Editorial
Will Global Warming Cause Earth's Forests to Lose Carbon?: Climate alarmists are quick to claim that CO2-induced global warming will change earth's forests from carbon sinks to carbon sources, thereby enhancing the rate of greenhouse warming in a positive feedback cycle that produces catastrophic climatic consequences.  But is this claim correct?

Subject Index Summaries
Temperature (Trends - Regional: Europe, Northern) : Climate alarmists claim CO2-induced global warming should be most evident in high northern latitudes.  Do temperature data from northern Europe support this contention?

Health Effects (Temperature -- Dengue Fever): Climate alarmists are notorious for proclaiming that global warming will lead to more and greater outbreaks of dengue fever and other mosquito-borne diseases throughout the world if the atmosphere's CO2 concentration continues to rise, pushing air temperatures to ever higher values.  Are they correct?

Journal Reviews
A Century of Climate Change in Nuuk Fjord, Greenland: What has been happening in the vicinity of the fjord?  How does it relate to the climate history of the rest of Greenland, the Northern Hemisphere, and the world?  And what do the answers to these questions suggest about the CO2-induced global warming theory and its host of imagined disastrous consequences?

The Paleosalinity-Based Climate Record of the Past Millennium at Qinghai Lake, China: What it reveals strikes a doubly troubling blow to the Mann et al.-derived and IPCC-endorsed climate history of the Northern Hemisphere.

Infectious Diseases in a Warming World: Running Rampant or Under Control?: Will there be higher or lower incidences of major vector- and water-borne diseases if global air temperatures rise to significantly higher levels in the years and decades ahead?

Global Warming and the Rose Grain Aphid: How will the former affect the latter?  Why do we care?

Carbon Sequestration in Eastern Canadian Peatlands: How has it changed over the past 10,000 years?
