Video - WHAT'S ON THE CLIMATE PORTAL

--------------

How can the Climate Portal help?

The Climate Change Portal features topical articles, news, and resources for climate change / global warming education from authoritative sources, on climate science, impacts and mitigation / adaptation strategies - emphasizing what you can do to help. We also cover climate politics, negotiations, climate finance, and renewable energies. This is a soup-to-nuts climate site. You can think of this site as a climate LIBRARY. 

----------------- 

What about some examples?

1. UN efforts for countering climate change / global warming.

2. Article on climate contrarians / deniers / faux-skeptics.

3. Kids' Climate Corner  

4. UUA Statement of Conscience on Global Warming / Climate Change.

5.  HERE is a talk on climate risk management, ethics, and stranded assets:

6. NEWS items (example):

Top 20 Cities with Billions at Risk from Climate Change (Bloomberg)

7. More information:

HERE is a Time History of CO2 video of how the main greenhouse gas carbon dioxide has risen over the earth. Isotopic analysis shows that the observed CO2 increase is due to us humans. If we do not act to stop the increase, the negative impacts starting to be observed now will become huge by 2100, a short time span in the history of mankind.

 

 

 

  • HERE is an interactive map of the world with a 4°C temperature rise, a definite possibility by 2100 if little action is taken to mitigate global warming.

  • HERE is a great Climate Hot Map from the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Reports:

IPCC reports, e.g. this graph shows increases in greenhouse gases and origins:

The Contrarians? Full article with references Last Updated on 2017-10-28 23:11:08   Climate Contrarians AKA climate science deniers or climate "faux" skeptics spread disinformation about climate and try to prevent responsible climate risk management. Information for this rather comprehensive article is drawn from the many sources and links in the text. Who are the contrarians? What is the contrarian Agenda? What do contrarians Say about global warming? [The "Four Fallacy Trenches"] What about Real Scientific Skepticism and contrarians? What are some Contrarian Tactics and Fallacies? What about "fringe" contrarian ideas? Aren't there some contrarians with credentials who disproved mainstream climate science?

Battery Development: Electricity Storage of the Future Last Updated on 2017-10-18 20:20:52 We have long relied on batteries for powering small electronic devices.  However, battery technology has evolved far past the AAAs we still use, and hold significant promise for transforming our present into a sustainable future.   Among the many places that battery technology is changing is for electric and hybrid vehicles.  For example, research is underway that shows semisolid fuel cell batteries hold significant advantages over current lithium ion battery designs – once the bugs are worked out.  Should today’s research be fully implemented, lithium ion batteries could hold over ten times as much energy.  Even further in the future, when battery development moves past lithium, the potential is greater still. The implications of advanced vehicle battery designs are potentially monumental.  If and when battery technology matures to the point... More »
