The hacking of emails from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit in November rocked the world of climate change science, energized global warming skeptics, and threatened to derail policy negotiations at Copenhagen. These panelists, who differ on the scientific implications of the released emails, generally agree that the episode will have long-term consequences for the larger scientific community.
If you'd asked Ronald Prinn a decade ago whether human activity played a significant part in global warming, he would have given you an "equivocal" answer. Today, he is no longer straddling the line.
t took a crisis to shift Roger Angel's gaze from the stars back to Earth, but we may all benefit from his full attention, locked as it is on helping crack the problem of global warming.
MIT is working to solve many of the vexing challenges facing humanity. Amid increasing scientific evidence of global warming, MIT thought-leaders are focused squarely on climate change. On this challenge the Institute has work to do at home, according to a team of students working through MIT Sloan's Sustainability Lab. Team member Nick Hofmeister told correspondent Scott Rolph that even though MIT has an array of carbon-reduction opportunities, the famously decentralized Institute faces organizational hurdles. It's an illustration, says Hofmeister, that moving toward more a more sustainable enterprise is about more than identifying opportunities and calculating return on investment.
From PBS NOVA Next If there ever was a problem that’s hard to solve, it’s climate change. It’s a complex challenge requiring more expertise than any one person can possess—in-depth knowledge of the physics of the upper atmosphere, a firm grasp on the economics of technological innovation, and a thorough understanding of the psychology of human behavior change. What’s more, top-down approaches that have been tried for decades—like efforts to pass national legislation and to negotiate international agreements—while important, haven’t yet produced the kind of change scientists say is needed to avert climate change’s potential consequences. But there’s at least one reason for optimism. We now have a new—and potentially more effective—way of solving complex global challenges: online crowdsourcing. Millions of people around the world can now work together online to achieve a common goal at a scale and with a degree of collaboration that was never before possible.
