Climate Progress

Climate Progress looks at different articles highlighting the different costs of ignoring climate change and how to best address the issues. The nice design of the site, along with sections on the other implications of climate change, make the site very useful.

Inside Climate News

Inside Climate News is a Pulitzer prize-winning, non-profit, non-partisan news organization that covers clean energy, carbon energy, nuclear energy and environmental science-plus the territory in between where law, policy and public opinion are shaped. Our mission is to produce clear, objective stories that give the public and decision-makers the information they need to navigate the heat and emotion of climate and energy debates.

Climate Central

Climate Central 501(c)3 surveys and conducts scientific research on climate change and informs the public and decision-makers of key findings. We investigate and synthesize weather and climate data and science to equip local communities and media with the tools they need to visualize the threat of climate change and the need for practical solutions. Climate Central is not an advocacy organization or lobbying group.

Yale Study On Climate Dissonance

A study Funded by the National Science Foundation, was conducted by researchers associated with the Cultural Cognition Project at Yale Law School which involved a nationally representative sample of 1500 U.S. adults. The study set out to evaluate political controversy over climate change to the public's ability to understand science, and, to understand opposing sets of cultural values.

The study concluded that public apathy over climate change was unrelated to science literacy. It wasn't a matter of understanding the science, but according to Dan Kahan, the Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Law and professor of psychology at Yale Law School, "The study suggests the need for science communication strategies that reflect a more sophisticated understanding of cultural values."

The Climate Desk

The Climate Desk is a journalistic collaboration dedicated to exploring the impact-human, environmental, economic, political-of a changing climate. The partners are The Atlantic, Center for Investigative Reporting, The Guardian, Grist, The Huffington Post, Mother Jones, Slate, and Wired.

Skeptical Science

Explaining climate change science & rebutting global warming misinformation

Scientific skepticism is healthy. Scientists should always challenge themselves to improve their understanding. Yet this isn't what happens with climate change denial. Skeptics vigorously criticise any evidence that supports man-made global warming and yet embrace any argument, op-ed, blog or study that purports to refute global warming. This website gets skeptical about global warming skepticism. Do their arguments have any scientific basis? What does the peer reviewed scientific literature say?

The Consensus Project

The Consensus Project measured the level of consensus in published, peer-reviewed climate research that humans are causing global warming. In the most comprehensive analysis to date, they analyzed 21 years worth of peer-reviewed papers on "global warming" or "global climate change". Among the 12,465 papers, they identified over 4,014 abstracts authored by 10,188 scientists that stated a position on human-caused global warming.

There is a large gap between the public perception of consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) and the reality of 97% agreement among climate scientists. Nor has the consensus been conveyed through the media and is little-known by the public at large. This "Consensus Gap" has real-world implications. When people don't realize there's a scientific consensus, they're less likely to support climate action.

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era - and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth's orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years. Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.

350.0rg

Your place for climate action! 350.org is building a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Their online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are coordinated by a global network active in over 188 countries.

The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a livable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm.

350 believes that a global grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. That movement is rising from the bottom up all over the world, and is uniting to create the solutions that will ensure a better future for all.

With over 4000 languages spoken around the world, words don't always get the point across. This wordless animation explains 350.org in 90 seconds:

The current cycle of global warming is changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely upon. What will we do to slow this warming? How will we cope with the changes we've already set into motion? While we struggle to figure it all out, the face of the Earth as we know it - coasts, forests, farms, and snow capped mountains-hangs in the balance.
