Significant changes in the Arctic region in the next decade is expected. This was stated by the director of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute Ivan Frolov, speaking at the International Forum "The Arctic: the present and the future."He noted that the relatively long-term forecasting climatic situation in the Arctic among the scientific community there is no consensus. Frolov noted that some scientists believe that the Arctic warming is waiting, others believe that the coming cold snap. However, to answer this question, we need to conduct more research.At the same time, the Read more [...]
Because of climate change in Indonesia in 2012, has experienced more cyclones than it was a few years ago. Meteorologists believe that in the future this trend will intensify.
Press secretary of the Agency for disaster mitigation Sutopo Purva Juvonen said: "Global warming leads to more intense formation of cumulonimbus clouds that trigger the formation of a larger number of cyclones." Mr Sutopo argues that natural disasters of 1200, borne by Indonesians annually, 36% are the sole responsibility of cyclones.Peak cyclogenesis Indonesian meteorologists expected in March-April. Other consequences Read more [...]
The earliest spring on the East Coast of the U.S. in the last 150 years due to abnormally high temperatures in 2010 and 2012.Spring primroses appeared on the U.S. East Coast for a few weeks before the "necessary", scientists have linked unusually early onset of spring with global climate change."We're already seeing primroses that usually appear at least three weeks later, and some" hasty "in six weeks," - said the head of research fellow at Harvard University, Charles Davis (Charles Davis).Experts from Harvard, Boston and the University of Wisconsin (USA) conducted 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 [...]
When it comes to global warming, various weather events convince skeptics who doubt the reality of climate change, better than all the scientists. According to a recent survey conducted by the agency Associated Press, in 2012, the number of Americans concerned about climate change, was 80% of the total number of respondents. For comparison, in2009-m when a similar study was carried out for the last time, the number of Americans worried not exceed 73%.Curiously, anxiety and confidence in the reality of climate change most rapidly growing among people who previously considered themselves to skeptics.

By the end of the 21st century, temperatures on Earth would be four degrees above, the increased number of hurricanes and droughts. This is stated in the report submitted by the World Bank.
The world also could face rising sea levels, food shortages and extreme weather changes, mainly due to the injury of the poor countries, the "Russian service Bi-bi-si." The authors of the study with the believe that such a scenario is not inevitable.According to experts, the global community's goal is not to prevent the temperature rise more than two degrees, can still be achieved if the implementation Read more [...]
Country is turning into a lifeless desert - is the conclusion of the Tajik Academy of Sciences, scientists in their research. For Tajikistan, the situation is equivalent to such environmental disaster.
Mass cutting of trees and reduction of pasture - these causes of desertification Tajik land called environmentalists. In a country where about 70% of the population throughout the year have problems with electricity, wood is becoming the only way to heat homes. Illegal logging does not stop tough laws, no environmental structure.
A quarter-century ago, the forest area in Tajikistan is 15 percent Read more [...]

In the United States grows scandal involving the falsification of the temperature of the past. In the frame-up charged by none other than the NASA Institute for Space Studies. Authoritative institution with an extensive database of observations of temperature, time and again provided its archives for research organizations use to support the conduct of research in the field of climate change. However, the recent finding that the same historical data provided to customers in 2008 and 2012, several of them. Journalists accuse NASA of the pages of various online publications claim that the Space Read more [...]
Center for Economic Policy and Research says that any problem of climate change can be overcome, spending less time at work and spend more time gaming and leisure. The best model of working order, able to preserve the planet, will be a model similar to the European, which provides for a longer vacation, enough time for various types of recreation, rational distribution of work hours.Of American labor model, which implies a rather long work week, and a little vacation, is phased out. As soon as a reduction in the number of hours each year at least 0.5%, already in 2100, the amount of harmful greenhouse Read more [...]
Company Maplecroft calculated the climate vulnerability index for the countries of the world, which was obtained from the analysis of 42 different factors that reflect the social, economic and environmental impacts of global climate change.
According to Maplecroft Global climate change is the biggest threat to Bangladesh, India and Madagascar. Other countries, such as Nepal, Mozambique, the Philippines, Haiti, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and Burma close the top ten countries for which global warming will be associated with a variety of negative consequences (Developing countries are predominantly agrarian, Read more [...]
The problem of climate change today is extremely relevant. Meteorological observations suggest that over the past 100 years, the average surface temperature has increased by 0.7 degrees, including a 0.5 - for the last 50 years. And 11 of the last 12 years were the hottest in the entire period of instrumental meteorological observations.
Effects of climate changes are evident in the increasing variability of the weather (extreme cold, alternating with sudden thaws in winter, the increase in extremely hot days in the summer), to increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events (storms, Read more [...]
Global climate change leads to a weight loss of mountain glaciers, the press center of the UN.

(REUTERS / Stefano De Luigi / VII Network / Le Monde Magazine)An international team of researchers studied the climate history of the North-West Africa by tree rings. The samples contain not only information about the climate of the area in the Middle Ages, but the forecast of climate change in the coming decades.Overall, the researchers traced the climatic changes that have occurred in what is now Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia from about 1179 to the present day, although the oldest of the samples (it was found in Morocco) dates from the year 883.
