The Greening of Earth’s Arid and Semi-Arid Lands: Rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations initiate the process, while a host of other phenomena combine to enhance it.
Fluctuations in Air Temperature and Certain Cloud Parameters: How have they changed over the past century and recent decades?
Climate-Driven Adaptations of Balsam Poplar Trees: How did the trees change as they expanded their ranges in response to the warming that followed the last glaciation?
Plant Species’ Range Shifts in Mountainous Areas: They’re not all uphill.
Ocean pH Tolerance in Two Important Antarctic Invertebrates: Is it really as low and as tenuous as climate alarmists make it out to be?

Ocean Acidification Database
The latest addition of peer-reviewed data archived to our database of marine organism responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment is Bay Scallop [Argopecten irradians]. To access the entire database, click here.
Plant Growth Database
Our latest results of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature are: Raddish (Schubert and Jahren, 2011) and Rice (Zenget al., 2011).
Medieval Warm Period Project
Was there a Medieval Warm Period? YES, according to data published by 977 individual scientists from 565 research institutions in 43 different countries … and counting! This issue’s Medieval Warm Period Record comes from the French Alps. To access the entire Medieval Warm Period Project’s database, click here.
World Temperatures Database
Back by popular demand and upgraded to allow patrons more choices to plot and view the data, we reintroduce the World Temperatures section of our website. Here, users may plot temperatures for the entire globe or regions of the globe. A newly added feature allows patrons the ability to plot up to six independent datasets on the same graph. Try it today. World Temperatures Database.
Carbon Dioxide and Earth’s Future: Pursuing the Prudent Path: Ten of the more ominous model-based predictions of what will occur in response to continued business-as-usual anthropogenic CO2 emissions are compared against real-world observations. (co2science.org)
