The past year was among the ten warmest on Earth for more than 130 years of instrumental observations and became the hottest in history for the United States except Hawaii and Alaska. To such conclusion experts NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) USA.According to estimates of NASA, in 2012 in ninth place in the ranking of the warmest with an average global temperature of about 14,6 ° C,
which is higher than the norm, which was set at the middle of the last century. In this case, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States has put 2012 Read more [...]
Scientists are in a panic. Climate crushes all bounds. Indeed, by using the supercomputer models show that if as a result of global warming, the average temperature on Earth will increase by no more than 2 degrees, humanity can live in peace. He will not get any natural disasters - flooding of coastal cities, catastrophic floods and droughts. However, for this we will have to "tighten belts": keep the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere at 450 parts per million (it now has close to 400 millionth shares).
But things are moving differently. And most importantly - changes Read more [...]
The past year was among the ten warmest calendar years in the history of weather observations, ongoing since 1880. This was said in a Tuesday report from the Institute for Space Studies Goddard at the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration / NASA /.
According to experts, the average global temperature last year was 14.6 degrees Celsius, 0.6 degrees above the indicator in the middle of the last century, taken by NASA as the basic starting point.
Thus, in 2012 took the ninth place in the ranking of the warmest years on record. First place still holds in 2010, the average temperature Read more [...]
Abnormal cold, the recent increase, is not evidence of infidelity theory Global Warming. Frosts are just a harbinger of future climate change. Snowfalls in the Middle East, as well as freeze in California that occurred this winter, it is quite likely in the face of rising temperatures. "With global warming, the regions of the Earth, which have cold winters, yet will continue to face the cold weather," - says climatologist Michael Mann of the University of Pennsylvania. However, "a change of climate abnormal weather will occur more often,
whereas the usual weather will rarity. "

Scientists were lucky to remove the video as broken off a glacier the size of Manhattan. Apocalyptic footage, and what sound during all of this, is mesmerizing power and scope of what is happening. At the end of the video shows the extent of reduction of the ice shell in recent years …
Stop climate change is already too late, but some of its most dangerous consequences can be prevented.Can we call our generation altruists? Are we worried about what will happen to our grandchildren and their children? Or do we agree with the character of Groucho Marx who once said, "Why should I care about future generations? What did they do to me? "
According to lead author of the new study Nigel Arnell of the University of Reading (UK), an unpleasant truth is that even the most radical efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 will give a negligible effect. By 2050, Read more [...]
Will other maritime waterways and coastal erosion pattern. The height of the waves rise near the eastern coast of Australia and Indonesia and near Antarctica, but the decrease in some other areas, according to an international team of scientists.
Waves in the mediation of continuous exchange of heat, power, water, steam and gases between the atmosphere and ocean. They always change the height, frequency and direction of the wind and other factors, which, in turn, depend on the climate.

In Britain, will remember how in 2012, weather stability derailed, and the country is visited by drought, flooding, drought again. British showers were so powerful that quite resembled the Deluge. And so in every corner of the world began to happen a lot more abnormal natural disasters. Recently they have started to become particularly predictable.In the new winter season, China had to fight with the coldest winter in almost 30 years. Brazil is dominated by the terrible heat wave. Eastern Russia so hard frost in late 2012 that the cold in Yakutsk recently stopped working traffic light. Cold Read more [...]
Global warming is already having a major impact in the U.S., and in the coming years, it will take a more far-reaching. These findings are contained in a report released Friday, the preliminary report of the U.S. government over climate change.
In preparation for this major document of over one thousand pages of over 300 leading U.S. expert climatologists. Now, this document will be open for public comment and the final version of it will appear in March 2014.
Scientists warn about several serious consequences associated with warming. First of all, it is that the extremely high temperatures Read more [...]
The past 2012 was a record number of hazards in Russia over the last 14 years - cases of heavy snow and rain, gale force winds, extreme heat or cold, According to the press service of Hydromet.According to meteorologists, in 2012, in Russia there were 469 cases of severe weather systems and meteorological phenomena, inflicting substantial damage. The number of registered hazards compared with 2011 increased by almost 1.5 times."The high frequency of heavy precipitation events has been, strong wind ... but on the parameters (not all of these cases) reached the criteria of hazards, but largely Read more [...]
Fire covered two Australian states - New South Wales and Victoria. While fire bypasses major cities - Sydney and Melnburn, but that could change for the worse. Firefighters still can not stop the spread of fire. The air temperature in the shade in some areas exceeds 40 degrees. Rain in the south-east Australia was not long ago. "In the coming days, the temperature can be much higher. And the wind is unpredictable, we are preparing for the worst," - said the fire inspector Mark Williams.

Meteorologists recorded a record high in the Arctic temperature anomaly - the first time in the waters of the Arctic Ocean were recorded average temperature deviation from the norm by 7 degrees, the director of the Russian Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand.
"In 2012 there were recorded very unusual records. For the first time in the waters of the Arctic (positive) annual mean temperature anomaly reached 7 degrees. This is a fantastic value. Even when the average daily temperature is different from the normal 7 degrees - this is a significant event, but the deviation of mean annual Read more [...]

The models describing the future warming and sea level rise is not considered the impact of melting ice on the water temperature and, consequently, the world. And it is in vain, says U.S. climate scientist James Hansen.Catastrophic sea level rise, which we expect by the end of the century, can give a side effect, so far eluded scientists. Melting icebergs cool the sea around Greenland and Antarctica, so that the average surface temperature of the planet will drop a degree or two.
This conclusion is not in the published paper comes climatologist James Hansen of NASA's Space Research Institute Read more [...]
This winter has seen all Europe: the prickly Russian frosts and heavy snowfalls. The feeling is that the climate is becoming more severe and begins to come true story disaster film "The Day After Tomorrow." As if the Gulf Stream is cooled, turn your water back, Europe freezes, followed by the rest of the world. Is such a scenario is possible in the near future? And if so, why is this happening in the era of global warming?
Today, we've collected a climatologist, Doctor of Geography, Chair of Meteorology and Climatology, Faculty of Geography, Moscow State University, Professor Read more [...]
In China - record cold. Although by our standards minus 18 is not the limit, the local climate is a rarity. Experts say that this was not the last 30 years. Because of the cold snap froze even mountain waterfalls. Now the once turbulent flows more like stalactites. Visitors to the park now have a rare opportunity to walk on the water and leave it dry.
