The sunlight-reflecting haze that cools much of the planet seems to have thinned over the past decade or so, remote-sensing specialists report on page 1543 of this issue of Science. If real, the thinning might explain the unexpectedly strong global warming of late, the accelerating loss of glacial ice, and much of rising sea levels. (Read more.) 
Global warming: a review of this mostly settled issue
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
Changes of regional climate variability in central Europe during the past 250 years
The paper uses the data potential of very long and homogenized instrumental climate time series in the south central Europe for analyzing one feature which is very dominant in the climate change
Spatial patterns and recent trends in cloud fraction and cloud‐related diffuse radiation in Amazonia
declined at a rate of 0.3% yr � 1 , and the wet season decline was 0.1% yr � 1 . In the west of the region a 1% increase in CRDRP is indicated. Changes in forest composition and productivity may be
For the efficient management of water, meteorological and hydrological services need to know how much water evaporates from natural lakes and reservoirs during particularly hot summer months.
Solar dimming and its impact on estimating solar radiation from diurnal temperature range in China, 1961–2007
Time series of solar radiation revealed that China experienced an obvious dimming during 1961–1989 and a brightening thereafter. To evaluate the impacts of changing radiation on diurnal temperature
