No one is immune

March 29. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) in its latest report warns of the approach of unprecedented scope and natural disasters. It is reported by Associated Press. The greatest danger they pose to the densely populated regions, but no one in the world can not be completely safe. The main causes of these disasters scientists call climate change due to human activities, population growth and poverty.

In the past, a group of mostly placed the emphasis on low temperature rise of water in the oceans as part of global warming. This year's report concerns

A new approach to the interpretation by the force of attraction

A new approach to the interpretation by the force of gravity Facts

In the modern world of the most appropriate sources of clean energy has long taken its place firmly solar energy, kinetic energy, or wind. However, two London designer Martin Riddiford and Jim Reeves, for such purposes have decided to explore the use of gravity. They managed to design and build a device called «GravityLight», which uses the laws of gravity to produce light.

To «GravityLight» work, it took years of trial experiments. But now, you only need to lift weights, which results in the device in

In the melting of the Arctic polar ice blame fires

In the melting of the Arctic polar ice blame fires Scientists prove

With the help of satellites, scientists have traced the movement of smoke and soot produced during the polar tundra fires in the northern hemisphere and have concluded that accumulated on the ice cover of the soot particles are greatly contributed to accelerated melting of the Greenland ice last summer.

Certainly, intervened to discuss events and clear weather over Greenland, and warm coastal ocean waters. But the appearance of soot factor also played a role. We all know how dark soot from dirty snow and ice are

Mass death in Asia is of climatic anomaly

August 17. Miriam Marler at Columbia University found that such climatic events such as El Niño (as for the heated water is in the eastern zone of the Pacific Ocean and waters off the coast of Indonesia's become cold, we get a result — suppressed monsoon rains usually extinguishing fires in forests) provides a significant increase in deaths in South-East Asia, says "Remedium".

As a result of fires pollution level in the environment increases significantly. This can be a cause of death of about 15 thousand people. So, in the midst of defeat are residents of the regions stretching from

August 3, 2013. Sand storms over the Sudan — a frequent occurrence. In July of this year, NASA's almost every day, "watch" over the Red Sea Dust, brought from the African country.

Sand storms can carry huge amounts of sand, sometimes they look almost like a thick veil. In Sudan, a phenomenon nazyvetsya "Haboub."

Usually the storm lasts about three hours, during her wind can pick up dust and sand to a height of 1,500 meters.

One of the major environmental

A terrible drought has ruined the wheat crop in several Russian regions

August 1, 2013. In the difficult situation the farmers were several Russian regions, not spoiled by rain in the summer of 2013. The land cracked and the harvest will either not at all or will be able to collect the grains are much smaller than expected.

Almost 2 months in the Perm region was a heat wave. No precipitation, plus the thermometer did not fall below 30 degrees. As a result, more than 100 farms are huge losses. According to conservative estimates, 51 million rubles.

"For us it means a lot of forage, grain production, and if we

Annual rings indicated the important role of climate in solar activity

The results of wavelet analysis indicate that the match temperature changes 11 — and 22-year cycles (under a thick line) is almost complete. It is unlikely that the concentration of carbon dioxide could be the determining factor of temperature fluctuations with such recurring intervals. (Here and below illustrate Y. Muraki et al.)

July 23, 2013. For years, scientists heated debate, discuss the question of the connection of the solar cycle and global climate. This is understandable: the modern climate policy requires resources, and if solar activity is actually important for the climate (which is at present the
