The CO2 emission levels or Carbon dioxide levels have been rising steadily and it’s causing concern, especially in Alaska. Data extracted from satellites and air crafts show that the amount of CO2 emitted from Alaska has increased by 70% between 1975-201 5 between October and December each year.
One a recent segment of Leading Edge on PBS, they talked about how climate change is destroying the Great Barrier Reef. The Great Barrier Reef is about the half the size of Texas, but is steadily growing smaller and dying due to the oceans rising temperatures. Two thirds
When you think of Antarctica you usually think of a frozen wasteland with ice and snow covering everything. A new study shows that might not always be the truth in the future as the earth’s temperatures rise. Based on a study from the University of Exeter they found
Extreme temperatures across different cities in India are going to 100°F in the last days. This climate change phenomenon is a threat to the health of India’s population because heat waves are expected to become more common and intense. According to some studies, the climate change in
Scientists have found that in the last year an increase of warm waters bleached corals of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The warm waters make the corals lose colors and turn white, which is an indicator that their metabolism has been affected. More than the half of
I was very interested to learn how hurricanes are formed. Some of the requirements are: the ocean water temperature needs to be a least 80 degrees Fahrenheit, the air must be warm, humid and unstable. Further research showed me that warmer ocean temperatures are being caused by climate
There are still some people that do not believe in climate change. A climate change example is the melted glaciers in different parts of the world such as Greenland and Antarctica. The melting glaciers can be considered as a symbol related to global warming. Many scientists are trying
A study by researchers from MIT and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich shows that rainfall could increase by 3 to 15 percent for every degree Celsius the planet warms. If the average global temperatures rise by 4 degrees over the next hundred years because of
