Hot Topic Solar System Earth Climate
The Best Laid Plans
Topic: Climate
Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, discusses the recent set of email messages sent by the Director of the University of East Anglia´s Climate Research Unit that were hacked and uploaded to a public Web site. The emails have sparked a great deal of debate concerning climate change.

The Linguistics of Climate Change
Topic: Climate
Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, recently spoke with Professor Brigitte Nerlich about aspects of climate change related to human behavior. The future of life on Earth may truly be in the hands of humankind - yet our actions are sometimes hard to predict or understand.

From Greenhouse to Icehouse
Topic: Climate
A new study that reconstructed ocean temperatures from millions of years ago could provide new insight into how the Earth responds to climate change.

Receding Ice, Rising Oceans
Topic: Climate
Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, recently discussed how receding glaciers could have catastrophic consequences for Earth's climate. Increasing loss of glacial ice will lead to increasing water levels in the oceans. Ultimately, these changes could profoundly affect the biosphere.

Measuring Climate Change
Topic: Climate
Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, recently spoke with Dr. Marty Mlynczak of NASA's Langley Research Center about the limitations of the technology we have on hand to measure climate change. Things we can't measure could be important in understanding the links between climate and habitability.

Think Global, Act Local
Topic: Climate
Recently, Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, spoke with Dr. Anastasia Romanou, Associate Research Scientist at NASA GISS, about the need for precise local measurements of climate phenomena. Local measurements can provide information about the real impacts of climate change.

A New Wrinkle in Ancient Ocean Chemistry
Topic: Climate
Scientists widely accept that the Earth's atmosphere underwent a dramatic rise in oxygen 2.4 billion years ago, which ultimately paved the way for complex life on our planet. New research has helped solve some important questions surrounding this 'Great Oxidation Event'.

Fish – It's What's for Dinner
Topic: Climate
The oceans of Earth play an essential role in making our planet habitable for life as we know it. The future of our oceans, however, may be in jeopardy. Recently, Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, discussed how anoxic waters may affect the biosphere in years to come.

Ocean Acidifcation, Climate's Step Sister
Topic: Climate
The Hot Zone recently discussed ocean acidification and what it could mean for the future climate of Earth. Earlier this month expert panels organized by the United Nations discussed ocean acidification and the future of Earth's marine ecosystems.

Prospects of a Geoengineered World
Topic: Climate
The Hot Zone recently featured a conversation with Dr. Philip Rasch of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Dr. Rasch and his team create mathematical models of what the Earth´s climate might look like in the future.
