Top Scientists Explain How Deadly Tornadoes in the US South May Be Influenced by Climate Change | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Climate change is present in every single meteorological event, according to scientists who study global warming and extreme weather....reminds us of that awesome power, which is beyond our control and at the limits of our comprehension. We have also learned that humanity is meddling with that power, primarily through the burning of coal and oil that increases the amount of heat trapped in the atmosphere and oceans.

Who are these people who are going out and measuring ocean temperatures? Who are these people who are tracking the year-on-year retreat of the Arctic sea ice? Who are these people who are going out and measuring the small processes involved in cloud formation, in soil moisture retention, in ocean eddies, in evaporation?

Climate Change Video Games come of Age

Climate Change Video Games come of Age | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

There are games that look specifically at the health issues (such as Climate Health Impact by The Wellcome Trust and Playgen) and games that put the player in the position of trying to persuade the world’s countries to act together (Fate of the World). But there are also games that use the changed world as a narrative setting to explore what that shared future might be, exploring climate change both as creative inspiration and as gameplay subject matter. The example of this I’m going to look at, and how the science has informed the creative content, is the game ‘Brink‘.

The verdict is in on climate change

The verdict is in on climate change | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

When it comes to climate change, open-mindedness is the wrong approach.

Consider for a moment the case against tobacco. There too scientists were nearly unanimous in their conclusion, based on research, that tobacco use had serious health consequences. Meanwhile, the tobacco industry tried to play the role of defense attorney, offering up denials and dodges and pseudo-scientific studies denying a link between smoking and lung cancer. So how did Americans decide whom to believe?

Size, seed dispersal key to survival of Arctic plants facing climate change: study

Size, seed dispersal key to survival of Arctic plants facing climate change: study | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

“Genetic variation is crucial for species to adapt to changing climate,” said researcher Inger Greve Alsos, associate professor at the University of Tromsø in Norway.

“If a species with limited seed dispersal perish from an area, it means that this species as a whole will experience an irrevocable loss of genetic diversity.”
