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

A Record Heat Wave and Its Implications: Just how anomalous was the European heat wave of August 2003, and to what extent was it sustained by the greenhouse effect of prior anthropogenic CO2 emissions?

Subject Index Summaries
Volcanic Eruptions (Climatic Impact): What do we feel we know about the subject?  And how certain are we about what we think we know?

Transpiration (Herbaceous Plants - Non-Agricultural) : How will the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content impact evaporative water loss from non-agricultural herbaceous plants that are periodically exposed to varying degrees of water stress in their natural environment?

Journal Reviews
Southern Hemispheric Tropical Cyclones: How do those of the past five years compare with those of the preceding 36 years?

Recurring Large Storms of the South China Sea: Have they increased in tandem with the supposedly unprecedented global warming of the 20th century, as climate alarmists say severe storms should?

The Medieval Warm Period in Southern Patagonia, Argentina: How does it compare with the Modern Warm Period?

The Battle for Soybean Seed Production: CO2 vs. Ozone: Can slightly less than a doubling of the air's CO2 concentration overcome the deleterious effects of a tripling of the air's ozone concentration?

Response of Temperature- and Water-Stressed Alfalfa to Atmospheric CO2 Enrichment: If mean air temperature were to rise by 4C while the air's CO2 concentration rose by 325 ppm, what would be the consequences for the production of alfalfa?

climate alarmists to have risen at unprecedented rates.
