The United Nations has released its long-awaited report on what can be done to prevent climate change and it includes one depressing conclusion after another. The report, which was produced by 1,250 international experts and approved by 194 governments, says the amount of greenhouse gases around the world reached “unprecedented...
Advanced Study Opportunity :: Uncertainty in Integrated Climate Change Research - NCAR Advanced Study Program Summer Colloquium.

Climate Voices :: To help foster informed, non-political dialogue about climate science, UCAR and the United Nations Foundation have assembled a network of experts who are available as resources in communities across the country. The Climate Voices – Science Speakers Network at is bringing together scientists with members of local communities to discuss climate science and regional effects of climate change. Volunteer scientists and other climate experts have been recruited from all 50 states.

Stronger trade winds stall climate change: Stronger trade winds driving more heat into ocean :: The pause in global warming since 2001 can be traced to a natural shift in weather patterns that causes stronger trade winds along the equator in the Pacific Ocean, new research indicates. When the patterns change, global temperatures will quickly warm, according to the researchers.

The research was led by Matthew England, deputy director of the Climate Change Research Center at the University of New South Wales, Australia.

Extreme Weather - Mitigation & Resiliency to Climate Change :: Check out and sign up for this free webinar with two NCAR scientists on April 16 from 4:30-7:00 MDT (or 6:30 EDT, 5:30 CDT, 3:30 PDT).

Gain understanding about reducing the sources and causes of climate change. We’ll discuss solutions-based mitigation and the use of data to understand extreme weather. We’ll also explore how communities can mitigate the effects of climate change by becoming more resilient.
The Jumbo Tornado Outbreak was 40 years ago on April 3, 1974. How did that disaster help lead to safer air travel - and what are the next challenges to solve to make aviation even safer?
