15,000 Scientists Suggest 13 Ways To Mitigate Climate Change

November 16th, 2017 | by Stephen Hanley

The Alliance of World Scientists has issued what it calls a "Second Warming" about the danger to the survival of the human species if climate change is not addressed soon. Here are the thirteen steps the more than 15,000 signatories to that warning recommend


Floods in Seoul Displace over 11,000 & Kill Dozens; Floods in Bangladesh Displace over 10,000

July 29th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Floods, one of the hallmark natural disasters resulting in greater occurrence and strength from climate change, are tearing about homes, cities, and people in Bangladesh and Seoul, South Korea this week. Seoul has seen the heaviest rains in July since 1907 now. At least 59 people are dead and 10 missing, according to the latest reports. About 10,000 people from about 4,800 homes have been left homeless


South Korea Hit with Deadly Landslides (from Heavy Rains)

July 27th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

South Korea just got nailed with some heavy rain that has triggered landslides in and flooding in and near its large capital city, Seoul. 32 have been confirmed dead so far. (Whatever you do, don't consider that is has anything to do with climate change, even though this is exactly the sort of catastrophe climate scientists have predicted will become more and more common.)


Arizona Dust Storms Follow Tremendous Arizona Fires {Pictures}

The United States is getting its share of "natural" disasters this year, and the Southwest U.S. especially. Unprecedented drought, wildfires, and now dust storms. Just what the climate scientists have predicted and been warning us about for years. (Of course, expected to get much worse though if we don't change course soon.)

June 28th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

11 veteran U.S. and Canadian scientists and environmentalists (Maude Barlow, Wendell Berry, Tom Goldtooth, Danny Glover, James Hansen, Wes Jackson, Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, George Poitras, David Suzuki, and Gus Speth) have jointly called for non-violent disobedience in front of our grand White House this summer to try to stop the proposed Keystone XL pipeline


Extremely Extreme Weather in 2010.. Perhaps Most Extreme on Record

June 25th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Dr. Jeff Masters, a world-leading meteorologist, just finished a compilation of what he considered 2010's top 20 extreme weather events. All in all, he considers 2010 to be the most extreme year for weather since records began and, unfortunately, with a good understanding of climate change, he hints at what we could be in for if we don't turn things around quickly


Heat Records: Nearly 3,000 Set in U.S. This Week (Extreme Heat Kills at Least 8)

June 10th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Think it's hot? Well, it is! Cities all across the U.S. have shattered heat records this week. (Don't forget, though, don't try to connect them to climate change or global warming!) Of course, its worth knowing, the hottest summers these days will be comparable to the coolest summers in 2050 if we don't do something about climate change FAST. "The fossil-fueled heat wave blazing across the United States east of the Rockies has killed at least eight people, knocked out power from Detroit to Connecticut, and set 1,859 high-temperature and 993 high-minimum-temperature records this week."


Are Tornadoes & Climate Change Linked?

May 24th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

This is a question that has definitely popped into my mind. And, if you are at all familiar with the fact that climate change is not just about sea levels or heat but is also causing (and going to cause more) much more extreme weather or "global weirding" as some put it, you are probably curious as well
