When will humanity ever hit the height of its ever-growing carbon emissions?

We were duped.  Or, at least, we were given some false hope. In the three years between 2014 and 2016, global carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels had finally stopped increasing and leveled out. Emissions weren’t yet going down — but there was the potential that they had peaked.  Perhaps, mused scientists, this...CONTINUE READING

Greenland is in hot water

Scientists have watched Greenland’s colossal ice sheet shrink at an accelerated rate for the last 20 years. Now, researchers have solid proof that the current melting of Earth’s second-largest ice sheet — which is about 2.5 times the size of Texas — is quite abnormal compared to previous centuries. Researchers published their report Wednesday in...CONTINUE READING

Another major U.S. climate report dropped. But you probably missed it.

You probably at least heard about the latest big U.S. climate report — even though the Trump Administration attempted to furtively release it on Black Friday. In the end the plan backfired, as many of the nation’s top newspapers highlighted the grim conclusions of the Fourth National Climate Assessment. Yet, that same day at the...CONTINUE READING

The EPA has lost its mind

There’s something truly out of place amid a slew of uneventful news releases on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website: Six bizarre sentences, accusing the Obama Administration of distorting climate science.  Posted to the federal agency’s site on Wednesday, the brief missive contends that Obama’s scientists improperly influenced the new congressionally-mandated National Climate Assessment by...CONTINUE READING

Trump dismisses climate change study by his own government: ‘I don’t believe it’

Donald Trump has dismissed a damning climate change study produced by his own government, simply telling reporters, “I don’t believe it.” The U.S. president rejected the findings of the report, which was produced by over 300 prominent climate scientists and 13 federal agencies and departments.

California cities now have the worst air pollution on Earth as smoke blows into town

Oakland, a Northern California city with a population of over 425,000, had the worst air quality in the world Saturday morning. Wildfire smoke wafting over from the still-growing Camp Fire — by far the deadliest wildfire in state history — had inundated many heavily-populated California cities and towns with small bits of pollution thinner than...CONTINUE READING

When will this terrible wildfire season in California end?

Rain will be the antidote to the worst of this California fire season. Most years, some rains would have already arrived. But California’s grasses, woodlands, and forests remain profoundly parched — with some areas even matching or exceeding records for dryness after record-breaking summer heat and persistently dry autumn winds.  While rains won’t completely stomp...CONTINUE READING

Camp Fire is deadliest in California history, and numbers may grow

After transforming the once tranquil town of Paradise, California into charred automobiles and tales of horror, the Camp Fire takes its infamous spot as the deadliest wildfire in California history.  At a multi-agency press conference Monday night, the Butte Country Sheriff’s Office announced that 42 have been confirmed dead. This grim statistic surpasses the 29...CONTINUE READING

Firefighters slam Trump’s illogical tweet about out-of-control California fires

As thousands of firefighters battled uncontrolled flames in both Northern and Southern California on Saturday, President Trump tweeted out an ill-informed, distorted message about the cause of these deadly autumn infernos.  But the firefighting community quickly rebutted the president‘s rash claims, wherein he blamed “gross mismanagement of the forests,” while also threatening to cut federal...CONTINUE READING

The EPA completely axed its climate change websites. But why are NASA’s still live?

Sometime during the night of Oct. 16, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) eliminated more than 80 climate change websites — many of the last vestiges to the agency’s online recognition of climate change.  The deletions — caught by the watchdog group Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI) — show a growing disparity between...CONTINUE READING
