Is there a pause in global warming?
This question was posed to Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientist Josh Willis as part of NASA's Ask A Climate Scientist campaign.
Josh gets asked a lot if there has been a pause in global warming, because temperatures aren't increasing as fast as they were a decade ago. No, he says, global warming is definitely still increasing (http://climate.nasa.gov/key_indicator...). We see more heat being trapped in the oceans, and sea levels are rising. Look at the sea level record for the last decade (http://climate.nasa.gov/key_indicator...). It's going up like gangbusters, hasn't slowed down.
There's not really a pause in global warming. Sometimes there's natural fluctuations and we warm up a little faster in one decade and a little slower in another decade, but global warming, human-caused climate change? Josh says, "that's definitely going right on up in there. We haven't slowed down at all."

Physicist Lee Smolin talks about how the scientific community works: as he puts it, "we fight and argue as hard as we can," but everyone accepts that the next generation of scientists will decide who's right. And, he says, that's how democracy works, too. More of his lectures on his Website here.

We hear a lot about how the Amazonian Rainforest is disappearing—but we don't hear much about how that affects the health of the people who once called it home.
By now it's an old story: Despite the international efforts that have taken place over the last 30-40 years to protect the Amazonian Rainforest and its indigenous peoples, ecological and cultural degradation continues at an alarming rate.
We invite you to create with us a beautiful and important project: the Sacha Warmi Center—an educational resource that will serve many people—located on the outskirts of the Amazonian Rainforest in the Pastaza region of Ecuador.
Donations accepted here.
Thank you for your generosity and support. Rosa Canelos and Didier Lacaze

The narrator is Frank Schott, Global Program Director at NetHope.
April 4-6, 2012, the Indigenous Environmental Network hosted a profound 3 day Rights of Mother Earth Conference at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas. This is one selection of a presentation from the conference. More conference coverage is available on the IENearth YouTube Channel.
This video addresses closing remarks of conference:
Domination of and the destruction of the values of the land can be seen when our Indigenous Knowledge is ignored or not shared by all. If people are given a choice based on the reality of what happens to our world when we disregard for the systems that sustain us and what would be if we return to the ancient knowledge that sustained the people of this hemisphere for thousands of years.
