Scientists have found that over the past few decades, the allocation of soil carbon dioxide around the world came at an increasing rate due to global warming and to date has reached 98 billion tons per year in terms of carbon, the researchers reported in an article published Thursday in the journal Nature .
This value is ten times higher than the combined emissions from all human activities on the planet.
"There are several possible explanations for this, but the most credible is that the average temperature increase throughout the world increases the rate of decomposition of organic Read more [...]
Coronal mass emissions — the emission of large quantities of the substance of the solar corona in interstellar space — can change its direction and to reach the Ground much more often than previously thought. Article scientists, in which they make such a conclusion, published in the journal Nature Communications. Briefly described on the portal ScienceNOW.
When a substance is released during coronal mass ejections (coronal mass ejections — CME) and moving with great speed, reaches the near-earth space, it may cause malfunction of electrical equipment. Therefore, Read more [...]
Planes forget monumental c residues. Can you invite it? Photograph: Cristian Ghe/FlickrA:That’s two questions, Dana. You’re alone hypothetic to ask one. But I’ll be generous and result both. Let me scratch by elaborating on the head and determination of c offsets for commercial-grade sheet go.

The FAA estimates that trey pct of the man’s glasshouse gas emissions seed from planes, and that’s not level mentioning the over-the-counter Read more [...]
The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a historical high. According to the world meteorological organization - the UN body - the content, for example, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was last year 386,8 parts per million. Over the last 20 years, greenhouse gases have increased by 27.5%.
\"The main long-lived greenhouse gases - carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide - have reached record levels since the start of the industrial era. And this despite the slowdown in economic growth.\"

On Earth begins the sixth Great extinction\". This valuation was made by an international group of scientists who studied the condition of the seas of our planet. Their findings have shocked them: oceanic ecosystems degrade with such great speed that it is already possible to speak about the beginning of global extinction of underwater flora and fauna.
The planet survived for five catastrophic periods of global extinction, each of which fundamentally changed the biosphere. During one of them, for example, dinosaurs disappeared. The current extinction will be the most rapid, in geologic terms Read more [...]
Volcanoes and the myth of global warming
Professor Ian Plimer well said on this topic. If you've read his book, you will agree that this is a great conclusion.
Here's the bomb. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull, and highlighting them in just 4 days nullified every effort to reduce the CO2 emissions made by you for 5 years - all of you. And now, given the eruption Grimsvotn may 21, 2011, the battle can be considered lost.
Of course you know about this villainous carbon dioxide emissions which we are trying to reduce.
Of course, it's hard to realize that all efforts to reduce Read more [...]
In one study, the United States, published on Monday, says that the emission of smoke in economically fast developing Asian countries largely responsible for stopping global warming after 1998. The cooling effect caused by sulphur emissions, although emissions of greenhouse gases has skyrocketed.
The study increased the chances to slow down the process of climate change as soon as possible, otherwise the developing economy will eventually collapse due to pollution.
As shown by various data, global temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008, while anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide Read more [...]
