Greenpeace was inspired by Coca Cola’s Christmas video, and created a remake! Studies show that up to 90% of seabirds now have plastic in their stomachs. We need to act urgently to stop plastic getting into our oceans. And we’re calling on Coca Cola – the world’s biggest soft drinks company – to lead the…
This NASA visualization is based on the latest IPCC report, and uses the business as usual scenario, where carbon dioxide concentrations rise to 936 parts per million—more than double today’s levels of 400 parts per million—by the year 2100. Temperature anomalies are estimated to be close to 4°C in the Arctic. https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=11453
The evidence is overwhelming that natural gas has no net climate benefit on timescales that matters to humans. A new study found that just the methane emissions leaking from New Mexico’s gas and oil industry are equivalent to the climate impact of approximately 12 coal-fired power plants. https://thinkprogress.org/natural-gas-no-climate-benefit-b9118a087875 Natural Gas has Major Role in Climate…

The ozone layer protects life on Earth from ultraviolet radiation but it is also a powerful greenhouse gas. Satellites can provide measurements of atmospheric ozone and monitor distribution changes with the seasons.

The Greenland ice sheet is one of the largest contributors to global sea level rise, and if completely melted, could add ~7 meters to sea level. In recent years, the imbalance of the ice sheet has increased with warmer atmospheric conditions. In this talk, Visiting Assistant Professor Samiah Moustafa describes the field’s current knowledge on…

Totten Glacier, the largest glacier in East Antarctica, is being melted from below by warm water that reaches the ice when winds over the ocean are strong — a cause for concern because the glacier holds more than 11 feet of sea level rise and acts as a plug that helps lock in the ice…
