  1. NASA Warns That Loss of West Antarctic Glaciers, Rise of Sea Levels Now Unstoppable

    Any news on that extra Earth we ordered?

    A NASA press release today revealed that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is in an "irreversible state of decline" and rise of sea levels following its destruction will be unstoppable. So excuse me for a second, I need to go breathe heavily into a paper bag.

  2. Our Friend Bill Nye and John Oliver Teamed up to Mock Climate Change Debates on Last Week Tonight

    Can we get more evidence on the hat subject, though? I'm not convinced.

    Debates on scientific topics like climate change can get pretty silly, but they get especially silly when Our Friend Bill Nye and John Oliver purposefully mock them on Last Week Tonight. Oliver's whole bit about climate change debates is really great, but if you're impatient, jump to the three minute mark to see Bill Nye join in.

  3. Bill Nye Argues With CNN Host and Heritage Foundation Representative Over Climate Change Impact

    Didn't they see the Ken Ham thing?

    Our Friend Bill Nye appeared on CNN's Crossfire yesterday after a White House report about climate change was released. He was brought on to debate Heritage Foundation representative Nicolas Loris, but instead spent much of the time explaining how science works to the show's host S.E. Cupp.

  4. The Ocean Is Turning Into Acid Because Of CO2, So That’s Fun And Exciting

    Maybe start avoiding the beach? Unless you want to look like Harvey Dent.

    Stop me if you've heard this one, but the ocean is fairly important to, you know, all life on Earth. That being said, it's pretty unfortunate that a new, comprehensive study of our major bodies of water has shown that - slowly - they're all becoming steadily more acidic because of global warming.

  5. Climate Scientist Explains That Global Warming Doesn’t Mean It’s Never Cold, Because Apparently People Need to Hear That

    Sigh.

    Climate scientist Michael Mann went on MSNBC's All In With Chris Hayes to explain that yes, it can still get cold in the winter even though climate change is real. There can even be ice and snow. Seasons still happen. There's no shortage of evidence to support human-cause climate change, and none of it means weather is over.

  6. Updated: Get Your Climate Change Questions Answered in Today’s NASA Google+ Hangout

    How often do you get to ask NASA climate scientists questions?

    Have a question on climate change now that the IPCC 2013 report is out and says that humans are almost definitely the primary cause of global warming? Now's your chance to ask NASA climate scientists about it. NASA is hosting a Google+ Hangout today at 12:00PM EDT, and judging from the comments already, this should be interesting.

  7. New Projection Suggests We’re Looking at an Ice-Free Arctic by 2058

    Climate change is coming.

    A group of American and Chinese researchers have used an advanced climate simulation tool to project that the Arctic will undergo periods without ice, likely occurring during September, beginning sometime between the years 2054 and 2058.

  8. The Discovery of Climate Change Might Be Our Greatest Scientific Discovery [Video]

    Hooraaaay?

    Oh boy, PBS Idea Channel's getting into the climate change game. Say what you want about whether it exists, though (and I'm sure you all will); according to Mike Rugnetta, the fact that we've been able to gather so much data about different weather patterns across the globe for a century, standardize all that data, and turn those random numbers into useful and understandable information? That is pretty dang impressive. Seriously, have you ever watched the Weather Channel and thought about how much actual work goes into being able to record and analyze all that stuff? Watch the video already, because Mike explains this all better than I can.

  9. Study Finds Climate Change Now Inevitable, Suggests Learning How to Live in Waterworld Instead

    Good news, everyone! A study in the journal Nature Climate Change suggests that we can all stop worrying about how to prevent climate change, because at this point it's too late to do anything anyway. Instead of trying to change energy policy or institute cap and trade systems for carbon emissions, it's going to be more effective to just hunker down and do what we can to mitigate changing river flows, rapidly liquefying glaciers, and soil erosion.

  10. This Summer’s Drought Could Be the New Normal. I Hope You Didn’t Like Trees!

    Remember how we had all those droughts all over the country last summer, and all over the world the summers before that? Well, it turns out rather than "economically crippling worldwide drought," you may just want to start referring to that situation by its new name: "Summer." According to a study in the journal Nature Climate Change, the droughts of the last several years could just be the new normal if climate change predictions pan out. If that's the case, say researchers, forests could become a thing of the past. So, y'know, if those are your thing, I guess take a picture now?
