The Document Library

category

If you’ve browsed through our continuously updated documents, you’ll have appreciated their breadth of scope and their seriousness.

We have peer reviewed international references that are often overlooked in mainstream media and other climate sites.

We have documents that criticise things that haven’t worked, and since we’ve concentrated on science and tried to factor out ideology, some of our documents may seem controversial.

Thirteen documents in the library in the category Sea

Sea: The sea has been the largest GHG sink, however, this has led to acidification, with various nefarious effects on certain sea life. In addition, warming causing ice melt, along with sea expansion is leading to sea rise which puts into peril coasts, coastal cities, and coastal activities. Recently, several alarming reports are predicting that sea rise has been significantly underestimated.

The State of the Climate report series is an authoritative annual summary of the global climate. Published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, the report is edited by scientists at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. The 2015 report is based on contributions from more than 450 scientists from 62 countries, drawing on tens of thousands of measurements of Earth's climate. moreless

Data resources related to climate change that can help prepare America’s communities, businesses, and citizens. There is data and resources related to coastal flooding, food resilience, water, ecosystem vulnerability, human health, energy infrastructure, transportation and the Arctic region. Over time, additional data and tools relevant to other climate-related impacts will be added. moreless

The ice held in the Antarctic Ice Sheet has the potential to cause significant changes in sea level in the future, which will affect many people around the world. As a result, it is important that people have an awareness of the impact of a changing climate on the world's ice sheets, but this complex system is difficult to understand and predict. moreless

De 2008 à 2011, une pause apparente du réchauffement global semblait sonner le glas de la thèse du changement climatique, pourtant prouvée par le recul historique de la banquise arctique en 2007 et le triplement constaté du rythme de montée des eaux au vingtième siècle (30 cm au lieu de 10 cm par siècle durant les 50 siècles précédents). moreless
