Climate Disaster Unfolding From Space

Watch Our Planet's Impending Climate Disaster Unfold From Space

The facts are grim. By 2050, if humans keep doing what we’re doing now, the global temperature will rise more than two degrees Celsius above what it’s been for most of human history. By 2100, it might even climb four degrees. The IPCC report, and this video, confirm what we’ve been hearing everywhere: Arctic sea ice is disappearing, sea levels are rising, storms are getting crazier, and we don’t even know the extent of everything else that will change.

Google Earth Outreach
The British Government launched with Google Earth Outreach, and in collaboration with the Met Office Hadley Centre and the British Antarctic Survey, new layers in Google Earth that utilize geographical information to show how climate change will affect our planet and its people.
The scientists of the British Antarctic Survey have developed a layer which details how they monitor and measure the effects of climate change in Antarctica, featuring stunning images that show the retreat of the ice from this environmentally-sensitive continent.

The World is Flat 3.0 (video 40min)

The World is Flat 3.0
“If we don’t find a cleaner, more non-emitting way to power their dreams, we’re going to burn up, choke up, heat up and smoke up this planet so much faster than even Al Gore predicts.”
Friedman scoffs at those who claim “a green revolution is going on,” calling it instead a green party, entailing no real sacrifice or pain. He says the only hope will be a “disruptive breakthrough” that brings a completely different mix of standards and taxes.” Friedman’s new mantra is, “Change your leaders, not your light bulbs.”
Without new leaders to rewrite our laws and trigger the innovations, “we are cooked.”
Green is the new red, white and blue

Earths Vegetation, Study
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/06/0605_030605_climatechange.html
Climate Change Upped Earth's Vegetation, Study Finds
For most of the world's plant life, the effect of the pace of climate change over the past two decades has been productive, according to an analysis of climate and satellite data collected between 1982 and 1999.
The research, reported in the June 6 issue of Science, addresses the question of how global vegetation has responded to changes in precipitation, temperature, and cloud cover patterns. Such climate factors determine how vegetation grows.

Climate Challenge Game at the BBC
A game where you are president of the European Nations. You must tackle climate change and stay popular enough with the voters to remain in office.
The producers' primary goal was to make a fun, challenging game. At times it was necessary to strike a compromise between strict scientific accuracy and playability. For this reason, Climate Challenge should not be taken as a serious climate change prediction.

Climate change : Teaching and Learning Scotland

Climate change : Teaching and Learning Scotland
Our world is warming faster than at any time in the last 10,000 years and human activity is to blame. In Scotland, 2006 was the warmest year on record. Every day millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases are emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere, driving global warming.
The actions that you take have an impact. You can make a difference.
What happens in the next few years is crucial. If we keep polluting and acting like nothing is wrong then dangerous climate change is inevitable. If we take action to tackle global warming, lower our carbon footprint, and tell people about climate change and what they can do to fight it, then we can reduce our impact on Planet Earth.

Climate Change: A guide to the information and disinformation by Shirl Kennedy, Senior Editor
What we have here is basically a nicely organized collection of annotated links to (mostly) online resources, from basic science to government agencies and organizations, to research institutions, environmental groups and more. Says Tompkins — in his outstanding and highly recommended daily newsletter, Al’s Morning Meeting — “I especially appreciate the list of 50 ‘really serious scientist sources on climate (who would probably be glad to talk to a journalist).’ The list includes phone numbers and e-mails for many of the sources.
What a great service for journalism.” And for anyone else doing research on this issue who would benefit from two-way communication with a vetted source.

Climate Change page at Wikipedia
Climate change refers to the variation in the Earth's global climate or in regional climates over time. It describes changes in the variability or average state of the atmosphere over time scales ranging from decades to millions of years.
These changes can be caused by processes internal to the Earth, external forces (e.g. variations in sunlight intensity) or, more recently, human activities.
