Video - WHAT'S ON THE CLIMATE PORTAL
How can the UU-UNO Climate Portal help?
The Climate Change Portal of theUnitarian Universalist United Nations Officeor UU-UNO 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. Newsfeeds from other climate sites bring topical information to the Portal every day. This is a soup-to-nuts climate site. You can think of this site as a climate LIBRARY.
Become a Portal member(no fee), which allows you to make comments on blogs.
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.

Republicans and anti-science ignorance: Nature editorialLast Updated on 2017-01-16 08:09:51Nature, the science magazine, wrote a scathing editorial in 2011, called Into Ignorance. It describes the increasingly anti-science Republican attitude exhibited in pushing their bill to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse-gas emissions, which the agency declared on the basis of reliable scientific evidence to be a threat to public welfare in 2009.

At a subcommittee hearing on 14 March, anger and distrust were directed at scientists and respected scientific societies. Misinformation was presented as fact, truth was twisted and nobody showed any inclination to listen to scientists, let alone learn from them."
Republicans increasingly rely on pseudo-scientific fallacies... More »
