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.

Meteorologist Found Ways to Predict Extent of Heat Waves

With the gradual advancement in the field of science and technology, new plants and industries are being developed that contribute a lot in global warming. Global warming is also held responsible for the change in the climatic conditions.

From the past many years, scientists are trying their level best to reduce the effect of an increase in global warming. As per a latest report, meteorologists have found some methods to predict the extent of these killer heat waves. They have now the ability to predict the heat waves of up to three weeks in advance.

Australia's 'Carbon Budget' Full by 2020: Report

Australia-Carbon-Budge

According to a latest report, Australia has already eaten about two-thirds of its share of the `carbon budget'. As a result the country is now required to drastically escalate its emissions reduction target.

The study, conducted by consultancy firm Ecofys at the behest of WWF Australia, says that Australia should positively reduce its carbon emission to at least 25% by the year 2020, based on 2000 levels.

Link between Pacific Ocean’s Changing Temperatures and Tornado Occurrence in US Found

Link between Pacific Ocean’s Changing Temperatures and Tornado Occurrence in US Found

A research has been carried out by a group of researchers from the University of Missouri (MU). As per which, they have found a connection between changing temperatures of Pacific Ocean and locations, where tornadoes take place in the United States.

In order to reach at the above given result, study researchers have assessed 56,457 tornado-like events that has taken place from 1950 to 2011. After assessing the same, the study researchers were able to reach at the above given result that when Pacific Ocean temperatures were warmer then the US has experienced 20.3% more tornadoes.
