The natural disasters are here to herald the arrival of Jesus Christ The Pope invented climate change to hide that truth and create a reason to enforce his. As of November 2017, the NOAA Climate Stewards Education Project will be known as the NOAA Planet Stewards Education Project. We are expanding our scope to include a wider range of NOAA topics related to understanding and protecting our environment. This means we will focus on a larger number of subjects such as decreasing the impacts of marine debris, conserving and restoring natural resources, and understanding and responding to severe weather events. We will continue our programmatic emphasis on climate as a driver of environmental impacts to humans and natural ecosystems. This change will allow us to better serve many educators looking to engage their students in citizen science and hands-on stewardship activities that relate to the broad range of NOAA's mission programs. The NOAA Planet Stewards Education Project (PSEP) provides formal and informal educators working with elementary through college aged students the knowledge and resources to build scientifically-literate individuals and communities who are prepared to respond to environmental challenges monitored by NOAA. PSEP also supports educators in the development and implementation of projects involving hands-on activities that conserve, restore, and protect human communities and natural resources. NOAA Planet Stewards is organized into two groups, the Education Community and the Stewardship Community. Participants are invited to attend monthly webinars, book club discussions, and face-to-face workshops at locations across the country. Workshops have focused on citizen science, STEM, community resilience, climate science, and a range of environmental education topics.

We can help you understand how and why our climate is changing, how climate change affects us, and what people can do to slow climate change and prepare for it. We explain the science behind climate change, the impacts of climate change, and how you can help. I’m a Democrat: I think governments play a key role in helping preserve our environment for the future in the most cost-effective way possible. At first, I was annoyed, because I thought the science really was settled. More than thirty years ago, I became vegan because I believed it was healthier (it’s not), and I’ve stayed vegan because I believe it’s better for the environment (it is). I love animals; I’ll gladly fly halfway around the world to take photos of them in their natural habitats. Over the years, I built a set of assumptions: that Al Gore was right about global warming, that he was the David going up against the industrial Goliath. As I started to look at the data and read about climate science, I was surprised, then shocked. I now think there probably is no climate crisis and that the focus on CO2 takes funding and attention from critical environmental problems. I’ll start by making ten short statements that should challenge your assumptions and then back them up with an essay. There are no studies showing a conclusive link between global warming and increased frequency or intensity of storms, droughts, floods, cold or heat waves. The increase in storms is simply a result of improved measurement methods. There is no such thing as “carbon pollution.” Carbon dioxide is coming out of your nose right now; it is not a poisonous gas. CO2 concentrations in previous eras have been many times higher than they are today. No one has demonstrated any unnatural damage to reef or marine systems. Additional man-made CO2 will not likely harm oceans, reef systems, or marine life.
Feb 6, 2018. Once a point of contention, manmade climate change is now scientific fact. More than 97 per cent of climate scientists agree that changes to the global climate in the last century have been caused by anthropogenic activity. The so-called 'Consensus on consensus' has drawn more attention to an issue that. Ever wonder how your tiny carbon footprint really impacts the big picture of climate change? Though you might feel like your lifestyle is insignificant compared to things like oil extraction or vehicle emissions, the choices we make in our day-to-day life — how we get around, what we eat, how we live — play a major role in slowing climate change. Here’s a list of 10 ways you can join in the fight to reduce our carbon footprint. There are lots of different ways you can take action. Take a few minutes to contact your political representatives and the media to tell them you want immediate action on climate change. Remind them that reducing greenhouse gas emissions will also build healthier communities, spur economic innovation and create new jobs.
