This issue's Temperature Record of the week is from Aurora, IL. Visit our U.S. Climate Data section to plot and view these data for yourself.

The Disappearing Ice Fields of Glacier National Park: Are they really wasting away for the reason Al Gore once said they were, i.e., because of greenhouse gas emissions?  Or is that simplistic notion but a tunnel-vision expression of seriously myopic thinking?

Subject Index Summaries
Snow (Europe): Real-world observations of snowfall trends in Europe are incompatible with IPCC and United Nations pronouncements regarding CO2-induced global warming and its effects on the continent's winter weather.

Tannins: What are they?  How are they influenced by CO2?  Why do we care?

Journal Reviews
Climate Models: Are They Improving?: One would certainly hope so; but we must not forget the alternative: they could possibly be getting worse.

A 141-Year History of Annual Levels of the U.S. Great Lakes: Do the data provide any evidence of the catastrophic consequences typically predicted by climate alarmists to accompany what they describe as the unprecedented global warming of the past century?

Fluxes of Water to and from the Sea: How well are they constrained by data and theory?  And what do they imply about changes in global sea level?

Calcification Response of a West Atlantic Coral to Global Warming: Do rising temperatures and CO2 concentrations retard the coral's calcification rate?  Or do they enhance it?

CO2 Enrichment Effects on a Plant-Herbivore Association: Which benefits more, the plant or the herbivore?
