The Current State of Arctic PERMAFROST THAW

Soil layers of permafrost that scientists expected to remain frozen for at least 70 more years have already begun thawing. NOTES In the Canadian Arctic, layers of permafrost that scientists expected to remain frozen for at least 70 years have already begun thawing. The once-frozen surface is now sinking and dotted with melt ponds and…

Global Warming is Accelerating

Back in 1982, Exxon’s environmental affairs office circulated an internal report to Exxon’s management which said that the consequences of climate change could be catastrophic, and that a significant reduction in fossil fuel consumption would be necessary to curtail future climate change. It also said that “there is concern among some scientific groups that once…

Earth Atmosphere Contains 415ppm CO2

Measurements at Mauna Loa by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography recorded 415.50ppm carbon dioxide CO2 concentration in the atmosphere for the first time in millions of years. This includes humans who evolved with around 280ppm. Temperature follows CO2, thus as additional carbon pollution is heating the atmosphere, with about 90% of this extra energy accumulated…
