What Uncertainties Remain in Climate Science? Aerosols over the globe. How will they affect climate change? Photo: NASA The favored refrain of climate deniers and those who oppose climate policies is that “the science is not settled.” To some degree, this is true. Climate scientists are still uncertain about a number of phenomena. But it is the nature of science to never be settled — science is always a work in progress, constantly refining its ideas as new information arrives. Certain evidence, however, is clear: global temperatures are rising, and humans are playing a role in it. And just because…

How Do We Clean Up All That Ocean Plastic? Photo: NOAA’s National Ocean Service There are currently 75 to 199 million tons of plastic polluting our oceans, according to the World Economic Forum. This is a result of humans recycling only nine percent of plastic waste and dumping 10 million tons of it into the seas each year. If we continue on this path, the annual flow of plastic into the ocean could triple by 2040 as plastic production continues to increase. Marine plastic pollution may be costing the world economy trillions of dollars every year because it affects fisheries,…
