NASA Study reveals nearly one-fifth of Global Warming over the years has been missed

 

Written by Alan Buis
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A new NASA-led study finds that almost one-fifth of the global warming that has occurred in the past 150 years has been missed by historical records due to quirks in how global temperatures were recorded. The study explains why projections of future climate based solely on historical records estimate lower rates of warming than predictions from climate models.

The study applied the quirks in the historical records to climate model output and then performed the same calculations on both the models and the observations to make the first true apples-to-apples comparison of warming rates.

Difficulties in making weather measurements in the Arctic have led to underrepresentation of this rapidly warming area in historic temperature records. (British Columbia Ministry of Transport)

Nashville Sounds score late on wild pitch to beat Omaha Storm Chasers 2-1

 

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds concluded a wild day with a 2-1 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers on a walk-off wild pitch in front of 8,087 fans Friday night at First Tennessee Park.

With the bases loaded and nobody out in a 1-1 game in the bottom of the ninth, Omaha’s Clayton Mortensen uncorked a pitch in the dirt that got away from catcher Parker Morin. Sounds shortstop Chad Pinder raced home with the winning run to push Nashville’s record to 55-45.

The start of the game was delayed due to travel delays the Sounds and much of the Pacific Coast League experienced Thursday night and into Friday. The team didn’t arrive in Nashville until close to 6:30pm.
