Scientists Debate Extreme Weather Events & GHG Emissions….Urban Planners and Transportation Engineers Must Implement Innovative Sustainable Transportation & Landuse Policies

Scientists Debate Extreme Weather Events and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions. However, Urban Planners and Transportation Engineers Must Implement Innovative Sustainable Transportation and Landuse Policies Solutions to Address the Mobility Needs in Cities: Cities provide good opportunity for jobs and better life for growing population. Cities are also major contributors to GHG and other harmful emissions which must be reduced to sustain quality of life for all. Continue reading Scientists Debate Extreme Weather Events & GHG Emissions….Urban Planners and Transportation Engineers Must Implement Innovative Sustainable Transportation & Landuse Policies

Exploring America’s, and the World’s, Energy Choices

Fresh explorations of energy options, from fracking to conservation.......The New York Times sponsored a “Energy For Tomorrow” forum this week to clarify the country’s and world’s energy options in an era of economic turbulence and a changing climate.

800,000 years of abrupt climate variability: Earth’s climate is capable of very rapid transitions

800,000 years of abrupt climate variability: Earth's climate is capable of very rapid transitions An international team of scientists has produced a prediction of what climate records from Greenland might look like over the last 800,000 years. The team's reconstruction is based on the much longer ice core temperature record retrieved from Antarctica and uses a mathematical formulation to extend the Greenland record beyond its current limit.
