    As climate change creates new temperature and precipitation patterns, the ranges that some species occupy -- particularly in mountainous areas like the Sierra Nevada -- are changing. Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have been re-surveying birds and mammals at sites in California that were first surveyed nearly 100 years ago by Joseph Grinnell. The results show how species' ranges have shifted in association with climate change. At the same time, staff at Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park are working to apply the science to park management and to engage the public in understanding what change means for future biodiversity in the park.

      This animation was produced by a group of educators during a CAM Project Professional Development Workshop in June 2013. Educators were given a scenario describing a climate change feedback system and asked to create a brief animation depicting it. They were given about 4 hours to complete the project, including learning about the system, planning their animation, setting up the materials, filming their project, writing and recording a narration, and editing their final product.

                      Climate Change has become such an overriding emergency that some people are willing to consider Geoengineering--intentional, human-directed manipulation of the Earth's climatic systems--as an alternative. Lisa Dilling discusses what geoengineering is and what some technologies are being cionsidered.
