Who is the IPCC? This below is their most recent report. Everyone should take a look at this I think.
Top climate scientist James Hansen tells the story of his involvement in the science of and debate over global climate change. In doing so he outlines the overwhelming evidence that change is happening and why that makes him…
A good solid scientific talk by a MIT climate science professor about climate change explaining how we know what is happening and what exactly is happening. I learned quite a few things. For one I learned how so little change in carbon dioxide can have such a large climate change effect, and how this has been known for about 100 years already!
Professor Kerry Emanuel has been known for his “Show me the data!” approach to climate science. In this talk, he will present a long term,…
I think this talk presents a wealth of information about global warming and I expect to watch it again to better understand the finer points.
Professor Schneider clearly has an impressive knowledge of this subject.
His talk covers a wide array of questions relating to the possible global warming outcomes, including possible impending doom on earth, how possible is this, what are the possible time frames, what are global predictions based on, and how certain are scientists of various possible outcomes.
(February 4, 2010) Stephen Schneider, professor of biology at Stanford and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, unpacks the political…
If you are at all skeptical about the arguments for or against global warming, then this talk is an important talk to listen to I think.
Dr Milne strikes me as very bright and clear headed in dissecting the evidence, arguments, politics, and beliefs around this most important issue for humanity to get it right about.
Dr Richard Milne, School of Biological Sciences, presents Critical Thinking on Climate Change:…
Astronauts have a unique perspective on our planet and now they’ve shared it with climate negotiators.
A new study, “Comparing climate projections to observations up to 2011,” confirms that climate change is happening as fast — and in some cases faster — than climate models had projected. …
Another very good easy to understand explanation of climate change principles and effects from a top level climate scientist. Tip: Skip the ad (after 5 seconds) and then slide the cursor past the introduction to 4:10 to start.
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Distinguished Professor Emeritus Richard Somerville, a world-renowned climate scientist and author of “The Forgiving Air:…
The 20th Century has been like no other. With human population jumping from 1.6 to 6 billion between 1900 and 2000, there have been more people vulnerable to climate change than ever before. Moreover, during this same period, carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere have risen from 290 parts per million (ppm) to 369 ppm, …
The longest — and probably largest
— proof of our current climate catastrophe
ever caught on camera.
The enormity of this video didn’t hit me at first.
I watched this again the other day and now it really hits me much harder.
This is about huge amounts of ice melting.
This video is to promote general awareness of the science of climate change. It features David Roberts of Grist, and short clips from around the web.…
“Eminent Australian scientist Professor Frank Fenner, who helped to wipe out smallpox, predicts humans will probably be extinct within 100 years, because of overpopulation, environmental destruction and climate change.
Fenner, who is emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, said homo sapiens will not be able to survive the population explosion and “unbridled consumption,” and will become extinct, perhaps within a century, along with many other species. …”
“Schwarzenegger made it to office, but he couldn’t get his advisers to agree on a solar policy. … nothing budged. Schwarzenegger grew frustrated. At one point he convened his staff in the Ronald Reagan conference room, where he kept his Conan the Barbarian sword. When his advisers again began to bicker over details, Schwarzenegger’s face turned red and veins bulged from his neck. He pounded his fist on the long wood table and bellowed, “Don’t you understand? I want to get this fucking thing done.
California decreased its greenhouse gas emissions by 5.5 percent while increasing its gross domestic product by 17 percent.

“The only reason I’m optimistic about this problem is because of innovation.”

An American economic and social theorist, writer, public speaker, political advisor, and activist. Rifkin is the author of 20 books about the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment.
Between 2007 and 2011, the Presidential Climate Action Project (PCAP) engaged hundreds of thought leaders to produce scores of recommendations on how the President of the United States could improve the nation’s climate and energy security.
Now with the help of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, PCAP has been revived for the election season.
As before, we are engaging some of America’s most distinguished thought leaders. As before, we will emphasize policies and programs the President can implement with his existing executive authorities and without further action by Congress.
I’m re-reading the book that made the biggest impact on me in the past 20 years, getting to the core of what is wrong with the human race, me included.
There is no longer sufficient time to rely on the normal pace of cultural evolution to deal with today’s dilemmas…
Just to provide some balance, if you want to see some of the climate change deniers in action you can look at this to see how they lay out their arguments. The discussion is hosted at the Heritage Foundation a prominent right wing political organization. Here is a list of the speakers (from left to right):
“Climate Change Reconsidered II: Physical Science” — produced by a team of 40 scientists — is the…”
