Deep Dive: Navigating Climate Unraveling

Deep Dive 2

Surface temperatures on Earth are now warmer than at any time in the last 120,000 years, and the greenhouse gas emissions responsible for the majority of recent warming continue to hit new records year after year. As industrial society is poised to blow past the 1.5ºC warming target and likely the 2ºC threshold that nations set to avoid runaway climate change, many of us are faced with urgent questions about how best to navigate climate unraveling. Questions like: Should we focus on trying to stop further warming or build resilience? How can we as individuals make a tangible impact when the crisis is so large and complex? How will the climate crisis affect other social and environmental challenges, and vice versa?

This Deep Dive will provide:

  • An honest, up-to-date analysis from leading climate scientists and civil society leaders of where we currently stand with global warming, potential pathways, and probable risks.
  • Lessons from our planetary past that can help us navigate coming changes to the climate system.
  • Inspiration, models, and recommendations for meaningful action at the household, community, and national/global levels.
  • Opportunities to share and learn from peers about approaches and projects being developed or adopted in other communities.
  • Curated resources for further study and to take meaningful action in your own life.

INTERVIEW

Looking at the Planetary Past to Prepare for Our Climate Changed Future—An Interview with Steven Earle

Post Carbon Institute Senior Fellow and author Richard Heinberg interviews Steven Earle, PhD, author of Runaway Climate: What the Geological Past Can Tell Us about the Coming Climate Change Catastrophe. Steven shares with Richard what we can learn from events in our planet’s history – particularly the rapid global temperature increase of about 7ºC roughly 56 million years ago – to better understand and prepare for a rapidly unraveling climate system.

Navigating Climate Catastrophe: Part 1 - The Predicament

People have all sorts of different interpretations on what’s happening with climate change. While some are practicing denial or willful ignorance, even those following the science can be confused. After all, Earth’s climate system is complex. Richard Heinberg cuts through this complexity by putting climate change into the context of humanity’s energy history and by unpacking some recent research on the likely consequences of global warming this century and beyond.
