Posted: 12/05/2008 - They will tell you when the skies might rain or snow and when to make weekend plans if steady sunshine spans the five-day forecast. They also will tell you that human-caused global warming is hogwash. They’re your local TV meteorologists.
Posted: 12/05/2008 - Arctic winds, snow and frosts have come in such a blast this winter that the bookmakers report record numbers of bets on a white Christmas so early in December. This cold snap is reminiscent of the savage freezes of long ago.
Posted: 12/05/2008 - Ten years ago Al Gore said that we may only have ten years to act, yet ten years later global temperatures are cooling.
Posted: 12/05/2008 - The sun’s magnetic field may have a significant impact on weather and climatic parameters in Australia and other countries in the northern and southern hemispheres. According to a study in Geographical Research, the droughts are related to the solar magnetic phases and not the greenhouse effect. If solar cycles continue to show relational values to climate patterns, there is the potential for more accurate forecasting through to 2010 and possibly beyond.”
Posted: 12/05/2008 - Last year, during an interview with Vaclav Smil, I asked the distinguished professor of geography at the University of Manitoba why there was such a paucity of informed discussion about energy issues. He replied “There has never been such a depth of scientific illiteracy and basic innumeracy as we see today.” If the U.S. and the rest of the world really want to replace coal with some other form of energy, then it is essential to understand the size of the challenge. Between 2000 and 2007, global coal use increased by 4.8 percent.

Posted: 12/05/2008 - Russian oil companies could soon begin searching for oil in deep Gulf of Mexico waters off Cuba.
Posted: 12/05/2008 - The finding in this data is that there is no clear evidence of a delay in the start of the later summer/early fall freeze up or the start of the late winter/early spring melt despite the well below average areal sea ice coverage. Also, the reason that the added atmospheric concentrations of well-mixed greenhouse gases are not changing the dates as expected needs to be provided.
Posted: 12/05/2008 - Are they really suggesting that the warming of the land areas of the Earth may not have been caused directly by the increased concentration of greenhouse gases? The answer is ... yes!
Posted: 12/05/2008 - I and a number of my colleagues believe that this large increase in Atlantic major hurricanes is primarily due to the multi-decadal increase in the Atlantic Ocean Thermohaline Circulation (THC) that is driven by Atlantic salinity variations. These Atlantic multi-decadal changes have also been termed the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO). These increases are not a result of global surface temperatures or CO2 increases.
Updated: 12/04/2008 - The job of a broadcast meteorologist is a busy one. Just ask Mike Buresh, chief meteorologist for CBS47 and FOX30 TV in Jacksonville, Florida.
Updated: 12/04/2008 - Our entire world extends only 10 feet in any direction and ends in an impenetrable gray wall of torrential tropical rain. It is Monday, September 1, 2008, at 3:15 p.m. CDT. We are driving near Jennings, Louisiana, through a thunderstorm feeder band close to the decaying eyewall of Hurricane Gustav, heading back to KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, Louisiana. We have with us video footage of exploding electric lines, trees bending in hurricane force winds, and roads that look more like rivers.
Posted: 12/04/2008 - Although most of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic will be precipitation free Friday, lake effect will pile up the snow totals in northwest Pennsylvania, southwest New York and northern New York east of Lake Ontario.
