NASA's Top Climate Scientist: U.S. South Could Become Uninhabitable

Well, it doesn’t come as a huge surprise to see this statement from NASA’s James Hansen, perhaps the top climate scientist in the world. But it’s a statement we seem to keep ignoring. Here’s the statement I’m referring to:

β€œClimate change β€” human-made global warming β€” is happening. It is already having noticeable impacts…. If we stay on with business as usual, the southern U.S. will become almost uninhabitable.”

What Does the U.S. Climate Change Movement Need to Pass Climate Legislation?

Joe Romm of Climate Progress recently had an interesting post on an email from Environmental Defense Fund President Fred Krupp on β€œhow we begin to rebuild public support for climate action and the political will to pass climate legislation.”

I decided to chime in after reading the post with my own 2 cents. Thought I’d share that here.

Huge Environmental Organizations Merge (350.org & 1Sky) — My Thoughts

If you haven’t heard the news yet, two huge environmental organizations just decided to merge — 350.org, which organized what was reportedly the biggest day of global action in October (the 10/10/10 day of global action), and 1Sky, a great organization that has inspired many and accomplished much in recent years.

To be honest, they were already using the same colors, so why not merge?…

But, seriously, this is big news and I’m sure a lot of people are wondering if it’s for better or worse…
