    • Boston's Wicked Winter: A Case of Climate Extremes

      As we welcome spring this month, we bid a not-so-fond farewell to a tough winter in New England, where Boston's standing snowfall record got trounced—mostly in the span of a few February weeks. The new bar stands at over 9 feet. If your door wasn’t snowed shut, and you were able to trudge between shoulder-high snowbanks, you might have overheard one or two of your neighbors questioning “global warming” amid endless hours shoveling, and re-shoveling, snow. The daily weather matters to how we perceive and understand Earth's changing climate. And so it’s understandable when weeks of sub-freezing temperatures and freakishly-high snow drifts sow doubt about whether the planet is getting warmer. Jack Spengler, our Center’s Director, and Teresa Chahine, our Program Leader for Social Entrepreneurship, sat down to put The Winter of 2015 into the context of climate change, and were kind enough to let us listen in. In their conversation, they point to Boston’s heavy snows as an example of how greenhouse gases can drive more extreme weather, which can bring an entire region to its knees. In Boston, public transit came screeching to a halt, leaving businesses and workers idle. Facebook newsfeeds lit up with snowed-in parents lamenting day upon day at home, sentenced to watching Frozen, as snow days extended into snow weeks. Also left idle was our city’s economy. Our advisory board member Frank Nutter appeared on NPR’s On Point, to talk about Tallying Up The High Costs of Extreme Weather. It’s worth a listen. Jack and Teresa noted that what happens locally cannot be assumed to be happening globally: While the surge of cold weather blew into New England (and as far away as Florida and Texas), western states such as California, New Mexico, and Arizona experienced unusually warm temperatures. Washington State, which usually sports a climate similar to the one we are accustomed to in Massachusetts, didn’t receive enough snow to replenish its watershed, which will likely lead to water shortages this summer and could leave crops thirsty. And so the coasts become two ends of the climate spectrum: too hot and dry in the West, and too cold and wet in the East. The wicked winter of 2015 paints all too clear a picture of a topsy-turvy climate that is expected to warp further in coming years. Boston is now back on its feet—the subway is running, and the snow is nearly gone. We have a way to go in making this city resilient to climate change, and this past winter taught us some good—and hard—lessons on how to get there.

          Junto a la WWF y la Secretaría de Ambiente, emprendimos el reto experimental de conocer qué es lo que piensan los niños acerca del calentamiento global y sus soluciones. Sus interesantes respuestas fueron reproducidas el 28 de marzo de 2015 en la Plaza de San Francisco. Una hora se apagaron las luces de iglesias y monumentos para darle un respiro al planeta. Agradecemos a todos quienes estuvieron involucrados en el proyecto.

            • WH Rally v. Arctic Drilling: Global Warming Is 'Absolutely' 'Settled Science' Despite Chief Scientist's Remarks


              from Monica Sanchez / Added

              On Wednesday, marking the 26th anniversary of the catastrophic Exxon Valdez oil spill, protestors gathered in front of the White House to rally against oil drilling in the Arctic. Among other organizations, Greenpeace USA sponsored the event, demanding that the government protect the Arctic, its wildlife, and the climate with further offshore drilling restrictions. In light of recent remarks from Greenpeace USA co-founder and scientist Dr. Patrick Moore about his skepticism towards climate change, MRCTV’s Monica Sanchez asked participants a few questions about their cause. *The views, opinions and positions expressed by authors and commentators are theirs alone, and do not necessarily reflect my own.*

                  The Ballad of Holland Island House is a short animation made with an innovative clay-painting technique in which a thin layer of oil-based clay comes to vibrant life frame by frame. Animator Lynn Tomlinson tells the true story of the last house on a sinking island in the Chesapeake Bay. Told from the house's point of view, this film is a soulful and haunting view of the impact of sea-level rise.
