Roasted earth at the poles

Over the last decade, the Earth's atmosphere has warmed more than previously thought. Climate scientists have changed their views on the scope and pace of Global Warming after the data were obtained from meteorological observations in the Arctic, according to The Telegraph.

Materials of the University of East Anglia — one of the few sources of data on changes in global temperature. They reflect the results of the measurements from the end of XIX century. Recently, however, the credibility of this information has been undermined: in 2009, hackers broke into the servers of the University by publishing private correspondence of

Climate change in the 25 years the lake warmed by 1.1 degrees of the Earth

The surface temperature of the Earth's largest lakes in 1985 increased by an average of 0.45 degrees Celsius every 10 years, or about 1.1 degrees over the entire period, and most of all warmed lakes in the middle and high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. This was reported by the authors of an article published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Philip Schneider (Philipp Schneider) and Simon Hook (Simon Hook) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of NASA satellite data on surface temperature 167 lakes in different regions of the planet. They found that the average temperature increase per decade in the

Martians and the new twin of Earth

Afternoon near the equator of Mars the temperature rises to zero degrees Celsius, and in the summer afternoon, and up to plus-20. But usually there is cold. And in most of the surface — very, very cold. Uncomfortable place to live, whatever you say. But humanity afford to heat Mars and, in fact, make it to atmosfEsli to Robert, humanity would proceed to terraform Mars in 2150-m and finish it in just one millennium. By the standards of planetary evolution — for the moment.

Like many scientists and engineers who have spoken before with studies of terraforming Mars, Zubrin
