What's Really Warming the World? Climate deniers blame natural factors; NASA data proves otherwise

Instead, they talk about how the annual temperature departs from an average, or baseline. They call these departures "anomalies. " They do this because temperature anomalies are more consistent in an area than absolute temperatures are. For example, the absolute temperature atop the Empire State Building may be different by several degrees than the absolute temperature at New York’s LaGuardia Airport. But the differences from their own averages are likely to be about the same. Voices - Climate 25 - The Weather Channel. La ville, c’est nous.

Although earth’s climate has experienced natural cycles of warming and cooling over millions of years, the global warming of today is caused by human activity and is altering the atmosphere in ways never before seen by human beings. This has grave public health impacts, and our children will suffer the most. Alimenter le changement - Canada. Au cours des trois dernières années, le programme Alimenter le changement a aidé des organismes méritants dans l’ensemble du Canada à prendre des mesures positives afin d’améliorer notre environnement.

Alimenter le changement - Canada

Grâce à vous et à d’autres partisans du programme, 251 organismes se sont partagé en tout 6 millions de dollars sous forme de subventions. Depuis mai 2011, le nombre impressionnant de 15 732 429 votes ont été enregistrés pour appuyer des projets uniques et novateurs qui contribuent à améliorer le monde. Le programme Alimenter le changement est officiellement terminé, mais nous vous invitons à visiter le site pour découvrir nos six organismes vedettes et savoir comment ils ont utilisé leur subvention pour protéger la faune et la flore et restaurer l’environnement et le paysage au Canada.

Vous pouvez aussi consulter le site pour savoir quels sont les projets du cycle 6 qui ont reçu les subventions de 100 000 $, de 50 000 $ et de 25 000 $.

The New Climate Economy Report 2014. Climate Feedback. Public/world.lasso. NAPECA: NAPECA Community Grants. NAPECA Update: Montreal, 4 March 2014—The Council of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), composed of the highest-level environmental authorities from Canada, Mexico, and the United States, today awarded $1.2 million in grants under CEC’s North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action (NAPECA) program for 18 new projects that will support communities across North America in addressing environmental problems at the local level.

NAPECA: NAPECA Community Grants

The 18 projects were selected based on how significantly they were able to address community and North American environmental issues related to the CEC priorities for 2010–2015, their innovation and technical, methodological or scientific approaches, their replicability across the three countries, and their emphasis on producing clear and tangible results.

A living site, the BC Climate Action Toolkit will grow and change with users' needs and feedback.

BC Climate Action Toolkit

The toolkit's goal is to inspire action in BC's diverse local governments to rapidly advance deep emission reductions in corporate operations and community-wide activity. Through the Climate Action Charter and a wide range of actions on the ground, BC local governments have already taken action and the Toolkit provides an opportunity to benefit from lessons learned. It draws on a wealth of relevant, topical resources available to local BC governments. In assembling this Toolkit, the Green Communities Committee relied on the knowledge and experience of individuals and organizations across the province. The tools, plans, and guidance are the product of existing and new work by experts who have been working inside or with local government to advance sustainable energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

New York Already Has Twice The Average Warming & Sea Level Rise, More To Come.

The first statewide summary of the coming effects of climate change on New York State has been just released by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority , and things don't bode well for the region. In fact New York is set to experience disproportionate effects compared to other areas nearby. The NYSERDA reports notes that New York has already experienced warming about twice the global average over the past 40 years, with temperatures rising 2.4°F. An additional 1.5-3°F temperature rise is expected by 2020, with up to 9°F by 2080. As for sea level rise, due to the effect of currents and other factors, New York has received about 12" of sea level rise over the past century, 5" more than the global average.

By 2080, the New York coastline is likely to see 8-23" of sea level rise—up to 55" if melting in Greenland and West Antarctica accelerates.


Earth Gauge » About. Climate Change Likely Already Causing More Extreme Weather, IPCC Says. A draft report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change , obtained by the AP, says there's a 66% chance that climate change is already causing an increase in extreme weather . Though the report still says, rightly, that any specific weather event cannot be solely tied to climate change -- be it the totally unseasonable snowfall that hit the Northeast this past weekend, the devastating flooding in Thailand, etc. -- but that scientists now are 99% certain that climate change will cause more extreme heat waves, fewer extreme spells of cold weather, and more intense downpours. By mid-century, the scientists say, that heat waves could by 5°C hotter. The Climate Group. All countries - Climate Action Tracker. The Climate Action Tracker reveals major differences between the ambition levels of countries when it comes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

All countries - Climate Action Tracker

In the lead are the Maldives, who have proposed to become climate-neutral by 2020. Also at the high end of the scale are Bhutan, which proposes to stay carbon neutral and Costa Rica, which proposes to become carbon neutral by 2021 if international support is provided. They are followed by Japan, Norway, Papua New Guinea and South Korea, all of whom are proposing to reduce their emissions significantly. In the 'medium' range are developing countries such as Brazil, Chile, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa. Many of them propose to reduce the growth of their emissions by the 2020’s. The EU is a special case. China is rated 'inadequate', because its recently-announced target falls short of the ambition level that was expected from the implementation of the current national policies.

A Blog About Adaptation of Agriculture to Climate Change. Attribution of Climate-related Events (ACE) Unusual or extreme weather and climate-related events are of great public concern and interest, yet there are often conflicting messages from scientists about whether such events can be linked to climate change.

Attribution of Climate-related Events (ACE)

We propose a way forward. Through the development of carefully calibrated physically-based assessments of observed weather and climate-related events, we can identify any changed risk of such events attributable to particular factors. Research is under way, coordinated as part of the international Attribution of Climate-related Events (ACE) initiative, to develop the science needed to better respond to the demand for timely, objective, and authoritative explanations of extreme events.
