Human Mortality in Castile-Leon, Spain (29 Sep 2010)

Cold is a much greater killer of people than heat is almost everywhere in the world. The people of the Castile-Leon region of Spain are much more likely to die from a cardiovascular disease in the extreme cold of winter than in the extreme heat of summer. And the same holds true with respect to dying from respiratory and digestive system diseases. Read More

The Glaciation of Arctic Canada’s Baffin Island (29 Sep 2010)

The Little Ice Age was found to have been the coldest period of the current interglacial, which suggests (once again) that 20th-century global warming could not have taken the earth into “uncharted” thermal territory, but only back to something similar to what prevailed prior to the Little Ice Age, like the Medieval Warm Period.

The Peatlands of China’s Changbai Mountains (29 Sep 2010)

Have they been giving up their carbon in the face of what climate alarmists claim is unprecedented global warming? Read More

Soil Solarization (29 Sep 2010)

What is it? ... and how is it affected by atmospheric CO2 enrichment? Read More

Effects of Elevated CO2 and Ozone on the Nitrogen Acquisition and Growth of Peanuts (29 Sep 2010)

Contrary to the blatantly false contention of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, CO2 is not a pollutant; it is a pollution fighter that reduces the negative effects of true pollutants, such as ozone, and replaces them with positive effects that are of great worth to man and nature alike, as evidenced by the findings of this review.

Feeding the Future World (29 Sep 2010)

What are the needs? ... and what are our chances of meeting them? Read More

Global Warming and Malaria (30 Sep 2010)

“Non-climatic factors, primarily direct disease control and the indirect effects of a century of urbanization and economic development, although spatially and temporally variable, have exerted a substantially greater influence on the geographic extent and intensity of malaria worldwide during the twentieth century than have climatic factors.” Read More

Holocene Glaciers of Western Canada (30 Sep 2010)

What does their history tell us about the nature of 20th century global warming? Read More

The Changing Climate of Canada: Implications for Agriculture (30 Sep 2010)

The “deadly” global warming that brought an end to the debilitating cold of the Little Ice Age and ushered the planet into the Current Warm Period is proving to be a real boon to Canada, as well as to the rest of the world, which may have to depend upon North America’s northernmost country to supply a significant portion of the food it will need to support its growing numbers in the years and decades to come.

Methane Uptake by Soils of a Temperate Deciduous Forest (30 Sep 2010)

Global warming will likely result in increasing CH4 uptake rates in this region because of the trend to drier summers and warmer winters. And this response represents a negative feedback that should help to temper predicted increases in CO2-induced global warming. Read More

CO2, Global Warming and Sugarcane: Prospects for the Future (30 Sep 2010)

How does the important C4 plant respond to a CO2-enriched and warmer atmosphere? Read More

How Does Global Warming Impact the El NiƱo-Southern Oscillation? (30 Sep 2010)

The more we learn, the less we seem to know. Read More
