This is what the East Coast of the United States could look like in a few hundred years, according to a graphic artist who put together a map of the world after 260 feet of sea rise. Go see what your region of the world would look like - Another writer and artist put together images of what your city would look like if it were drowned.

'Extremely likely': Humans blamed more clearly than ever for global warming
(Photo: Reuters file)
A group of top climate scientists found in a new report that human beings needs to limit all man-made carbon emissions below a total of 1 trillion tons in order to limit climate change – and noted that the planet had already reached half that amount by 2011.

This oughta raise the temperature in the room a few degrees. No, I’m not talking about the situation itself—I’m referring to the discourse.

America underwater: Artist Nickolay Lamm has created a series of striking images depicting what coastal cities in America will look like over the next several centuries if ocean levels continue to rise at their current rates (between 1992 and 2012, that’d be roughly one inch per decade). The images above are of San Francisco’s AT&T Park and Boston Harbor in 300 years, at which point they’ll be immersed in 25 feet of water.  (Images credit: Nickolay Lamm; higher resolution images posted at Business Insidersource

Rapid Arctic sea ice loss is probably the most visible indicator of global climate change; it leads to shifts in ecosystems and economic access, and potentially impacts weather throughout the northern hemisphere.
James Overland, of the NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory • Speaking on summertime Arctic ice levels, and how they portend the future of climate change. According to Overland, the time when the Arctic will see a nearly ice-free summer is creeping faster than expected — likely in advance of 2050, and perhaps sometime over the next two decades. His full report, authored with NOAA colleague Muyin Wang, was published online for Geophysical Research Letters, and is available to read heresource

From our just-released report on attitudes towards global warming, climate change and the Keystone XL Pipeline.

It’s worth remembering that the Democratic coalition isn’t unified on the causes of climate change to nearly the extent they are on the question of its existence. After all, it isn’t just a cabal of northeastern, urban liberals — it’s also the party of coal-state senators and representatives like Senator Joe Manchin.
