Multi Meter Sea Level Rise, Antarctic Sea Ice & Ice Melt Acceleration

A pair of new studies released on Monday share a same ominous message — that our planet’s ice is melting at an alarming rate, which is bad news for global sea levels. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/14/world/climate-change-antarctica-ice-melt-twin-studies/index.html Narration by Cormac Bren Antarctic ice-sheet sensitivity to obliquity forcing enhanced through ocean connections https://www.nature.com/articles/s41561-018-0284-4 Four decades of Antarctic Ice Sheet mass…

Extreme Weather + Lack of Climate Action top Davos Global Risks Report 2019

The world is facing the increased risk of political confrontations between major powers, which is hindering solutions to challenges like climate change, according to the The WEF report, called the Global Risks Report 2019. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/16/davos-founders-warn-of-rising-tension-between-the-worlds-superpowers.html Read the report https://www.weforum.org/reports/the-global-risks-report-2019 Speakers: Aengus Collins, Head of Global Risks and Geopolitical Agenda Alison Martin, Group Chief Risk Officer,…

Are We Becoming too Dumb to Solve the Big Problem of Climate Change?

Recent studies suggest that various pollution sources contribute to the decline of cognitive abilities, IQ scores, human intelligence. Could this trend potentially affect our collective efforts to combat climate change?

Arctic Sea Ice Is the Thinnest and Youngest It’s Been in 60 Years

NASA GODDARD: Arctic Sea Ice Is the Thinnest and Youngest It’s Been in 60 Years https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFFvJYpg4xk ANDY LEE ROBINSON: Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Volumes 1979-2018 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZzEUJ86PCg NASA CLIMATE CHANGE: Annual Arctic sea ice minimum 1979-2018 with area graph MMCM: Wistful https://soundcloud.com/mmcm/wistful

Is THIS Graph the only one needed to act on Global Warming?

Studies point to cognitive impairments at carbon dioxide levels believed possible by the end of this century, additional observation informed models tend to project higher warming scenarios, further research points to the possibility of self-reinforcing feedbacks in the climate system – again affecting the outcome of current unmitigated releases of heat-trapping gases to Earth’s atmosphere.…

CO2 May Make Earth +10-15ºC Hotter, Like Early Paleogene

A new study led by scientists at the University of Bristol has warned that unless we mitigate current levels of carbon dioxide emissions, Western Europe and New Zealand could revert to the hot tropical climate of the early Paleogene period – 56-48 million years ago. https://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2018/july/co2-levels-paleogene-period.html Read The Atlantic article here: They were strange days…

In Just 10-15 Years World May Hit 2 Degrees of Warming

Back in 2011, a Cornell University research team first made the groundbreaking discovery that leaking methane from the shale gas fracking boom could make burning fracked gas worse for the climate than coal. https://www.desmogblog.com/2018/04/11/climate-change-two-degree-warming-fracking-natural-gas-rush-ingraffea Why a half-degree temperature rise is a big deal https://climate.nasa.gov/news/2458/why-a-half-degree-temperature-rise-is-a-big-deal Paris 1.5-2°C target far from safe, say world-leading scientists http://www.climatecodered.org/2017/07/paris-15-2c-target-far-from-safe-say.html Transcript…

This new Antarctic Discovery will affect You massively

Past studies of Antarctica’s accelerated glacier retreat focused on regional trends, a new study now finds continental trends of over ten percent of marine terminating glaciers moving inland. Current peak retreat has been documented to be in the ballpark of 25 meters each single year. Read Chris Mooney’s Washington Post article study summary goo.gl/HuxtxL /…

Most accurate climate models predict greatest future warming

The climate change simulations that best capture current planetary conditions are also the ones that predict the most dire levels of human-driven warming, according to a statistical study released in the journal Nature Wednesday. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2017/12/06/the-most-accurate-climate-change-models-predict-the-most-alarming-consequences-study-claims Greater future global warming inferred from Earth’s recent energy budget https://www.nature.com/articles/nature24672 Greater future global warming inferred from Earth’s recent energy…
