NASA Laser Reveals Miles of Greenland Ice Loss

What if you could measure a glacier in such detail that you could visualize its surface in 3D? And what if you could compare that view with data from one, two, even 20 years ago? NASA airborne campaigns like Operation IceBridge have been measuring Greenland and Antarctica’s glaciers and ice sheets with a range of…

Little Algae creates Huge Melt Feedback on Greenland Ice

Algae responsible for large albedo feedback on Greenland’s frozen surface, not only soot and dust. We believe gathering measurements from the surface of Greenland ice is fundamental to advancing our understanding of the melting Arctic. http://darksnowproject.org Video via https://www.youtube.com/user/greenman3610 Dark Snow 2017 Update “Am I really seeing that?” is a common sensation here, as below,…

Tell the Climate System Stories Again

Ever since scientists first began to explain the evidence that our climate was warming — and that human activities were probably to blame — people have been questioning the data, doubting the evidence and attacking the scientists who collect and explain it.

Climate Expert Mike Mann: Understanding Dire Climate Predictions

This 2016 lecture featuring Michael E Mann http://www.meteo.psu.edu/holocene/public_html/Mann/index.php begins with a review of the now-solid evidence for a human influence on the climate of recent decades. Such evidence includes instrumental measurements available for the past two centuries, paleoclimate observations spanning more than a millennium, and comparisons of the predictions from computer models with observed patterns…

Vanishing Arctic Ice and Amplification

While heat waves and more intense storms have been directly linked to a warming Earth, new research is exploring possible impacts of an Arctic that is warming at twice the pace of the rise in global temperatures. Jennifer Francis, Rutgers University, discusses new research and efforts to understand this controversial aspect of climate change in…

Warlike Climate Mobilization

The Climate Mobilization Victory Plan, written by Ezra Silk, is a policy document that tangibly demonstrates how the U.S. could eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, contribute to a global effort to restore a safe climate, and reverse ecological overshoot through a massive WWII-scale mobilization. http://www.postcarbon.org/the-climate-mobilization-victory-plan-foreword The Victory Plan (PDF) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByftlCTrJRYVejBuYUZkM1dKcms/view The Climate Mobilization…

Like Champagne opened, methane explosions resulted in Ocean craters

Like ‘champagne bottles being opened’: Scientists document an ancient Arctic methane explosion What could possibly go wrong, ignoring climate change, the warnings or clues from what science tells us, even if we were just creating a better world with clean energy, and millions of new jobs? One thing which could go very wrong, are based…
