Clearing Up Confusion Between Correlation And Causation

Clearing Up Confusion Between Correlation And Causation

Here’s an historical tidbit you may not be aware of. Between the years 1860 and 1940, as the number of Methodist ministers living in New England increased, so too did the amount of Cuban rum imported into Boston – and they both increased in an extremely similar way. Thus, Methodist ministers must have bought up lots of rum in that time period!

Climate Change In The U.S. In 8 Compelling Charts

The newly released National Climate Assessment spans 30 chapters with thousands of references on how climate change is impacting the U.S. The report took more than 300 scientists and 4 years to prepare, including addressing more than 4,000 comments from the public. The message of the report is that climate change is already happening across the country.

Antarctica Was Once As Warm As California

Antarctica Was Once As Warm As California

Parts of ancient Antarctica were as toasty as today’s California coast, say scientists who used a new method to measure past temperatures. The study focused on Antarctica during the Eocene epoch, 40 to 50 million years ago, a period with high concentrations of atmospheric CO2 and consequently a greenhouse climate.

Greenland Ice Sheet Is Melting At An Accelerating Rate

Greenland Ice Sheet Is Melting At An Accelerating Rate

Warming in the Arctic has now reached the northernmost sections of the Greenland ice sheet. After a long period of stability (more than 25 years), we have found in a new study of the region that the northeast section of the ice sheet is no longer stable. This means global sea levels may rise even faster than was previously anticipated.

The Canary In The Arctic Ice Melt

The Global Warming Canary In The Arctic Ice Melt

Ice in the Arctic continues to retreat. It’s long been established that Arctic ice is on the retreat but it’s the pace of change that’s surprising scientists: latest studies show the region is at its warmest since 40,000 years.
