Losing the View From Above

A precipitous decline in weather satellites poses challenges for weather risk managers.

"Amazon’s loss of power last month was minimal compared with what could happen if the U.S. grid is severely hit by solar storms. What can companies do to prepare?" --CFO

Denying the Deniers

"Judah L. Cohen and his coauthors...research suggests that temperatures have continued to rise in many parts of the world during some parts of the year, even as the global average has barely budged."

Scientists using satellite data to investigate greenness dynamics should take more care to filter out all corrupt data before drawing any conclusions, according to researchers in the US. | May 25, 2012

Summer hot streak about to end?

"Atmospheric and Environmental Research also factored dry soil into its forecast, said AER’s Judah Cohen, who bucked conventional wisdom and forecast a mild winter of 2011-12. He’s going his own way again, calling for a warmer-than-normal summer in much of the nation, including the Northeast corridor."

Seasonal Subtleties

"Cohen et al. ... they show that warming has continued apace and that the seeming slowdown in the upward march of global annual average temperatures is a reflection of marked seasonal differences: Only in the winter has it not gotten warmer."

Europe Hammered by Winter, Is North America Next?

"Cohen's research is cutting edge and could bring important improvements to forecasting climate and weather over North America and Europe," says Patzert. "Cohen and others are on the threshold of understanding of how climate change affects the behavior of the Arctic Oscillation."--NASA climatologist Bill Patzert of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Cold Winters in a warming world

"Three cold European winters on the trot, and a faltering in the long term rise in global average temperatures - signs for some that something is wrong with climate science. Not so for forecaster Judah Cohen." --BBC Radio 4 | February 2, 2012
