CAMPAIGNING FOR CLIMATE-SAFE PLANET Dressed as a polar bear, a man joins demonstrators against climate change in Cleveland, Ohio, in July 2016. The 197-nation Paris climate treaty, signed in 2015, vows to halt global warming at well under 2 degrees Celsius compared to mid-19th century ...
LIMITING global warming to 2 deg C will not prevent destructive and deadly climate impacts, as once hoped, dozens of experts concluded in a score of scientific studies released on Monday. A world that heats up by "2C" - long regarded as the temperature ceiling for a climate-safe planet - could see mass ...

PARIS: Even if humanity stops global warming in its tracks at two degrees Celsius, long seen as the guardrail for a climate-safe world, Arctic sea ice will still disappear in some years, scientists have warned. Holding the line at 1.5 degrees Celsius, however, would make a huge difference, according to two ...
... with different effects in different parts of the world. "Such weather extremes can increase vulnerability to food insecurity. "Some change is already unavoidable, but if global warming is limited to 1.5 C, this vulnerability is projected to remain smaller than at 2 C in approximately 76% of developing countries.".
All of us Republicans. All of us Independents. Why then is climate-change-global-warming so much a party issue? You probably have figured out that it is. There is a new survey from Gallup that confirms it. Gallup asked folks whether they think the seriousness of global warming is generally exaggerated.
30 de marzo de 2018, 13:42Mexico, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) Mexican glaciers are currently doomed to extinction due to climate change, warned the director of the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Hugo Delgado. He assured that with the advance of global ...

Among Democrats, 73 percent believe the effects of global warming have already begun and 87 percent believe global warming is caused by human activities. Republicans are far more skeptical, with only 41 percent believing the effects have started and 40 percent saying humans have caused global ...
Recently, an ancient burial ground estimated to be 7,200 years old was discovered off Manasota Key. It is now under 20 feet of water, but experts say it originally was 10 feet above sea level. Natural sea-level rise since the last ice age is continuing, and human activities are not responsible for that.
Cleveland could play a role in our nation's thinking on environmental protection again. That's the hope of a leading climate scientist who spoke at the Cleveland City Club today. Penn State Professor Michael Mann and his partners published in 1999 a now famous graph of global temperatures over the last ...
Disastrous weather events, which we have seen firsthand in the past two to three years particularly, are increasing and expected to continue and worsen because of this increased warming, all backed up by data that can be accurately extrapolated into the near future (“How global warming fueled five ...
WASHINGTON -- Climate scientists say an internal U.S. Environmental Protection Agency memo on how officials should talk to the public about global warming doesn't reflect reality. EPA's public affairs office put out "a set of talking points about climate change" to help the agency have a consistent ...
In September 2017, a team led by the University of Exeter's Richard Millar published a paper in Nature Geoscience, which was widely reported as suggesting that the Paris climate agreement's aspirational goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures is still technically within ...
Scientists first started writing about global warming in the 1850s. More than a century ago, others explored the possibility of human-caused climate change. And yet in 2018, a lot of people still lack a basic scientific understanding of the concept, so argues Boulder-based astrophysicist Jeffrey Bennett.
Americans have grown increasingly polarized in their views on global warming, according to a new poll. "In general, Democrats view global warming seriously, while Republicans view it skeptically," says Gallup, a research-based consulting company that conducted a survey this month about the ...
Faced with a planet that is on average 1.2C hotter than it was before the industrial revolution, scientists have been nothing if not ingenious. Ideas for slowing the pace of global warming include filling the oceans with iron filings, flying a giant mirror into space and lofting ice-spraying gondolas into the ...
The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) will hold its first public hearing this week on a landmark complaint alleging that several multinational oil and mining firms have violated the human rights of Filipinos by causing global warming that has led to natural disasters. Among those named in the complaint ...
Re: “Would Albert Einstein be a global warming skeptic?” March 16 point–counterpoint columns. I am dismayed that The Denver Post would devote so much space to a notorious climate-change denier, Will Happer, whose misleading claims have been widely debunked. Happer cherry-picks facts out of ...

Churches should not be afraid to “have the conversation” about climate change for political reasons, Dr. Antal said. “The Church is the place to have the conversation about the truth. Three-quarters of Americans believe in global warming, and two-thirds of them do not talk about it. The Church can change ...
In a federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday, major oil companies concurred with the “scientific consensus,” saying it was “extremely likely” that human activity has been driving global warming since the middle of the 20th century. They just don't think they can be sued for it. “Chevron accepts what the ...
Earth's global warming during the first decade of the twenty-first century slowed to about half that from 1950 to 2000, even though greenhouse gas concentrations increased almost a factor of two faster. IPCC's physical model simulations did not capture this lack of warming, motivating extensive scientific ...
While admitting the reality of human-caused global warming, lawyers for Chevron (the other oil giants have two weeks to tell Alsup if they agree with Chevron's science presentation) presented outdated science and repeatedly emphasized uncertainties about how fossil fuel emissions will affect global ...

The impacts of global warming are felt especially in mountainous regions, where the rise in temperatures is above average, affecting both glacierized landscapes and water resources. The repercussions of these changes are manifold and varied, from retreating glaciers to an increase in the frequency and ...
(Inside Science) -- In the 1999 movie The Matrix, humans darkened the sky to try to starve off the solar powered robots that were threatening to take over the world. But it didn't work. The move only made things worse as the robots simply turned human beings into living battery farms and created the matrix ...
As countries like China make progress in reducing air pollution, regional planners should be prepared for the cleaner air to cause a jump in temperatures even above those expected under global warming scenarios. At the same time, Samset says, rising temperatures will likely lead to an increase in ...
"It's important to note that the article doesn't address the direct and immediate impact of forest burning, such as emissions of black carbon [considered a major driver of global warming owing to its high capacity for absorbing solar radiation]. This impact exists, but it lasts only a few weeks. The article focuses ...
Intellectual dishonesty is a failure to apply standards of rational evaluation that one is aware of, usually in a self-serving fashion. Is there a historical pattern to the current arguments against human caused global warming? The simple answer is yes, as you will see. I very distinctly remember playing touch ...
Majorities in all generations say the country needs to continue making changes to give blacks equal rights with whites, reflecting a public shift in these views in recent years. But Millennials are far more likely to hold this view than Boomers and Silents. The current generational gap in opinion is a relatively ...
An iceberg floats past Bylot Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, July 24, 2017. If parts of the planet are becoming like a furnace because of global warming, then the Arctic is best described as the world's air-conditioning unit. The frozen north plays a crucial role in cooling the rest of the planet while ...
The study projects global energy supply and demand to 2040 to see if environmentally friendly policies make significant progress against global warming. It assumes a larger role for "renewables" — mostly wind and solar power — and other policies that would dampen fossil fuel consumption. Consider:.
The amount of future warming is predicated on the amount of emitted greenhouse gases and the sensitivity of earth's surface temperature to changes in their concentrations. Here we take a look at the emissions component. The U.N. currently entertains four emissions scenarios, all expressed as the change ...
