The boundary between the Eocene and Oligocene periods marks the point where Earth reverted from hot tropical conditions to a cooler glaciated planet.
Geological investigations of an Eocene hothouse world shows turbidites may be linked to extreme weather events from global warming.
A warming Barents Sea is everyone’s problem because what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic.
Due to climate change momentum there is a lag between stopping carbon emissions and stopping temperature increases.
Those living on the margins of climate change are understandably vocal about their anxiety as their homes sink below the waters of climate change.
Below the ground, climate change take place slowly, gradually corroding our city’s infrastructure and poisoning our coastal ecosystems with saltwater.
The middle Pliocene is our closest analog to present-day greenhouse gas levels. It provides a probable peek into our future — several more degrees of global temperature rise and many meters of sea-level rise.
Earth sweltered in greenhouse heat for 226 million years, from the late Permian to the early Oligocene. Then the switch flipped and an icehouse world arrived.
Control of methane emissions is one of the most direct actions available for limiting global warming.
Stopping all that momentum takes science, planning, and collaboration. So why did we leave the Paris Agreement on November 4th, 2020?
