Melting Greenland Ice Sheets with Gordon Hamilton
Static Preview

Speed of glaciers march to the sea is tripling!

On the Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier -- one of Greenland's largest ice fields -- scientists measure the movement of the ice sheet as it transports frozen water to the ocean. They discover that the speed of the glacier's march to the sea has tripled in just ten years. Alarm bells sound because at the current melt rate, within a few decades rising seas will have a profound effect on the low-lying countries of the world. January 20, 2012 uploaded. Gordon Hamilton is a glaciologist working on ice sheet dynamics, and the role ice sheets play in modulating global sea levels.

Putting a Social Price on Carbon by Maggie Fox
Static Preview

The Social Cost of Carbon estimates the monetary damages that result from carbon pollution -- essentially putting a value on the effects of climate change that are already costing us today. Webinar presentation (audio) by Maggie Fox.


The Obama Administration requires agencies to factor in these damages when making new policies. After careful scientific analysis, the current estimate was increased to $37 per metric ton of carbon pollution.

But Big Oil and Big Coal oppose this increase, attempting to reduce the social cost of carbon so that they can continue polluting recklessly.

Six Decades of a Warming Earth by NASA
Static Preview

Published on Jan 21, 2014

This visualization shows how global temperatures have risen from 1880 through the end of 2013. NASA scientists say 2013 tied for the seventh warmest of any year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures. With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.

The visualization shows a running five-year average global temperature, as compared to a baseline average global temperature from 1951-1980.

This color-coded map displays a progression of changing global surface temperatures anomalies from 1880 through 2013. Higher than normal temperatures are shown in red and lower then normal temperatures are shown in blue.

Transporting Coal through the Pacific NorthWest
Static Preview

Energy producers, transporters and brokers of coal, specifically, Ambre Energy and Arch Coal Inc. have put Southwest Washington and the Pacific Northwest in the spotlight with proposals to transform ports into key shipping hubs in a worldwide realignment of valuable oil and coal resources. Under 14 different plans and operations, Washington and Oregon ports would essentially serve as a vast transfer station for the coal and oil being extracted from America's heartland, where raw materials are sent to domestic and overseas markets, primarily in Asia, demanding fuel and electricity for growth.  This is a trailer for the documentary, Momenta which explores the impact of these plans and the citizen groups opposed to such plans.
