‘Blue-green algae’ proliferating in lakes

The organisms commonly known as blue-green algae have proliferated much more rapidly than other algae in lakes across North America and Europe over the past two centuries – and in many cases the rate of increase has sharply accelerated since the mid-20th century, according to an international team of researchers led by scientists at McGill University.

Warming Temperatures Threaten Fragile Balance in Canadian Arctic

Sept. 23, 2014 | NY Times by: Michael Becker "As a doctoral candidate at McGill University in Montreal, I have spent three years researching how the planet’s changing climate is affecting the polar desert ecology of the high Arctic. It’s precisely this balance of climate and permafrost, ice and ecosystems that I’ve come here to study."

Reducing water scarcity possible by 2050

Water scarcity is not a problem just for the developing world. In California, legislators are currently proposing a $7.5 billion emergency water plan to their voters; and U.S. federal officials last year warned residents of Arizona and Nevada that they could face cuts in Colorado River water deliveries in 2016.

Global Warming: Planet Hits Natural Pause Button

International Business Times | July 22, 2014 By: Jayalakshmi K Global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 indicate a slowdown in global warming, but this was due to natural cooling fluctuation and not due to any decrease in greenhouse gas emissions - this has been proved by statistical analysis of the temperatures, conducted by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

Global warming ‘pause’ reflects natural fluctuation

Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

McGill Nonlinear Physics Professor and Climatologist Shaun Lovejoy: Global Warming is not a "Natural" Occurrence

Opinion: Research Shows the Global Warming isn't natural Published on June 9, 2014 | The Gazette by: Shaun Lovejoy Last year, the Quebec Skeptics Society laid down a challenge: “If anthropogenic global warming is as strong as scientists claim, then why do they need supercomputers to demonstrate it?” My immediate response was: “They don’t.”
