Climate experts warn that we should expect more natural disasters

November 3. Weather disasters — from the sudden snowfall in the north-eastern United States and to the record floods in Thailand — hit us more and more. Global warming is likely to cause all of these extreme weather events, according to Associated Press. The report states that the number of such disasters will grow and maybe some places will "limit to life." The report of the Nobel Prize of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will be published in a few weeks, after a meeting in Uganda. The report says that there are at least 2/3 probability that climate extremes

Disappointing outlook

Global warming will have such an impact on the weather in the world, that some areas will soon become uninhabitable.

Change that is more difficult to analyze, to cause damage to both human life and the economy, according to a new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), is at the disposal of employees Associated Press

The final version of the report will be published in the coming weeks, after the meeting of the Board in Uganda. Experts say that in the U.S. by the end of the century a strong

Global warming triggers natural disasters

Meteorologists estimate that global warming of hurricanes, floods, fires and heat waves to the middle and end of this century will only intensify.

Scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) prepared preliminary report on how global warming will affect the number of natural disasters. The final report will be presented at the end of November, after the conference to be held in Uganda IPCC.

Future scenario

Now the planet is warming at a rate of about 0.74 degrees per century. And this fact, most researchers agree. The warmer the air, according to meteorologists, is dangerous since it

Today climate change is unique to the last 20,000 years

STOCKHOLM, Nov. 1. / Itar-Tass Irina Dergacheva /. Inhabitants of the earth have become accustomed to the climate changes, they occur frequently and recorded by scientists. Information about them is an argument against the claim that global warming is caused by human factor. However, the Swedish climate scientist Svante Bjork of the University of Lund in his study argues that in the last 20 thousand years, no global warming, which refers to the simultaneous warming in both hemispheres, was not observed, and the current situation is exceptional.

The scientific method of Bjork is to analyze

In the U.S., created a map of the country's global warming

Today no surprise the accuracy with which scientists calculate the rate of change in global temperature.

It has long been estimated, where and how it has changed over the years. However, American researchers have been able to excel. Information about how the temperature has changed in the U.S. over the past 100 years it was not enough. Scientists estimate that global warming, despite its name, affects different states in different ways, and decided to create a "full-time on the" map of temperature change. The researchers were able to create a map on which each of the states observed in

Influential allies have wrestlers with global warming

Scientists have found out that around 1960 the Earth's oceans and land absorb become more greenhouse gas emissions than previously. According to experts, today on our planet is absorbed by greenhouse gases is already twice the pre-industrial era. It turns out that nature helps a person to slow down the process of climate change. That's what it said study co-author Ashley Ballantyne: "We have done very little to reduce emissions, but the Earth reaches out a helping hand." According to the data available to researchers, in 1960 the sea, plants and soil absorbed from the atmosphere 2.4 billion tonnes

Earth's ice cap has reached the minimum

Area of the ice cap at the North Pole of the planet this summer shrank to a record low in the history of satellite observations. In 1975, when the glaciers have measured for the first time, their area of eight million square kilometers, and now only four. This August Arctic daily becoming smaller by 75,000 kilometers. At this rate, it can and does melt. But scientists give pessimistic forecasts do not hurry.

Fry Arctic summer. About plus five returned northern birds, and the ocean is full of puppies. Puppies — is a professional term. Call these little ice

The planet is warming, and winters colder in Europe

"So what that the Arctic ice is melting? We do not live in the Arctic, "- so says the majority of the European population. Belief in global warming, the Europeans diminished after abnormally cold winters.

Convince people took Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Cornell University, Charles Green and Senior Fellow Bruce Monger. According to scientists, the man in the street can hardly imagine how are certain processes in the atmosphere and oceans. In a scientific paper published in the Journal of Oceanography and colleagues argue that global warming and the melting of Arctic sea ice is directly related

Arctic warming turns the bushes in the trees

On the slopes of Polar Urals (Photo BC Forbes).

Tundra, by definition, cold treeless terrain. But Mark Macias-Faure from Oxford University (UK) and colleagues found that in some places in the Eurasian Arctic dwarf willow and alder in the last decade were turned into trees.

The reason — the warming.

About 30 years ago, the trees there almost was not. Now 10-15% of the southern part of the north-west of the Eurasian tundra, which stretches from Finland to Western Siberia, occupied shrubs, rising by more than two meters.

The change was first attracted the attention of scientists when

Mankind will destroy not Nibiru and the Mayan calendar, it will kill the lack of resources and 8000000000

Any Nibiru and Mayan calendars concern only those who are unfamiliar with astronomy and history, but the scholars to focus more on, is it really so wrong one computer program from forty years ago, predicted the social and economic collapse and mass extinction of humanity in the XXI century.   Forty years ago, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) was created a computer model World3, which conducted the calculations, which brought amazing results. None of the critical resources (including, for example, iron ore is of decent quality), human civilization has no reserves, which would enable it to survive the XXI
