Abstract:
Sturgis paints a grim future for North Carolina's Outer Banks and coastal counties in the twenty-first century. Global warming is predicted to produce rising oceans levels from fourteen inches to three feet, temperature ranges from four to ten degrees higher than current levels, and more powerful tropical storms. Climate change is a vast and serious problem, but in North Carolina many organizations are bringing people together to address this critical problem. Senate Bill 1134 and House Bill 1191 would establish a commission drawn from these various groups to study the problem. Both this group and the proposed legislation faces opposition from politically powerful corporate interests. Meanwhile, the state's coastline continues to erode.

Abstract:
With a barrier island coast and vast areas of estuaries, North Carolina is particularly vulnerable to global warming. In addition, agriculture and urban areas are now more vulnerable to changes in temperature and precipitation associated with global warming. Thus, this article explores global warming and associated methane emissions in North Carolina.

Abstract:
Greg Fishel has worked as a meteorologist for WRAL-TV since 1981 and until recently, he denied the existence of global warming. In 2015, he changed his mind after examining the issue scientifically rather than ideologically. In an October 12 blogpost on the WRAL site, Fishel explained his change of heart and his support for the fight against global warming. The Washington Post picked up the story, projecting Fishel into the national spotlight.

Abstract:
Seismologist Jose Rial is studying global warming and glacial quakes in Greenland. When the glaciers shift, they crack and produce hundreds of micro-earthquakes. According to Rial, the increasing number and intensity of glacial quakes corresponds to rapid glacial melting.

Abstract:
The Carolina Environmental Program seeks ways to reduce the carbon footprint of people and their communities. According to researchers, the most critical factors to address are atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, other nations imitating our industrial revolution, and global population growth. They suggest redesigning sustainable communities and providing mass transit.

Abstract:
Marine scientist Chris Martens went to Brazil to track the effects of land use on atmospheric gas exchange. He is interested in Amazonian rain forest respiration because it may protect us from global warming and influence oceanic processes.

Abstract:
An emerging environmental issue in North Carolina is the greenhouse effect, the slow warming of the earth caused by carbon dioxide and other atmospheric gases. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to determine what the by-products of global warming are going to be.

Abstract:
North Carolina State University scientists are developing new farming methods for developing countries to combat global warming. Slash and burn agriculture particularly in the area of dense tropical rain forests is thought to contribute to the warming trend.

Abstract:
Wetlands in North Carolina and throughout the world are seriously threatened by the increase in global warming. To reverse trends, national policies are needed to cut reliance on fossil fuels, eliminate all nonessential uses of chlorofluorocarbons, and reduce the rate of deforestation.

Abstract:
Durham plans to curb global warming through its proposed Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Local Action Plan. Plans to reduce emissions by 2030 are detailed. The plan is described as aggressive, but doable. One of the major challenges will be to reduce emissions as the population increases with the city’s 25% expected growth over the time period.
