New Climate Study Warns of More Frequent El Ninos in the 21st ... ("more often El Niño/La Niña(?)") | Climate Change Science | Scoop.it
A study published today in the journal Nature Climate Change warns that climate change will cause a dramatic increase in El Nino weather events during the 21st century. Formerly happening once every 20 years or so, we ...

Last week, Beijing once again suffered hazardous levels of air pollutionprompting the city's mayor to announce an "all-out effort" to tackle the smog. Residents were advised to stay indoors as levels of fine particulate pollution known as PM2.5 reached the highest in a year. Unhealthy and even hazardous levels of air pollution have become commonplace in Beijing and in 2013 the city endured a total of 189 polluted air days.

The new measures will cut coal burning, limit car emissions and set yearly quotas for local governments and individual polluters. There will also be bigger fines for those found to be in violation of air pollution standards.

According to state media, the new measures replace a guideline which was issued in 2000 and is the "first of its kind" for the city. This will be the first time that Beijing has set targets to curb its total pollution emissions, according to Fang Li, vice head of the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau. The previous guideline targeted only the growth of emissions.

Heavy cyclones caused by global warming are flooding islands, atolls, coastal villages and cities and are leaving a swathe of devastation in their wake.

Climate change is a fundamentally unfair phenomenon. For one thing, the countries that have contributed most to atmospheric build-ups of CO2 won't bear the brunt of the consequences. For another, the people who are least ...

"We wanted to show that responsibility for climate change isn’t just about current national emissions," says Clark. "It’s also about the extraction and export of fossil fuels, the consumption of imported goods made using those fuels, and emissions from previous centuries that are still in the air. Each of those metrics gives a different but valid view on how responsible each nation is for causing the problem."

How Arctic Ice Loss Amplified Superstorm Sandy — Oceanography Journal

How Arctic Ice Loss Amplified Superstorm Sandy — Oceanography Journal | Climate Change Science | Scoop.it
We’ve written extensively about how global warming worsened the impact of Superstorm Sandy. Now a new article, “Superstorm Sandy: A Series of Unfortunate Events?

Via Keah88
George Thomas Farmer's insight:

We've only seen the beginning of Superstorms.  Every time there is a n'orester along the east coast of North America similar to Sandy, we will see storm surges.  The atmosphere is holding about 5% more moisture now than it did throughout much of the 20th Century, sea level is rising, the oceans are warmer, the Jet Stream is slowing and developing hugh meanders.  Severe weather will continue and we are in a "new normal" period never before experienced by mankind.
