The retreat of snow and ice accelerates warming twice as strong

Reduction in the area of snow and ice on the surface of the Earth affects the increase in temperature of the planet is two times stronger than previously thought, according to the publication Christian Science Monitor, citing a study by American scientists.

"Over the past 30 years, the so-called cooling capacity cryosphere — the earth's surface covered with snow and ice — is reduced to two times faster than the predicted global climate models," — says the publication.

Melting of snow and ice — one example of the so-called "positive feedback" when the two processes are mutually reinforcing. Reduction in

Likelihood of recurrence of the heat wave in the coming year is minimal

Rossiyskaya Gazeta "- federal issue № 5390 (14) of 26 January 2011

2010 ahead of the annual average temperature of 0.02 degrees previous record holder — 2005.

Last year was the champion, and other indicators. For the first time the average annual air temperature anomalies were + 5 degrees or more. Heat waves, more than 50 days to hold out in the summer in central Russia, was the largest natural disaster on record, and can be, and for the past 5000 years.

The past year in general is rich in many disasters. Devastating floods due to heavy rains to

Increase in water temperature of the oceans is especially dangerous amid a warming world

DURBAN, December 2. / Itar-Tass Paul Myltsev /. Increase in water temperature of the oceans is particularly dangerous on the background of a warming world, warn environmentalists. "We as scientists are extremely dismayed by the fact that the problem of the heating of the oceans ignored at climate talks here in Durban," — said the representative of the study of the oceans / UK / Carol Turley. She participates in the 17th Conference of the Framework Convention on Climate Change / UNFCCC /.

In the coming decades, said Turley, should expected average

In Moscow, the entire week will be warm and clear

During the week in the metropolitan area will be spring-like warmth and clear, the probability of precipitation appears after Wednesday. On it informs RIA Novosti referring to a specialist center weather "Phobos" on Monday, April 4.

"Muscovites waiting for warm days: day temperature of about plus 14 degrees, and at night — not less than 5 degrees with a plus sign," — told the agency. He explained that, in the coming week in the Moscow region will be supplied warm air from Europe, but in general the weather will affect the subtropical anticyclone. "The warmest day of the week

Global warming is temporarily canceled

Dramatic forecast of the pace of global warming is exaggerated, said University of Oregon researchers. According to their research, a scenario in which a doubling of CO? in the atmosphere as compared to pre-industrial levels would increase global temperatures 2-4,5 C, is unlikely to come true. In other words, the temperature of the mid-century will not grow as much.

Question the forecasts of the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, submitted in 2007, researchers made the excursion into the distant history. According to them, if we take into account not documented data on temperatures, which could

Climate sensitivity to the greenhouse effect may be less than expected

Warmer, no doubt. But how? (Photo Hermio82.)

The climate may be less sensitive to carbon dioxide than is commonly believed. And then the temperature rise in this century will be less than expected.

Such a surprising result led the analysis of the last ice age. But this data is only one climate model. While they can not be recreated with the help of others, experts do not give up the skeptical grimace.

It has long been known: the more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the more heat is trapped and the greater the temperature increases. But

Climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide was overestimated

Group of climate scientists from the U.S. and Spain, has determined that the climate is less sensitive to an increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide than previously thought. The article appeared in the scientific journal Science.

The object of the study researchers was the Last Glacial Maximum — a period during the last glacial period, when the total volume of ice was the highest (about 26-20 thousand years ago). Using data from previous studies, the researchers were able to reconstruct the temperature regime of the sea and on the land that time period.

After this, they

Record heat in Kamchatka

In the last day recorded two records of temperature, according meteonovosti.ru.

In the south of the Middle Volga observed extremely cold nights. In Saratov, the thermometer in the wee hours dispensed to reach 2.8, which is more than one degree below the record set in 1997, when at the meteorological stations of the minimum temperature was 4.2.

At the same time, in the far east of the country is experiencing record hot weather. September 3 in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky was the hottest day in the last 100 years! This past day maximum temperature reached 24.1 degrees, 0.9 degrees higher than the

2011 went to the collection of climate records WMO

This year among the ten hottest years according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), taking the bottom line in the list, which is compiled since 1850.

The air temperature was 0.41 degrees higher than the average for 1961-1990. "The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has reached new records. They are very rapidly approaching a level that leads to an increase in global average temperatures by 2-2.4 degrees. Scientists fear that this could cause far-reaching irreversible changes of the Earth, the biosphere and oceans, "- said the head of WMO, Michel Jarraud summit in Durban, South

History scam Global Warming

One gets the impression that our present life — is a solid scam. International scammers always have something to steal, constantly strive to foist it unnecessary medication, vaccinations, the warming …

2009. Recent years the theme of global warming — one of the most talked about in the world. We are told that factories and cars make the temperature around us higher and higher — blame carbon dioxide, or CO2. But is it? It's time to learn the truth. We present strong evidence that the guilt of man in changing the world's climate is actually There is no. Channel
