Heat kills more when it is humid.

If you are living in a part of the world that suffers from summer heat, drought may be just one of the many dangers you are facing. The temperature at which your health becomes endangered is possibly much lower than you thought (that is, it is much lower than the human death point: normally 43oC.)

We have covered the methane from cows and biodegradable materials, but the methane from our past could even have had an effect on the demise of the dinosaurs. Could it finally create an even greater global warming effect?

Will global warming bring more butterflies to northern Europe; can more species now live in the Arctic and Antarctic. We have to allow for changing habitat and even habitat preferences, if we are going to face the true character of global warming, drying environments or melting ice.

Use biodiversity to combat climate change!

The influences of ecology are subtle. So far, few have realised that biodiversity, as noted in South Korea, is key to climate change in many situations. Maintaining our ecosystems should be key in these changing times, but our climate changes continue because we have not resolved the pollution or the degradation issues that we have caused. New ideas and new solutions are essential to combating our climate problems, as Norway (and many others) state categorically.

Our climate change is related to deep ocean currents and glaciations

Our climate change is related to deep ocean currents and glaciations

Posted Mon, 27 Oct 2014 02:00:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The late Pliocene has a lot in common with our projected temperature rise above two degrees Celsius. Carbon dioxide levels were high then too, so there is comparability which could help us in our quest to get ourselves out of the polluted mess we find ourselves in. The answer is deep down in ocean sediments and tied to glaciation and sea ice !

How well are we doing at restraining the natural forces that threaten us following the effects of anthropogenic global warming? The answer no politician wants is we're not adapting to the blindingly obvious. Cool it, the planet that is. Otherwise we'll emit so much carbon dioxide and methane that the weather will provide the punishment we deserve.

How can we get politics to react to long-term problems, for which the politicians may not even be alive to fully appreciate? The Pacific Islands have an answer, as they are suffering before the great industrial and financial centres start to crumble under flood and tempest!

Sea ice helps carbon absorption

When the sea ice melts, our main concern has been sea-level and loss of habitat as our planet warms. Now we are also losing a valuable carbon dioxide sink, too, according to the latest and most detailed investigation yet.

We can already detect ways in which small creatures are surviving against the odds. The humans and other larger species on islands are next in line to suffer from climate change. Can we help them or do anything at all to mitigate global warming. There is an answer, but do all of our politicians know it?

Soil carbon is lost with global warming

The world’s soils have been tested, in a thermal gradient from the Arctic through to the tropical rainforest. Despite claims to the contrary, the loss of carbon as global warming increases is going to increase markedly. We have to prepare ourselves to investigate how soils can be somehow prevented from contributing so much of the greenhouse gases that we have to reduce.

There aren't many large forest animals in Europe, but the lack of forest is the main reason for that. Is it possible that more forest losses will take place because of the great storms cause d by climate change, the wildfires caused by global warming or the increased infection of many species by fungi?

Is it crazy to expect tiny pockets of natural communities to hold evidence of past climate change? The evidence is building that they do indeed have genomes full of information on their ancestry.

In the Indian Ocean and the Pacific there are the volcanic islands of the Tahitian and Hawaiian archipelagos. Many other island nations based on coral atolls now live almost beneath the waves as our carbon emissions literally force global warming to drown them.
