Calls to action

Essays and research supporting the idea that global warming poses a clear threat to humanity, that it is largely caused by human activity, and that solutions to the problems of climate change lie within human reach.

A climate-change skeptic who has relied on grants from fossil-fuel energy interests apparently failed to disclose financial conflicts of interest in a newly released paper... continue »

Winters may be getting shorter, but watch out when it does snow: climate change is super-charging storms like the blizzard engulfing the American northeast... continue »

After the November 2014 joint US-China announcement on climate change, all eyes turned towards India. What would India do? Would it sign a similar agreement... continue »

We've recorded our first days of 2015 with average carbon dioxide levels above 400 parts per million, potentially leading to many months in a row above this threshold... continue »

A crucial shipping route for commodities in the US, the Mississippi River faces climate-related risks that also raise important national security issues... continue »

It's a dangerous trajectory that the US is stoking with record exports of dirty fuels, even as it reduces the pollution responsible for global warming at home... continue »

Dissenting voices

Essays and research challenging the view that the world warming that began around 1880 is caused by human activity, that it poses a serious threat, or that the vagaries of earths climate are within human control.

Unless you live on the moon you've probably heard lots of feverish hype attributed to NASA about 2014 being the "hottest year" ever. The highly publicized claim is bogus... continue »
