Rising seas dramatically increase the odds of damaging floods from storm surges. Global warming has raised global sea level about 8 inches since 1880, and the rate of rise is accelerating. These are facts. And now, according to a new analysis by non-profit research organization Climate Central, the level of accelaration may be growing faster than previously thought and odds of “century floods” (or worse) occurring by 2030 are on track to double or more, over widespread areas of the United States. - http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2012/03/14-0 (includes map)

Arctic Melt Could Fuel Deep Freezes, Big Snows - "These pattern changes enhance blocking patterns that favor more frequent movement of cold air masses to middle and lower latitudes, leading to increased heavy snowfall in Europe, and the Northeast and Midwest regions of the United States." - http://www.livescience.com/18719-arctic-melt-fuel-deep-freezes-big-snows.html

NASA Report: Greenhouse Gases, Not Sun, Driving Warming

"In spite of the recent, prolonged lull in the sun's activity, Earth absorbed more solar energy than escaped back into space, a NASA analysis of the Earth's recent energy budget indicates.

"This imbalance indicates Earth is warming — since more energy is coming in than leaving — and it occurred during a period when the sun was emitting low levels of energy,[2005 to 2010].

"These results confirm greenhouse gases produced by human activities are the most important driver of global climate change, according to the researchers."

Two Important Papers February 26, 2011 : 4:15 PM

Joe Romm at Climate Progress reported on two important new papers from the Journal Nature that join the "growing body of evidence that human emissions fuel extreme weather, flooding that harm humans and the environment.”

According to Joe:
“Scientists have predicted for decades that human-caused global warming would increased extreme weather events that cause severe harm to humans, property, and the environment. These two studies are but the latest in a growing body of scientific literature demonstrating that these predictions are coming true now.”

“They should help lay to rest the myth that human-caused global warming will contribute to grievous harm only in some far-off future. They also strongly support the view that the human-induced increases in greenhouse gases have contributed to the devastating extreme events that hit Australia and other parts of the world in the past several months, helping to drive up food prices.”
