Trapping carbon pollution underground for thousands of years is key to fighting climate change

Trapping carbon emissions deep within Earth’s crust may be a clever way to keep warming greenhouse gases from amassing in the planet’s atmosphere.  Giant wind turbines and solar-paneled roofs are almost certainly the energy future, but until the greater transition from burning fuels is complete, fuel-burning plants will continue to expel carbon into the air,...CONTINUE READING

These trees have lived for 2,500 years. Now they’re suddenly dying

Baobab trees are among the oldest trees on the planet. Some are as old as 2,500 years. But now, some of the oldest and largest among them are dead and a group of researchers think “this is associated with increased temperature and drought.” Read more…More about Mashable Video, Global Warming, Drought, Climate Change, and Baobab...CONTINUE READING

You just lived through the hottest May on record in the contiguous U.S.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced today that the lower 48 U.S. states recently experienced their warmest May on record.  Records have now been kept for 124 years. “Last month, the U.S. sizzled with record warmth,” the government agency said in a statement. NOAA reports that temperature records in more than 8,590 locations...CONTINUE READING

Clouds are disappearing in Southern California, and we’re not totally sure why

Clouds above Los Angeles are vanishing. A new study recently published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters suggests that summer clouds over Southern California have dwindled as both increasing temperatures and heat-radiated from urban sprawl have driven clouds away. “Cloud cover is plummeting in southern coastal California,” Park Williams, a bioclimatologist at Columbia University and...CONTINUE READING

Extreme flooding in Maryland is a glimpse into our disaster-filled future

Last weekend, Ellicott City’s quaint Main Street, with red, white, and blue decorations draped from storefronts, became a churning brown river.  While several factors resulted in this Maryland town’s second “1,000-year storm” occurring in just the last 22 months, one increasingly significant contribution to the flooding is the amount of water vapor accumulating in Earth’s...CONTINUE READING

Particularly affected was Ellicott City, located about 14 miles west of Baltimore, which suffered intense flash flooding along its Main Street — the very same street that was turned into a raging river amidst...CONTINUE READING

Fighting climate change could save the world trillions of dollars

On the White House lawn in June 2017, President Donald Trump announced that “we’re getting out,” referring to his plan to pull the U.S. out of the historic Paris climate agreement — a deal he considers bad for the American economy.  But new research suggests that Trump is sorely mistaken.  The climate agreement, which is...CONTINUE READING

Researchers use deep-diving seals to track melting ice sheets in Antarctica

Hefty elephant seals regularly dive more than 2,500 feet underwater, holding their breath for 30 minutes while swimming in the dark, frigid ocean depths. This remarkable ability makes these mammals well-suited to collect critical data about deep, warming ocean waters that scientists believe could accelerate the thaw of the vulnerable West Antarctic glaciers. If melted...CONTINUE READING

Congressman thinks the seas are rising because of rocks. He’s wrong.

There are a lot of theories and counter-theories passed around by climate change deniers in government in an attempt to explain away the inconvenient truths around climate change. And this week, a Republican congressman presented quite a doozy of an explanation. GOP Representative Mo Brooks, who represents Alabama’s 5th district, was questioning Philip Duffy, president...CONTINUE READING

Extreme Arctic heat wave in 2016 wouldn’t have happened without climate change

Just days before Christmas in 2016, the North Pole was 50 degrees above its usual winter temperature. The top of the world was just above freezing.  Unusually warm air had smothered the Arctic throughout that year, and now a recently published report, led by government scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), found...CONTINUE READING
