    This paper examines different concepts of a 'warming commitment' which is often used in various ways to describe or imply that a certain level of warming is irrevocably committed to over time frames such as the next 50 to 100 years, or longer. We review and quantify four different concepts,...

    This paper focused on the impact of global warming on North Carolina. There is a global consensus among scientists that humans are contributing to the increasing emission of greenhouse gases that pose a threat to land, humans and vegetation. The greenhouse gases are in the form of carbon...

    In this note we observe that a problem of linear approach to Granger causality testing between CO and global temperature is that such tests can have low power. The probability to reject the null hypothesis of non-causality when it is false is low. Regarding non-linear Granger causality, based on...
