Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

A team of scientists from Harvard University and the company Carbon Engineering announced on Thursday that they have found a method to cheaply and directly pull carbon-dioxide pollution out of the atmosphere. If their technique is successfully implemented at scale, it could transform how humanity thinks about the problem of climate change. It could give … Continue reading Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

Climate Change is Helping Crank Up The Temperatures of California’s Heat Waves – Bettina Boxall

California suffered through its hottest July on record, while August has pushed sea-surface temperatures off the San Diego coast to all-time highs. Are these punishing summer heat waves the consequences of global warming or the result of familiar weather patterns? The answer, scientists say, is both.   Climate change is amplifying natural variations in the … Continue reading Climate Change is Helping Crank Up The Temperatures of California’s Heat Waves – Bettina Boxall

Science Alone Won’t Save the Earth People Have to Do That – Erle C. Ellis

This planet is in crisis. The safe limits within which human societies can be sustained, the earth’s “planetary boundaries,” are being exceeded, a path leading inevitably toward collapse. The experts have spoken. Only if humanity heeds the science, reverses course and lives within earth’s natural limits can disaster be avoided. Or maybe you believe the … Continue reading Science Alone Won’t Save the Earth People Have to Do That – Erle C. Ellis

Red Tide Bloom Reaches Southern Pinellas Co. By Trevor Pettiford

Florida Fish and Wildlife said Wednesday that two samples collected showed background-to-low concentrations of the red tide organism. While the low level of algae is not currently affecting anglers in the area, they are still worried of the possibilities. "Just being around the water all my life, I've seen red tide in here before, but … Continue reading Red Tide Bloom Reaches Southern Pinellas Co. By Trevor Pettiford

Let’s All Take a Breath and Read That ‘Hothouse Earth’ Paper – Maddie Stone

If the past year of floods, fires, heat waves, and droughts are any indicator, climate change is going to be rough. But in case you weren’t already alarmed, a team of prominent climate scientists has penned a paper warning that just two degrees Celsius of human-caused warming could send us spiraling toward a “hothouse Earth”—one … Continue reading Let’s All Take a Breath and Read That ‘Hothouse Earth’ Paper – Maddie Stone

When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley

Dramatic weather events happened this past week in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. There were wildfires in Greece, Scandinavia, and the Western U.S. Flooding followed record rainfalls in the Northeast. And dangerous heat waves settled over the Southwest, Japan, and the U.K. If it continues like this, 2018 could end up being one of … Continue reading When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley

Adding Up the Cost of Climate Change in Lost Lives – Greg Ip

An exhaustive new study focusing only on heat-related damage predicts that by 2099, even with economic growth and adaptation, 1.5 million more people world-wide will die each year because of increased temperatures. PIRatE Lab's insight: Not surprisingly, wealthier places fare better: in Houston, each additional day averaging 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit), relative to a … Continue reading Adding Up the Cost of Climate Change in Lost Lives – Greg Ip
