Arctic Autumns To Warm A Staggering 23°F, NOAA Warns by 2100 under business as usual, reports Joe Romm at Climate Progress. Arctic springs will get about 9°F warmer, and this heating will certainly accelerate the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, which, when fully melted, will raise sea levels 20 feet. The study notes that the process could be slowed IF humanity undertook drastic cuts in carbon emissions… what better time to switch to clean renewable energy?
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