Sep 16, 2015. The problem with that perspective is, although moms and dads may differ politically, our desire to see our kids grow up happy and healthy is universal. But if enough of us make small changes in our lives and raise our voices on climate and clean energy issues, those actions can add up to a big solution. For Earth Day on April 22, the 2018 Preserve the Earth poster illustrated by artist Cathie Bleck depicts marine species—dolphins, whales, birds, seals, crabs, tiny plankton along with many others—at risk from ocean debris. A colorful set of six commemorative postcards feature our 2018 Preserve the Earth poster depicting marine species at risk from ocean debris. Department of State sent dozens of America’s greatest jazz musicians to tour the globe becoming known as “the Jazz Ambassadors.” Recognizing the cross-cultural appeal of jazz, American Jazz Ambassadors were able to transcend national boundaries, build new cultural bridges, and tell a larger story about freedom in America. Department of State sent America’s greatest jazz musicians—“The Jazz Ambassadors—touring worldwide. Five other Preserve the Earth posters from previous years complete this set. From the 1950s to the 1970s, jazz took the world by storm in response to popular jazz broadcasts such as Willis Conover’s Voice of America radio show, Music USA. These remarkable American jazz musicians were enthusiastically welcomed from Africa to the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Jan 13, 2017. Every American is vulnerable to the health impacts associated with climate change, but some populations will be especially affected. These groups include the poor, some communities of color, limited English-proficiency and immigrant groups, indigenous peoples, children and pregnant women, older. In his March 17 op-ed titled “The Case for a Carbon Tax on Beef,” Richard Conniff argues that it is time to break off “our collective love affair with beef” because the cattle industry “has a larger impact on the environment than that of any other meat or dairy product.” Mr. Conniff admits that he got the idea for a special beef tax from the French, which should already give any serious person pause. The French notoriously address every possible problem by taxing it to death, so that only the rich can avail themselves of the finer things in life. Last May, former President Barack Obama warned the world that eating meat was causing a dramatic rise in climate emissions. “People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane,” Obama said at a food innovation summit in Milan, adding that “as people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector.” “No matter what, we are going to see an increase in meat consumption,” Obama said, pointing to developing economies in China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. More advanced countries, Obama said, would have to teach people to “have a smaller steak” and explore reductions to their meat consumption. Conniff said that the agriculture sector is the third-largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, after the energy and industrial sectors. Citing Chatham House, the British think tank, Conniff said that raising livestock accounts for 14.5 percent of global emissions, “more than the emissions produced from powering all the world’s road vehicles, trains, ships and airplanes combined.” Among all livestock, cattle raised for beef and dairy products account for almost two-thirds of all livestock emissions, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, he said. The 1 billion to 1.4 billion cattle worldwide—at some 1,300 pounds apiece—means that “their footprint on the planet easily outweighs ours.” In the fall of 2016, Michael Battaglia warned in an article in The Conversation that because of the methane produced in cows’ stomachs, cow belching is a much bigger problem even than the occasional flatulence that was thought to be so detrimental to the environment.
The Challenges of Climate Change. Innocenti Insight. Children on the front line. produced an edition of its online debate. Research Watch on Climate Change and Children. development and adaptation on a more long-term basis, as the essay by Roger Hart, Scott Fisher and Bijan. “Our generation has inherited an incredibly beautiful world from our parents and they from their parents. It is in our hands whether our children and their children inherit the same world” (Richard Branson). This quote is a brief rewording of the issue we have today with global warming. For those who are not aware of what global warming is, it is when too much carbon dioxide is added into the atmosphere. Global warming can cause sever hurricanes, intense weather, and many other natural disasters.
Extreme weather events connected to climate change promise to wreck devastation and in few places is it as relevant as the Philippines Yes, there are many strange things happening all around the world in regards to the weather and the environment. And many can assume that the term "climate change" is valid; as it is. BUT, first and foremost, it's not global warming as the Pope claims. And yes, the Pope is at the forefront of this lie because he was prophesied to do this and so he is not who you think he is. If you trust the Bible and historic referencing, then see me characteristics of Antichrist page to get the truth about this man in Rome. I not only list dozens of prophecies about the fruits, characteristics and antics of the Antichrist; I show using verified historic records that every prophecy ever uttered in the Word of God regarding Antichrist have been fulfilled 100% to the letter by the Popes of Rome. if Russia wanted to infiltrate America, they would send a spy that acts just like an American, right? Well the same is true with the Government of God, or the church as most see it today. Satan hates the Lord with a passion and so he created a religious organization that borrows just enough truth from Christianity to make it appear as a church to people that refuse to truly study the Word of God. He does this to infiltrate God's people so as to lead them to destruction just as a Russian spy would do for his government.
According to the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, the term climate change is often used interchangeably with the term global warming, but according to the National Academy of Sciences, "the phrase 'climate change' is growing in preferred use to 'global warming' because it helps convey that there are other changes. It’s not the only descriptor I use for myself, but it’s up there at the top. She loves to play outside and hug trees and chase birds and go fishing with her daddy. My weekdays consist of trying to convince Texas policymakers to take action on climate change, and I sometimes think negotiating with statewide officials is harder than negotiating with a “threenager.”As parents, our daily lives consist of a million things we have to do to keep the kids fed, dressed, and out of harm’s way. The problem with that perspective is, although moms and dads may differ politically, our desire to see our kids grow up happy and healthy is universal. But if enough of us make small changes in our lives and raise our voices on climate and clean energy issues, those actions can add up to a big solution. Climate change and life as we know it When a problem seems overwhelming, as climate change often does, it’s helpful to break it down into relatable pieces. Let’s think about how climate change affects our everyday activities with our children. For example, my daughter and I start the day with breakfast. Oats and blueberries are generally grown in cooler climates (Russia is by far the largest oat producer in the world).
