A Year in the Life of Earth's CO2 by NASA
Static Preview
Published on Nov 17, 2014
An ultra-high-resolution NASA computer model has given scientists a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe. Very interesting.

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.

More Questions to Global Leaders from #WhyWhyNot:
Static Preview

Climate change is real. It is happening right now, before our very eyes. We all have a lot to lose. So why haven't world leaders taken action? This video features a cross section of young persons asking the question, Why? Why Not?, a project of the Climate Reality Project. They have been workingin collaboration with WPP, the world's largest communications services group, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the #WhyWhyNot campaign to put pressure on world leaders, through their citizens, to make meaningful commitments on carbon emission reduction

Why? Why Not? In every language on the planet, children ask these questions over, and over, and over. They ask the first to understand the world around them, and they ask the second when they want to change that world.

We want people of all ages to ask those questions of their friends, their social networks and, most importantly, their elected representatives and keep asking them until the lies of the deniers and their vested interests run out.Published on Oct 1, 2014

Climate Change the State of the Science
Static Preview

A data visualization of climate change effects. Produced by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme and Globaia and funded by the UN Foundation. Published on Nov 19, 2013The data visualization summarises and visualizes several of the most significant statements in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) recent Fifth Assessment Report, (Working Group I summary for policymakers, the Physical Science Basis). In 2014, IPCC will publish summaries concerning societal impacts, mitigation and adaptation.

The statements and facts presented are derived from the IPCC summary for policymakers.

Projected U.S. Precipitation Changes by 2100 from NASA
Static Preview

Published on Jul 23, 2013

The climate of the southwestern U.S. could be a lot drier by 2100. The climate of the northeastern U.S. could be a lot wetter.


"These visualizations communicate a picture of the impacts of climate change in a way that words do not," says Allison Leidner, Ph.D., a scientist who coordinates NASA's involvement in the National Climate Assessment "When I look at the scenarios for future temperature and precipitation, I really see how dramatically our nation's climate could change."

New visualizations of computer model projections show how precipitation patterns could change across the U.S. in the coming decades under two different carbon dioxide emissions scenarios.

The date seen in the bottom-right corner is the mid-point of the 30-year average being shown. To learn more about the National Climate Assessment, due out in 2014, visit here.
