Emissions of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached record levels

Pollution of the atmosphere with carbon dioxide has increased significantly in 2010. Experts from the International Energy Agency warned that emissions have reached a new, "previously-seen" level.

The increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere associated with the experts the global economic recovery after the financial crisis of 2008. Industrial production growth has led to what has been thrown into the atmosphere by 1.6 gigatons of poisonous substances than in the 2009th.

Science can not predict the anomalous heat

Although the summer of 2010 almost a year, scientists still can not confidently answer the question about the causes of extreme heat. However, some have expressed the view that hot summer — just one manifestation of unprecedented scale of change in Earth's climate system.

Like last year, meteorologists nothing can please them: theoretically possible "range" of weather forecasting is only 14 days, and modern methods can make relatively accurate predictions only for seven days.

"There is a theoretical limit of predictability — two weeks atmosphere" forgets "the initial conditions. Nonlinear processes in the atmosphere, and the weakest fluctuations in

Attempts bowels shifted the Earths axis

17 centimeters there, 8 inches here

Italian scientists from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, immediately after the cataclysm determined that the Japanese earthquake caused the displacement of the Earth axis by about 10 centimeters. Soon followed by refinement of NASA.

— Not at 10, and 17 centimeters — said Richard Gross, a research fellow Jet Propulsion Laboratory. — She reached.

Shift has occurred with respect to the previous position of the planet. A previous match that took land after Chilean riot subsoil in February 2010. Then, an earthquake of 8.8 points shifted the axis by

Cosmic rays form the terrestrial clouds

Do greenhouse gases, which are the official, though not recognized by all opinion is the main factor causing global climate change, there is another competitor — the cosmic rays.

Opponents of the official point of view for a long time say there are at least centuries of close correlation between solar activity and global temperatures — moments of maximum coincides with the warm years and vice versa. But so far, most looked at this relationship as a coincidence, since, according to calculations, the fluctuations can change the brightness of the sun the earth's temperature by only a

There was the time of the 32nd Flood

Energy events associated with global warming, there is no separate episodes, and prolonged and natural phenomenon. Among the many challenges faced by the Earth's civilization at the beginning of XXI century, global warming and climate change are of paramount importance. It's been over 50 years since the UN conference in Stockholm drew attention to environmental degradation. But there is still no generally accepted ideas about the causes of global events on Earth. In the media, some journalists relish incredible rumors about the end of the world. Our planet — a part of the cosmos, and all global events on it
