Danger of explosive eruptions

Unusually weak Cleveland volcano in the Aleutian Islands off Alaska, USA, may be a prelude to a large-scale natural disaster. This was reported by Reuters, with reference to the Alaskan Volcano Observatory (Alaska Volcano Observatory). Cleveland, the peak height of about 1700 meters, 1.5 thousand km south of the capital of Alaska, Anchorage, spewing lava from the crater mid-July. The volume of lava spewing relatively small, but satellite images show that in the crater of the volcano are rising lava. "We fear an explosive eruption," — said Steve McNutt (Steve McNutt) at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks (University of Alaska Fairbanks),

Climate Change in the Caucasus caused bird deaths

VLADIKAVKAZ, September 19. Ornithologists North Ossetia associated disappearance of several species of birds to climate change. According sk-news.ru Ph.D., a leading ornithologist North Ossetia Yuri Komarov, the evidence that watch Caucasian ornithologists alarming.

"It is still not seen the Sand Martin, this leads to negative thoughts — says Komarov. — Flight ended tragically chernogolovok-warblers that migrate in flocks in the fog and crashed on Fiagdonsky television repeater at an altitude of 2,800 m."

Ornithologist connects the disappearance this year of many species of birds in flight with a rainy summer, the result of which could have been killed laying

In Antarctica was colder — say U.S. scientists

In Antarctica, the last 35 years it has become much colder, and the temperature continues to fall, despite the global warming observed in the world, the conclusion made by U.S. researchers.

While the temperature of the rest of the continents increased over the last century, Antarctica is resisting the trend, although the reasons for this remain a mystery.

Over the last century the average temperature of the world's growing every ten years by 0.06 degrees Celsius. The exception was the period between 1979-1998 years, when the warming trend was more pronounced — 0.19 degrees Celsius.

Data from the meteorological

Salmon are doomed?

Climate warming is likely to destroy the king salmon — at least in one of California basin. For no matter what projections were taken, researchers, modeling shows that in coming decades the fish disappear, if people do not come to her aid. This will affect other species of salmon, and all over the west coast of North America. In California, the temperature is as close to a tipping point. "When we got the results, I could not hold back tears," — says Lisa Thompson of the University of California at Davis (USA).

Specialists focused on the river chinook Butte Creek

Siberians, scientists project that would not escape the floods due to climate change

September 16, an information portal Sibkray.ru reported that in Novosibirsk started a two-day Russian-German Workshop on "Climate Change in Siberia — a challenge to our society?". Scientific leadership seminar on the German side carries Dr. Rolf Baur (Technical University of Dresden), the Russian side project led Ph.D. Paul Barsukov (Institute of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry). Novosibirsk is the third Siberian city, where is the workshop — a few days before global warming discussed in Irkutsk and Krasnoyarsk. Dr. Baur believes that from a scientific point of view there is no doubt in the existence of global warming. However,

Another consequence of warming oceans: reproduction of cholera bacilli

Scientists and environmentalists have always been concerned about the possible effects of climate change. But who would have thought that, due to higher water temperatures in the seas and oceans will increase the concentration of pathogens, such as bacteria Vibrio, which causes people to severe food poisoning, gastroenteritis and even sepsis.

But it is true and it has been proven in the report, presented by the two-day conference in Brussels on climate change that is taking place these days. In the 200-page document details the results of more than 100 research projects funded by the European Union for more than

Glacier threat: Greenland is melting, Antarctica is unstable

According rnd.cnews.ru, Greenland ice sheet is melting faster. However, the main danger harbor ice in Antarctica — these glaciers are more volatile. Scientists came to the conclusion that they could provoke a global flood.

In the last a long period of warming on Earth sea level was at least 4, and can be, and 20 meters higher than today.

Where was all this water, and there is a danger of flooding near coastal cities, home to a huge number of the world's population? Scientists know that most of the period of warming up the oceans due to melting

Melting Arctic lemmings and invasion

Companions saw the least "hot spots" for the entire fire season in 2011, spoke of Roshydromet coming winter, environmentalists have presented a new version of the Russian regions and the draft program of salvation leopards, scientists re-evaluate the damage from the accident in the Gulf of Mexico and Norway lemmings flooded roads — these are the main news of the outgoing "green" week.

Flammable minimum

The number of satellites found in Russia "hot spots" — potential wildfires — on Tuesday dropped to 64, the minimum value for the entire fire-dangerous period of the year. In July and August in Russia

UN chief calls for urgent action on climate change

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Ban Ki-moon said that those who were skeptical about climate change, were wrong.

As examples of the negative effects of global warming, he cited the drought in the Horn of Africa and devastating floods in northern Australia. These comments came on the eve of the annual climate summit to be held in November in South Africa, where they will meet the leaders of more than 119 countries.

According to the UN, the disaster in East Africa takes rampant drought affected 750,000 people
