Ten Simple Ways to Act on Climate Change

Posted on February 9, 2020 at 1:04 PM Comments comments (0)
 

******
In a report published in September 2018, the world’s leading climate scientists made their starkest warning so far: our current actions are not enough for us to meet our target of 1.5C of warming. We need to do more.

It’s settled science that climate change is real, and we’re starting to see some of the ways that it affects us. It increases the likelihood of flooding in Miami and elsewhere, threatens the millions of people living along the Brahmaputra River in north-eastern India and disrupts the sex life of plants and animals.

So we don’t need to ask whether climate change is happening – or whether humans are causing it. Instead, we need to ask: “what can we do?”...

The case for optimism on climate change

Posted on February 29, 2016 at 9:34 PM Comments comments (0)





***********
Al Gore has three questions about climate change and our future. First: Do we have to change? Each day, global-warming pollution traps as much heat energy as would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-class atomic bombs. This trapped heat is leading to stronger storms and more extreme floods, he says: "Every night on the TV news now is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation." Second question: Can we change? We've already started. So then, the big question: Will we change? In this challenging, inspiring talk, Gore says yes. "When any great moral challenge is ultimately resolved into a binary choice between what is right and what is wrong, the outcome is foreordained because of who we are as human beings," he says. "That is why we're going to win this."

This Is How Much Garbage We’ve Left in Orbit Around Earth

Posted on January 2, 2016 at 2:38 PM Comments comments (1)





********
If you think there's a lot of trash on Earth, you should see what we've left in space: nearly 20,000 pieces of small debris from a half-century of space missions, left to float aimlessly in orbit.

Known to scientists as space debris, the collection of garbage is comprised of everything from entire derelict satellites to small pieces of junk created by in-orbit collisions...

What I learned from spending 31 days underwater

*****
In 1963, Jacques Cousteau lived for 30 days in an underwater laboratory positioned on the floor of the Red Sea, and set a world record in the process. This summer, his grandson Fabien Cousteau broke that record. Cousteau the younger lived for 31 days aboard the Aquarius, an underwater research laboratory nine miles off the coast of Florida. In a charming talk he brings his wondrous adventure to life.

The state of the climate — and what we might do about it

Posted on September 30, 2014 at 11:42 PM Comments comments (0)





******
How can we begin to address the global, insidious problem of climate change — a problem that’s too big for any one country to solve? Economist Nicholas Stern lays out a plan, presented to the UN’s Climate Summit in 2014, showing how the world’s countries can work together on climate. It’s a big vision for cooperation, with a payoff that goes far beyond averting disaster. He asks: How can we use this crisis to spur better lives for all?
