New data from the world's leading climate scientists, are depressing. It appears that 2010 will be the hottest in the history of mankind. In addition, it will bring a lot of destruction.

As reported today, scientists from the U.S. National Data Center for the study of snow and ice, the level of Arctic sea ice fell to a record low for this time of year. Every day disappears about 40 thousand square kilometers of ice. The last time almost as intense it melted in 2007.

Meanwhile, researchers at the Polar

Scientists believe that the frequent downpours in Ukraine triggered Earths core


Scientists suggest that the core of the Earth warms from the inside, and the heat is a flood rises to the surface, so the heat, frequent showers, storms and hail will be no abnormality, and the usual climate pattern.

With increasing temperature, the periods of rainfall will become more persistent. "One of the characteristics of global warming is increasing the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events" — explained climate scientist Olga Pahalyuk.

Over the Volga steppes zone has formed a strong heat. A cool air moves from Europe and the Atlantic,

Never before in the Arctic Sea was not as warm

Northern Hemisphere in the VIII-XIII centuries, it is comparable to the present — it is the opinion of many experts. Controversy is only one issue — the scale of the phenomenon: it was unclear whether this so-called medieval warm period, also called the small climatic optimum, a global phenomenon or whether it took place just north of the equator. But the fact that the temperature at the time beyond the current 1.5-2 degrees is generally accepted. Now a team of German researchers put this idea into question — at least in regard to the temperature of the water in
