Shortage in Carbon Emission Budget, Says UN Climate

Shortage in Carbon Emission Budget, Says UN Climate

According to a new report, UN government now fears of fast shrinkage of the carbon emission budget. Global warming has been an issue from past many years across the world. It is basically caused by an increase in level of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases in the atmosphere.

The UN climate said that they feel ashamed of the earlier warnings given by them regarding the shortage of carbon budget. Smoke coming out of the chimneys, waste from various industries, burning of coal and many other factors are responsible for the emission of green house gases.

Two Volcanoes Erupt in Indonesia

Two Volcanoes Erupt in Indonesia

Two volcanoes that have erupted in Indonesia gave warnings for making preparations of flights and migration without any delay. The Indonesian Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation has advised people not to approach within 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) of Mount Sinabung.

Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra province released volcanic residue as high as 8,000 meters (26,246 feet), says State volcanologist, Surono. The eruptions are highest in recent days.

World’s Oceans Acidification Level on Rise

World’s Oceans Acidification Level on Rise

A group of scientists have a strong statement on acidification. They have affirmed that world's oceans acidification level can increase by 170% by 2100.

With passage of time, oceans are becoming more acidic. Experts have levied the blame of the same on human emissions of CO2. Scientists were of the view that if the condition persisted in the same manner then around 30% of the species will not able to survive.

The study led by the International Biosphere-Geosphere Programme is said to be present at global climate meeting, which will be held in Poland in next week.

Change in Forest Patterns Mapped by Google Earth

Change in Forest Patterns Mapped by Google Earth

According to a latest report, the forests are being studied with the help of a new high-resolution global map. This map can trace the findings related to the forest loss and gains and has been created with the help of Google Earth.

Sources have revealed that this interactive online tool is publically available. Also it can zoom its lenses to an extraordinarily high level of local detail or to a resolution of about 30m.

Humans are Responsible for Global Warming

Humans are Responsible for Cause of Global Warming

With the gradual increase in the field of science, new technologies are being developed that contribute a lot in the field of global warming. Global arming is basically caused by an increase in level of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases in the atmosphere.

Meeting to be Held in Warsaw for Advancing Steps towards a Global Climate Agreement

Meeting to be Held in Warsaw for Advancing Steps towards a Global Climate Agreement

Representatives from about 190 countries are gathering in Warsaw to come up with advance steps to reach the best global climate agreement.

Participants state that there is an increasing intellect of practicality regarding the level that should be achieved in any latest deal.

Due to the Russia's wish regarding the review of voting procedures, it is likely that the process would not work as expected. The meeting comes along with new cautions related to global levels of warming gases.

Ozone Chemicals Ban is Associated to Global Warming 'Pause'

Ozone Chemicals Ban is Associated to Global Warming 'Pause'

According to a latest report, the scientists are coming up with a conclusion that the ban on the ozone depleting chemicals have also resulted in a `pause' of increase in temperatures on the Earth.

The researchers are of the view that the CFC gases or the chlorofluorocarbon was responsible for an enormous whole in the ozone layer. But they also claim that these gases were also the cause of powerful greenhouse effect.

The scientists think presently that the ban on the ozone depleting gases has resulted in a halt in the rise in temperatures all over the world.

Amazon Deforestation Could Cause Shortage of Food and Water in US

Amazon Deforestation Could Cause Shortage of Food and Water in US

The gradual advancement in the field of science and technologies, new plants and industries has contributed a lot in the field of global warming. Global warming is also held responsible for change in climatic conditions and deforestation.

According to a climate simulation research lead by Princeton University, deforestation in Amazon forests could lead to shortage of food and water resources. It may also lead to significant reduction in the rain and snowfall in the areas of western United States.

Region of Antarctic Ice Dating Back 1.5 Million Years Found

Region of Antarctic Ice Dating Back 1.5 Million Years Found

As per a novel research published in the journal Climate of the Past, it has been unveiled that scientists have discovered a region of Antarctic ice, which is quite old.

If to go as per scientists, the ice dates back 1.5 million years. Lead researcher Hubertus Fischer of the University of Bern has affirmed that they have found the area in the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Palaeontologists have uncovered new confirmation that species have a tendency to therapist throughout times of arresting warming. A hotter planet could be a more modest planet if the confirmation of the past is any aide.

Specialists have more than once watched that tribal primates, stallions and deer dwindled throughout a hot spell called the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, 55 million years prior.
