Climate change in the late 20th century, accelerated — WMO

Climate change at the end of XX century has accelerated, making the period 2001-2010 the warmest decade, and 2011-th — the warmest of his "colleagues" in cold climate phenomenon "La Niña," said a report by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

Organization presented on March 23, the World Meteorological Day, the preliminary results of the Global Report on the climate for a decade with an annual report on the state of the climate in 2011.

Spring is in the center of Russia this year will be shorter than usual

Next spring on the European part of Russia may be a little shorter than usual due to climate change, the director of Russia Roman Vilfand meteorologist.

"In the last few years in European Russia the duration of the spring period is very small … There is a weak tendency to reduce the duration of the spring period, but do not perceive clearly that the spring will not" — Vilfand said at a news conference in Moscow.

The average date of the beginning of spring in central Russia, the long-term observations, falls on March 18-20, and end — May 7, he

Fly or drive: that is the question

If you really go to stop climate change, it is best to abstain from meat than from traveling by plane. As found in the University of East Anglia, if the person in selecting vehicles between the aircraft and high-speed diesel train or bus will give preference to the last two, it will lead to a significant increase in its ecological footprint. At the same time, flight would have virtually no "cumulative effect" on the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the world.

Opting for air transport also has a positive effect on the personal carbon footprint,

In the Pacific Ocean dives Republic of Kiribati. Video

Due to climate change the water leaves the Republic of Kiribati. In the depths of the already disappeared 32 coral islands and their inhabitants moved to the largest atoll, where the country's capital of Tarawa. But it will soon face the same fate. Kiribati authorities planned to build artificial islands based on the technology of floating oil rigs. But it turned out that the project could not realize — too high costs. The President of the sinking of the country today made with another sensational offer — buy the site, about two thousand acres, from the neighbors.

Melting of the ice increased allocation of bromine on the ozone layer

The scientists found that the melting of the "young" sea ice, replacing perennial ice fields in the process of climate change, the atmosphere receives more bromine, which is destructive effects on the ozone layer, the site of NASA.

A study conducted by a group of scientists from the U.S., Canada, Germany and the UK as part of NASA BROMEX (Bromine, Ozone, and Mercury Experiment) showed that the melting of the ice due to warming in the Arctic, can cause progressive contamination of the region bromine compounds.

"The reduction in sea ice in summer has attracted much attention to the possible

Russia last in the ranking of countries developing clean technologies

Denmark topped, and Russia closed the first ranking of the "green" business innovation, which created the most favorable conditions for business development with the use of clean technologies, according to a survey report published by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

"The ratings were 38 countries that were assessed on 15 criteria relating to the creation of start-ups, using clean technologies. Ranking first five countries — is Denmark, Israel, Sweden, Finland and the USA. Completing the list of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Russia," — the report said fund.

The study, which published the fund was first conducted an international consulting firm

Climate change will increase the risk of extreme heat, say scientists

Heat waves in European Russia in the summer of 2010 may have been due to natural causes, but global warming is linked to human activity, three times the likelihood of such a situation, write British and Dutch scientists in a paper published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

In the summer of 2010 in the European part of the Russian heat wave was recorded. Two months over the European part of the country was an anticyclone, the temperature for a long time kept at above 30 degrees Celsius. Due to the heat wave in European record fires blazed, because of

First plants triggered the ice ages

A new study shows how the appearance of the first plants 470 million years ago caused a series of ice ages

The study led by researchers from the Universities of Exeter and Oxford, and the results were published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

The purpose of the team was to understand and identify the impact that the first land plants had on the climate during the early history of the Ordovician 444 million years ago. During this period, the climate gradually cooled, eventually began a series of ice ages. It is global cooling was caused by a fast and

An Inconvenient Truth about the current state of the global climate

According to experts NOAA, the average global temperature of the planet in 2011, was not included in the top ten warmest. January 2012 also showed no loyalty to global warming and was only 19th in the ranked list.

"The average global temperature of the planet in January 2012, became only the 19th in the list of the highest since 1880 — according to the National Weather Service United States. — The temperature of the land took 26th place in the reporting period. Ocean temperature was the 17th in the list of the most warm and the lowest since 2008, "-

Greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 will be 30% less than in 1990

Greenhouse gas emissions in Russia in 2030 will be 30% below 1990 levels, and about equal to that of 2013, according to a forecast of long-term socio-economic development of Russia until 2030.

As noted by the Ministry of Economy, as of 2013, the level of greenhouse gas emissions in Russia currently stands at about 70% from 1990 levels.

"However, the level of carbon intensity of the economy of Russian Federation is one of the first places in the world, which leads to the actual preservation of technological backwardness of production, reducing the competitiveness of Russian goods in world markets in
