Global warming and attendant climate change have been controversial for at least a decade. This is largely because of its societal implications since the science is largely straightforward. With the recent publication of the Fourth Assessment Report of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Working Group 1) there has been renewed interest and controversy about how certain the scientific community is of its conclusions: that humans are influencing the climate and that… Expand
Insights on Global Warming
The global temperature increase over the last century and a half (∼ 0.8°C), and the last three decades in particular, is well outside of that which can be attributed to natural climate fluctuations.Expand

Climate change and its implications for water resources management in south Florida
Recent climate change projections suggest that negative impacts on flood control and water supply functions and on existing and future ecosystem restoration projects in south Florida are possible. AnExpand
Assessment of global aridity change
The growing demand for water and the anticipated impacts of climate change necessitate a more reliable assessment of water availability for proper planning and management. Adequate understanding ofExpand
Global climate change and its impacts on water resources planning and management: assessment and challenges
Population explosion and its many associated effects (e.g. urbanization, water pollution, deforestation) have already caused enormous stress on the world’s fresh water resources and, in turn,Expand
A direct scaling analysis for the sea level rise
The estimation of long-term sea level variability is of primary importance for a climate change assessment. Despite the value of the subject, no scientific consensus has yet been reached on theExpand
Water crisis: From conflict to cooperation—an overview
Abstract The quantity of freshwater available per person in the world has been and continues to decrease due to a combination of factors, including population increase, water pollution, inadequateExpand
To what extent does the detection of climate change in Hungary depend on the choice of statistical methods?
The trend analysis of meteorological time series has gained prominence in recent decades, the most common method being the so-called ‘linear analytical trend analysis’. Until the mid-1990s, trendExpand
Seagrasses in an era of ocean warming: a review
TLDR
The combined effects of ocean warming with other environmental stressors are evaluated and the need for multiple-stressor studies to provide a deeper understanding of seagrass resilience is emphasized. Expand

  • TheScientificWorldJournal
  • 2003
TLDR
Of particular interest are advances that seem to explain why satellites do not see as much warming as surface instruments, how the authors are getting a good idea of recent paleoclimates, and why the 20 century temperature record was so complex. Expand

  • TheScientificWorldJournal
  • 2007
TLDR
The big news since CFK03 is the collapse of the climate critics' last real bastion, namely that satellites and radiosondes show no significant warming in the past quarter century, and the new understanding of the phenomenon called "global dimming". Expand
The Policy Drought on Climate Change
TLDR
The draft strategic plan for the combined U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and Climate Change Research Initiative (CCRI) will not surprise the second audience and will tell the first that it has fallen victim to yet another triumph of hope over experience. Expand
How Warm Was the Medieval Warm Period?
Abstract A frequent conclusion based on study of individual records from the so-called Medieval Warm Period (∼1000-1300 A.D.) is that the present warmth of the 20 th century is not unusual andExpand

This Synthesis and Assessment Product is an important revision to the conclusions of earlier reports from the U.S. National Research Council and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.Expand
Was there a ‘medieval warm period’, and if so, where and when?
It has frequently been suggested that the period encompassing the ninth to the fourteenth centuries A.D. experienced a climate warmer than that prevailing around the turn of the twentieth century.Expand
How Warm Was the Medieval Warm Period
TLDR
Despite clear evidence for Medieval warmth greater than present in some individual records, the new hemispheric composite supports the principal conclusion of earlier hemispheres reconstructions and avoids the potential problem of uncertainties introduced by using different numbers of records at different times. Expand
Climate sensitivity constrained by temperature reconstructions over the past seven centuries
TLDR
An independent estimate of climate sensitivity is found that is very similar to those from instrumental data, and if the latter are combined with the result from all proxy reconstructions, then the 5–95 per cent range shrinks, thus substantially reducing the probability of very high climate sensitivity.

Climate in Medieval Time
Many papers have referred to a "Medieval Warm Period." But how well defined is climate in this period, and was it as warm as or warmer than it is today? In their Perspective, [ Bradley et al .][1]Expand
