The causes and consequences of climate change

Today many pursues obsession that they are also more hot than cold. It is self-suggestion, of course. More precisely, the suggestion from the outside. "Greenhouse effect — people say, wiping the sweat from his forehead. — Climate change. Antarctic ice melt. We have to live away from the sea, until it swallowed a large piece of coastal waters. True, it is not clear — where to hide from the ozone hole? .. "But if a person is hot, it is not from global warming. And if the radio report that this year set a record temperature for a certain number

Global warming — the evidence from skeptics

A group of scientists known for their skepticism about the theories of climate change, to re-examine two centuries of global temperature data and found strong evidence for the fact that the Earth is hotter.

Lead author Richard Muller of the University of California at Berkeley (USA) only at the beginning of this year, members of Congress, there are concerns that in the XX century, there was a significant warming.

And his project Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) has completed processing of the temperature, since 1800, from 15 sources, including the World Meteorological Organization and meteovedomstva U.S. and UK. Conclusion: Since

Global warming: melting not only ice, but animals

Global warming, as it turns out, affects not only the size of the ice cover in the Arctic, but animals with plants. According to a recent study, the gradual increase in the Earth's temperature will lead to the fact that even large predators over time much ground. But this is not the worst.

According to the Singapore scientists, many animals and plants are gradually reduced in size by global warming, according to Sky News. This is due to the fact that by increasing the temperature of the planet, the animals will have to spend more energy and this decrease,

In Antarctica was colder — say U.S. scientists

In Antarctica, the last 35 years it has become much colder, and the temperature continues to fall, despite the global warming observed in the world, the conclusion made by U.S. researchers.

While the temperature of the rest of the continents increased over the last century, Antarctica is resisting the trend, although the reasons for this remain a mystery.

Over the last century the average temperature of the world's growing every ten years by 0.06 degrees Celsius. The exception was the period between 1979-1998 years, when the warming trend was more pronounced — 0.19 degrees Celsius.

Data from the meteorological

Another consequence of warming oceans: reproduction of cholera bacilli

Scientists and environmentalists have always been concerned about the possible effects of climate change. But who would have thought that, due to higher water temperatures in the seas and oceans will increase the concentration of pathogens, such as bacteria Vibrio, which causes people to severe food poisoning, gastroenteritis and even sepsis.

But it is true and it has been proven in the report, presented by the two-day conference in Brussels on climate change that is taking place these days. In the 200-page document details the results of more than 100 research projects funded by the European Union for more than

Antarctic ice and sea level rise: unanswered questions

How much sea levels will rise as a result of global warming? There is no clear answer to this question is no. Most often cited the IPCC assessment, but it is inaccurate, since the experts decided on the most conservative figures — just because of the huge number of unknowns.

One of the many "x's" — Antarctica, to predict the state of which is incredibly difficult. A recent review of the research in the journal Nature Geoscience perfectly sums up the state of our knowledge of the West Antarctic ice sheet.

Antarctica is divided in two parts of the

Belarus has seen the most global warming in the Northern Hemisphere

Chief of the hydro-meteorological monitoring and fund data Republican Hydrometeorological Center Victor Miller said that the warming in Belarus has led to a shift in the agro-climatic regions of 80-120 km from south to north, reports ALE.BY.

The average annual temperature in the country has increased over the last 20 years by 1.1 degrees. In the northern hemisphere during the same period, the average temperature has increased by an average of 0.8 degrees, BelTA informs.

In general, steady warming observed in the republic since 1989. Among other features of climate change in Belarus representative Hydrometeocentre called the greatest temperature

Sea off Antarctica warmed up to the bottom

During the expedition for seven months, scientists have studied the changes in the Southern Ocean. The main conclusion drawn by the oceanographers — poslenie for 26 years in the Weddell Sea deep water warmed even, not just superficial.

May 20 scientific research vessel "Polarstern" Institute for Polar Marine Research Alfred Wegener returned to the port of Bremerhaven (Germany) from an expedition to the Weddell Sea (it is in the Southern Ocean off the coast of West Antarctica). The expedition lasted for seven months, and in the studies involved 200 scientists from 15 countries. Members of the
