The Africa Centre for Climate and Earth Systems Science will provide regional decision-makers with reliable climate information, enabling them to balance developmental needs with environmental issues.
While some continue to blame SUV's, and coal powered electric generation plants first for global warming, and now for climate change, is it possible the sun can be to blame? Dr. Charlie Perry thinks so.
Spring in the Rockies begins when the snowpack melts. But with the advent of global climate change, the snow is gone sooner. Research conducted on the region’s wildflowers shows some plants are blooming less because of it.
Is global dimming counteracting the impact that global warming is having/ Has the pollution we spew into the air daily working to keep the temperature from rising. This may be the case and if so the problems we face are even more complicated.
