Comments Off on Are we doing enough to encourage next-generation sustainability pros?

Last November, on the eve of the COP 21 climate talks in Paris, a group of environmental activists sued the U.S. government for violating their constitutional rights by continuing to promote the development and use of fossil fuels. Just one of them, famed climatologist James Hansen, was above the age of 20.

Comments Off on Is the Paris climate accord really a “major leap for mankind”?

World leaders are calling the Paris climate agreement a “turning point” in the fight against the effects of climate change. The deal, which is the result of years of meetings and negotiations between leaders from nearly 200 countries, indeed marks a landmark shift in global climate change policies. After two weeks of intense compromise, the final draft of the accord solidifies universal goals in a number of areas including curbing greenhouse gas emissions, setting long term goals for clean energy, ramping up climate commitments, and even a clause to help financially support developing nations that are suffering from the worst effects of global warming. In this follow-up to  our preliminary coverage  of the final deal, we’ll look more closely at the terms of the agreement and what the deal will mean for the world in the coming years.

Comments Off on Terrifying new report by James Hansen and leading climate scientists shows coastal cities will soon be uninhabitable

A new study penned by 17 of the world’s top climate change experts suggests rates of glacial melt have been drastically underestimated and, with this new information, sea levels are projected to rise as much as 10 feet within the next 50 years. This would have an undeniable and irreversible effect on coastal cities like New York and Miami, where large numbers of people reside in the very areas that could be underwater within just a few decades.

Comments Off on CO2 Levels Pass 400 Parts Per Million for First Time in Human History

Photo via Shutterstock We broke a record this week — but not the good kind. On Thursday, scientists at a research facility on top of the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii reported that average daily levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere surpassed 400 parts per million for the first time. As the New York Times notes , CO2 levels haven’t been this high for at least 3 million years, meaning that we are likely to see changes to the climate never experienced by humans before. The 400 PPM milestone is symbolic, but it’s a reminder of how global efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions are failing.
