Meteorologist Found Ways to Predict Extent of Heat Waves

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.

FUEGO to Find out Blazes across US

FUEGO to Find out Blazes across US

As per a new research by the researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, a new fire monitoring system has been developed used to monitor the fire-prone regions across the U. S. This new monitoring system is named as the Fire Urgency Estimator in Geosynchronous Orbit (FUEGO), which uses the sensitive satellites to perform its task.

Amazon Facing Higher Risk of Losing Rainforest than Thought

Amazon Facing Higher Risk of Losing Rainforest than Thought

It has been revealed by researchers that southern part of the Amazon rainforest is facing much serious threats of being vanished than what was suggested by the models used in the most recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

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.

2047, Is the Expected Dooms Year for the World: Research

2047, Is the Expected Dooms Year for the World: Research

According to a new study, the scientists have pinpointed the probable dates locating, when the cities and ecosystems around the world will experience hotter or hottest climates, like never before.

Hypothetically these dates could be 2018 for Singapore, 2031 for Mexico, 2036 for Cairo and 2043 for Phoenix and Honolulu.

Also according to the researchers the whole world is going to doom in 2047, these dates are fictitious, but are the outcome of many investigations and researches by the scientists.

Worse Scenario May be Seen During El Nino Years

Worse Scenario May be Seen During El Nino Years

A panel of researchers from the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research has unveiled that climate change could aggravate El Nino years' effect. The impact is, reportedly, marked by a significant warming in eastern Pacific waters and by changing rainfall patterns.

For a long time, researchers have been focusing on the El Nino-Southern Oscillation. The aim has been to find out how the same would be affected by the increasing global warming resulting from greenhouse gases.

One in Canada’s Arctic’s Last Asylums also at Risk from Changing Temperatures

One in Canada’s Arctic’s Last Asylums also at Risk from Changing Temperatures

An association of researchers from the Laurentian University, Queen's University and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment recently uncovered that even the last few havens in Canada's Arctic are, seemingly, facing risks from global warming.

One of the final refuges has been found as giving in to the increasing temperatures. Not only people have been facing difficulties in living in such a fast changing environment, but polar bears as well are trying to tackle certain risks.

Oceans’ Health at Huge Risk from Climate Change: IPSO

Oceans’ Health at Huge Risk from Climate Change: IPSO

The International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) had lately carried out an investigation that revealed that multiple risks are being faced by oceans at present.

The oceans of the world were realizing a decline in their health. Also, the rate of this decrease was faster as compared to rate expected earlier.

The group claimed that the oceans are, seemingly, being heated due to the changes in the climate. Also, pollution and overfishing affected these to a great extent. The change in oceans was evident from their less alkaline nature over time by adsorbing CO2.

USA can Reduce Greenhouse Gases Emissions by 17%

A draft report has been prepared that will be submitted to the United Nations. The draft report has unveiled that if the USA wants to reduce its greenhouse gases emissions relative to 2005 levels then it needs to make certain change.

The changes include decline in pollution coming from power plants as well as to bring a decline in the level of methane leaks. The U. S. State Department said that if these and other changes are included than the country is able to reduce its emissions by 17% and that too by 2020.
