Dr. Michael Mann – Are We In Runaway Climate Change?

Dr. Michael Mann, Earth System Science Center-Penn State University/Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change (2nd edition) joins Thom. We had all better hope these scientists are wrong about the planet’s future. Scientists now say that ice melt in Greenland and Antarctica could speed up faster than we previously thought. But that’s not just going to raise…

Ted Scambos on new Antarctic Ice Study insights

Ted Scambos, Lead Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, weighs in on the latest study showing increased vulnerability of the Antarctic ice sheet to collapse. Is it possible that the most recent study of ice instability in Antarctica is cracking the unstable cliff face of climate denial? (how’s that for a tortured…

Sea level rise estimates doubled

Brady Dennis and Chris Mooney from The Washington post, recently reported on updated sea level rise projections. Sea levels could rise nearly twice as much as previously predicted by the end of this century if carbon dioxide emissions continue unabated, an outcome that could devastate coastal communities around the globe, according to new research published Wednesday. The main reason? Antarctica. Scientists…

Climate action

Climate action describes various efforts to prevent what is considered dangerous climate change. See also: Politics of global warming Agriculture See also: Climate change and agriculture According to the EPA, agricultural soil management practices can lead to production and emission of nitrous oxide (N2O), a major greenhouse gas and air pollutant. Activities that can contribute…
