NOAA Coastal Services Center's Climate Adaptation Blog
The NOAA Coastal Services Center’s (CSC) Climate Adaptation Blog features information about current climate-related events and offers best practices for helping your community adapt. The March 19th post links to a physorg.com article about storm surge frequency and climate change. According to the MIT-Princeton University study highlighted in the article, storms impacting the coast with a storm surge capable of causing a 100-year flood event could happen as frequently as every three to 20 years, and a 500-year flood event every 25 to 240 years with a changing climate.

NASA Gives Kids Their Own Guide to Climate Change
A blinking red-eyed tree frog and flitting butterfly greet visitors to the new NASA Climate Kids website. Targeting grades 4-6, this kid-friendly guide de-mystifies one of the most important science issues of our time. The site answers the “ Big Questions” about global climate change using simple illustrations, humor, interactivity, and age-appropriate language. For example, one interactive feature is the Climate Time Machine, which reveals how global changes have affected or will affect our planet over time. “Climate Tales” has animal cartoon characters coping more or less good humoredly with the effects humans are having on their habitats. A collection of Earth-science-related games offers such experiences as “Wild Weather Adventure” and “Missions to Planet Earth.” A Green Careers section.

“350 is the red line for human beings, the most important number on the planet. The most recent science tells us that unless we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, we will cause huge and irreversible damage to the earth.”
