The Harsh Reality of Climate Change

When the World Bank recently stated that Climate Change is a real imminent threat to the peace of the world has to be a wake up call to all those Republican climate change deniers. Heaven forbid we should shutter the fact that oil profits could suffer. But, like Scrooge himself stated if the multitudes suffer and die so-be-it and decrease the surplus population is the mindset of too many of the powers that be. The real scary thought though is tha ..

Volcanic Eruptions May Cause Climat Variations

It has long been known that volcanic activity can cause short-term variations in climate. Now, researchers at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany), together with colleagues from Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA) have found evidence that the reverse process also occurs: Climate affects volcanic activity. Their study is now online in the international journal Geology. In 1991, it was a disaster for the vill ..

Hot Tips: Set Up Your Organic Hydroponics Gardening in Frosty Climate

Winter is the best month to start off your indoor hydroponic gardening and it's a time to assess indoor gardening methods and equipment to match the harsh climates of colder weather. The time is more pleasant and suitable for indoor planting rather than hot climate wherein growers spend capitals on air conditioning tools, fans and electricity to keep their rooms at normal temperature suitable for plants. Start finishing your garden place where th ..

The Cold, Hard Truth of a Change in Temperature

Hands up if you're a fan of winter. Do you enjoy snowball fights and sledging, wrapping up warm and drinking mugs of hot chocolate. All of these are attractive ideas that make winter extremely enjoyable. However, consider the flip side; shorter days, darker nights and miserable weather, all of which can make the journey to work a nightmare and ruin plans in an instant. Winter is a season which comes around annually and whether you love or hate it ..

Designing an Energy-Efficient Home Based On Climate Conditions

The design of a house is largely determined by the climate or weather systems in its locations. For instance, countries with temperate or four-season climate cycles have houses that are equipped with heating systems or at least a fireplace. The seasonal snow, blizzards and year-round generally cold weather make it necessary to design a house that can provide protection against extreme cold. Material availability Consequently, the materials used f ..

Our Changing Climate

Climate change appears in the news regularly and there is good reason behind the appearances as rising temperatures are plunging us into an eventual extinction of all species on our planet. Cause of climate change and global warming are well documented as increasing populations require places to live and cars to drive. More cars mean more greenhouse gases in our environment and as more homes are built natural habitats are destroyed to make room f ..

Scientists Continued to Study the Link Between Climate and Gray Snapper

Their latest study projects that one common coastal species found in the southeast U.S., gray snapper, will shift northwards in response to warming coastal waters. In a study published online December 20 in the journal PLOS ONE, researchers from the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) and the University of North Florida developed projections of gray snapper distribution under several climate change scenarios. Gray snapper (Lutjanus griseus ..

Human-Caused Climate Change Signal Emerges From the Noise

The team looked at geographical patterns of atmospheric temperature change over the period of satellite observations. The team's goal of the study was to determine whether previous findings of a 'discernible human influence' on tropospheric and stratospheric temperature were sensitive to current uncertainties in climate models and satellite data. The troposphere is the lowest portion of earth's atmosphere. The stratosphere sits just above the tro ..

The Effects Of Global Warming

Global Since the late 1800's, the global average temperature has increased. Climatologists (scientists who study climate) have analysed the global warming that has occurred since the late 1800's. Human activities contribute to global warming by enhancing Earth's natural greenhouse effect. The main human activities that contribute to global warming are the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and the clearing of land. They say tha ..

Global Warming

Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it makes our planet a habitable place. But certain gases are causing the temperature of earth rising. It is the most serious environmental crisis that world is facing today. Carbon dioxide is identified as the main cause of global warming. The changes in climates occurring the world over are attributed to ..

Global Warming-How It Could Spark World War III

These Days global warming is a very hot topic and little wonder, seeing as the earth grows hotter with each passing year. For a long time now the effect of man's industrialization and technological progress has quietly yet continuously eked away at the delicate balance of the planet's atmosphere and ecosystem, but within the last 30 or so years the pace of this damage has markedly accelerated! Downplaying Global Warming In much the same way that ..

The Global Warming Swindle: Causes, Effects & Facts About Global Warming

Is Global Warming a Hoax? As climate change affects our weather, questions about the validity of scientific statements about global warming being caused by human industry have heated up the Climate Debate. Most climate scientists blame the massive amount of pollution thrown out into the ground, water and air since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution as the cause. They say that the effects of this 'massive total' pollution will be a weakeni ..
