disaster movie: endeavorist: “Part of being a scientist is you don’t want to believe there is a problem you can’t solve.” – Dr. Michael Mann is the Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University and holds joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute. Mann is also the director of Penn State’s Earth System Science Center, authored over 170 peer-reviewed papers, and most notably, he co-authored the study which established the iconic “hockey stick graph,” a reconstruction of global climate communicating a general cooling trend over the last 1,000 years broken by an abrupt and precipitous spike that began in 1900. In the face of a nearly unanimous consensus on human-induced climate change, a rapidly warming planet, and data which not only revalidates these realities, but informs us that the change is occurring faster than our best models forecasted, the general public largely hears conflated opinions and biased assessments via the news media which either dull down the reality of climate change, or outright deny its existence.  According to the National Climatic Data Center, the world just saw its warmest winter ever…except for in one spot in the north Atlantic ocean (the deepest blue color above), which set a record for cold. Which is not good. (Credit: WashPost; NCDC) But what about the actual scientists and researchers studying our warming planet meticulously from the sea, ground, sky, and space? Let’s clarify what kind of science this is comprised of. Climate change/global warming data is determined and monitored amongst the collaboration of the following fields:  Earth science or geoscience (also considered to be a branch of planetary science) which studies the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. Earth scientists use tools from physics, chemistry, biology, chronology, and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of how the Earth system works.  Atmospheric science is comprised of meteorology, which includes atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric physics (focused on weather forecasting); climatology, which studies the atmospheric changes (long and short-term) that define average climates and their change over time via natural and anthropogenic climate variability; aeronomy, or, the study of the upper layers of the atmosphere, where dissociation and ionization are vital; and all of these fields encroach into the field of planetary science and the study of the atmospheres of the planets of the solar system. Experimental instruments used in atmospheric sciences include satellites, rocketsondes, radiosondes, weather balloons, and lasers. Oceanography (oceanology and/or marine science) covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; as well as fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries. The diversity of these topics reflect multiple disciplines that oceanographers merge to further knowledge of the world ocean and understanding of processes within: astronomy, biology,chemistry, climatology, geography, geology, hydrology, meteorology and physics. Paleoceanography studies the history of the oceans in the geologic past, which is incorporated here also. Biogeochemistry involves the study of the chemical, physical, geological, and biological processes and reactions that govern the composition of the natural environment (including the biosphere, the cryosphere, the hydrosphere, the pedosphere, the atmosphere, and the lithosphere). In particular, biogeochemistry is the study of the cycles of chemical elements, such as carbon and nitrogen, and their interactions with and incorporation into living things transported through earth scale biological systems in space through time. The field focuses on chemical cycles which are either driven by or have an impact on biological activity. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorus cycles. Biogeochemistry is a systems science closely related to systems ecology. Weather forecasting - applied to climate science on a more local or regional scale - is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location, which humanity has attempted to predict accurately since the nineteenth century. Forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change. Analog techniques such as the El Niño – Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), the Northern Annualar Mode (NAM) which is also known as the Arctic oscillation (AO), the Northern Pacific (NP) Index, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO). Climate models are used for a variety of purposes from study of the dynamics of the weather and climate system to projections of future climate. As shown above, to simply appeal to a scapegoat response such as “I’m not a scientist” or “the science isn’t settled” demonstrates quite literally that the person/s putting forth such excuses are not aligning their perspectives with reality.  Read: “I’m Not A Scientist Is A Dangerous Cop-Out” (Slate) In Esquire’s editorial piece with Jason Box, a topic seldom covered by the world press is brought into clearer view. ‘When the End of Human Civilization Is Your Day Job’ interviews several scientists, discussing the psychologically taxing demand of working so closely with a field in which the data and forecast predictions read like a scene from a Hollywood disaster movie.  And in the midst of a time when denial of evidence from legislative representatives in the U.S. who continually ignore our humanity’s biggest survival threat and fossil fuel-funded think tanks disseminate misinformation out to the public and through the halls of the U.S. Congress, it’s becoming increasingly difficult - to say the least - for reality to trump corporate influence.

From the esquire interview:  “We need the deniers to get out of the way. They are risking everyone’s future…. The Koch Brothers are criminals…. They should be charged with criminal activity because they’re putting the profits of their business ahead of the livelihoods of millions of people, and even life on earth. It’s unethical to bankrupt the environment of this planet…that’s a tragedy, right? But I—I—I’m not letting it get to me. If I spend my energy on despair, I won’t be thinking about opportunities to minimize the problem.” That last statement resonates deeply with us here at endeavorist. “…thinking about opportunities to minimize the problem” are precisely what Endeavorist.org allows for when utilizing every facet of the network’s utilities. Jumpstart the accumulation of additional funds to increase the $25 base fund for a Grant that can be awarded to a researcher who applies for it, helping them to fund a specific aspect of their research. Launch a Research Campaign and crowdfund the finances necessary to aid in a research project. Post a Call To Action for field work assistance, surveys, focus groups. We created Endeavorist to be accessible to everyone so that an ongoing network is developed out of a need to collaborate across all areas of science.  There’s never been a timely and frankly, a more dire era in the history of our civilization, for a combined effort on the problems that require our best efforts forward, together. Endeavorist meets these needs by providing a place which encourages cooperation where a person or team can communicate beyond time zones, borders, or the claustrophobic confines of government bureaucracy to tackle important challenges.  Join Endeavorist, and together, we can #freescience.
