Kiribati could become the first floating state

A small island nation of Kiribati in the Pacific, the threat of extinction — the water level near the archipelago is constantly increasing and threatens soon to wash away the country to the ground. Kiribati authorities want to move more than 100 000 people on floating platforms, reports Associated Press.

At the meeting, the leaders of the Pacific in New Zealand, Anote Tong, President of the Republic of Kiribati, which comprises 33 islands, has expressed serious concern over the fact that soon led them to the country may cease to exist. At least, in the usual form. In recent years,

Global climate change has already begun to cause natural disasters

Global climate change has already begun to cause natural disasters. This was stated by the Secretary General of the United Nations — Ban Ki-moon. According to him, the recent drought in north-east Africa and floods in northern Australia — is called the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Ban also said that in the fight against global climate change the international community has made considerable progress. He called on all countries to take urgent measures to protect the environment. Leaders of more than 120-states will discuss the environmental problems of the planet at the annual climate summit. His conduct in November

Gulf Stream is no more, so expect Europe Yakut frost

Consequence of the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico could be the death of two-thirds of humanity by 2030.

Last August, a theoretical physicist at the National Laboratory in Frascati (Italy), Dr. Zangazi bomb detonated real information. According to him, based on satellite images, giant ocean Gulf Stream, largely determine the climate in Europe and North America, has practically disappeared. According to the scientist, this was one of the consequences of a catastrophic oil spill last year after the famous disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

But first, a few words about the Gulf Stream. This warm ocean river

Arctic could be a testing ground for developing a model of sustainable development

Cooperation of the Arctic Council in the field of environmental protection and sustainable development of the region could be a model for the international community, the executive director of the global resource database of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Prokoshev Peter (Peter Prokosch).

"As part of the global dialogue were formulated global goals for sustainable development, and here Arctic and the Arctic Council can play a very important role. Situation in the North more understandable, since the players are eight advanced countries operating in a sparsely populated region, which, however, occupies 15% of the world "- said Prokoshev RIA

Russia to intensify the fight against emissions of soot, says expert

Russia must intensify the fight against emissions of soot, because such a move on her part will allow faster international cooperation in this field, the executive director of the global resource database of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Prokoshev Peter (Peter Prokosch).

Black carbon, a component of soot and a product of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels and biomass, "lives" in the atmosphere relatively short time, from a few days to a couple weeks, as well washed out by precipitation. However, its impact on the climate significantly as black particles not only absorb solar radiation and "contaminate" the clouds, but,

Madagascar began sea elephants

Just three elephants were found dead near the capital of Madagascar. Doctors suspect that the cause of death of the elephants was a dramatic climate change on the island. Temperature changes per day — more than 15 degrees difference. Elephants have just can not stand the heart — says Jacqueline Guturamunadzi.

Climate warming causes more snow in Siberia

Global climate change leads to the growth of the snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere and in Siberia, said on Thursday the director of the Institute of Geography RAS Vladimir Kotlyakov, speaking at the World Forum of snow.

"There is a paradox — a warming, which is characteristic of the world becomes more snow. This is in large areas of Siberia, where the snow more than it was one or two decades ago," — said the honorary president of the Russian Geographical Society Kotlyakov.

According to geographer trend expansion area of snow in the northern hemisphere, scientists observe from the

Monthly heat records have increased fivefold

According to a study conducted by researchers from Spain and Germany, due to the global warming of the planet every month there are more and more new temperature records, and the frequency of their occurrence has increased five-fold. In many parts of Europe, Africa and South Asia, the incidence of temperature records has increased by 10 times.

That is the conclusion of scientists pushed data over the last 130 or so years of observation and analysis of monthly temperature on the planet. In this case, the control data were taken at 12 thousand points over the earth, which are

Spring has come to the U.S. for 1.5 months ahead of schedule

The earliest spring on the East Coast of the U.S. in the last 150 years due to abnormally high temperatures in 2010 and 2012, according to U.S. scientists.

Spring primroses appeared on the U.S. East Coast for a few weeks before the "necessary", scientists have linked unusually early onset of spring with global climate change.

"We're already seeing primroses that usually appear at least three weeks later, and some" hasty "in six weeks," — said the head of research fellow at Harvard University, Charles Davis (Charles Davis).

Experts from Harvard, Boston and the University of Wisconsin (USA) conducted a study

Off the coast of Iceland discovered during that can change the climate

An international team of researchers has confirmed that the deep ocean circulation system off Iceland that could significantly influence the ocean response to climate change previously unanticipated ways.

North Iceland for contributing to the thermohaline circulation, which is essential for regulating Earth's climate. This pipeline carries warm surface water to high latitudes where the water warms the air, then cools, sinks and returns toward the equator as a deep flow.   For many years it was thought that it is a major component of the East Greenland Current. However, this view in 2004, has been challenged by two Icelandic
