Shifts in Climate Shifting Sea Turtles
The sex of sea turtles is determined by its environment. Hot weather produces more females, while cooler temperatures make more males. With global warming and more summers of droughts, scientists like Jeanette Wyneken are seeing a dangerous shift in the pattern toward females.

Sea level rise is so much more than melting ice
While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

How Bangladesh has adapted to climate change | The Economist
Bangladesh is highly susceptible to climate change. Floods, cyclones and droughts are likely to increase as the Earth warms. Poor farmers are already trying to adapt. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2Hea5EK Melting glaciers, droughts, rising sea-levels - these are just some of the environmental disruptions that are likely to worsen with climate change. But dangerous climate change is not just something that might happen in the future. The earth is already warmed by almost 1 degree Celsius since the dawn of the Industrial Age - the effects are already being felt now. Vulnerable communities are trying to adapt. Bangladesh is more at risk from climate change than almost any other country. It's prone to flooding, cyclones and drought. Climate change may already be exacerbating those things. Bangladesh sits at the bottom of a Delta plane were three main rivers converge. It's straddled by the melting Himalayan glaciers in the north and the rising waters of the Bay of Bengal in the south. That makes it highly susceptible to flooding. In 2009, cyclone Aila tore through Bangladesh, uprooting trees, flattening homes and destroying crops. Along the southern coastal regions the storm left behind salty water in areas it had inundated. Fields that had once support agriculture were deemed useless. To adapt to their newly saline environment, locals have had to change their source of food production. Through a project funded by the World Bank villagers have switched to raising crabs which thrive in saltwater. Villagers rear the crabs and sell them at a local market where they're then resold by buyers who shipped them to Dakha. Adding to this problem, in some areas farmers deliberately inundate their lands with salty water so they can farm shrimp rather than crops, which is more profitable but problematic for the environment. But the salinity creates another daunting problem - it pollutes local groundwater and makes it more difficult to access safe drinking water. Climate change is worsening this effect. Cyclones are more common, river flow has diminished, and salty water from the Bay of Bengal has been reaching ever farther into the coastal lands travelling up rivers and polluting freshwater supplies that are used for drinking and irrigation. NGOs working with the Community Climate Change Project has sought to address this problem. They've provided water tanks so locals can harvest rainwater and have helped fund a desalination plant that provides clean drinking water. In the north of the country, local livelihoods have also been threatened by water. Many villagers are beholden to the rivers. When the rivers flood, the soil used for agriculture has disappeared. Not only have they lost their homes and their crops but also their means of survival. In Ranpur, villagers have learned a new farming technique that works on sandbars or chars where all the soil has been eroded. Farmers dig out holes in the char fill them with compost and plant pumpkins. Pumpkins are preserved and can be sold during the rainy season providing income throughout the year. Adaptation projects such as the ones being carried out in Bangladesh have had a huge impact on those involved but Bangladesh is not the only place where the effects of climate change are already being felt and adapted to. Rotterdam is building floating pavilions to pilot a city that rises with its sea levels. London will improve the Thames Barrier so it can better protect the city from floods. A decade ago adaptation was almost taboo in international discussions about climate change because it was believed to distract attention from the vital task of stopping global warming altogether. Now those are recognized as important. But can keep them in poor countries like Bangladesh adapt quickly enough? We don't know yet. Richer countries are better able to withstand the potential shocks that climate change will bring. If change is slow enough, it gives people more time to act and increases the odds of success. World leaders tend to talk about stopping climate change. It would help poor farmers enormously if it could only be slowed down. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

I don't have my notes with me so I can't give you my source for the $28 billion. So let's look at a couple of other ratios. According to the website of ITER (the Experimental Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), if all the manufacturing is done in Europe the estimated cost of building ITER, supported by the United States, the European Union, India, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea, has been estimated at approximately $14.4 billion (at April 2016 exchange rates.) That's around a third the estimated cost of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico ($42 billion)." (SOURCE: http://www.iter.org/faq#Do_we_really_know_how_much_ITER_will_cost) "Based on the European evaluation, we can estimate the cost of ITER construction for the seven members at approximately EUR 13 billion, if all the manufacturing is done in Europe." ) Or, looking at it another way, the cost of building the National Ignition Facility -- a key research project into nuclear fusion -- was less that 10% of the cost of the BP oil spill.

