Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego has been at the forefront of climate change research for more than 50
years, since a Scripps Oceanography scientist named Charles David
Keeling cataloged a history of atmospheric carbon dioxide levels that
came to be known as the "Keeling Curve." This comprehensive webpage includes Scripps research into the science of global warming.

The Copenhagen Diagnosis
A group of leading climate scientists, including Scripps Oceanography climate researcher Richard Somerville,
issued a report in November 2009 that concludes scientists have underestimated the pace and extent of global warming. The report — titled "The Copenhagen Diagnosis" — documents key findings in climate change science since the
publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report in 2007. The scientists found that global ice-sheets are melting at an increased rate, Arctic sea-ice is
disappearing much faster than recently projected, and future sea-level
rise is now expected to be much higher than previously forecast. Download the full report here.
Rutgers Initiative on Climate Change, Social Policy, and Politics
The Initiative on Climate Change, Social Policy, and Politics (CCSPP) functions to marshal the
resources of Rutgers University in the social sciences to address the challenges posed by global
warming, greenhouse gasses and the reduction of carbon emissions. Its mission is to conduct
research, education and public service to better understand how both state and national
political institutions can respond to these challenges.
Climate Timeline Information Tool
Weather and climate are always in flux, always changing. At times the changes can be sudden and dramatic, while on other occasions the changes are subtle and occur over long periods of time. What are the primary causes and effects of these changes? How do they relate to our everyday lives and to human history? The National Geophysical Data Center explores these and other questions in the Climate TimeLine.
The IPCC is a scientific body established by the United Nations. Its mission is to provide comprehensive scientific assessments of the current state of knowledge on scientific aspects of climate change, its potential environmental and socio-economic consequences, and possible options for adapting to these consequences or mitigating the effects. New reports are released by the IPCC approximately every 5-6 years.
