Detailing climate change from past to present
With satellites orbiting the Earth, thermometers and other instrumentation galore, scientists have no problem in recording our planet's weather and assessing our changing climate, according to climate columnist Ray Johnson.
Recent data continue to support climate change
Ray Johnson looks at 2012 and some recent temperature data for the 48 contiguous states and see how that fits with earlier data.
Solar energy: Clean source of electricity for the planet
The source of life, the sun, is a useful power element that will provide for billions of years.
Gardening map, temp records show warming trend
In just about all areas of the country, the climate has warmed significantly so that zones have changed by up to one number or more, Ray Johnson writes.
Carbon, compounds have many properties
There are many fine qualities of carbon, though one makes it a greenhouse gas, columnist Ray Johnson writes.
The answer is blowing in the wind
The use of alternative energy methods has dramatically increased over the years, causing a decreased use of fossil fuels and an increase in private investment, columnist Ray Johnson writes.
Oceans taking brunt of excess carbon dioxide
Increased levels of CO2 due to the combustion of fossil fuels are adversely affecting our ocean's acidity levels and underwater ecosystems, columnist Ray Johnson writes.
Climate change no longer a puzzle
Research has shown that our Earth is currently going through an energy imbalance, columnist Ray Johnson writes.
Oceans seeing effects of rising temperatures
There is a planet-wide circulation of water in the oceans that transports heat, and greenhouse gases are contributing to rising temperatures in our planet's oceans, columnist Ray Johnson writes.
Dealing with the rising energy problem
Many energy experts, scientists and planners say that we do not have a carbon-dioxide problem so much as an energy problem, namely, wasted energy, columnist Ray Johnson writes.