The Hidden Impacts of Climate Change
Diplomats from around the world have spent more than 20 years trying unsuccessfully to hammer out a United Nations agreement on climate change. This year, which is on track to be the hottest ever recorded, they’re gathering in Paris to give it another shot. Warmer temperatures and rising seas are already changing the environment. But what sort of impact will these changes have on humans, plants, and animals? VICE News met Shyla Raghav, a UN delegate for the Maldives, an island nation threatened by rising sea levels, to discuss the issue.

Kiribati: a drowning paradise in the South Pacific | DW Documentary
Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, "There used to be a large village here with 70 families." But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it's all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won't stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: "The industrialized countries -- the United States, China, and Europe -- use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?" Kiribati's government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don't want to leave. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Bernie Sanders Grills Trump’s EPA Pick Wheeler on Climate Change | NowThis
Trump’s pick to lead the EPA refused to affirm the scientific community on climate change — and Bernie wasn’t having it. » Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe Bernie called out Trump’s EPA pick for saying global warming isn’t a huge issue. Bernie: Trump has indicated his belief that climate change is a hoax, perhaps perpetrated by the Chinese. Do you agree? Wheeler: Well, I believe that climate change is real. I believe that man has an impact on it and… Bernie: The President has said that climate change is a hoax. Do you agree with him? Wheeler: I have not used the hoax word myself. Bernie: I see. Andrew Wheeler, a former fossil fuel lobbyist, was picked by Trump to run the EPA after former chief Scott Pruitt resigned in scandal. Wheeler has already cut Obama’s environmental protections. Bernie: Leading scientists around the world, looking at many many hundreds of reports, have indicated that we have 12 years in order to stop the worst impacts of climate change and what they are talking about are rising sea levels, more drought, more extreme weather disturbances, more wildfires, more migrations of people. Do you agree with the scientific community that climate change is a global crisis that must be addressed in an aggressive way? Wheeler: I believe that climate change is a global issue that must be addressed globally. No one country can — Bernie: That wasn't my question, sir. I don't have a lot of time and I would appreciate if you're answering the questions. The scientific community has said that climate change is one of the great crises facing our planet and if there is not unprecedented action to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to sustainable energy and energy efficiency, there will be irreparable damage in the United States and in virtually every country on earth. Do you agree with the scientific community? Wheeler: I would not call it the greatest crisis, no sir, I I consider it a huge issue that has to be addressed globally. Bernie: I found it interesting, Mr. Wheeler, you are the nominee to be head of the Environmental Protection Agency. You just in your opening statement did not mention the word climate change. Now how does that happen that the nominee to be head of the Environmental Protection Agency does not mention the words climate change at a time when the scientific community thinks that climate change is the great environmental crisis facing this planet. Should the American people have confidence that you are going to help us deal with this global crisis? The scientific community tells us that we have a crisis and that we need unprecedented action to dramatically reduce carbon emissions, not only in this country, but around the world. Now we are the strongest economy in the world. And if the leadership of the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States says to China and to Russia and to India and to countries all over the world that we have got to move aggressively to protect this planet for our children and our grandchildren, we can have some impact on the entire international community. Are you prepared to do that? Wheeler: I am — we are implementing the laws that Congress has passed. Bernie: But you are the leader. We need you to come here we — Wheeler: We will implement those. Bernie: Well, that's not what I'm talking about. We have people over here who do not believe that climate change is even real. But you are the nominee for the leadership of the Environmental Protection Agency. Will you provide the leadership in this country, and the world, to say that we are concerned about the future of this planet for our kids and our grandchildren? Wheeler: We are concerned about the future of this planet for children and our grandchildren. Bernie: Is rising sea levels a concern? Or is that a hoax? Wheeler: Rising sea levels is a concern and we believe in adaptation and we are looking at a number of things — Bernie: Adaptations? I’m sorry, adaptation? Wheeler: Adaptation to help on rising sea levels and that's absent additional congressional authority. Bernie: But you want — here’s the point: We have people who don't believe in climate change, but you are going to be the leader, perhaps, of the Environmental Protection. #BernieSanders #ClimateChange #EPA #AndrewWheeler #Politics Connect with NowThis » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat NowThis is your premier news outlet providing you with all the videos you need to stay up to date on all the latest in trending news.

Our Rising Oceans (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 1)
Our oceans are rising. With human use of hydrocarbons skyrocketing, waters around the globe are getting hotter and, now, this warm sub-surface water is washing into Antarctica’s massive western glaciers causing the glaciers to retreat and break off. Antarctica holds 90% of the world’s ice and 70% of its freshwater, so if even a small fraction of the ice sheet in Antarctica melts, the resulting sea level rise will completely remap the world as we know it – and it is already happening. In the last decade, some of the most significant glaciers here have tripled their melt rate. VICE founder Shane Smith travels to the bottom of the world to investigate the instability of the West Antarctic ice sheet and to see first hand how the continent is melting -- and VICE follows the rising oceans to Bangladesh for a glimpse into the world's underwater future. From the UN Climate conference to the People's Climate March to the forces that deny the science of global climate change, this special extended episode covers all sides of the issue and all corners of the globe, ending with a special interview with Vice President Joe Biden.

Climate Change Formula:  Rising Sea Levels + Coastal Megacities = Forced Migration | Parag Khanna
If global temperatures rise by just four degrees celsius, the forecast is cloudy with a chance of obliteration. Khanna’s latest book is Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization (http://goo.gl/fUVuXR). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/parag-khanna-on-climate-change-and-connectivity Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - If global temperatures rise four degrees Celsius above the 1990 baseline temperature level used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, and that may happen by 2040, 2050 or around that time based on present temperature sort of rise trajectory. That would have a very devastating impact on global food production. Right now the countries of the world that are the largest food producers such as the United States, Brazil, China, India, Australia – if the temperature rise by four degrees Celsius several decades from now it could be that the food production is generally wiped out in many of those geographies because of desertification, crop failure and so forth. Already there’s a lack of sufficient water irrigation and fresh water supply for agriculture in Australia. We see water tables falling in the western United States and so forth. Meanwhile if temperatures do rise to that degree and in fact temperatures rise the fastest in the northern latitudes of the world and the southern latitudes in other words at the poles. Whereas sea levels rise fastest at the equator. And so what we’ll find is that in a world that’s four degrees Celsius warmer a large amount of the world’s food production is predicted to take place in today’s Canada and Russia. Now Canada and Russia are the two largest countries in the world by geographic territory. But they are also perhaps ironically two of the world’s most depopulated countries. Their populations are very small and very concentrated in very, very small areas. Most of the Canadian population for example lives very close to the United States border. And most of Russia’s population lives west of the Euro mountains very close to Eastern Europe. Whereas about six-sevenths of Russia’s territory, this vast geography known, a large chunk of it is known as Siberia for example is largely uninhabited. But if you project forward where food will be grown in a world that is that much warmer in fact these depopulated areas of Canada and Russia may be the world’s breadbaskets. The problem is there’s no people. And so of course we would have to think about who are the people who are going to live there? Might we need to have population transfers and mass migrations for people to work in the agricultural sector or to develop the agribusiness industries of these countries to feed the planet. Because after all it will not be the United States and Canada, the United States and China and India and Australia and Brazil that are feeding the world. It’ll be Canada and Russia that are feeding the world. So the food supply chain on a global basis is going to shift and move and become much more dependent on these northern geographies. And so this is the prediction that a number of scientists have made and that’s of course going to require a significant rethinking of the meaning of political geography when we depend so much on just two countries for our food.

In the increasingly damaged sea, one animal is thriving
Climate change, overfishing and pollution would naturally seem harmful for marine life. But one group of animals appears to be thriving: jellyfish. The blob-like creatures reproduce rapidly in higher temperatures and can prosper in waters tainted by human activity, such as the Gulf of Mexico’s oxygen-depleted “dead-zone.” Plus, declining fish populations mean reduced competition for food.

