Arctic beavers are following their instincts and, in the process, accelerating the rate of Arctic permafrost melt and carbon release.
The concept of floating homes has been taken to a new level as countries adapt to the reality of rising seas.
The climate is rapidly changing. Climate adaptation recognizes this reality and embraces a sustainable future.
The escaping exhaust fumes from underground fires deliver a constant stream of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, and the fires have proven almost impossible to extinguish.
Some stories are too quirky to ignore, and we must reap what we sow. The activation of zombie landslides in Alaska is a direct result of global climate change.
The cost of flooding in the USA is high. We’ve seen it, and we constantly read about it in the news. A recent survey of flood risk for commercial real estate is not encouraging.
Despite the current political dismissals of threats from climate change, a rapid 2-foot rise in sea level would be bad news for Florida, Ron DeSantis, and the rest of the world. This threat is what the fuss is about.
Yedoma, a highly organic, Pleistocene-age permafrost, contains 50 to 90 percent ice mixed with organic carbon. When Yedoma melts, it delivers a blast of potent greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.
Based on Florida’s recent response to the masking controversy, we can assume the “left-wing stuff” probably includes listening to the advice of scientists and proactively cutting greenhouse emissions.
Realistically, we should be clear about Anthropocene climate change. It doesn’t pose a threat to the biosphere. Life goes on.
