    SCEPTICS VS. SCIENCE
    Today Is Monday, March 18, 2019, 8:52 am.


    NASA and the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) - "The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years..." ~ NASA.gov [NASA Evidence | Click Here For Weekly CO2 Levels]

    Latest CO2 Readings - Scripps Institute
    keelingcurve.ucsd.edu
    Rising CO2 levels can herald increasing global temperatures and the human inability to significantly limit carbon emissions. This will likely spur extreme weather patterns including drought, catastrophic storms, flooding, sea-level rise and changing ecosystems leading to inconsistent food production and widespread extinction of native species. Life as generally expected may dramatically alter.

      3-5°C temperature rise is now ‘locked-in’ for the Arctic

      “Even if the world were to cut emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, winter temperatures in the Arctic would rise 3-5°C by 2050 and 5-9°C by 2080, devastating the region and unleashing sea level rises worldwide, finds a new report by UN Environment.

      Meanwhile, rapidly thawing permafrost could even accelerate climate change further and derail efforts to meet the Paris Agreement’s long-term goal of limiting the rise in global temperature to 2°C, warns Global Linkages – A graphic look at the changing Arctic.”

    NASA: Climate Change Is Real

    "Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system
    is unequivocal..."

    If Climate Change Is Real, What Does This Mean?

    Climate scientist Kathryn Hayhoe offers a simple yet comprehensive TEDx presentation on whether climate change is real, whether it's simply a natural phenomenon, and what it means to all of us if it continues to grows in intensity and severity.

    SCARED SCIENTISTS By Nick Bower

    "My work on the potential impacts of climate change on species and ecosystems has made it clear that the human species is now threatened..." ~ Dr. Lesley Hughes

    Years of Living Dangerously
    Are you having difficulty with your significant other understanding climate change and the associated effects of GHGs? Do you feel that you aren't getting your message across in a manner that stresses that climate change is affecting us now? This series premiere demonstrates how folks are being affected by job losses, how people are entering civil wars, how elephants are being poisoned, and goes into explaining WHY these things are happening.

    If warmings of 10 C were really to occur in next three centuries, the area of land likely rendered uninhabitable by heat stress would dwarf that affected by rising sea level. Heat stress thus deserves more attention as a climate-change impact. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygSKOQCxVC0&sns=tw

    Stephen Schneider: Is the Science "Settled"?
    Informative breakdown of how difficult climate science is to understand and predict.(February 4, 2010) Stephen Schneider, (RIP) professor of biology at Stanford and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, unpacks the political and scientific debates surrounding climate change.
    Some topics covered.
    1.) The process of how data is compiled and published. (peer review process)
    2.) How data is misunderstood and misrepresented by deniers by selective inattention to inconvenient components of a data set.
    3.) Principles of decision analysis to elements of understanding how a system works before you have all the data.
    4.) Unpredictable tipping points.

    Jeremy Jackson: Ocean Apocalypse
    Jeremy Jackson is Senior Scientist Emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution and Professor of Oceanography Emeritus at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He studies human impacts on the oceans and the ecology and paleoecology of tropical and subtropical marine ecosystems. Jackson is author of more than 150 scientific publications and eight books. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Jackson has received numerous prizes and awards including most recently the Peterson Medal from Harvard University, the Paleontological Medal, the BBVA International Prize in Ecology and Conservation, and the Society for Conservation Biology LaRoe Award for Outstanding Contributions to Conservation Biology. Jackson's work on historical overfishing and the collapse of coastal ecosystems was chosen by Discover magazine as the outstanding scientific achievement of 2001. Island Press just published his latest book, Shifting Baselines: The Past and Future of Ocean Fisheries, in August 2011.
