A climate of scepticism

March 2013
Energy Management News;Mar2013, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p9
The article discusses several issues related with the global temperature changes based on the data provided by climate research units across the globe as of 2013. Topics discussed include fluctuation of the global temperature since 1850, rise in carbon dioxide levels due to the emissions from fossil fuels, and details of the anthropogenic warming thesis. Also mentioned are the adverse effects of climate changes.

    Minimizing the future impacts of climate change requires reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) load in the atmosphere. Anthropogenic emissions include many types of GHG's as well as particulates such as black carbon and sulfate aerosols, each of which has a different effect on the atmosphere, and a...

    Aircraft emissions differ from other anthropogenic pollution in that they occur mainly in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere where they can form condensation trails (contrails) and affect cirrus cloud cover. In determining the effect of aircraft on climate, it is therefore necessary to...
