24 Hours Of Reality

24 Hours of RealityHappening right now is The Climate Reality Project‘s 24 Hours of Reality.

Join us as we go around the world, identifying the costs of carbon pollution and the solution that can change the course of our future.” (24hoursofreality.org)

What follows below will be a smorgasbord of links to various sites, all talking about climate change, why it’s real, why it’s happening, and why it’s us who are causing it.

Climate 101 with Bill Nye. An introduction to the topic of climate change, presented in video format by Bill Nye the Science Guy. A good starter for everyone.

Reality Drop. Its mission is to reveal the denial and deception around climate change, spread the truth, and clear the way toward real solutions. Here’s a video introducing Reality Drop and what it plans to do.

James Hansen TED talk. “Top climate scientist James Hansen tells the story of his involvement in the science of and debate over global climate change. In doing so he outlines the overwhelming evidence that change is happening and why that makes him deeply worried about the future.

Climate Change is not like other environmental problems. David Roberts over at grist talks about climate change, and explains two major differences between it and other environmental problems: carbon dioxide is not like other pollutants; and climate change is irreversible.

Through the Looking Glass. “During what Sen. Bernie Sanders called an Alice in Wonderland hearing, Senate environment committee Republicans contradicted or ignored the near-unanimous consensus by climate scientists that global warming is real and man-made.” A passionate and excellent speech, which also shows the idiocy of climate change deniers (aka Republicans in this case).

Global Warming’s terrifying new math. A long article which goes into depth about three simple numbers that add up to a global catastrophe. The numbers are: 2 degrees Celsius; 565 Gigatons; and 2795 Gigatons.

The Cost of Carbon. “This is a living documentation of the price we are all paying for carbon pollution. Find out how you are paying, add your cost, and share with those who can help to end climate denial and put a price on carbon.

Global warming ‘confirmed’ by independent study. A slightly older article from the BBC, talking about global warming in the wake of the “Climategate” affair.

Arctic ice shrinks 18% against the record, sounding climate change alarm bells. The effect that global warming is having on our Arctic ice.

IPCC report. Information about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change: Scientific American; ABC Environment; The Guardian; and the BBC. All show that humans are the dominant cause behind climate change.

Finally, of more than 4000 academic papers published over 20 years, 97.1% agreed that climate change is anthropogenic. There is no controversy about climate change. There is no argument amongst climate scientists.

Climate change is real, it is happening, and it is caused by us.
