Climate change, causes and impacts

New insight into climate change in the Pacific — Last modified December 09, 2011 10:12
New research providing critical information about how climate change is affecting Australia's Pacific island neighbours and East Timor has been released today by the Australian Government's Pacific Climate Change Science Program (PCCSP).
Energy balance points to man-made climate change — Last modified December 09, 2011 10:10
A climate model based on the "global energy balance" has provided new evidence for human-induced climate change, according to its creators. Using this simple model, researchers in Switzerland conclude that it is extremely likely (>95% probability) that at least 74% of the observed warming since 1950 has been caused by human activity.
Extreme weather will strike as climate change takes hold, IPCC warns — Last modified December 01, 2011 10:26
Heavier rainfall, fiercer storms and intensifying droughts are likely to strike the world in the coming decades as climate change takes effect, the world's leading climate scientists said on Friday.
Is climate sensitivity lower than IPCC finding? — Last modified December 01, 2011 10:25
Despite more than 30 years of research, until recently the figure for climate sensitivity had not become any more certain. Initial estimates for the amount of atmospheric warming associated with a doubling of CO2 levels were 3 +/–1.5 K; later studies suggested a small possibility that climate sensitivity could be more than 10 K.
