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.

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?

Climeworks - A Technology to Reverse Climate Change

Act now and start removing emissions:

We are on a mission to remove 1% of global CO2 emissions by 2025.

In order stop climate change from reaching dangerous levels, it is necessary to reduce worldwide emissions whilst at the same time removing CO2 out of the atmosphere. For the past decade we have been developing and deploying our Direct Air Capture technology all around the world.

We will soon be offering Carbon Dioxide Removal to the public for the first time ever. Stay informed about the launch and the scale-up of our Iceland plant by joining the community:

Can super reefs survive climate change?

Climate change is the single greatest threat to coral reefs. Yet in the race to beat the odds, some reefs are already winning. Their incredible corals can survive extreme heat, even as others bleach and die. They are Super Reefs, and they could secure the future for all corals.

But even Super Reefs are vulnerable to damage and pollution. How can we ensure they survive to pass their resistant genes to future generations? And how can we share their remarkable stories?

We propose to harness the infrastructure and expertise of large public aquariums (LPAs) across the U.S. to establish a nationwide network of Super Coral Zoos, each with three key components: a public exhibit of living Super Corals; a behind-the-scenes live bank to propagate diverse Super Coral species, and a long-term frozen repository of Super Coral DNA to preserve their genomes for future repopulation efforts.

Many U.S. LPA’s already have popular coral reef exhibits and an enthusiastic public following. With our successful proof-of-concept, we will enlist LPAs across the U.S., catalyzing a nationwide collaborative network of Super Coral Zoos. Working together, we will draw America’s attention to the fight for survival of the world’s strongest corals, and gain public support for our efforts to protect them. At the same time, we will guarantee long-term, land-based protections for Super Corals.

The technology to undertake such an endeavor did not exist five years ago. Today, we have the tools to guarantee a healthy future for coral reefs and all who value and depend on them.
