Climate researchers are seeing the beginnings of what could be the most powerful El Niño event since 1997/98. Are we heading for a worrying Super El Nino?

We have only just moved into May and despite being seven months away from next summer in the southern hemisphere, climate researchers are seeing the beginnings of what could be the most powerful El Niño event since 1997/98.

 

A new analysis shows why greater uncertainty about climate change increases the likelihood that the real-world effects will be at the more severe end of the scale. Uncertainty isn’t cause for climate complacency – quite the opposite

As the effort to find Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 moves inexorably towards the recovery stage, the challenge of finding the plane’s flight recorder on the ocean floor will become a game of blind man’s bluff. Under the deep blue ocean: the search for MH370’s black box

As the effort to find Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 moves inexorably towards the recovery stage, the challenge of finding the plane’s flight recorder on the ocean floor will become a game of blind man’s bluff spread over thousands of kilometres.

Australians and New Zealanders can now use their computers to help scientists discover if climate change has contributed to record heatwaves, droughts and flooding across both countries. How your computer could reveal what’s driving record rain and heat in Australia and NZ

Australians and New Zealanders can now use their computers to help scientists discover if climate change has contributed to record heatwaves, droughts and flooding across both countries.

Australia’s climate: time to act on rising heatwaves and fires

The State of the Climate 2014 report, released in March 2014 by the CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology, confirms that Australia is heating up.

New research by Tess Parker shows cyclones off the north west of Australia have a profound impact on heatwaves in Victoria and Tasmania What’s cranking up the heat across south-eastern Australia?

Has there really been a hiatus in global average temps. Is global warming in a hiatus?

The warming trend in air temperatures has slowed over the last 15 years. There is a great deal of interest in this “hiatus” in the sense of whether it points to some fundamental error in climate science.

Storms by stock xchng Part 3: In science, the only certainty is uncertainty

Scientists have built a theory of climate change from multiple lines of consistent, high-quality evidence. But simple statements implicating the human causes of climate change contain many complexities.
