Climate Documentary: The Cross of the Moment

Watch here https://www.bitchute.com/video/VNQz7J0zssw/ The Cross of the Moment attempts to connect the dots between Fermi’s Paradox, climate change, capitalism, and collapse. Interviews with top scientists and public intellectuals are woven together into a narrative that is challenging, exhausting, and often depressing as it refuses to accept the easy answers posited by other overly-simplistic climate change…

AGU 2015: Eric Rignot – Ice Sheet Systems and Sea Level Change

Scientific Discipline Cryosphere Speaker Eric Rignot (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory) Abstract Modern views of ice sheets provided by satellites, airborne surveys, in situ data and paleoclimate records while transformative of glaciology have not fundamentally changed concerns about ice sheet stability and collapse that emerged in the 1970’s. Motivated by the desire to learn more about…

AGU 2015: Michael Mann explains why Scientists need to speak up more #Ethics #PrecautionaryPrinciple

AGU 14 December 2015: If You See Something, Say Something Speakers: Michael Mann (Pennsylvania State University), Kent Peacock (University of Lethbridge) Scientists have a collective ethical obligation to communicate the implications of their science and to communicate it as accurately and fully as possible. Nowhere is that obligation more profound than in areas of research,…

AGU 2015: The impacts of heat stress on densely populated regions in the 21st century

Globally, heat kills more people than any other weather-related event. With temperatures and humidity expected to increase in the coming decades, heat stress is projected to have increasingly severe impacts on many regions of the world. Here, researchers estimate the global exposure to fatal heat stress throughout the 21st century and its effects on human…

AGU 2015: Alaska’s thawing permafrost Latest results and future projections

Alaska’s permafrost is starting to thaw as the climate warms, and scientists project there will be even greater thawing of the frozen soils in the coming decades, releasing carbon into the atmosphere, and impacting ecological systems and infrastructure. A panel of permafrost experts will unveil new findings about permafrost degradation in Alaska, where permafrost covers…

AGU 2015: Jennifer Francis recent studies on Weather Blocking Patterns

Recent Changes in Blocking Characteristics Assessed Using Self-Organizing Maps Speaker: Jennifer Ann Francis Blocking anticyclones are known to be associated with persistent weather patterns that often lead to extreme weather events. An outstanding question, however, is whether the frequency and/or intensity of these dynamical features are changing in response to human-caused climate change, and in…
