The article discusses global warming and its effect on earth. Topics discussed include rise in global temperature along with carbon dioxide concentration, role of greenhouse gases in increasing temperature, lack of melting of Arctic glaciers and ice caps because of global warming, and denies correlation between the level of carbon dioxide and temperature.

    This section offers news briefs related to global warming. It was found that in 1996, drivers in Los Angeles, California and New York City alone wasted 600 million gallons of gas sitting in traffic resulting in about 7.5 million tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. A study...

    The article focuses on the sophisticated model built by scientist Sarah Raper in assessing the effects of global warming on glaciers and ice caps. This model suggests that the global rise in sea levels caused by global warming might not be as great as some estimates have found. But it also shows...

    The article offers information on a study conducted by the authors related to the impact of global warming on Glacier National Park (GNP) in Montana. It states that there has been a reduction in the area of glaciers in excess of 36 percent, reportedly since 1850. It mentions that atmospheric...

    The mean sea level has been projected to rise in the 21st century as a result of global warming. Such projections of sea level change depend on estimated future greenhouse emissions and on differing models, but model-average results from a mid-range scenario (A1B) suggests a 0.387-m rise by 2100...

    Mountain glaciers and ice caps are sensitive to changes in regional and global climate. Temporal glacier variations, manifested in change of volume, area and length, provide some of the clearest signals of climate change in nature. Therefore, glaciers are considered key indicators for the...

    Atmospheric CO2 concentration is hypothesized to influence vegetation distribution via tree--grass competition, with higher CO2 concentrations favouring trees. The stable carbon isotope (δ13C) signature of vegetation is influenced by the relative importance of C4 plants (including most...

    Marine records of sediment oxygen isotope compositions show that the Earth's climate has gone through a succession of glacial and interglacial periods during the past million years. But the interpretation of the oxygen isotope records is complicated because both isotope storage in ice sheets and...
