Is our climate headed for a mathematical tipping point? – Victor J. Donnay

For most of us, two degrees Celsius is a tiny difference in temperature, not even enough to make you crack a window. But scientists have warned that as CO2 levels in the atmosphere rise, an increase in the Earth’s temperature by even this amount can lead to catastrophic effects all over the world. How can […]

The Politics and Economics of Climate Science – Kerry Emanuel

KERRY EMANUEL: I’m Kerry Emanuel. I’m a professor of atmospheric science here at MIT. I’ve been at MIT for 36 years. Before that, I was at UCLA for three years. And I’ve been interested in the atmosphere since I was a young child, and dreamed that I might make a profession of it some day. […]

NASA | Ask a Climate Scientist: CO2 and Temperature

[music] Is there any merit to the studies that show that historical CO2 levels lag behind temperature changes, not lead them. Well yes, there’s merit to that. In fact in the pre-industrial age, the CO2 response to temperature was that the temperature would go up and CO2 would go up. Or if the temperature went […]

Institute for Advanced Computational Science Accelerates Research

IACS is Institute for Advanced Computational Science here at Stony Brook University. We’re looking to mine the rich fields that exist between disciplines, going from hardcore engineering all the way off into the arts and humanities, and IACS creates that nexus. The root of my research is really to map out the wildlife of Antarctica. […]

Trump’s EPA Launches Full Blown Assault On Science

Trump’s EPA Launches Full Blown Assault On Science

A draft rule written by Donald Trump’s environmental protection agency has been revealed to the public and this new rule, if it becomes permanent, will significantly limit the kinds and types of science that the EPA takes into consideration when they make these new rules and regulations and put new limits on toxic chemicals. That […]

Did scientists get climate change wrong?

Did scientists get climate change wrong?

Hi everybody. Today I’m visiting the University of Oxford and I’m here to talk to Professor Tim Palmer about climate models. Tim, on the weekend I read this article in the New York Times. It was titled “How scientists got climate change so wrong” and it was mostly about weather extremes and said that climate […]

2018 in Review: the Biggest Science Stories of the Year

You know, giving us really hope to say, well, it would make sense to go back to Mars and really start seeing Mars as a potential place where life still could exist. It really is a mission of extremes. We will be the fastest moving man-made object ever, moving at speeds around 120 miles per […]
