How Bringing Back The Great Whale Can Limit Climate Change (VIDEO)

The oceans are huge carbon sinks for the world. Fish and whales comprise only a tiny part of their overall biomass. Nevertheless, studies have shown that fishing and whaling by humans have altered the ocean’s carbon storage and sequestration capabilities by causing a change in the food chain, or a trophic cascade. As naturalist and […]

What Causes Global Warming?

Droughts, lengthy hot spells, heavy downpours, floods, and other extreme weather events are occurring more frequently and intensely every year. Around the world, research teams are analyzing these trends, noting the changes in temperature, rainfall, ice mass, sea level, and many other variables recorded by weather measuring devices. The trends are undeniable: the Earth is

Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions Fall in 2009 โ€“ Past Decade Still Sees Rapid Emissions Growth

The latest EPI release is on carbon emissions trends and the potential results. by Amy Heinzerling In 2009, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in Chinaโ€”the worldโ€™s leading emitterโ€”grew by nearly 9 percent. At the same time, emissions in most industrial countries dropped, bringing global CO2ย emissions from fossil fuel use down from a high of 8.5 billion

Dry Times for Western North America, Climate Trends Forecast

Researchers Overpeck and Udall cite a litany of troubling trends to support their prediction: “soaring temperatures, declining late-season snow pack, northward-shifted winter storm tracks, increasing precipitation intensity (note: not total rainfall), the worst drought since measurements began, steep declines in Colorado River reservoir storage, widespread vegetation mortality, and sharp increases in the frequency of large wildfires.”

Arctic May Be More Sensitive to Warming Than Expected

A new study led by the University of Colorado at Boulder suggests that the Arctic climate system may be more sensitive to greenhouse warming than first thought. The international study suggested that the current levels of Earthโ€™s atmospheric carbon dioxide could be high enough to cause significant and irreversible shifts in the various Arctic ecosystems.
