In this midst of a record-setting fire season, Berkeley Earth's climate scientists Robert Rohde and Zeke Hausfather talk with Social Media Manager Kari Hulac to discuss climate change and the fires burning across the West.
As air pollution becomes an increasingly salient global problem, Berkeley Earth becomes an increasingly important resource for timely, reliable, global data to help inform all sectors of the public, as well as to accurately inform...
Air Pollution and Cigarette Equivalence
With air quality levels deteriorating to unhealthy levels throughout the west coast, our 2015 study correlating PM2.5 levels with the health impacts of cigarette smoking highlights the dangers of prolonged exposure to poor air quality.
July 2020 Temperature Update
July 2020 was tied for the warmest July globally since record-keeping began in 1850. The first seven months of the year have been marked by above average temperatures nearly everywhere, with especially extreme conditions across Asia.
Analysis of COVID-19 and Global Weather Patterns
Warm, sunny weather may have some limited impact on the rate of spread, but in the absence of strong interventions, the pandemic is likely to continue spreading through the summer months in most parts of the world.
Global Warming Overview
Berkeley Earth leverages approximately five times more data than governmental sources. Our analyses are more complete, creating a better understanding of the extent to which other factors may have contributed to warming.
