The recent passing of D.A. Henderson reminds us of how bad smallpox was. Here's how global warming could bring smallpox back in full force.
In this episode, psychologist Per Espen Stoknes discusses his book: What We Think About When We Try Not to Think About Global Warming. Stoknes has developed a strategy for science communicators who find themselves confronted with climate change deniers who aren’t swayed by facts and charts. Show More Summary
GREAT MOMENTS IN OBJECTIVE JOURNALISM: NYT Looking To Hire A “Climate Change Editor” To Make Global Warming Story “More Appealing.” Flashback: Industry house organ Editor & Publisher demanded in 2007, “Climate Change: Get Over Objectivity, Newspapers.” A decade later, it’s safe to say that there are few, if any issues left, that the DNC-MSM covers […]
By 2060 Phoenix Arizona will have 132 days a year over 100F. Dallas will 55 and Pecos Texas 101 days. My view about problems: We should solve them. If the Earth really does heat up substantially then we should pull the CO2 back out of the atmosphere while also releasing cooling gases. Show More Summary
Paolo Venturella Architecture just unveiled plans for a fantastical Global Cooling Skyscraper that’s designed to fight global warming by cooling the entire planet. The massive skyscraper would extend into space, providing a barrier between the Earth and the Sun in the form of a greenhouse. Show More Summary
Are you looking for a job? Well, good news. The New York Times is looking for a Global Warming (now called "Climate Change" when the warming bit didn't happen) editor. Anyone can apply. Here is the happy announcement from the Times:
Why post a report about methane? Methane is a more potent GHG than good ol' CO2. Global warming plays tricks on us via the hydrologic cycle. End of story. Hot off the presses (sorry!) from the wonderful folks at the Congressional Research Service: Methane: An Introduction to Emission Sources and...
Al Gore has long been one of the highest-profile climate change activists in the United States. He created the iconic global warming presentation An Inconvenient Truth, and since his tenure as vice president under President Bill Clinton, he has spent a good portion of his time warning against man-made climate change and global warming.

"Meat Climate Change: The 2nd Leading Cause of Global Warming" highlights the incredible damage agricultural practices do to our planet and psyches and offers viable solutions.
Global warming caused by the burning of fossil fuels is heating up the North Pole and South Pole, causing the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets to melt. The rapidly retreating glaciers could have far-reaching consequences for the planet,...Show More Summary
SEATTLE — Global cooling is quickly becoming the next major battleground in the war on global warming. Rising temperatures and a growing middle class in developing countries has led to a staggering increase in the use of air conditioning. Show More Summary
Every year, humans advance climate change and global warming by injecting about 30 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Scientists believe they've found a way to convert all these emissions into energy-rich fuel in a carbon-neutral cycle that uses a very abundant natural resource: silicon. Show More Summary
UNSETTLED: Supposed ‘Ground Breaking’ Study Only Proves Warming Proponents Have Jumped The Shark. They called it a “ground breaking study,” I call it rubbish. This new study claims that global warming began in 1830 just when the industrial revolution began to pick up steam (no pun intended). What they didn’t take into account was just […]
TORONTO, ON - Every year, humans advance climate change and global warming - and quite likely our own eventual extinction - by injecting about 30 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. A team of scientists from the University...Show More Summary
New research commissioned by the Australian Climate Institute has concluded that it is imperative for Australia to involve itself in limiting global warming to well below 1.5°C to prevent the impacts upon Australia entering into “uncharted...Show More Summary
Researchers caution that global warming signals are being masked by random weather variations and report that the human influence on snowfall levels will become detectable within the next few decades. In a warmer world, scientists expect to see an increase in snowfall over the Antarctic because of higher levels of moisture in the air. Show More Summary
The other day I posted an article about how ridiculously warm July 2016 was globally. Like every month for 10 months in a row, it was the hottest such month since records have been reliably kept (starting in 1880). This happens so often now that I just repost the same article, with the dates and numbers updated. Show More Summary
Global change is affecting marine ecosystems through a combination of different stressors such as warming, ocean acidification and oxygen depletion. Very little is known about the interactions among these factors, especially with respect to gelatinous zooplankton. Show More Summary
Migrations in Motion predicts a new kind of migration---one forced by climate change. The post Here's Where Species Will Flee Because of Global Warming appeared first on WIRED.
Contrary to the implication made in Rick Casey’s recent San Antonio Express-News commentary titled “Smith in Another Global Warming Tiff,” published on July 30, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) and his fellow Republicans on the U.S. House Science,...Show More Summary
