Are voters informed about the lobbying efforts and campaign fund raising being driven by groups interested in influencing climate legislation? The ESM goals are to improve the CESM fidelity critical for understanding climate change, system feedbacks and potential tipping points, and to discern climate interactions with past and possible future energy pathways. Paleodata of various kinds indicate that the Earth's climate prior to the last million years was considerably warmer.

The Kármán line, at 100 km (62 mi), or 1.57% of Earth's radius, is often used as the border between the atmosphere and outer space. Natural climate variability arises from two different sources: (1) internal variability from interactions among components of the climate system, for example, between the ocean and the atmosphere, and (2) natural external forcings, such as variations in the amount of radiation from the Sun.

Whole states and nations are suffering from droughts that go unnoticed internationally. These changes include the shifting of global temperature zones, the shifting of planetary wind and ocean current patterns, the occurrence of monsoons, hurricanes, flooding, and severe weather. Targeting upper-elementary-aged children, the site includes interactive games, hands-on activities, and engaging articles that make climate science accessible and fun.

The Investigation of the Magnitudes and Probabilities of Abrupt Climate Transitions (IMPACTS) activity improves model components and investigates four potential abrupt changes to the climate system: The potential abrupt destabilization of the ice sheets at an ice-sheet ocean interface, boreal and Arctic positive climate feedbacks, rapid destabilization of methane hydrates in Arctic Ocean sediments, and mega droughts in North America, including the role of biosphere-atmosphere feedbacks.

Presently, we are in a period of low eccentricity (~3%) and this gives us a seasonal change in solar energy of ~7%. Climate change analysts who focus on policy deal less with primary data; instead, they evaluate the published body of climate data and work to draw higher-level conclusions and make predictions from multiple studies. So far, those predictions seem to be spot on. Ice will continue to melt and sea level is predicted to rise 18 to 97 cm (7 to 38 inches) by 2100 (Figure 17.40).

By emphasizing depth rather than breadth, the Core seeks to empower students rather than intimidate them with a collection of isolated and forgettable facts. They will also become “season watchers” to help them understand the seasons. The surprising evidence from the paleoclimate record is how quickly the switch between warm and cold states can be accomplished. While science can inform policymakers, it can’t determine policy.

MONTREAL, December 11, 2013 – On January 1, 2014, the international project “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013” (MPE2013) will continue as “Mathematics of Planet Earth” (MPE). The authors of the study defend their scenario thusly: "We have created a climate change scenario that although not the likely, is plausible, and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately". As Ars Technica notes, "This vote follows the committee's decision to cut the [National Science Foundation]'s geoscience budget and comes after a prominent attack on NASA's Earth sciences work during a Senate hearing, all of which suggests a concerted campaign against the researchers who, among other things, are telling us that climate change is a reality."
