Elevated CO2 Enhances the Potential for Carbon Storage in the Soils of Periodically-Burned Oak-Palmetto Ecosystems: What are the broad implications of this finding for the global carbon cycle and the so-called missing carbon sink?

Subject Index Summaries
Antarctica (Sea Level): Is the unprecedented global warming of the past two millennia, as climate alarmists like to describe the 20th century increase in mean global air temperature, having a major impact on Antarctica's contribution to global sea level rise?

Dimethyl Sulfide: Dimethyl sulfide is a climatically-important trace gas that plays a prominent role in a number of negative feedback phenomena that tend to counter greenhouse gas-induced global warming.  How significant is its impact?

Journal Reviews
Little Ice Age-to-Modern Warm Period Transition Along the Northern Eurasia Timberline: What do the data reveal about the role of anthropogenic CO2 emissions in post-1910 global warming?

A Drought History of Pyramid Lake, Nevada, USA: What does it look like?  And what is responsible for the variations it contains?

Response of Second- and Third-Generation Wheat Plants to Elevated CO2: Do they respond any better or worse than first-generation plants?

Nitrogen Dynamics in a Slightly-CO2-Enriched Pasture: Is there enough inorganic nitrogen in the world's soils (or can enough be made available) to enable the planet's vegetation to respond to the fullest extent possible to the aerial fertilization effect of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content?

Battling to Protect the Biosphere from the Bad Effects of UV-B Radiation: Is it the Montreal Protocol?  No, it's the rising atmospheric CO2 concentration.
