Bloomberg: The American public has turned away from outright denial of climate change. Sixty-three percent of adults describe the problem as “serious” in the latest opinion poll from the Washington Post and ABC News, a…

Kevin Anderson – Delivering on 2°C: evolution or revolution?

With fourteen of the fifteen warmest years on record having occurred since the year 2000; with oceans both warming and acidifying; and with unequivocal scientific evidence that burning fossil fuels is the principal cause – what can we do to rapidly reduce emissions? This lecture will revisit the mitigation agenda in light of the IPCC’s…

NASA: Earth potential to absorb Emissions is out of Balance

A Breathing Planet, Off Balance NASA:  Earth’s land and ocean currently absorb about half of all carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, but it’s uncertain whether the planet can keep this up in the future. NASA’s Earth science program works to improve our understanding of how carbon absorption and emission processes work…

NASA Rising Seas: The State of the Greenland Ice Sheet (2015)

Seas around the world have risen an average of nearly 3 inches since 1992, with some locations rising more than 9 inches due to natural variation, according to the latest satellite measurements from NASA and its partners. An intensive research effort now underway, aided by NASA observations and analysis, points to an unavoidable rise of…

The Hidden Meltdown of Greenland!

Aug. 28, 2015: More than 90 percent of our planet’s freshwater ice is bound in the massive ice sheets and glaciers of the Antarctic and Greenland. As temperatures around the world slowly climb, melt waters from these vast stores of ice add to rising sea levels. All by itself, Greenland could bump sea levels by…
