Green Links: Top 2012 Climate Events

December 30th, 2012 | Posted by Claire Sommer in Green Links

2012 was the hottest year on record.

And wild. And wet. And deathly dry.

Here’s a wrap-up of 2012 climate events crowdsourced by a group of climate change scientists and environmental writers.

Of the several versions of this list that appeared around the web, I like this first version best. Mostly because the comments are relatively troll-free. So, 19 weather events of note.

For those who like their weather news neat and tidy, a more compact version from Wunderground’s head meteorologist, Dr. Jeff Masters.

So know we know what happened, what’s next?

National Public Radio interviewed 350.org founder and environmentalist Bill McKibben, on this very question.

Via NPR.org:

2013: A Tipping Year for Climate Change?

“We’ve already passed all kinds of tipping points,” McKibben, the founder of 350.org, tells weekends on All Things Considered host Jacki Lyden. “The NASA scientist Jim Hansen was saying, ‘There’s no other word for where we are now than planetary emergency.'”

Could this be the year where Climate Change action take off?

I sincerely hope so.
