Climate deniers love to repeat this dead wrong talking point. Here’s how to refute it.

On Sunday morning, CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked U.S. Senator Marco Rubio whether he thought the changing climate on Earth today was “at least in part” caused by humans.  On live television, Rubio acknowledged that humans were partly responsible, and then immediately sowed some doubt into his answer. “I think many scientists would debate what...CONTINUE READING

Climate change could threaten the world’s beer supply. Do you care about global warming now?

Some 10,000 years ago, after the frigid Ice Age ended, humans tamed the nutritious grain, barley.  It blossomed in a fertile realm of early civilization spanning contemporary states like Israel, Palestine, Jordan and beyond. Then 5,000 years later, peoples in the Zagros Mountains of modern-day Iran learned to brew barley beer. Today, farmers globally harvest...CONTINUE READING

An appreciation of the persistently grim tweets from the Norway Ice Service

Monday through Friday of each week, the Norwegian Ice Service, a government agency within the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, tweets out rather dismal news about the state of the thawing Arctic. But these tweets aren’t intended to be grim. They’re simply an objective account of the modern Arctic reality. Each morning, the agency puts the current...CONTINUE READING

Arctic ice hit one of its lowest points on record, but there’s another grim statistic

Sea ice in the Arctic has just about melted to its lowest point of 2018, and this reinforces a trend of dwindling ice atop the globe — where the climate is warming two to three times faster than the rest of the planet. As of last week, it’s the sixth-lowest ice extent — known as the...CONTINUE READING

If Earth’s great ice sheets start collapsing, massive undersea walls could hold them back

It would be best for humanity if the colossal ice sheets that blanket Antarctica stayed put. But, there’s growing evidence that as the planet heats up, these sprawling glaciers could begin flowing into the ocean at an accelerated pace, boosting sea levels not in feet — but yards. To halt the melting ice, some scientists...CONTINUE READING

What can hundreds of dead penguins teach us about climate change?

A warmer world might be a penguin-less world.  New research has connected hundreds of mummified penguin carcasses to two disastrous weather events thought to be influenced by climate change. The study, which was published in the Journal of Geophysical Research – Biogeosciences, warns that these events might foreshadow what’s to come if the Earth continues...CONTINUE READING

The last 5 Augusts have been the hottest in recorded history

Earth’s accelerated warming trend continued this August, as the sweltering month proved to be one of the hottest Augusts in recorded history.  In fact, each of the last five Augusts are now the warmest since reliable record-keeping began nearly 140 years ago, in the early 1880s. August 2018 is officially the fifth-warmest, but nearly indistinguishable...CONTINUE READING

In just four days, extreme heat melted the snow off this massive glacier

Earth’s Northern Hemisphere experienced a scorching summer, with 90-degree temperatures in Arctic reindeer country and heat waves toppling records around the globe.  In Canada’s Kluane National Park, the massive Lowell Glacier felt the heat this summer, too.  Both NASA and European Space Agency satellites captured bounties of snow from the previous winter melting from the...CONTINUE READING

Earth is the warmest it’s been in 120,000 years

The last three Julys on Earth have been the three warmest ever recorded. But, they may also be the warmest months to occur on our planet in about 120,000 years. Following NASA’s recent announcement that July 2018 was the third warmest such month since reliable record keeping began in 1880, climate scientist Stefan Rahmstorf, head...CONTINUE READING
