Not only that, but there’s also evidence to suggest that climate change plays a role in the plunging of the polar vortex.
Australia, by the way, has been dangerously hot. In an article on the front page of Wednesday’s print edition, our colleague Somini Sengupta took the global view, telling us to get used to “weather in the age of extremes.”
We also looked at a new study suggesting that plants under the stress of climate change might absorb less carbon dioxide. That’s bad news: We’ll need all the help from plants that we can get. “We have this image of the planet getting very, very green as we move into the future,” an author of the study told Kendra, “but it may be the opposite.”
And while China has said it will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, Somini tells us about a new study showing that the country, the planet’s coal juggernaut, is not meeting its own regulations to reduce methane emissions from its many coal plants.
Back in the United States, the government shutdown is over, but President Trump insists that the fight for a border wall is not. If he does find a way to extend the physical barrier farther across the southern border, experts warn, the result could be disastrous for wildlife.
Now, here’s something to think about if you’re staying home, bundling up and watching TV today:
One thing you can do: Upgrade your DVR
By Tik Root
Still, as of 2017, set-top boxes in the United States were using about seven large power plants’ worth of electricity each year, Mr. Horowitz said.
He’d like to see more app-based services instead of boxes. And there has already been some movement in that direction. Sling and YouTube TV, for example, provide television over the internet. These apps are delivered either directly through a smart TV or via devices like Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire, which use under 25 kW-h per year. That’s an eighth of what a modern DVR box uses.
“This is where the technology is going,” and it will be good for the environment, Mr. Horowitz said.
The #10YearChallenge becomes a climate meme
Many posts, like the one below from the German soccer star Mesut Özil, have included side-by-side photographs of an unidentified iceberg, supposedly taken a decade apart.
Though the origin of those photos isn’t clear, it’s true that near-record sea ice minimums have now occurred every year for the past 12 years, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s most recent Arctic Report Card.
“What will the Arctic look like in 10 more years?” Leonardo DiCaprio wrote on Instagram alongside photos of melting ice caps from 100 years ago and today. Manish Bapna, executive vice president of the World Resources Institute, a think tank in Washington, tweeted side-by-side global temperature maps from the 19th and 21st centuries, calling climate change “the biggest #10YearChallenge.”
And the Kenya office of the environmental group World Wildlife Fund used the meme to tweet some good news: the ongoing restoration of Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake northwest of Nairobi that a decade ago was hard-hit by problems including deforestation and soil erosion.
Edward Maibach, director of the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University, said social media discussions were probably not as conducive as in-person conversations to shaping opinions about the warming of the planet. But, he wrote in an email, “The notion of a #10YearChallenge is a particularly interesting conversation to start, because it easily brings both urgency and opportunity into the conversation.”
Here are a few more climate takes on the #10YearChallenge:
