A research looked at people’s tweets during historically hot or cold weather to see how they responded. It took tweeters just five years to normalize once-extreme temperatures.
A new study finds we are pumping CO2 into the atmosphere at a rate nine to 10 times higher than the greenhouse gas was emitted during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, a global warming event that occurred 56 million years ago.
Climate change has already led the owners of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault aka the Doomsday Vault to plunk millions of dollars into renovations to keep up with climate change.
