NASA Finds Oceans Slowed Global Temperature Rise

A new NASA study of ocean temperature measurements shows that in recent years, extra heat from greenhouse gases has been trapped in the waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans. Researchers say this shifting pattern of ocean heat accounts for the slowdown in the global surface temperature trend observed during the past decade.

US researchers say new evidence casts doubt on the idea that global warming has "slowed" in recent years.
A US government laboratory says the much talked about "pause" is an illusion caused by inaccurate data.
Updated observations show temperatures did not plateau, say National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) scientists.

Ice cores show 200-year climate lag

Scientists have found a 200-year lag time between past climate events at the poles. The most detailed Antarctic ice core provides the first clear comparison with Greenland records, revealing a link between northern and southern hemisphere climate change.
Scientists found that abrupt and large temperature changes first occurred in Greenland, with the effect delayed about 200 years in the Antarctic.

Warmer seas 'will change British diet'

Warming seas will push traditional fish favourites off the British menu, a study suggests. Fish such as haddock, plaice and lemon sole will decline as the North Sea warms by a predicted 1.8 degrees over 50 years, say scientists.
But other species such as John Dory and red mullet will shift their range into UK waters, according to modelling work.

UN World Meteorological Organisation ranks 2014 as hottest year on record

Last year was most likely the warmest year on record, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO ) announced today. Global surface temperature in 2014 was 0.57 degrees Celsius above the 1961-1990 average, nominally beating 2010 and 2005 to the top spot.

Hot days may double in Australia by 2090

The annual number of very hot days in inland Australia could more than double in 75 years, according to a forecast of the effects of climate change by Australian science agency CSIRO.
Towns such as Alice Springs could average more than 190 days per year where the temperature crosses 35C, the CSIRO's Kevin Hennessy told the BBC.

Climate change 'will make lightning strike more'

Global warming will significantly increase the frequency of lightning strikes, according to US research.
The research, published in Science, was carried out with the help of data from a US network of lightning detectors.

Jan-Sept temperatures break records

The global average temperature over land and ocean surfaces for September 2014 was the highest for the month since record keeping began according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). January-September tied with 1998 as the warmest such period on record.

Austrias Alps hit by climate change

Austria, with its sensitive Alpine regions, has been particularly hard hit by climate change, a major survey says.
The Austrian Climate Change Assessment Report 2014 says average temperatures in Austria have risen by almost 2C since 1880.
This is compared with a global rise of 0.85C in the same period.
