New study finds CO2 today enough to raise sea level by 20 metres

An international team of scientists, from Texas A&M University, the University of Southampton and the Swiss University ETH Zürich, led by the University of St Andrews, published their findings in the study, Atmospheric CO2 over the Past 66 Million Years from Marine Archives. The international team pulled together data collected over the last 15 years using high-tech laboratory techniques.  The combined data spans the…

Any reduction in emissions means shorter open-water periods

A new study be the University of Manitoba, finds that for every degree of global warming, the open water period in the Arctic will increase by roughly one month. The study, Arctic open-water periods are projected to lengthen dramatically by 2100 – published in the Nature journal Communications Earth & Environment, notes: The shrinking of Arctic-wide…

Will President Biden bring forward the carbon fee-and-dividend?

Climate scientist James Hansen in his latest blog, Fighting the Battles, Winning the War – once again reminds us of the carbon fee-and-dividend. And that President Joe Biden has the authority to bring it forward. Meanwhile, Canada already has a carbon fee-and-dividend, with British Columbia operating a system very similar to Fee and Dividend, as…

Covid-19 Sets the Stage for the Collapse of Human Civilization?

The histoty of the human species is full of examples detailing our vulnerabilities to collapse and total decline. As historian Jospeh Tainter explains, system complexity further works against us, most people probably call this today, incompetence.

How YouTube became the Largest Climate Misinformation Source on the Internet

It really began with Katrina in 2005, watching the footage of incredible destruction on Wunderground. I became concerned and followed people like Joe Romm at his excellent Climate Progress blog, or read the often highly technical expertise from actual climate scientists at RealClimate.org. We write the year 2008 I open the url YouTube.com looking for…

Climate Change and the Inevitable Hunger for War

Neuroscientist Joseph Herbert asked in Psychology Today, if without testosterone, would there be war? He briefly explains tendencies of the males drive, fueled by the testosterone hormone, for violence, and that in our entire human history, we went often to war. Young males have a natural tendency, which seems testosterone-related, to form coalitions.  This includes…

Scientists Detect Signs of Abrupt Climate Shift in Arctic

Ice cores obtained years ago document an ominous rise of temperatures, abrupt change manifesting just within a few decades. First scientists thought this must be an error, but slowly they realize what it could mean for us today. Research into the polar ocean, found, it is getting hotter at a rate faster than even the worst…

Massive Methane Hydrate Dissociation Discovered near Brazil Coast

A joint research team from Brazil and France, spearheaded by professor Marcelo Ketzer and his colleagues from the Linnaeus University uncovered methane gas leakage from gas hydrate dissociation in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. The study authors suggest that the leakage is tied to climate change, more specifically to ocean warming. Along the…
