S2E39: The cost of climate repair vs. COVID-19—w/ Sir David King & Rick Parnell
Nori, Nov 17th, 2020

So, what if we mobilized against climate change similarly to the way we responded to the coronavirus?…..

Could Geoengineering Help Save the World’s Ice?
Sierra, Jan 21st, 2020

Imagine 2,000 elephants running into the ocean.

The Greenland ice sheet loses that much water in weight every second, according to Dartmouth climatologist Erich Obsterberg. It equals about 250 billion tons per year. Arctic sea ice as a whole has gone from 7 million square miles in 1979 to a little over 4 million in 2019. Meanwhile, Antarctica is wasting away at six times the rate it was 40 years ago..

Letters to the editor – On our climate change issue
The Economist, Oct 11th, 2019

Limiting temperature rises to 2°C above pre-industrial norms would still leave atmospheric carbon dioxide at well over 450 parts per million (ppm) (“What goes up”, September 21st). We evolved, and until less than a century ago, lived, on a 300ppm planet. We need to return the Earth’s climate to its pre-industrial state, without doing the same to our economy.…

Continuing Education: Biomimetic Materials
Architectural Record, Oct 1st, 2019

The Earth’s biological materials and the processes through which they’re generated represent the fruits of about 3.8 billion years of research and development. As our species approaches the limits of the earth’s carrying capacity, there’s a lot humans can learn from them. That’s the basic premise of biomimicry—design inspired by the way functional challenges have been solved in biology……

One leader’s journey to climate restoration
Grist, Sept 17, 2019

There’s no easy way to say this: We’re not doing enough to address climate change.

Scientists and policymakers have painted a bleak picture of the future: a vision of widespread destruction that has left a lot of people feeling utterly hopeless, instead of inspired to implement sweeping, international reforms while we still can.…
