Our atmosphere, oceans and lands are constantly interacting with each other.
Two trillion tonnes of greenhouse gases, 25 billion nukes of heat: are we pushing Earth out of the Goldilocks zone?May 3, 2023 9:08 am Comments Off on Two trillion tonnes of greenhouse gases, 25 billion nukes of heat: are we pushing Earth out of the Goldilocks zone?
We’re in a race, and the stakes are as high as they could possibly be – ensuring a liveable climate for our children and for nature.
We experience the weather and climate directly, by our lived experience. What matters more is the big picture we are seeing.
"It is unambiguous that climate is changing due to human activity – specifically the emissions of greenhouse gases. These are increasing the risk of some extreme events.”
While scientific debate is important and healthy, we must be careful not to let nomenclature become the centre of the debate, and ultimately delay progress in our understanding of phenomena.
A compound event is when bad weather and climate events combine together. Storms, droughts, floods and fires can become compound events.
Low-income nations have contributed relatively little to global emissions. Compensation from richer nations is vital to helping them manage the growing burden of climate harms.
As the tropical climate warms, the intensity of rainfall and winds associated with the Madden-Julian Oscillation as well as their patterns may change, leading to intense debate and scrutiny of how extratropical weather will be affected.
Torrents of Antarctic meltwater are slowing the currents that drive our vital ocean ‘overturning’ – and threaten its collapseMarch 30, 2023 3:06 pm Comments Off on Torrents of Antarctic meltwater are slowing the currents that drive our vital ocean ‘overturning’ – and threaten its collapse
Much of the abyssal ocean has warmed in recent decades, with the most rapid trends detected near Antarctica, in a pattern very similar to our model simulations.
I learnt the benefits of reaching out through e-mail while I was a student, now I receive many cold e-mails myself. Here’s how to write a good one.
