers claiming that even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had underestimated the magnitude of future global warming that they claim will likely result from the continued unbridled burning of fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil.

In these two papers, which appeared in Nature Geoscience, Pagani et al. (2010, but published online 20 Dec 2009) and Lunt et al. (2010, but published online 6 Dec 2009) calculated what they call “earth-system climate sensitivity,” based on things that they and others had inferred about planetary conditions during the Pliocene period of some three to five million years ago.
