Charting Irreversible Climate Change with Jason-3

As humans drive Earth's climate into a new regime, it is critical to keep our fingers on the pulse of the planet. Sea level rise is both a stark reminder of our impact on the climate and its impact on us. The oceans capture over 90 percent of the heat trapped by greenhouse gases, expanding as they warm. They also collect water from melting glaciers and ice sheets, making sea level rise a doubly important indicator of global warming. Without adaptation, a 2-meter rise would displace 187 million people worldwide. Sea level will continue to rise, but how fast? Like its predecessors, Jason-3 will serve as our eyes on sea level rise. Measuring global sea level once every 10 days, it will chart out the global rise of the oceans--a rise that is unlikely to subside or reverse for generations. But Jason-3 will be more than a sentinel of climate change. It will also measure the tilt of the ocean surface providing oceanographers with information about ocean currents, measure wind and waves helping forecasters predict marine weather, and even find local warm spots that can intensify hurricanes.

Scientist Explains Climate Change Using Maps | WIRED

A new interactive map from researchers at the University of Maryland shows how cities might be transformed by climate change. WIRED's Matt Simon talks with environmental scientist Matt Fitzpatrick about the map and why San Francisco could feel like Los Angeles by 2080.

Climate Change NOW

The information presented in this video comes from the Fourth National Climate Assessment, published in 2018 by the US Global Change Research Program administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Climate change is one of the most intensively studied phenomena in the world today. This video offers a brief summary of the direction of Earth's climate today. Researchers have documented changes in a range of areas, including land, atmospheric and ocean temperatures, glacial melting, shrinking sea ice, rising sea levels, ocean acidification, increased water vapor and more. It's hard, given what we know and what many people around the world have experienced, that climate change is already a distressing reality.

New Study Claims Earth Environmentally on Irreversible Path

DAILY DOSE | With several recent cases of extreme weather and fires, is Earth headed for runaway global warming? A new study claims that that is the case. Tel Aviv University Professor Colin Price analyzes.

Feeling the Heat: The Biology of Ocean Warming

0:13 - Introduction: Harry Helling
2:00 - Main Presentation: Ron Burton
49:26 - Audience Questions

Earth’s changing climate provides a natural laboratory for examining how organisms evolve adaptations to environmental extremes. As climate change accelerates, an obvious question arises: can evolution keep up with rapid change or are most species likely to go extinct as temperatures rise? Join Scripps Oceanography biologist Ron Burton as he describes the cutting-edge genetic tools he uses to understand how populations of tidepool animals cope with rapid temperature changes and how evolution has shaped those responses across the geographic range of each species.

Imagine that aliens landed and gifted us a clean, limitless energy source. And instead of killing each other over this technology, we decided to immediately transform the world into a carbon-free society. This wonderous source would power our homes, industries, cars and planes, and humanity’s annual rate of carbon pollution would almost instantly fall to zero. So if we kicked our carbon addiction tomorrow, what would that mean for global warming?

Climate Change is Here. Now What?

Berkeley Lab Scientist, Bill Collins, discusses what we know about climate change, how we know it, and what we can do about it. Collins serves as the director for the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Berkeley Lab. He is also the director of the Climate Readiness Institute, a multi-campus initiative to prepare the Bay Area for climate change. Recorded on 03/24/2016. [6/2016] [Show ID: 30892]

Burnout: The Toll of Studying Climate Change

Studying climate change can take its emotional toll. Some scientists and activists have experienced grief, depression, and anxiety. Some have received death threats. The Agenda looks beyond the science to the psychological strain climate change can have on those that know it best.
