No increase in global temperature variability despite changing regional patterns, study

In a paper published in Nature several months ago, Huntingford et al. (2013) write "there is considerable interest in determining whether global warming is increasing climate variability," due to the concerns of some scientists that an increase in

Climate change is causing animal body shrinkage

Rising global temperatures and changes in weather patterns have knock-on effects on the growth of a wide range of species. The change could have a major impact on the expanding human population, with major food sources like fish likely to reduce in size and crops
