Climate Warming Reduces Cloud Cover, Which Leads to Further Warming

A new study of the Eastern Pacific region, published in the latest issue of Science, finds that climate warming in recent decades has decreased cloud cover—which leads to more warming.The effect of low-level clouds on climate is one of the largest obstacles standing in the way of more confident predictions of global climate change. Low-level clouds are typically composed of water droplets and include the darker, flatter clouds often associated with a cloudy day.

Natural Resources of the Arctic Circle Revealed

Following an assessment of natural resources north of the Arctic Circle, researchers say that a full 30% of the world's undiscovered natural gas and 13% of its undiscovered oil could be found there. The research published in the latest edition of Science indicates that estimated Arctic oil reserves are relatively small compared to the known reserves in major petroleum exporting countries, so the researchers do not anticipate a major shift in the world's oil trade. However, they do expect the location and volume of predicted natural gas reserves inside the Arctic Circle to primarily benefit Russia. .
