Comments Off on NASA is almost certain 2016 will be the hottest year in recorded history

There are over two months left in the year, but that hasn’t stopped NASA from suggesting that 2016 will be the hottest on record . The planet has been on a heat streak for some time and the latest projections show that this September will the hottest in 136 years of record keeping – and it’s pretty safe to say that the entire year will follow suit. Gavin Schmidt, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), made a 99 percent certain prediction that 2016 would top the charts all the way back in May, and the newest GISS data shows he was right on track. Last month was .91 degrees Celsius above the baseline period average, coming in a .004 degree hair ahead of September, 2014. This individual month’s data, when added to the numbers recorded for the entire year, paint a fiery picture for climate change ‘s effect on the entirety of 2016. Related: It’s official: 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history There may be a light at the end of the tunnel, as some do not believe 2017 will continue the trend. Jeremy Shakun, climate scientist from Boston College, told Gizmodo he believes the recent El Niño phenomenon contributed to higher temperatures this year and that next year will not be so dire. “Nonetheless,” he said, “the important thing is the long-term warming trend.” If we can continue racing to meet the Paris climate agreement ’s goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, we might have a fighting chance to stop the trend from continuing.

Comments Off on This massive wind-powered skyscraper would cool the entire planet

Paolo Venturella Architecture just unveiled plans for a fantastical Global Cooling Skyscraper that’s designed to fight global warming by cooling the entire planet.

Elon Musk’s idea for powering the entire U.S. with solar energy holds a lot of water

Comments Off on Elon Musk’s idea for powering the entire U.S. with solar energy holds a lot of water

Elon Musk is many things: a forward-thinking technology buff, a serially successful businessman, and even a mediocre actor . He spends a lot of time thinking about the world’s big problems and coming up with possible solutions, and it’s probably high time we all start listening to what he has to say. Recently, Musk offered his take on powering the entire United States with solar power , and the more his suggestion is analyzed, the more sense it makes. Essentially, he proposes that the whole country could be powered by “a little corner of Nevada or Utah” and that, if government leaders cooperated and invested in infrastructure, it could happen in as little as 15 years. Is it really possible? Read the rest of Elon Musk’s idea for powering the entire U.S. with solar energy holds a lot of water
