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...

Thanks to global warming, Antarctica is starting to turn green 19.5.2017 Denver Post: National News Headlines

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...

Experts fear ‘quiet springs’ as songbirds can’t keep up with climate change 16.5.2017 Headlines: All Headlines
In 1962, Rachel Carson warned that pesticides, particularly DDT, would lead to springs without birdsong, as she wrote in her book "Silent Spring." Carson's forecast kick-started an environmental movement and was instrumental in the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to ban the pesticides 10 years later, so her descriptions of deathly quiet did not come to pass.

Alaska's tundra is worsening climate change 9.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Even as the Trump administration weighs withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement, a new scientific paper has documented growing fluxes of greenhouse gases streaming into the air from the Alaskan tundra, a long-feared occurrence that could worsen climate change. The new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, suggests that frozen northern soils - often called permafrost - are unleashing an increasing amount of carbon dioxide into the air as t... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Letter of the Week: Aquifer research needs federal funding 30.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
As a groundwater geologist working in rural Utah, I can vouch for Byron Ruby and Neil Longo’s commentary on how farmers (and ranchers), who overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump in the last election, consider climate change (“What’s more conservative than reverence for Earth?,” April 23). “Talk to them about climate change and chances are they’ll roll their eyes. But ask about how to deal with groundwater shortages or prolonged droughts, and you’ll have their attention.” As a scientist, as the a...

At least global warming may get Americans off the couch more 24.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Global warming’s milder winters will likely nudge Americans off the couch more in the future, a rare, small benefit of climate change, a new study finds. With less chilly winters, Americans will be more likely to get outdoors, increasing their physical activity by as much as 2.5 percent by the end of the century, according to a new study in Monday’s edition of the journal Nature Human Behaviour . Places like North Dakota, Minnesota and Maine are likely to see the most dramatic incre...

Scientists leave labs, take to streets to defend research 22.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Scientists worldwide left their labs to take to the streets Saturday along with students and research advocates in pushing back against what they say are mounting attacks on science. The March for Science, coinciding with Earth Day, was set for more than 500 cities, anchored in Washington and to be joined by dozens of nonpartisan scientific professional societies in a turnout intended to combine political and how-to science demonstrations. Marchers in Geneva carried signs that said,...
