Increased CO2 Levels Negatively Affect Our Brains

Something that isn't often discussed is the non-greenhouse impacts of increasing atmospheric CO2. One of those is that increased CO2 levels affect human cognition, so I've summarized some of the research here.

Pro-Coal And Pro-Life Are Incompatible Positions

An interesting situation exists in the US. The pro-life and pro-coal factions are both part of the GOP. I understand that we only have two parties at the national level in the US so you have to pick the one that you most align with, but the GOP should drop its pro-coal stance if it wants to keep its pro-life stance.

Atmospheric CO2 Levels Are Accelerating

I see atmospheric CO2 levels plotted vs year pretty regularly, but I realized that I don't recall seeing how much it actually changes each year so here's that...

US Energy Usage By Type

You hear a lot about the death of coal and the rise of renewables, but I haven't seen the data in a format that I've really liked so I put that together.

Can We Stop Global Warming?

There are a massive number of articles out there about global warming and the Paris agreement. The goal was to stay under 1.5 degrees of warming and our absolute limit was 2.0 degrees of warming. I rarely, if ever, see articles that talk about the feasibility of any of this though, and I figured I'd write my blunt assessment.

Tool For Visualizing Our Carbon Budget

I've added a new tool that lets you visualize our carbon budget in a way that I haven't seen before (I've seen this type of visualization...not a tool that lets you play with it).
