Delayed action on climate to result in irreversible change and high costs

Delayed action on climate to result in irreversible change and high costs
Show

The physics of Earth’s natural systems show that a delay—of even a decade—in reducing CO2 emissions will lock in large-scale, irreversible changes. If carbon dioxide emissions do not begin to trend down this decade, it will be nearly impossible to stabilize the climate at any acceptable level. ...

Climate change in the Arctic is not likely to spark an immediate boom in oil and gas exploration, according to a new study published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. But it will increase shipping there, and shipping-related emission of greenhouse gases will intensify in the region.

Ton of CO2
CommentaryWhat Does a Ton of CO2 Look Like?

March 10th, 2008 by jayb

Dave Ames, a science teacher at Cohasset High School in Cohasset, Massachusetts built a large cube that represents the size of 1 ton of carbon dioxide. Take a look.

OK, yes.  CO2 (carbon dioxide) is invisible.  But it's still interesting to see how much space a ton of CO2 would take up if it were sitting in front of you.  ... Read more about Ton of CO2
