On April 19th, 2012, Climate Central's Ben Strauss testified before the Senate committee on Energy and Natural Resources on the impact of sea level rise.
Sample coverage of the national report called Surging Seas, which has recalculated the risk of flooding to coastal communities across America.
As the land loses its struggle with the sea, it's time for new tools to learn just how climate change and sea level rise will effect the coastal U.S.
Some in Florida who lived through Katrina now are preparing for climate change-related disasters they fear could be more damaging than a hurricane.
Dr. JÃƒÂ¸rgen Peder Steffensen explained the goals of the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling project and what the ice cores can tell us about our climate history.
With temperatures rising, evidence of change above and below the surface.
Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9 degrees F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.
An international team of climate scientists, working on the NEEM research project, has just completed their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile deep vertical core of solid ice in Greenland, looking for clues about ancient and future climates. In July of 2009, Dr. Heidi Cullen traveled to Greenland with a production team from StormCenter Communications to visit the team, and discuss their findings.
