Heatwave continues to plague 13 provinces across China

Climate change forcings and feedbacks switching global weather patterns onto primordial tracks: FIRE-EARTH Models

FIRE-EARTH Climate Models show climate change forcings and feedbacks switching global weather patterns onto “primordial tracks.”

FIRE-EARTH Population Model shows mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.
