Scientists Warn of Rising Oceans From Polar Melt

Scientists Warn of Rising Oceans From Polar Melt | Recycling and conservation programs in other countries | Scoop.it
The depletion of large parts of the ice sheet in West Antarctica is almost certainly unstoppable, with global warming accelerating the disintegration, two groups of scientists reported Monday.

Global warming poses threat to Southwest water supply

Global warming poses threat to Southwest water supply | Recycling and conservation programs in other countries | Scoop.it
Global warming is putting new pressures on the water supplies of the Southwest. Scientists say climate change is starting to compound the problems of a water system that is already at its limits.
Maura Boodry's insight:

This article is about how climate change is affecting the water supply. I will use this article in my final research paper by incorporating this information into my paper to inform my readers on the water supply crisis and climate change effects on the United States.

Greenland had an ice sheet 400,000 years ago – then lost it when Earth was only a little warmer than it is today. Get ready for a repeat performance
Maura Boodry's insight:

This article is about the crisis with the Ice sheets and how they may be passed a point of no return. I will use information from this article in my final research project to inform people on the ice sheets issue.

Global Warming : Feature Articles

Global Warming : Feature Articles | Recycling and conservation programs in other countries | Scoop.it
Global warming is happening now, and scientists are confident that greenhouse gases are responsible. To understand what this means for humanity, it is necessary to understand what global warming is, how scientists know it's happening, and how they predict future climate.
Maura Boodry's insight:

This article is from the offical NASA website and is about global warming, climate change and the green house effect. I will be using this article in my final research paper for the graphs that it possess on climate change over the last 120 years. Also this article has a great description of what global warming is.

Climate Change and Global Warming Introduction — Global Issues

Climate Change and Global Warming Introduction — Global Issues | Recycling and conservation programs in other countries | Scoop.it
This page introduces what climate change is, the potential impacts and resistance to the otherwise accepted understanding that it is man-made climate change.
Maura Boodry's insight:

This article is more about global warming issues and climate change. I will incorporate this article into my final research paper by informing by readers on more of what global warming is from this articles perceptive and the effects that climate change has on the earth, particularly in the U.S.

Climate change could stop fish finding their friends

Climate change could stop fish finding their friends | Recycling and conservation programs in other countries | Scoop.it
Like humans, fish prefer to group with individuals with whom they are familiar, rather than strangers. This gives numerous benefits including higher growth and survival rates, greater defense against predators and faster social learning. However, high carbon dioxide levels, such as those anticipated by climate change models, may hinder the ability of fish to recognize one another and form groups with familiar individuals.
Maura Boodry's insight:

This article is from science daily, informing their readers on the effects that climate change has with fish. I will use this article in my final research project to inform my readers on the effects that CO2 has on fish and how is may be affected the way they interact with one another.

Atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gas, which helps drive global warming, haven’t been this high in somewhere between 800,000 and 15 million years
Maura Boodry's insight:

This article is from the scientific america website and is about more information on climate change and global warming and informs you on the highness of Atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gas that drive global warming. I will use this article for it's information on greenhouse gases and the climate change over the past years and for the information on the CO2 levels.
