2011: 10th Warmest Year, Warmest Year with La Nina Event, Lowest Arctic Sea Ice Volume

Geneva / Durban – Global temperatures in 2011 are currently the tenth highest on record and are higher than any previous year with a La Niña event, which has a relative cooling influence. The 13 warmest years have all occurred in the 15 years since 1997. The extent of Arctic sea ice in 2011 was the second lowest on record, and its volume was the lowest. These are some of the highlights of the provisional annual World Meteorological Organization State menton the Status of the Global Climate.

Wind Power: Long-Term Wind Speed Changes Estimated

Some recent international studies have shown a decrease in wind speeds in several parts of the globe, including across Australia. However, more recent results by CSIRO show that Australia’s average wind speed is actually increasing.

Scientists at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research have analyzed wind speed observations to understand the causes of variations in near-surface wind and explore long-term wind speed trends over Australia.

Penalizing Free-Riders: Game Theory Could Help Climate Negotiators

All international efforts to reduce global greenhouse-gas emissions are hampered by “free-riding” countries. A new approach on how to deal with such countries is given by a study using economic game theory which has been published in the ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences’ last week. In the study, scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research show how – at least on paper – a greater degree of international cooperation can be achieved.
