Researchers studying the rings of ancient trees in mountainous central Mongolia think they may have gotten at the mystery of how small bands of nomadic Mongol horsemen united to conquer much of the world within a span of decades, 800 years ago. Show More Summary
A pause in the pace of global warming does not invalidate research that links climate change to human activity, national science academies in the United States and the United Kingdom said in a joint report last week. Read full article >>
If significant climate change occurs in the United States it may be necessary to change where certain foods are produced in order to meet consumer demand. Researchers have provided an overview of current farmland use and food production in the Northeastern U.S., identifying potential vulnerabilities of the 12-state region.

Well this is convenient. The University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit has made its global temperature data available for Google Maps. Dubbed "CRUTEM4," the data allows Google Maps users to monitor how surface temperatures have changed over time, both globally and locally. Read more...
Guest commentary by Tim Osborn and Phil Jones The Climatic Research Unit (CRU) land surface air temperature data set, CRUTEM4, can now be explored using Google Earth. Access is via this portal together with instructions for using it (though it is quite intuitive). We have published a short paper in Earth System Science Data to [...]
A new study by Canadian researchers finds the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Russia, and developing nations Brazil and India were responsible for more than 60 percent of global temperature changes between 1906 and 2005. Show More Summary
This post is co-authored by Kelly Rigg and Emily Saari, a writer and researcher for TckTckTck.org. I'm pleased to be co-hosting an awards ceremony this week celebrating global 'momentum for change' at the United Nations climate talks in Warsaw. So far, the news out of Warsaw doesn't seem to warrant a celebration. Show More Summary
As the New York Times reports today: “A panel of experts appointed by the United Nations, unveiling its latest assessment of climate research, reinforced its earlier conclusions that global warming is real, that it is caused primarily if not exclusively by human emissions, and that it is likely to get substantially worse unless efforts to [...]
Severe thunderstorms, often exhibiting destructive rainfall, hail and tornadoes, are one of the primary causes of catastrophic losses in the United States. New climate models suggest a robust increase in these types of storms across the country.
In 2012, 11 weather disasters in the United States crossed the billion-dollar threshold in economic losses. Seven of those events were related to severe thunderstorms. New climate analyses led by Stanford scientists indicate that global...Show More Summary
Climate change may have effects on the spread of West Nile virus by mosquitoes, but they're not likely to be the same throughout the United States, according to a new study from University of Arizona researchers. The study, published...Show More Summary
(WASHINGTON) — A study of a dozen of last year’s wildest weather events finds that in about half the cases, manmade global warming increased the likelihood of their occurrence. Researchers with the United States and British governments concluded Thursday that the other cases reflected the random freakiness of weather. Show More Summary
Cambridge, Mass. – August 28, 2013 – Research by environmental scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) brings bad news to the western United States, where firefighters are currently battling dozens of fires in at least 11 states. read more
Guest commentary from Tim Osborn, Tom Melvin and Keith Briffa, Climatic Research Unit, UEA Records of tree-ring characteristics such as their width (TRW) and density (usually the maximum density of the wood formed towards the end of the growing season – the “maximum latewood density” – MXD) are widely used to infer past variations in [...]

Holland v. Information Commissioner & University of East Anglia, First Tier Tribunal, 29 April 2013 - read judgment In 2009 someone hacked into e-mails belonging to the Climate Research Unit at UEA and leaked them widely. Climate change sceptics whooped with delight because they thought that the e-mails showed attempts to suppress or gerrymander climate [...]
