We can solve our climate emergency, but we must act now. Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac outline two scenarios for our future: how life on Earth will be by 2050 if we fail to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets; or how it will look and feel to live in a carbon neutral, regenerative world. This is the final hour: it can be our finest hour. It’s up to us, which future we choose.

Precipitation (falling rain and snow) is our fresh water reservoir in the sky and is fundamental to life on Earth. This video shows the most detailed and worldwide view of rain and snowfall ever created and uses satellite measurements from the Global Precipitation Measurement Core Observatory, or GPM, a joint mission between NASA and the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Tracking precipitation from space with satellites provides information of where, when, and how much it rains and snows anywhere in the world and gives insight into the behavior of our weather, climate, and ecological systems.

(NASA) Earth's global surface temperatures in 2019 ranked second-warmest since 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Global temperatures in 2019 were 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 degrees Celsius) warmer than the late 19th century, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. 2019's temperatures were second only to those of 2016 and continued the planet's long-term warming trend: the five warmest years on the instrumental record have been the five last years.

This animation shows a full one year time lapse animation of CO2 surface concentration from Jan 1, 2016 until Jan 1, 2017. The data comes from NASA's GEOS-5 numerical weather model (https://gmao.gsfc.nasa.gov/GEOS/). Light colors represent higher amounts of CO2, whereas dark colors represent lower amounts.

On Laudato Si' & the Imminent Problem of Care for Creation
On Care for Our Common Home
Interview with Father John Rausch of the Glenmary Home Missioners who speaks about Pope Francis' Papal Encyclical Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home (2015), and the imminent problem humanity faces with "care of creation." Father John explains its not an economic or ecological problem — its a spiritual one, with great consequences for the world's poor — and more so, for all of us. We are all connected, and only through good relations and a value system that builds community and the global commons can we save the Earth.
Climate change is real, and each one of us has a stake in our common future, and so we need to engage in dialogue, and more so, change our lifestyles. Father John is a Catholic Priest and environmental steward of the US Southern Appalacia Mountain region. He has worked actively to raise awareness and to stop the dangerous practice of mountain top mining that is destroying biodiversity and communities throughout the Southeastern states of the US.
