Bark beetles have caused the warming in Canada in the early 21st century — scientists

One of the main causes of sudden warming in western Canada in the early 21 th century was an unprecedented epidemic of bark beetles that have destroyed great part of forests in this part of North America, say scientists in a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

It is believed that emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases as well as deforestation and other human activities are the main drivers of climate change. In particular, the increase in average temperature by 1 degree Celsius in the western and northern Canada is associated with the "contribution" of man in

Birds of Britain run by climate change in the reserve — scientists

Specially protected natural areas are the "climate refuge" for many species of birds and insects UK — escaping from the usual environmental conditions change, these types of first learn exactly reserves of the country, according to an article published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

One of the consequences of climate change is considered a "flight" of many species of animals and plants — shift the boundaries of their habitat due to changes in usual conditions, in particular the growth of the average temperature. A team led by Chris Thomas (Chris Thomas) in August 2011, published

Megacities heated air within a thousand kilometers

Large cities have giant "stove", able to increase the average temperature of one degree Celsius in the remote rural areas, even at a distance of several thousand miles away, indicating that the underestimation of the role of cities in climate change, climate scientists say in a paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

"We found that the lost heat from the major cities, can heat up the atmosphere in remote regions from them. This phenomenon is due to changes in the circulation of air masses, which causes the release of excess heat in homes and other parts of the

Mankind protects environment by only 12% of the land surface

Reserves cover only 12% of the land and 7.2% of coastal areas, said the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) on Monday.

More than 180,000 protected areas currently occupy 12% of the Earth's land area and 7.2% of coastal waters. They play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and help people adapt to climate change — leads IUCN log data Solutions.

As noted by an environmental organization, conservation areas absorb almost 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. For example, taiga forest and peatland area of 1.63 million hectares in Russia's Komi Republic absorb about 71.5

Rains caused shoaling ocean

2010 was the worst in the history of global observations of the most destructive floods. However, only the first 3 weeks of 2011 has proved to be a mega-flood as for the whole year ", — said meteorologist Jeff Mesters.

The whole day was spent in the study of what columnist New York Times, Thomas Friedman calls "global meteohaosom": the destabilization of our meteosystems, shakes 3 million tons of emissions that enter the atmosphere, thanks to us the use of natural resources. So today is a rare day when I was so shocked by recent statements from NASA about the
