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.

Marchers in Geneva carried signs that said,...

Oman's mountains may hold clues for reversing climate change 13.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Wadi Abdah, Oman • Deep in the jagged red mountains of Oman, geologists are searching for an efficient and cheap way to remove carbon dioxide from the air and oceans — and perhaps begin to reverse climate change. They are coring samples from one of the world’s only exposed sections of the Earth’s mantle to uncover how a spontaneous natural process millions of years ago transformed carbon dioxide into limestone and marble. As the world mobilizes to confront climate change, the main focus has been...

Bob and Sarah Woodmansee: Climate change and the economy 4.4.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Our climate is changing. Average, daily temperatures are rising. Floods from unexpected and intense storms are more frequent. Warmer and shorter snow seasons are occurring. Road maintenance is becoming more costly. Wildfire frequency and intensity is increasing. These and other changes will continue to have impacts on economically important industries for Western Colorado such as ranching, farming, winter and summer recreation, wildlife populations (hunting and tourism), water quality supporting fisheries and municipalities, stream and river flows and timing, tourism loss due to wildfires, and more. Declining quality of experiences for tourists and outdoor recreationalists are key economic concerns for our economy. These realities are explicitly discussed In “Climate Smart Agriculture,” an article published in the March/April 2016 issue of the Colorado Water Center Newsletter (Volume 33, Issue 1)." The climate change research community, policymakers and water and other resource managers desperately need ...

Op-ed: Human-caused climate change is real, and denying it hurts all of us 19.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The new head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Mr. Scott Pruitt, recently stated that he “would not agree that [carbon dioxide] is a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.” This is in direct contradiction of scientific findings over the past several decades. As scientists who study this problem, we would like to summarize the current consensus among the vast majority of researchers: 1. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the primary long-lived greenhouse gas that warms the Earth’s ...

Letter: Reagan knew the importance of basic research 17.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Repudiating virtually the entire scientific community, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said, “I would not agree that [CO2’s] a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.” Rep. Carlos Curbelo, Republican chairman of the House Climate Solutions Caucus, sides with science. “Rising carbon emissions have been a contributing factor to climate change for decades. That is a scientific fact and the reality facing communities like my district. The EPA is tasked with the very responsibility of h...

Watch out: Mammals shrink when Earth heats up, study says 16.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Global warming shrank certain animals in the ancient past, and scientists worry it could happen again. Warm-blooded animals got smaller at least twice in Earth’s history when carbon dioxide levels soared and temperatures spiked as part of a natural warming, a new study says. University of New Hampshire researcher Abigail D’Ambrosia warned that mammals — but not people — could shrivel in the future under even faster man-made warming. “It’s something we need to keep an eye out for,” s... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Study: Stopping global warming only way to save coral reefs 16.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Sydney • Reducing pollution and curbing overfishing won’t prevent the severe bleaching that is killing coral at catastrophic rates, according to a study of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. In the end, researchers say, the only way to save the world’s coral from heat-induced bleaching is with a war on global warming. Scientists are quick to note that local protection of reefs can help damaged coral recover from the stress of rising ocean temperatures. But the new research shows that such efforts a...