Oct 27, 2017. I now have extra time on this icy morning to correct that stack of essays on climate change before heading off to teach my 5th grade class. It will take that long for the snowplows to finish clearing the roads. Climate change – global warming – a curious topic to be thinking about on such a frigid morning? Soaring temperatures, melting ice caps, diseases on the rise. With such high stakes, it’s not surprising that climate change tends to trigger a sense of fear. In fact, one recent, widely-shared story about climate change in opens with the words, “It is, I promise, worse than you think.” “The article paints a bleak picture,” says Seth Wynes, a researcher in the Geography Department at the University of British Columbia. “I think it’s important to realize that we have a lot of choice in the planet that we want to have future generations inheriting. Even if we’ve missed the ideal scenario, which is no climate warming—because we're already locked into some climate warming—we have a much better future in store for us if we act quickly and make significant changes.” Some researchers suggest that we have just a few years to start fighting global warming in earnest if we want to avoid the worst effects. Of course, this raises the question of what it to act quickly against climate change—especially on a personal level. At the end of the day, it all comes down to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We emit greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide when we burn fossil fuels like coal—or when the cattle that get turned into burgers fart.
These people were concerned enough about climate change to actually act on it. Within weeks of our arrival at our new home in the cloud forest. Not just in the way that we’re all inching inevitably toward our own deaths each moment; I was hurtling toward a specific death with a name, a shape, and a timeline. I was lying in a hospital bed, so ill that diagnosis, when someone finally named the doom I had been feeling in my body for months, was a relief. At least the sense of vague terror and impending catastrophe I had been feeling had a name. A cure, in the shape of a stem cell transplant, was possible, but it required the complete and utter dissolution of myself, dangling my broken body over the edge of the very cliff a cure is meant to postpone. It wasn’t just my body that dissolved in those weeks: My mind and soul were also broken apart, fragmented, and brought to the edge of ruin. In medical terms, I became depressed, hallucinatory, and delusional. But it gave me the space to sit with that misery, call it by its name, and know its shape. And in medical terms, the team of doctors really didn’t have jack-shit to prescribe me except for patience. That was valuable, just as the name and shape of the leukemia diagnosis had been valuable some months before. I was visited by a mindfulness practitioner during this time, but I was too far gone for prolonged mindfulness practice, unable to bring myself to a set of exercises that had sustained me prior to illness. Instead my visitor asked me to count to four, in line with my breath. And to come back to this simple counting whenever I needed it. I could get through my pain, my nausea, my misery, for the count of four breaths. After my stem cell transplant, I was pulled back from that cliff over which I had dangled for many weeks. Many hands took part in pulling me back—doctors and nurses; my husband; my parents; endless numbers of blood donors; and the new cells, a gift from a woman I had yet to come to know, a mother of three across the country, who gave me a new self to inhabit.
THIS ESSAY has had over 180,000 views. Please link to Welcome new readers from my Interview with Barack Obama. Enjoy! If the answer is. Human activity is the main cause of climate change. People burn fossil fuels and convert land from forests to agriculture. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, people have burned more and more fossil fuels and changed vast areas of land from forests to farmland. Burning fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. It is called a greenhouse gas because it produces a “greenhouse effect”. Carbon dioxide and other substances are outside the climate system.
Feb 27, 2018. An easy-to-understand introduction to climate change and global warming. What are the causes and what are the solutions? We’re already seeing the effects of man-made climate change — but nature can help. To confront climate change — a threat facing our entire planet — people everywhere must take part in practical, affordable solutions. We’re already seeing the effects of climate change, but thankfully, we’re equipped with the most effective tool to mitigate and adapt to it: nature. Protecting nature today means a better planet for future generations. Share these facts about climate change and help make a difference: The choices we make have an impact on the climate.
Nov 27, 2015. Human activity is the main cause of climate change. People burn fossil fuels and convert land from forests to agriculture. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, people have burned more and more fossil fuels and changed vast areas of land from forests to farmland. Burning fossil fuels produces. To see why, consider a 2016 study, “Global and regional health effects of future food production under climate change,”  that made dire forecasts: by 2050 the effects of climate change on agriculture will shrink the amount of food people eat, especially fruits and vegetables, enough to cause 529,000 deaths each year from malnutrition and related diseases. Looked at in the broader context of economic development, climate change will barely slow our progress in the effort to raise living standards. Human greenhouse emissions will warm the planet, raise the seas and derange the weather, and the resulting heat, flood and drought will be cataclysmic. While the climate upheaval will be large, the consequences for human well-being will be small. The report added grim specifics to the familiar picture of a world made hot, hungry, and barren by the coming greenhouse apocalypse. But buried beneath the gloomy headlines was a curious detail: the study also predicts that in 2050 the world will be better fed than ever before. The “reduced food availability” is only relative to a 2050 baseline when food will be more abundant than now thanks to advances in agricultural productivity that will dwarf the effects of climate change. Those advances on their own will raise per-capita food availability to 3,107 kilocalories per day; climate change could shave that to 3,008 kilocalories, but that’s still substantially higher than the benchmarked 2010 level of 2,817 kilocalories—and for a much larger global population. Per-capita fruit and vegetable consumption, the study estimated, will rise by 6.1 percent and meat consumption by 5.4 percent.
