The most extensive groundwater contamination by arsenic in human history

The most extensive groundwater contamination by arsenic in human history Danger Zone

Source of groundwater contamination by arsenic in the Indian part of Bengal basin, discovered a few decades ago, is still not installed. This area is home to about 60 million people who are experiencing an acute shortage of water even for washing or bathing. This concentration of arsenic in drinking water causes skin lesions, respiratory failure and cancer.

It has been suggested that the source of pollution are artificial reservoirs, which accumulates large amounts of organic substances, including arsenic. From there, arsenic and into the groundwater. However, Kansas

Silent earthquakes differ unexpected turn

Cascadia subduction zone (Figure Steve Malone / Central Washington University).

May 23, 2011. Scientists continues to hold secret imperceptible, but the long seismic phenomenon called episodic tremor and slip (ETS, episodic tremor and slip). Recently, the "quiet earthquake" (or, if you like, "slow slip") was discovered a strange twist: a concussion can suddenly change course and return to again go through the rift that it formed a few days earlier, the rate of return movement in the 20-40 times higher than the original — because the area is already weakened.

ETS was first recorded in the north-west

General facts

Our solar system consists of the Sun and everything that revolves around it: the planets, asteroids, comets. The radius of the Sun is 696,000 kilometers, which is 109 times greater than the radius of the Earth. Solar mass 1,99 x1030 pounds — to 333 thousand times the mass of Earth.

The sun is 150 million kilometers from Earth, 8.3 light-minutes. But this distance can vary depending on the position of the Earth in its orbit.

Malnourished and less likely to have to wash the Russians in the next year

The Ministry of Agriculture has estimated damages resulting AgroComplex summer drought. According to analysts, the effects of this natural anomaly we will experience a few years

The Ministry of Agriculture estimated the total damage at last caused the Russian agro-complex heat and drought. According to the calculations department, the direct costs of all the constituents associated with the vagaries of summer weather, totaled 41.6 billion rubles, while the number of affected regions to 43's. Most of all has got to the Volga, Urals, Southern and Central federal districts where the crop was lost in more than 13 million hectares.

Abstract

In many laboratories around the world are working to find the exact methods to prevent earthquakes.

During the study, the author found:

abnormal response of the animals, correlated with the strength, the place and time of the next earthquake; opened the gravity-wave seismic «KaY-wave" that moves from the periphery to the site of a future earthquake, correlated with the strength, the place and time of the next earthquake; the link gravitationally seismic resonance phenomena on a planetary scale in the epicentral area of energy returned KaY-wave corresponding to

The colossal, mind-numbingly hot, capable of spewing clouds of ash and rivers of burning lava volcanoes — a dwarf compared to the people in regard to the production of carbon dioxide.

Annually bipedal emitted approximately 135 times larger than carbon dioxide. In other words, people in three days produce as much as volcanoes issue for the year.

"The question is whether volcanoes emit more CO2, than the man — the most common in my email" —

What unites the floods in Europe, the heat in the Murmansk and snow in Kemerovo?

June 3, 2013. Floods in Central Europe, threatening to become a flood of the century, unusual heat in the Murmansk region and in the north of Siberia, the rains in the south of the ETP, Belarus and Ukraine, the cold weather in the south of Siberia and even Snow in the Kemerovo region, high rain floods in the south of the Far East — the most notable weather events of the last days in the territory of Eurasia.

But so are the waves in the middle troposphere. West-east transport in the troposphere over the continent broken — it was
