New Climate Maps

In the case of extreme warming (represented as RCP 8.5), the niche moves sharply toward Canada, leaving much of the lower half of the U.S. too hot or dry for the type of climate humans historically have lived in. Both scenarios suggest massive upheavals in where Americans currently live and grow food. Spread the word

Ecological Threat Register 2020

“Ecological threats and climate change pose serious challenges to global peacefulness. Over the next 30 years lack of access to food and water will only increase without urgent global cooperation. In the absence of action civil unrest, riots and conflict will most likely increase. COVID-19 is already exposing gaps in the global food chain”. Spread […]

Water and Adaptation to Climate Change

Consequences for developing countries Much of the effort invested so far in adaptation to climate change in higher income countries has been aimed at improving the knowledge base as a prelude to action. This has involved developing modeling capacity, building databases and documenting baseline conditions, monitoring conditions and changes through reporting requirements on public agencies […]

Responding to Climate Change

NASA is a world leader in climate studies and Earth science. While its role is not to set climate policy or prescribe particular responses or solutions to climate change, its purview does include providing the robust scientific data needed to understand climate change. NASA then makes this information available to the global community – the […]

Sweetgrass is a teacher of healing, a symbol of kindness and compassion

“There she was – Sweetgrass – growing in one of the last places I might ever have expected. Tentatively sending out rhizomes through the sludge [talking about Onondaga watershed poisoned by methilated mercury and other toxic waste from the nearby industrial activities], slender tillers marching bravely away, sweetgrass is a teacher of healing, a symbol […]

Why COVID-19 will end up harming the environment

Even though the air has been cleaner as a result of the global lockdowns, a more polluted future has been brewing while we weren’t looking. In early April, with shutdowns widespread, daily global carbon emissions were down by 17 percent compared to last year. But as of June 11, new data show that they are […]

Warming stripe – visual representations of the change in temperature

These ‘warming stripe’ graphics are visual representations of the change in temperature as measured in each country over the past 100+ years. Each stripe represents the temperature in that country averaged over a year. For most countries, the stripes start in the year 1901 and finish in 2019. For the ocean basins and for several […]
