Climate Change Facts


This site is constructed by Dr. John Everett to provide objective information about climate warming from the perspective of a systems analyst who is often asked about climate change, whether as part of some other issue or directly in Congressional testimony. Every effort is made to present all the issues, similar to what an enquiring mind would need to understand before rendering an opinion as to whether there are pros and cons to a warming (or cooling) scenario for a particular sector in a particular region, or even for the global society. Essentially, this is a site for those who think before they leap. For those whose mind is already determined, perhaps you should go elsewhere and not become confused by facts.

Writings and Presentations on Climate Change are available on the main page.

Dr. Everett led work for the IPCC on five impact analyses from 1988-2000: Fisheries (Convening Lead Author), Polar Regions (Co-Chair), Oceans (Lead Author), and Oceans and Coastal Zones (Co-Chair/2 reports). He also was a Contributing Expert in developing the IPCC Impact Assessment Methodology protocol.  See IPCC Nobel Prize recognitionIPCC Nobel Prize Recognition to John T. Everett. He was on the Board coordinating the NOAA Climate Change Research Program. Since leaving NOAA, he has kept abreast of the literature in these areas, has talked to many individuals and groups and has maintained these subjects on the UN Atlas of the Oceans, where he is the Chief Editor and Project Manager. As time permits, he reviews IPCC documents for IPCC and for the US.

In 1996 he received the NOAA Administrator’s Award for “accomplishments in assessing the impacts of climate change on global oceans and fisheries.”

He was assigned the climate change duties when he was the National Marine Fisheries Service Division Chief for Fisheries Development in the 1970s. The agency was very concerned about the impact of climate change on the United States fisheries and fishing industry. Global cooling. would be devastating to our fisheries and aquaculture. About 1987, the momentum shifted to fears of global warming and as Director of Policy  and Planning for NOAA/NMFS, he was tasked to lead NMFS efforts in dealing with it.

Educated and interested in holistic systems all his life, he grew up in a commercial fishing family, being taught by his father and grandfather the importance of such things as the variations in tides, water temperature, storms, and moon brightness at night on the catchability of lobsters, conchs, cod and other species. He has always been sensitive to the ability for virtually immeasurable factors to affect the timing of movements. Changing climate has long been of interest.

It is designed for policy makers, scientists and resource managers but is also a major attraction to the public and students. The Atlas includes: 1. an encyclopedic About the Oceans section from how oceans were formed, to their physiology, biology, and climatology, including maps and data bases; 2. the Uses of the oceans from sources of food, livelihood, recreation and energy to conservation, shipping, mining; and, 3. Ocean Issues such as food security, governance, global change, and pollution. The Atlas is at
