Large-scale US wind power would cause warming that would take roughly a century to offset

Extracting energy from the wind causes climatic impacts that are small compared to current projections of 21st century warming, but large compared to the effect of reducing US electricity emissions to zero with solar. Researchers report the most accurate modelling yet of how increasing wind power would affect climate, finding that large-scale wind power generation would warm the Continental United States 0.24 degrees Celsius because wind turbines redistribute heat in the atmosphere.

Coastal erosion in the Arctic intensifies global warming

The loss of arctic permafrost deposits by coastal erosion could amplify climate warming via the greenhouse effect. A study using sediment samples from the Sea of Okhotsk on the eastern coast of Russia revealed that the loss of Arctic permafrost at the end of the last glacial period led to repeated sudden increases in the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere.

Yahoo News explains: What's the other cause impacting global warming?

Yahoo News explains: What's the other cause impacting global warming?The authors of the study predict a 58 percent chance that the next few years will be “anomalously warm,” with a 69 percent chance that earth’s oceans will be too. The study found that that warming trend is not just the result of a steady increase in human-made climate change driven by emissions of greenhouse gases. The study used data from 10 climate-change models and found that natural variabilities were the cause of a global warming “hiatus” in the early 2000s.

Global warming risk: Rising temperatures from climate change linked to rise in suicides

Rising temperatures due to human-caused climate change could lead to increasing suicide rates in both the U.S. and Mexico, a study released Monday suggests. By comparing historical temperature and suicide data, researchers found a strong correlation between warm weather and increased suicides.
