- Climate change denial draws headlines. But is it actually an obstacle to climate action?
- A great majority of Americans say they're concerned about climate change.
- The real roadblock is our unwillingness to pay money to help stop climate change.
New statistical analyses show that human-driven climate change is a virtual certainty.
- While it's difficult to find people who deny climate change is happening, some still argue that humans are not climate change's primary cause.
- By applying peer-reviewed statistical methods to 40 years' worth of satellite data, researchers have determined that the evidence of human-driven climate change has passed the gold standard of scientific certainty: the five-sigma level.
- This threshold is used in particle physics to determine the existence of new particles; now, it's being used to definitively state that humans are the cause of climate change.
In one generation, the climate of many American cities will experience a noticeable shift.
- A recent study used climate data, both current and projected, to examine how the climates of North American cities might change over the course of the next generation.
- In one scenario, the climates of many cities will resemble that of locations about 500 miles away, mostly to the south.
- The study aims to present the long-term effects of climate change in a personal, tangible way.
Experts say global warming is no longer some future worry. It's already here.
- President Trump and other politicians have routinely dismissed climate change as a hoax.
- Data from NASA and NOAA show 2018 was the fourth hottest year on record.
- Collectively, the last five years have represented the hottest in the 139-year record.
Who would've thought that never seeing blue sky would bum you out?
- China's economy is growing at 8 percent per year, but its citizens aren't getting any happier.
- New research from MIT analyzed 33 million posts from Sina Weibo (the Chinese version of Twitter) and compared their expressed happiness with local pollution levels.
- The study shows that high-pollution days are making Chinese civilians significantly less happy.
