During the last 200 years, human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels have increased concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere by 40%. If unchecked, continuing emissions will warm up the planet by 2.6°C to 4.8°C by the end of this century. This would have serious implications for human societies and the natural world.
This 60-second animation from the world's two leading science academies brings you the science behind climate change. Published on Dec 10, 2014

Arctic Emergency: Scientists Speak On Melting Ice and Global Impacts. This film by Max Wilbert brings you the voices of climate scientists - in their own words.
Rising temperatures in the Arctic are contributing the melting sea ice, thawing permafrost, and destabilization of a system that has been called "Earth's Air Conditioner".
Global warming is here and is impacting weather patterns, natural systems, and human life around the world - and the Arctic is central to these impacts. Published on Aug 1, 2014

Plumes of carbon dioxide in the simulation swirl and shift as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources. The simulation also illustrates differences in carbon dioxide levels in the northern and southern hemispheres and distinct swings in global carbon dioxide concentrations as the growth cycle of plants and trees changes with the seasons.
The carbon dioxide visualization was produced by a computer model called GEOS-5, created by scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office.
The visualization is a product of a simulation called a “Nature Run.” The Nature Run ingests real data on atmospheric conditions and the emission of greenhouse gases and both natural and man-made particulates. The model is then left to run on its own and simulate the natural behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere. This Nature Run simulates January 2006 through December 2006.
While Goddard scientists worked with a “beta” version of the Nature Run internally for several years, they released this updated, improved version to the scientific community for the first time in the fall of 2014.

BSR 2013 Mary Robinson is founder of the Foundation bearing her name and dedicated to thought leadership, education and advocacy on the struggle to secure global justice for those people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change who are usually forgotten - the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised across the worl
She served as President of Ireland from 1990 through 1997 and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights from 1997 through 2002. She is a member of the Elders and the Club of Madrid and the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom from U.S. President Barack Obama. She is a member of the Lead Group of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement. In March 2013, Robinson was appointed the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region of Africa. Her memoir, Everybody Matters, was published in March 2013. Published on Nov 14, 2013
Bill McKibben Speech at AASHE2011 Student Summit. He addresses the question,
what else do we need to do? Brings us up to date where we are today as a planet. Twenty-two years ago he wrote the End of Nature, before the issue/evidence of climate change.

Joss Tantram, co-founder and Partner,terrafiniti/ TOWARDS 9 BILLION, explains how understanding the value of our ecosystems, we can also understand the price of destroying our ecosystems. Published on Sep 17, 2013
Tantram presented at the Salzburg Global session on 'A Climate for Change: New Thinking on Governance for Sustainability', June 2013.
Our planet is a beautiful and awesome place. In a new video, join NASA scientists on a 40-minute visual tour of Earth from space, presented at the IMAX Theater at National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. on September 10.
"Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of Our Planet" was the theme for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center's fifteenth installment of its annual lecture and reception sponsored by the Maryland Space Business Roundtable. Published on Oct 23, 2014
Earth is a complex, dynamic system we do not yet fully understand. Like the human body, the Earth system comprises diverse components that interact in complex ways.
On this global tour, scientists lead the viewer through Earth's water cycle, forests and frozen regions as seen through the eyes of NASA's Earth observing satellite fleet. They share a story of how we can make life better today and into the future.
NASA's Earth science program aims to develop a greater understanding of Earth's system and its response to natural or human-induced changes, and to improve predictions of climate, weather and natural disasters.
The lecture features:
Lennard Fisk, Ph.D, Distinguished University Professor of Space Science, University of Michigan
Gail Skofronick-Jackson, Ph.D, Project Scientist for the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center on THE WATER CYCLE
Thorsten Markus, Ph.D Project Scientist for Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2)
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center on SEA ICE
Lola Fatoyinbo-Agueh, Ph.D, Principal Investigator, (Eco-Synthetic Aperture Radar) (EcoSAR)
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, LAND AND EARTH
Piers Sellers, Deputy Director, Science and Exploration Directorate, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, THE BIG PICTURE
