Abstract. Improving observations of ocean heat content show that Earth is absorbing substantially more energy from the Sun than it is radiating to space as heat, implying that more global warming is in the pipeline. Paleoclimate data and observations of ongoing climate change imply that continued business-as-usual fossil fuel emissions would have disastrous impacts on today's young people, future generations, and nature. I will describe the changes that are needed to restore Earth's energy balance and stabilize global temperature.
