SW Knowledgebase: Start Here
Welcome to the Scientists’ Warning ‘Learn and Act’ Knowledgebase
The Scientists’ Warning Knowledgebase provides relevant, powerful learning resources geared to the individual, local, regional, national and global levels. The Scientists’ Warning Knowledgebase presents climate science, climate news, debunks, education, analysis, trending topics and discussion on how to begin your journey toward a knowledgeable, science-led approach to understanding the complex interrelated problems of our times.
The Scientists’ Warning Knowledgebase is an educational pathfinder that links scientists, researchers, students of all ages, and citizen scientists to the most relevant information and analysis on the many topics related to the global climatological emergency and the sixth mass extinction event underway.
Scientists’ Warning takes an evidence-based, regenerative and biophylic approach to reporting on these matters and their proposed solutions. This work is intended to aid in providing education and discussion that shapes policy and decision-making internationally.
The SW Knowledgebase aspires to answer the question “what can I do?” It also tackles the toughest questions about climate science and provides expert analysis. Get started by reading frequently asked questions (FAQ). Then watch a video introduction on how to be a better steward on Spaceship Earth.
There are many ways that we can act to intervene in the catastrophic trajectory that civilization is on to solve these complex problems. We often refer to these actions as ‘interventions’ since we cannot solve many of these problems in the conventional meaning of the word (putting things back the way they were), but we can intervene to improve and at the very least, mitigate, them by taking right, just and swift action.
Whether you are interested in learning about how to be green, or to find out about the methane emergency, the looming blue ocean event, or ecological economics you will find these topics here. Scientists’ Warning will also consider adding your topic. Just email us with your request. You are invited to scan these topics and explore.
Scientists’ Warning strongly recommends beginning by reading “Drawdown” by Paul Hawken, which offers 100 of the most substantive solutions to global warming as a source of information.
The SW Knowledgebase is under development and growing. Check back often for updates. SW also welcomes comments.
- 2:45 pm May 17, 2020 – Shani Cairns – (Updated introductory paragraphs explaining more on how to use the knowledgebase and how to get started on the site. Removed the term wiki from most of the page and graphics to support update to new site and change in terminology for this section of the site).
- 2:45 pm March 25, 2019 – Shani Cairns – (Updated introductory paragraphs explaining more on how to use the wknowledgebase and how to get started on the site. Placed the knowledgebase contributor guide in the faq-style accordion menu).
- 1:00 pm Jan. 27, 2019 – Charles Gregoire – (Updated the page to reflect the latest strategy of using accordion style panels near the bottom of the page to record a pages update history. Also include how to add references as well as a description of all the various custom shortcodes setup to simplify the process of adding various features to a page).
- 3:00 pm Jan. 8, 2019 – Charles Gregoire – (Added a note regarding comments that will be removed).
- 4:45 pm Dec. 22, 2018 – Shani Cairns – (Added graphics to the page and did some restructuring of headers and content to enhance usability/scan-ability).
- 5:00 pm Oct. 29, 2018 – Charles Gregoire – (Made further refinements to the introduction to better describe the goal of the wiki. I qualified that a “Talk” page should be visible only to the wiki team website subscribers rather than to the general public).
- 1:42 pm Oct. 8, 2018 – Charles Gregoire – (Initial “start here/manual” page developed after several days of editing).
