gistemp_map_2014_withyearThe year 2014 now ranks as the warmest on record since 1880, according to an analysis by NASA scientists. Nine of the 10 warmest years since modern records began have now occurred since 2000, according to a global temperature analysis by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York.

2014’s record-breaking warmth continues a long-term trend of a warming climate. The global average temperature has increased about 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degrees Celsius) since 1880, with most of that warming occurring during the last three to four decades. The warming trend is largely driven by the increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, caused by human emissions.

The 10 warmest years in the instrumental record, with the exception of 1998, have now occurred since 2000. This trend continues a long-term warming of the planet, according to an analysis of surface temperature measurements by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

3d GreenlandPeering into the thousands of frozen layers inside Greenland’s ice sheet is like looking back in time. Each layer provides a record of not only snowfall and melting events, but what the Earth’s climate was like at the dawn of civilization, or during the last ice age, or during an ancient period of warmth similar to the one we are experiencing today.

Using radar data from NASA’s Operation IceBridge, scientists have built the first-ever comprehensive map of the layers deep inside the ice sheet. Cross-section of the age of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

Layers determined to be from the Holocene period, formed during the past 11,700 years, are shown in green. Layers accumulated during the last ice age, from 11,700 to 115,000 years ago, are shown in blue. Layers from the Eemian period, more than 115,000 years old, are shown in red. Regions of unknown age are gray.

Last Hours: A Green World Rising Movie Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio

Green World RisingThe film Last Hours is the 2nd film in the Green World Rising Series. Last Hours describes a science-based climate scenario where a tipping point to runaway climate change is triggered by massive releases of frozen methane. Methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, has already started to percolate into the open seas and atmosphere from methane hydrate deposits beneath melting arctic ice, from the warming northern-hemisphere tundra, and from worldwide continental-shelf undersea methane pools.

Last Hours is narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, presented by Thom Hartmann and directed by Leila Conners. Executive Producers are George DiCaprio, Earl Katz and Roee Sharon Peled. Last Hours is produced by Mathew Schmid and was written by Thom Hartmann, Sam Sacks, and Leila Conners. Music is composed and performed by Francesco Lupica. 

Created by Tree Media with the support of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

Burning fossil fuels release carbon that, principally through greenhouse effect, heat the atmosphere and the seas. This is happening most rapidly at the polar extremes, and this heating has already begun the process of releasing methane. If we do not begin to significantly curtail the use of carbon-based fossil fuels, this freed methane threatens to radically accelerate the speed of global warming, potentially producing a disaster beyond the ability of the human species to adapt.

With this film, we hope to awaken people to the fact that the earth has experienced five major extinctions in the deep geologic past – times when more than half of all life on earth vanished – and that we are now entering a sixth extinction. Industrial civilization with its production of greenhouse gases has the potential to trigger a mass extinction on the order of those seen in the deep geological past. In the extreme, it could threaten not just human civilization, but the very existence of human life on this planet.

An asset for the climate change movement, “Last Hours” will be disseminated globally to help inform society about the dangers associated with climate change and to encourage the world community to chart a path forward that greatly reduces green house gas emissions. We encourage you to explore this website and the highlighted actions you can take to address climate change. We look forward to bringing you additional films about the challenges we face and the solutions that exist over the next few years, in the lead up to COP21, the 2015 UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris.

End Coal: Coal Isn’t Clean, Coal Isn’t Cheap and Coal Isn’t The Solution To Energy Poverty

End CoalEnd Coal is formed by a group of environmental, social justice and health advocates who are concerned about coal’s heavy toll on human health, our natural environment and the planet’s climate. They come from around the world – from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America and the United States – and together they share a vision of a sustainable future powered by clean renewable energy delivered by the sun, the wind, the oceans and the heat from the core of our earth.

We developed the End Coal website to provide a resource for local communities, activists, students and researchers who would like to learn more about why coal is not the solution to the world’s energy needs and how you can work to stop the expansion of coal and promote better alternatives for meeting energy needs.

The Global Coal Plant Tracker provides information on coal plants proposed since 2010. Currently 570 units are under construction and an additional 1,721 units are in planning worldwide. A unit refers to one boiler, most coal plants have several units. For each unit, the tracker provides location, status, sponsor, size, and carbon dioxide emissions; each is linked to a wiki page containing further details and references.

The coal industry and its government allies want to you believe that coal is cheap, coal is clean, and coal is the solution to energy poverty. The coal industry spends millions of dollars per year propagating these myths, with the sole intention of convincing citizens, utilities and governments that continued investment in coal is inevitable. Yet contrary to what the industry would like you to believe, coal is dirty, it kills, its expensive, and it exacerbates poverty.
