Latest Effects of global warming Stories
Temperatures are rising four times faster in the Artic than the global average, a new University of Melbourne study shows.
The Sustainable Consumption Institute research claims food which families now take for granted, such as meat and fresh vegetables, could become too expensive for many if global temperatures rise in line with the current trends and reach 4°C within the lifetime of many people.
The study is the first to give a comprehensive projection for this long perspective, based on observed sea-level rise over the past millennium, as well as on scenarios for future greenhouse-gas emissions.
The sea level of the eastern coast of the United States is accelerating at a much faster rate than the country's other coasts due to global warming, claim researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
In what is being called the first controlled ocean acidification experiment ever conducted in shallow coastal waters, an international team of experts has created a miniature laboratory in the Great Barrier Reef in order to simulate anticipated future conditions in the waters of the region's ecosystem.
Paleoclimate researchers have studied ancient skeletons from microscopic plankton from the Miocene period to better understand our climate 12 to 5 million years ago.
The dramatic melt-off of Arctic sea ice due to climate change is hitting closer to home than millions of Americans might think.
The battle over climate change is heating up again this week with a proposed bill from North Carolina state legislators who are looking to ignore a rising sea level prediction for the sake of coastal economic development.
Researchers from Denmark’s University of Copenhagen have gained new insight into the loss of ice mass in Greenland’s glaciers thanks to a chance discovery of 80-year-old photo plates discovered in a Danish basement.
Climate change is a substantial and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It might be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions. Climate change is a result of factors that include oceanic processes, biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received buy Earth, volcanic eruptions, and plate tectonics, and human induced alterations...
The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...
If you live Honolulu Hawaii or the surrounding low elevation area’s this is what you can roughly expect to see with impacts of the three features below when it comes to your heating and cooling budget. The above graph shows the situations that occurred during previous phases of all three events such as normal conditions along with EL-Nino and La-Nina. During a normal cycle it is easy to see that the cooling degree days during March were around 355.5 days. During the same month of March...
El-Nino is marked with having warmer waters in the Pacific Ocean, so how can it have impacts on Austin Texas. This is a look at what occurred during an EL-Nino event as we evaluate three months of the cycle. January 2012- March 2012 La-Nina Impacts on Austin TX Climate January 2012 Normal temperatures for the month are usually around 40-60F. Examining what occurred during the month of January during an EL-Nino event the temps where average 40% of the month. While, 21% of the month...