5 Places to Move to If You Are Worried About Climate Change (And 5 to Avoid!)
With Donald Trump announcing that the United States would pull out of the Paris climate accord, an international agreement to mitigate the effects of global warming, the topic of climate change has recently become a hot topic. (Pun intended.) In response, more than 180 U.S. mayors and 10 governors have pledged to abide by the framework of the accords and push for further actions to combat rising global temperatures. That got us wondering, where should you move to – or from – to best avoid the negative impact of climate change? Fortunately, scientists have a rough sketch, based on the manmade climate changes they foresee in the coming decades. Most of us tend to focus on the obvious: that fossil fuel emissions will continue to heat up the atmosphere, causing the polar icecaps to melt and sea levels to rise, ultimately swallowing low-lying coastal communities. But the accompanying and equally troublesome rising heat indexes, droughts, extreme precipitation, wildfires, flooding, tornadoes, category 4-5 hurricanes and even mosquito infestations may be of equal, or even greater, cause for concern, depending on your address. To compound the challenge of selecting a climate refuge, some cities have established programs and infrastructure to address global warming, while others ignore the topic entirely.

How much is sea level rising? Climate Change Impact on Mumbai & Kolkata
Please Like, Share and Subscribe our channel. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet: Sea Level the same all over the world? The news that is available to the people is mostly rumor, and you also know that there are no feet of rumor, that is why it spreads very fast. But global warming is such a thing which we can do to sweat. Do not know if you will ever notice or not. Miami is the city and it used to be all around this island. But this was the red plate which was also land on the same, but due to global warming, the water level of the sea came up so much, that is, according to the report, 20 feet water has come up there. So this is not just about here, but on every seafront of the world there is something like this on our earth. If India speaks of the UN, by 2050, more than 4 million people in India are at risk. Especially the people of Mumbai and Kolkata city. Together, Bangladesh and China will be the same. The Dhaka-Dhaka and Shanghai city of China will also be covered. Science also has indicated about the destruction of the Earth. That day is not far away when the Earth's dust will start from the 2 million 24 thousand miles of the earth with a moat in the sea. Because the melting snow of the Pole region has caused trouble to emerge. If you remember, a few weeks ago, a 5800 sq. Km large frost had broken apart in Antarctica. This is not a small thick iceberg, this iceberg is 4 times bigger than the heart of India. Its estimated weight is more than 1000 million tonnes. Due to the separation from Antarctica, this iceberg will now roam the ocean and there will be a danger for ships coming out there. NASA's Aqua Moody's Satellite has been monitoring the iceberg for a long time. Because in Antarctica, the crack was seen in the ice some time ago. Which means that at any place, a big piece of ice will be separated from Antarctica. Increasing temperature has caused an increase in the incidence of ice fragmentation in Antarctica. In the year 2000, ice fragment of 11000 square kilometers was separated, which was the biggest event till date. His name was A-68. If the look of the threat was seen in the iceberg, the Titanic ship collided with such a piece of ice and was devastated. Now the iceberg that breaks apart, keeps roaming in the water of the sea, and by changing its place again and again it will melt. From which the fragment of a big ice melt will come from the sea level of the countries near the equator. And many small island insides in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean will go to Dubai. Scientists in the North Antarctica research team say that in the state of the big ice only five big ice pieces remain. From that place called "Markham Ice Shield" was separated from the island of Ellesmere in August. In the last decade, due to the rest of the Earth, Antarctica has increased the temperature by a lot of speed, which is a huge problem. Because people have developed indiscriminate development, they have created problems for the earth itself. And if all the pigs in the Dhruv state get piggy in one go, then the entire sea level of the world will increase to 60 ft and also the coastal cities will be submerged in the water. By 2050, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines have the potential to increase the sea level, and all of them are 5 million 80 million, that is why many people are at risk. But more than that, most of the government in the world is ignoring this issue. As the time passes, the earth will continue to dwindle, and the sea will continue to grow. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music by : Fanfare for Space by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)
