North Atlantic Storms: Medieval Warm Period vs. Little Ice Age (11 September 2012)

For this particular portion of the planet, it is clear that relative warmth, as opposed to relative coolness, typically leads to more extreme storms, which is just the opposite of what the world’s climate alarmists continue to contend... Read More

Arctic Amplification and Extreme Weather (11 September 2012)

A paper by Francis and Vavrus (2012) links the Arctic Amplification- AA (the observed enhanced warming of high northern latitudes relative to northern hemisphere) to some of the recent extreme weather in the mid-latitudes of Europe and North America. However, it may still be quite some time before the many factors influencing extreme weather events, including an anthropogenic influence (if any), are understood and properly accounted for...

The Long-Distance Gene Flow of Trees (12 September 2012)

Does it have the potential to enable forests to adequately cope with rapid climate change? In a word, yes -- “many tree species have evolved dispersal syndromes enabling the effective flow of genetic information across distant populations inhabiting contrasting environments,” and these exchanges “may in the case of forest trees favor adaptation to changing climatic conditions, compensating for their long-generation time”...
