It thus seems reasonable to say we are entering another Ice Age according to Milankovitch cycles. Some of the Milankovitch conditions would appear to make the Earth ripe for a new glacial epoch starting now, or perhaps a few hundred years ago. In particular, aphelion occurs in early July, and obliquity is low. Both of these make for mild northern hemisphere ...

No, we are not due for a new glaciation (not "Ice Age", we are in an ice age) from orbital forcing alone. Citing Ganopolski et. al. Critical insolation–CO2 relation for diagnosing past and future glacial inception Additionally, our analysis suggests that even in the absence of human perturbations no substantial build-up of ice sheets would occur ...

Its only marketing, not a science equation... It's saying that their gin gives back CO$_2$ from other gin which uses fertiliser, and saves a bit of crop space for livestock food. Overall, any crops tend deprive a region of carbon sinks and biodiversity. Cropland has reduced the worlds total CO$_2$ sinks by 50+ percent, so using 1 crop for 2 things saves CO$...

It seems to be a thing of the past. Apparently around 2010 the 30 years calming trend reversed. Since then, wind speeds and wave heights are picking up quickly, possibly in a decadal variation pattern. Young et. al. 2010 Global Trends in Wind Speed and Wave Height Possible application for the planning of wind turbines: Zhenzhong Zeng et.al. 2019 A reversal ...

Generally speaking, the tropics are a geographical term. It's the area on the surface of the planet where at least once a year the Sun passes directly overhead. It has relation to climate, but even then within the tropical region you have a variety of climate zones from rain-forests all the way to savannas and deserts. Being in tropical region only ensures ...
