The Oceans and Global Warming by Steve Palumbi
Static Preview

Marine Biologist, Dr. Stephen Palumbi, discusses the oceans and global warming which is transforming our environment. The temperature, acidity and water level of the ocean is rising. These changes are increasing in speed and magnitude and their effects will last for centuries. Corals are among those organisms hit hardest by global warming. The rate our climate changes will determine whether coral can survive or not. Uploaded on Nov 5, 2008

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.

NASA | Ask a Climate Scientist Submit Your Question
Static Preview

Published on Sep 4, 2013

Have a question that's always confounded you about Earth's climate? Wonder why it matters that the climate is changing now if it has changed before? Or how scientists know changes seen in recent decades are the result of human activities, not natural causes?

Go ahead. Ask a climate scientist.


To submit a question, record a short, 10-15 second video with your question and upload it to YouTube -- and be sure to tag the video "#askclimate" so that we can find it. You can also simply post a question on Twitter with the same hashtag, "#askclimate."
NASA scientists will be recording video responses to some of the questions we receive. The responses will be posted to the NASAExplorer YouTube channel.

NASA | Ask a Climate Scientist: CO2 and Temperature by Dr. Hildebrand
Static Preview

Is there any merit to the studies that show that historical CO2 levels lag behind temperature, and not lead them?
Yes, there's merit to those studies, says Peter Hildebrand, Director of the Earth Science Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, responding to a question from Twitter (https://twitter.com/Seth_b_clark/stat...).

In the pre-industrial age, the CO2 response to temperature was that the temperature would go up and CO2 would go up. Or if the temperature went down, CO2 would go down. Because when the temperature rose, the whole biosphere revved up and emitted CO2. So we understand that process.

In the post-industrial age, the opposite is true. Increasing CO2 in the atmosphere is leading to increased temperature. So two different things happened, one pre-industrial, where temperature was driving the CO2, and post-industrial, where CO2 was driving temperature. Which means a completely different physical-biological process is going on.Published on Sep 24, 2013

NASA | Ask a Climate Scientist: Global Warming Pause? Josh Willis
Static Preview

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."

The Water Cycle
Static Preview

This video uses animation, graphics, and video clips to illustrate and explain each of the "flow" and "storage" processes in the Hydrologic Cycle, more commonly known as the Water Cycle: precipitation, interception, runoff, infiltration, percolation, groundwater discharge, evaporation, transpiration, evapotranspiration, and condensation.

How Science is Like Democracy by Lee Smolin
Static Preview

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.

Native Science and Western Science by LeRoy Little Bear
Static Preview

Leroy Little Bear delivers the Spring 2011 Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture and Community.
Recorded March 24, 2011 at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona
Science depends on who is doing the defining, what we now accept as science, leaves out a lot of science.


Leroy Little Bear is a member of the Blood Tribe of the Blackfoot Confederacy. Leroy is the former Director of the American Indian Program at Harvard University and professor emeritus of Native Studies at the University of Lethbridge where he was department chair for 25 years. He has served as a legal and constitutional advisor to the Assembly of First Nations and has served on many influential committees, commissions, and boards dealing with First Nations issues.
