Take action against climate change

Join us in sending a compelling Earth Day 2014 message to the Central New York community and local elected officials:

We all must act now to reduce our impacts on climate change.

Below is a list of science-based articles on research into various aspects of climate change. Most of these articles are abstracts based on scientific research from around the world. They come from various sources such as ScienceDaily, scientific journals and science reporters.

If you have any questions or would like to receive future articles via email as they are posted, please contact me at

Thank you for your interest in climate change.
