Experts and Updates on Climate Change

First a few graphics showing that our planet is warming rapidly.
The warming is expected to lead to climate weirdness ... unexpected and sometimes more severe weather events (Sandy) or unusual weather patterns (droughts or floods)

  • NASA scientists react to 400 ppm carbon milestone  http://climate.nasa.gov/400ppmquotes/
    "As a college professor who lectures on climate change, I will have to find a way to look into those 70 sets of eyes that have learned all semester long to trust me and somehow explain to those students, my students – who still believe in their young minds that success mostly depends on good grades and hard work, who believe in fairness, evenhandedness and opportunity – how much we as people have altered our environment, and that they will end up facing the consequences of our inability to act.

by Experts in the field

Jennifer Francis, Professor, Rutgers University presents evidence that climate weirdness is connected to climate change.
She provides an unprecedented number of sobering events - extreme records from heat, snow, tornadoes, and floods.

Provides also historical  correlations with CO2 levels - and upward trend in temperatures; and how we know that humans are causing the climate effects.

The sea ice in the Arctic Ocean dropped below the previous all-time record set in 2007. This year also marks the first time that there has been less than 4 million square kilometers (1.54 million square miles) of sea ice since satellite observations began in 1979.  The National Snow and Ice Data Center (www.nsidc.org) will confirm the final minimum ice extent data and area once the melt stabilizes, usually in mid-September.

 
 
Stephen Schneider
