Climate research



            In a recent paper “Modulation of ice ages via precession and dust-albedo feedbacks” Ellis & Palmer describe key features of recent ice age records without reference to greenhouse gasses. This paper raises the question of the importance of dust, as modulated by Milankovitch cycles, and its relationship to anthropogenic CO2 as the primary cause of climate change and global warming.

            The next step is to define a research program based on Ellis’ hypothesis. How important is the role of dust and particulates vs anthropogenic CO2 on climate change?
