Cuba could lose 2.4% of the territory due to sea level rise

April 11, 2013. Cuba could lose in 2050 to about 2.7 million square kilometers, accounting for 2.4% of the country, due to the continuing rising sea levels due to global warming on the planet, said on Thursday the Cuban director of the National Agency for Environment Thomas Escobar environment.

"If you continue latching today raise the average level of the ocean, then by 2050 we will lose nearly 2.7 million square kilometers of the earth's surface in Cuba, will also be flooded for about nine thousand houses," — said Escobar, whose words are quoted by local media.

Sea ice in the Arctic in September could not reach to a record low

The average area of Arctic sea ice in September fell to 4.61 million square kilometers, 310 square kilometers over a record low in 2007, experts told the National Information Center for Snow and Ice (NSIDC) USA.Earlier in September, has been fixed annual minimum ice area for the region: September 9, the figure was 4.33 million square kilometers. This is the second lowest result in the history of satellite observations after 2007, when the annual minimum, made on September 16, was 4.17 million square kilometers.The average area of Arctic sea ice in September 2011 was 2.43 million square kilometers less

A month area of Arctic sea ice has increased by 1.5 times!

The average area of Arctic sea ice in October 2010, was the third smallest in the period of satellite observations and reached 7.69 million square kilometers. This is a 1.60 million square kilometers less than the rates calculated on a number of observations of 1979-2000, but 920,000 square kilometers more record low, recorded in October 2007, reports fobos.tv. The surprise was the quick growth of ice. Satellite monitoring of the National Weather Service said the U.S. increased by 1.5 times the area! The average area of Arctic sea ice in September 2010 was 4.90 million square kilometers, 2.14 million square
