U.S. scientists contradict Trump’s climate claims 9.8.2017 Denver Post: National News Headlines
As President Donald Trump touts new oil pipelines and pledges to revive the nation's struggling coal mines, federal scientists are warning that burning fossil fuels is already driving a steep increase in the United States of heat waves, droughts and floods.
Scientists say patches of dead trees along the east coast are ‘the most obvious indicator of climate change’ 1.8.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Port Republic, N.J. • They’re called “ghost forests” — dead trees along vast swaths of coastline invaded by rising seas, something scientists call one of the most visible markers of climate change. The process has occurred naturally for thousands of years, but it has accelerated in recent decades as polar ice melts and raises sea levels, scientists say, pushing salt water farther inland and killing trees in what used to be thriving freshwater plains. Efforts are underway worldwide to determine e...

Study finds aardvarks suffering as African climate heats up 31.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Johannesburg • Little is known about Africa’s elusive aardvarks, but new research says they are vulnerable to climate change like many other species. Hotter temperatures are taking their toll on the aardvark, whose diet of ants and termites is becoming scarcer in some areas because of reduced rainfall, according to a study released Monday. Drought in the Kalahari desert killed five out of six aardvarks that were being monitored for a year, as well as 11 others in the area, said researchers at th...

Climate change in the U.S. could help the rich and hurt the poor 30.6.2017 Denver Post: National News Headlines
Researchers have long warned that unmitigated climate change could cause severe financial hardship to the United States in coming decades. But a new study published Thursday in the journal Science details how global warming could disproportionately affect poor areas of the country, contributing to widening economic inequality among Americans.
Op-ed: Why it matters that you ‘believe in’ climate change 27.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
A surprising 7 percent of adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows. (I am not making this up.) An acknowledged 6 percent of adults believe the Apollo moon landings were a hoax. A shocking one third of people who have heard of the Holocaust believe it was a hoax or at least exaggerated. Most disturbingly, 55 percent of Utahns and 52 percent of Americans believe either that climate change is a hoax or that humans do not meaningfully contribute to it. NASA is among those reporting... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Mapping project tracks population and climate challenges for Moab, Colorado Plateau 12.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Flagstaff, Ariz. • Researchers are working on a mapping project that will chronicle climate change, population growth, oil drilling and other factors in an area that stretches across Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The research team from Northern Arizona University and the U.S. Geological Survey found that Flagstaff is among several areas considered a hotspot in the Colorado Plateau where high intensity land use overlaps with some of these factors, the Arizona Daily Sun reported. Other a...

Environmental studies don’t back Trump’s ‘U.S. cleanest’ claim 4.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • President Donald Trump said the United States “will continue to be the cleanest and most environmentally friendly country on Earth” as he announced a U.S. pullout from an international accord designed to curb climate change. But facts muddy that claim. Data show that the U.S. is among the dirtiest countries when it comes to heat-trapping carbon pollution. “The U.S. is well behind other countries in having the cleanest and most sustainable environment,” University of Michigan envir...

Scientists say rate of sea level rise nearly tripled since 1990 23.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
A new scientific analysis finds that the Earth’s oceans are rising nearly three times as rapidly as they were throughout most of the 20th century, one of the strongest indications yet that a much feared trend of not just sea level rise, but its acceleration, is now underway. “We have a much stronger acceleration in sea level rise than formerly thought,” said Sönke Dangendorf, a researcher with the University of Siegen in Germany who led the study along with scientists at institutions in Spain, F... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Stop hoping we can fix climate change by pulling carbon out of the air, scientists warn 23.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Scientists are expressing increasing skepticism that we’re going to be able to get out of the climate change mess by relying on a variety of large-scale land use and technical solutions that have been not only proposed, but often relied upon in scientific calculations. Two papers published last week debunk the idea of planting large volumes of trees to pull carbon dioxide out of the air — saying there just isn’t enough land available to pull it off — and also various other strategies for “carbon...

Researchers in Antarctica have discovered rapidly growing banks of mosses on the ice continent’s northern peninsula, providing striking evidence of climate change in the coldest and most remote parts of the planet. Amid the warming of the last 50 years, the scientists found two different species of mosses undergoing the equivalent of growth spurts, with mosses that once grew less than a millimeter per year, now growing over 3 millimeters per year on average. “People will think of Antarctica quit...
