Earth from space

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres called the recent UN report on climate change a “code red for humanity.”   Among its many findings, “It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.”

Furthermore, greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide are the highest concentration in the atmosphere for at least 2 million years; methane and nitrous oxide are the most in more than 800,000 years; and our average temperature on earth is the warmest in at least 2,000 years. All are increasing steadily.

This talk will project where we are going, what we should expect, and what we can do about it.
