UN Climate Change Learning Partnership Releases Learning Resources Guides on Climate Change Science

The UN Climate Change Learning Partnership released two resource guides to help people understand the science of climate change. The two guides provide a tour of the best & most relevant resources on climate change science.

Sea surface temperatures are up. So why haven't forecasters declared El Niño conditions? 

This webinar will examine how variations in the tropical Pacific can affect high-latitude regions such as Alaska.

One of ENSO’s most important influences is to the Indian Monsoon—the large-scale circulation pattern that brings the Indian subcontinent the vast majority of its yearly rainfall. And while La Niñas tend to increase monsoon rainfall, the monsoon’s relationship with El Niño can be a little more complicated.  

Four 2-day workshops for Native Americans covering the basics of climate science, climate change, planning tools, & vulnerability assessments.

Climate Change: Evidence & Causes

A team of climate scientists from The National Academy of Sciences and The Royal Society have produced a new report for decision makers, policy makers, educators, and other individuals seeking authoritative information on climate science.

Switch to Natural Gas Power Plants Reduces Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Power plants that use natural gas release far less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide than coal-fired power plants, according to a new study from CIRES and NOAA scientists.

The National Academy of Sciences and The Royal Society will discuss the release of "Climate Change: Evidence & Causes," a new publication produced jointly by the two institutions.
