Scientists have noticed that compared to the 1990s the average temperature on the planet has fallen somewhat, despite the growing amount of carbon emissions into the atmosphere. According to meteorologists, in the period between 1998 and 2012 the temperature increased only by 0.04 degrees Celsius, while in the previous two periods (1970 to 1998), the temperature increased by 0.17% over ten years. There was a slight pause in global warming, but climate scientists believe that it is long.
A new theory to explain the prosperity of the giant reptiles during the Jurassic period, forced scientists to talk about the return of the dinosaurs. According to the researchers, global warming will lead to the emergence of new species and a multiform increase in body size of modern crocodiles, lizards and turtles.
The phenomenon of gigantism among herbivorous lizards, shows us that, in the warmth of their cage sizes increase significantly” – quoted by Daily Mail Patricia Hilliard University of California. The expert notes that gigantism even the example of one generation looks impressive, but if we are talking about tens and hundreds of generations, the body size of the animals can grow up to six times.
In the Great Australian Bight in South Australia is a vast and empty Nullarbor Plain – a real end of the world. It is the world’s largest single piece of limestone, covering an area of 270,000 square kilometers It stretches 1,000 km from east to west. The surface of the plain is so flat that stretches 483 km straight line here Transavstraliyskoy railway. Plain ends abruptly Bund cliffs that form the break length is 200 km, curving around the Great Australian Bight. Continue reading “What is the edge of the earth”
While the last three decades, the sea ice at the North Pole markedly decreased , on the other side of the world with an area increased . According to Richard Bintan of the Meteorological Institute of the Netherlands and his colleagues intensified melting of the Antarctic ice sheet , which is losing mass at a rate of 250 Gt per year, may be the deciding factor of a small but statistically significant increase of sea ice in the area.

Climate of Global warming could significantly alter the planet. However, scientists can not say when it will happen: a few decades or centuries. One thing is for sure – global climate change has already started and can not stop it.
Global climate change lies with the person only in part: it “warms” the atmosphere, building large cities and increasing production. Continue reading “Global warming out of balance”
Planet hanging in space, spinning on its axis and around the sun has been 4.6 billion years. Once the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the temperature was much higher than today. At some stage in the history of the Earth’s atmosphere to create the conditions conducive to the emergence of life. Continue reading “Our planet will live! And we are?”
Perceptibly volcanic which then reflects the sun’s rays, cooling the planet in a few years. But it turns out the opposite is happening, the periods of warming, following the period of glaciations, can lead to more frequent eruptions.
A group of geologists studying ocean bottom mud sample along the perimeter of the Pacific Ring of Fire volcano for signs of ancient eruptions. Bottom layer thicknesses in a million years of accumulation contain layers of ash from the eruption of 91. Continue reading “Global warming wakes volcanoes”
This discovery could have far-reaching consequences for the region, population density, which is similar to those in New York. Continue reading “Himalayas-expected strong earthquake”
The level of the oceans rises much faster than previously predicted, and residents of low-lying coastal areas around the world will soon be faced with the threat of flooding – German scientists warn.

Scientist group believe that in 100 years, many cities will be under water. The main cause of global warming – the accumulation of carbon dioxide (carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere. The heat that radiates Earth is due in part to go into space, but the gases impede this process, creating the “greenhouse effect.”
Scientists believe that after three decades of 75% of the world’s population will live in the coastal area, and in 100 years, many cities will be under water. According to a report prepared by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research, the most vulnerable countries named Bangladesh, Indonesia, India, China, Mexico, Philippines, Vietnam, Madagascar.
