Excerpt:

“Ongoing research is required if we are to fully comprehend the potential extent and severity of such secondary effects.”

This study was published in the US Geophysical Research Letters journal and was funded by CSIRO’s Sustainable Agriculture Flagship, Water for a Healthy Country Flagship, the Australian Research Council and Land & Water Australia.

ICECAP NOTE: See how this corroborates this analysis about the 2012 drought and crops."

Witchcraft: ‘Scary weather is coming, it’s all our fault, be afraid!’ — This is the modus operandi of the ancient witchdoctor: ‘I can stop the storms — send us your tithe’

There they go again. Last night the ABC again used taxpayer dollars to post up a slick advertisement for their favourite religion. Because Catalyst won’t read skeptical blogs, interview skeptics, or ask difficult questions, they give a false impression to any poor viewers who haven’t figured out that the presenters (in this case, Anja Taylor) are more activist than investigator. “The gorilla in the kitchen remained invisible. Where was cause and effect?” The gorilla in the kitchen remained invisible. Where was cause and effect? The Earth has had extremes of every kind of weather for 4.5 billion years. What makes the current ones any different? Any cause of warming could melt ice, raise sea-levels, shift jet streams, change cloud cover and shift evaporation rates. How do we know this warming is due to coal fired power stations? We only “know” because some climate modelers say so — but they rely on models that assume relative humidity stays constant when it doesn’t, and which are proven “unskilled” at precipitation, cloud cover and upper tropospheric temperature profiles.  The models ignore lunar effects, solar magnetic effects and millions of observations so they can blame your SUV and air-conditioner for causing droughts, storms, [...]Rating: 9.0/10 (5 votes cast)

Anthony Watts is a fake.

Marc Morano is a fake.

Really? How is that everyone is a fake or crook, except YOURSELF?

What do you call yourself? And. we know what you are!

And only fools take this as a good news.

So, you think "A green change in desert" and "Deserts ‘greening’ from rising CO2" is not a good thing for mankind?你想想........
“绿色的变革”在沙漠 和 “沙漠绿化”,来自CO2浓度升高
人类,不是一件好事吗?

A green change in desert




A former inhabited site is covered by green plants in Luoshan National Nature Reserve in Northwest China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region on Aug 22, 2012. As a result of ecological migration of former inhabitants, the ecological condition in the reserve has experienced a 13-year-long recovery, transferring a desert into a green land. During this period, the number of species in the reserve has grown from 295 in 2000 to 366 today, with the protected area expanding from 7,200 hectares to 33,710 hectares. [Photo/Xinhua]

Does Caring for “the Least of These” Demand Fighting Global Warming?
David R. Legates, Ph.D.


"Average global temperatures have not risen over at least the past fifteen years. Dr. John Christy, a fellow evangelical Christian and a highly respected climatologist, testified to Congress that in the United States, we have seen virtually no change in daily maximum temperature, while most of the warming is confined to increases in daily minimum temperatures. (Nighttime temperatures are driven by turbulence [or lack of it] near the surface, not CO2 warming. By contrast, daytime maximum temperature is a much better measure of warming from greenhouse gases. The lack of a signal in daily maximum temperature suggests that the rate of warming due to CO2 is relatively small.) That and the lack of warming for at least a decade and a half implies the effect of CO2 warming is much smaller than climate models suggest."

Report: CO2 not responsible for global warming

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) — not carbon emissions — are the real culprit behind global warming, claims a  new study out of the University of Waterloo.

“Conventional thinking says that the emission of human-made non-CFC gases such as carbon dioxide has mainly contributed to global warming. But we have observed data going back to the Industrial Revolution that convincingly shows that conventional understanding is wrong,” said Qing-Bin Lu, a science professor at the University of Waterloo and author of the study.

“In fact, the data shows that CFCs conspiring with cosmic rays caused both the polar ozone hole and global warming,” Lu said.


Lu’s findings were published in the International Journal of Modern Physics B and analyzed data from 1850 to the present.

Lu’s study runs counter to the long-standing argument that carbon dioxide emissions were the driving force behind global warming. Recently scientists warned that carbon concentrations were nearing the 400 parts per million level. Scientists say that carbon dioxide levels must be lowered to 350 ppm to avoid the severe impacts of global warming.

“The 400-ppm threshold is a sobering milestone and should serve as a wake-up call for all of us to support clean-energy technology and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases before it’s too late for our children and grandchildren,” said Tim Lueker, an oceanographer and carbon cycle researcher who is a member of the Scripps CO2 Group.

Lu notes that data from 1850 to 1970 show carbon emissions increasing due to the Industrial Revolution. However, global temperatures stayed constant.

“The conventional warming model of CO2, suggests the temperatures should have risen by 0.6°C over the same period, similar to the period of 1970-2002,” reads the study’s press release.
