In October, @fema and @NASA hosted the "Alliances for Climate Action" virtual forum series, with thought leaders from across agencies discussing how we can work together to confront the challenges of a changing climate. Details ⬇️…
If only the United States reduced emissions, the country would experience the large majority of those benefits.
The research shows reducing global emissions over the next 50 years would prevent millions of premature deaths, hospitalizations and emergency room visits, lost workdays, incidences of dementia, and crop losses in the U.S.
Air quality improvements resulting from a worldwide reduction in greenhouse gas emissions would benefit human health and prevent economic losses, according to new research by scientists from @NASA, @DukeU, and @Columbia.…

The "LOWESS Smooth," or "LOESS Smooth" (orange line), helps you see a general trend line among "noisy" data points.
#ICYMI: In the natural sciences, the word "anomaly" (as seen in the graphic) refers to a measurement that is different from an expected trend. In this case, the plot's data points are compared with data from 1951 to 1980, which is @NASA's reference baseline.
The 1st official #Thanksgiving occurred before scientists started tracking global temperatures, but with global warming, it's no surprise the November record shows an upward trend 📈 As noted before, brief cooling periods happened as a result of large volcanic eruptions ⬇V
UPDATE: October 2021 was the 4th hottest October, globally, since modern recordkeeping began in 1880, measuring at 0.99°C (almost 2°F) above the 1951-1980 baseline average. The eight most recent Octobers have been the hottest: @NASAGISS

T-minus one year and counting! 🌊🛰 The Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission is getting ready for launch. This next-generation satellite will make the first global survey of Earth’s surface water and measure how it changes over time. More…2N
Climate change can make drought more severe in the U.S. West – but a new platform called OpenET is using @NASAEarth data to help show farmers how much water their crops really need and inform decisions for water conservation efforts.…

#ICYMI: The term "parts per million" refers to the number of carbon dioxide molecules per million molecules of dry air.
UPDATE: Last month's global average concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) was about 417 parts per million (ppm), a nearly 49% rise since 1850 due to human activities, like burning fossil fuels.…
Tackling the climate crisis is imperative. It's great to see leaders from across the planet come together at #COP26 to discuss ways to do this effectively. @NASAEarth data is an incredible tool that informs decision makers about our changing planet:

But that’s not the only way the agency's innovations make an impact. Many advances to meet the harsh demands of space travel are also helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve alternative energy sources, and increase our understanding of climate change. #COP26
.@NASA’s work has generated countless spinoff technologies that are now on the front lines of the fight against climate change. That shouldn’t be a surprise, since the agency’s missions include studying Earth and improving aircraft efficiency. #COP26
It’s not your imagination: Certain extreme events, like heat waves, are happening more often and becoming more intense. But what role are humans playing in Earth’s extreme weather and climate event makeover? Scientists are finding clear human fingerprints.…
Want an instant reading of sea-level change – whether close to home or far away? @NASA’s newly updated online tool provides a snapshot of the ocean’s rise or fall for locations across the planet. It covers the period between 1993 and 2019. #COP26…
Emission reductions caused by the #COVID19 pandemic had unexpected effects on our atmosphere, showing how closely the problems of climate warming and air pollution are linked. A new study examined what a lower-emissions future might look like.

In light of #COP26, we like to see climate data in action! Not only does @NASA measure our changing planet from the ground to space, but the agency empowers communities across the world to find solutions to the challenges they face every day. Learn more ⬇️…

Retweeted by NASA Climate
From the tiniest phytoplankton to hurricanes, droughts and floods, our eyes in space are integral to understanding our changing planet. Today, we showed @VP how our view shapes our knowledge of Earth and helps us prepare for changes in our own backyards.
This afternoon, @VP Harris saw #Landsat 9’s first images at @NASAGoddard. We’re so excited to share our view of Earth with everyone!

Our models of climate change help us understand where climate impacts are already being felt, allowing communities to prepare. We're also working on technology to help mitigate heat in urban areas, as well as developing electric aircraft.
From melting glaciers to shifting precipitation patterns, the signs of climate change are all around us. Together with our partners in the U.S. and around the globe, we also seek out solutions to climate change.
Earth’s climate is changing. We can track the drivers of climate change -- greenhouse gas emissions -- from space. Working with @USGS and @NOAA, we are monitoring the causes and effects of a warming planet.
📸#Landsatt 9 captured its first images Oct. 31, and they’re striking! These data-rich images show us glaciers, actively burning fires and more, continuing a 50-year partnership between@NASAA and@USGSS.

Put another way, a 1° increase in body temperature can lead to a fever; a 5° increase can land you in the hospital. For Planet Earth, as temperatures rise, we’ll see more melting land ice, sea level rise, intense heat waves, wildfires, and other effects. Learn more ⬇️ #COP26
#COP26 kicked off yesterday. As global leaders discuss how to limit global warming within 1.5°C (2.7°F) and protect our communities and natural habitats, get a refresher on why even a 1-degree rise is a concern for our planet.…

This #Halloween2021, we look back at the global temperature record for past Octobers. Note how much warming has happened in about 100 years, since the first official citywide Halloween celebration in the U.S. (in Anoka, Minn.) in 1921.
