Last week, as China’s icebreaker, the Xuelong (“Snow Dragon”) set sail from the port of Qingdao, heading for the Arctic with an international crew on board, Greenpeace’s ship, the Arctic Sunrise, a Greenpeace vessel, set sail from the US for the...
Extreme temperature swings thousands of years ago caused a dramatic shutdown in coral reef growth that lasted more than two millenniums — a finding that makes controlling climate change today all the more pressing, a new study suggests.
by KC Golden, via the GRIP Blog Al Gore tried to invoke the moral imperative for climate action. “It’s not about right and left;” he said, “it’s about right and wrong.” Climate deniers cynically pounced on Gore’s leadership as an opportunity to...
Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives, has some words of climate change warning for the United States: "You can't pick and choose on science." Nasheed should know.
Dramatic rises in sea level due to global warming are expected to overrun his and other low-lying island nations over the next century. Scientists predict that the Maldives in the Indian Ocean might be completely underwater by 2100 or at least uninhabitable due to the loss of fresh water and agricultural options. ...
Along with being an outspoken advocate for climate action, Nasheed is also a fervent campaigner for democracy. Once designated a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International, he was imprisoned numerous times by the previous autocratic regime. His 2008 election as president marked the end of the 30-year rule of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and the start of a new era.
Recently, Nasheed's efforts were recognized with the James Lawson Award for Achievement in the Practice of Nonviolent Action from the Washington, D.C.-based International Center on Nonviolent Conflict.
Before the financial crisis hit, Americans were pretty sure that the globe was warming, and that humans were causing it, and that it was kind of a big deal. As the economy slumped, Americans decided that climate change wasn’t actually happening—and even if it was, it wasn’t our fault. And now, after a flurry of wild weather—deadly tornados, floods, droughts, an uncommonly mild winter, and recent heat waves—U.S. residents are back to believing that global warming is real. But we’re still hesitant to take the blame.
The combination of melting sea ice and global atmospheric warming are contributing to the high rate of warming in the Arctic, where temperatures are increasing up to four times faster than the global average, a new study has shown.
Climate change means not only that we will see higher temperatures, writes Eugene Robinson, but that there will be more extreme weather events like the one that is suffocating the Eastern Seaboard. Welcome to the rest of our lives.
