Due to climate change in Moldova today can be found African butterflies and hummingbirds

According to zoologists and meteorologists, near the hour when our country more comfortable people will feel tropical animals. Moldovan weatherman for more than a century of observation state: climate in our country seriously changed. One indication is that the frequency and intensity of disasters has increased significantly in recent years. Take, for example, floods. Previously, these floods occurred once in thirty years, and now have become quite common. Severe droughts in 2001, 2003, 2007 and 2009. The average annual temperature in the country has increased by 0.8 degrees. Natural disasters and there is evidence of climate change in our country.

Antarctic ice and sea level rise: unanswered questions

How much sea levels will rise as a result of global warming? There is no clear answer to this question is no. Most often cited the IPCC assessment, but it is inaccurate, since the experts decided on the most conservative figures — just because of the huge number of unknowns.

One of the many "x's" — Antarctica, to predict the state of which is incredibly difficult. A recent review of the research in the journal Nature Geoscience perfectly sums up the state of our knowledge of the West Antarctic ice sheet.

Antarctica is divided in two parts of the

Chalk landslides in Germany

Rainy summer bother coast of the island of Rügen in Germany is much more than usual. According to the management of the national park in Western Pomerania, on weekends, under the pressure of the water over a vast array of chalk separated and fell into the sea. Off the coast of Kiel on the segment length of about 70 m, about 120 000 cubic meters chalk slipped down to the beach. In this case, it is one of the biggest collapses chalk since 2002. Then slipped about 150 000 cubic meters chalk.

In the national park, where there was an

All Russian station in Antarctica in 2013, will provide Internet

All of the Russian Antarctic stations in the season will be provided with satellite Internet, by February end its setting at Vostok and Mirny, told RIA Novosti the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute of Roshydromet (AARI).

Leading researcher of climate change and the environment AARI Alex Ekaykin working at the moment on the "East", wrote in his blog on Livejournal.com, that the polar station "broke civilization in the form of the Internet."

"However," broke "- I exaggerated a little. At 128 kbit / s better to say" hardly squeezed. "To get online, you need a hell of a lot of

Belarus has seen the most global warming in the Northern Hemisphere

Chief of the hydro-meteorological monitoring and fund data Republican Hydrometeorological Center Victor Miller said that the warming in Belarus has led to a shift in the agro-climatic regions of 80-120 km from south to north, reports ALE.BY.

The average annual temperature in the country has increased over the last 20 years by 1.1 degrees. In the northern hemisphere during the same period, the average temperature has increased by an average of 0.8 degrees, BelTA informs.

In general, steady warming observed in the republic since 1989. Among other features of climate change in Belarus representative Hydrometeocentre called the greatest temperature

The melting of the Arctic ice disappearing habitat of polar bears

Basking under a clear sky and quiet in the sun, which brought a wonderful warmth in the Arctic Ocean, the polar ice cap shrank to a record low for the month of July sizes, resulting in a further reduction in the area of floating ice.

This month, the average size of the Arctic ice cover was only about 8 million square kilometers. This is about 210,000 square miles below the previous record set in 2007, as evidenced by recent data from the National Data Center for Snow and Ice. It's more than 2 million square kilometers below the set by

Climate change is a 5-fold increase in the number of record warm months

Global climate change is a five-fold increase in the number of record warm months — 80% of monthly temperature records would not have happened without human influence on climate, say the authors of an article published in the journal Climatic Change.

According to scientists the Potsdam Institute for Research on the effects of climate change (PIK) and the Complutense University of Madrid, the natural variability of the climate system can not fully explain the observed in the last 130 years, the growth of abnormally warm months in all regions of the world.

NASA scientists used data on monthly temperature of

The permafrost is melting rapidly

PARIS, August 1. Global warming may lead to the fact that the Russian territory with permafrost decline by mid-century to third. Writes about Around the World with the reference to France Presse.

In the next 25-30 years, the area of permafrost in Russia could be reduced by 10-18%. By mid-century decline 15-30%, and the boundary of the permafrost will shift to the north-east of 150-200 km.

Permafrost covers about 63% of the territory of Russia, and in the last decade, it is strongly influenced by climate change. Continued melting fraught with numerous problems: could destabilize transportation system, "float" buildings damaged

Scientists thought the earth benefits from the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions

Scientists have calculated that the damage to the ecology of the planet can be 65% less if you manage to keep greenhouse gas emissions and the resulting global warming within stipulated by the UN Climate Conference, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

UN conference on climate change held in December 2012 in Doha (Qatar). It was decided that the human race needs to take urgent measures to keep average temperatures on the planet within two degrees Celsius over the period to 2100. Thus one of the main mechanisms must be tightly controlled, reducing greenhouse gas
