Global predictions: before they destroy us!

Global predictions: before they destroy us!

Temperatures have continued to rise in places and extremes of climate are increasing. Other temperatures have fallen, but we are starting to understand that is just a side-effect.

World Meteorological Day - 23rd March

World Meteorological Day - 23rd March

Posted Sat, 23 Mar 2013 14:40:01 GMT by Michael Evans

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) was created on 23rd March 1950 and in 1951 it was designated as being a specialised agency within the United Nations System. There are now 191 members of the worldwide meteorological community. World Meteorological Day is celebrated each year on the anniversayr of WMO's creation. The theme chosen for 2013 is, “Watching the weather to protect life and property”. This theme highlights the part that WMO plays in the reduction of casualties and damage from weather, climate and water-related hazards.

Temperature, Oxygen and Acidification in the Oceans

Temperature, Oxygen and Acidification in the Oceans

The three hazards associated with climate change that affect the marine environment are no strangers to air and land either. As temperature has caused ice to melt and currents to change, the oceans have increased in temperature more than the land.

We have no idea how long the Arctic ice will continue to decrease, as it did this year to a record low. Most important perhaps, we need to know the biological response to such extremes and the resultant environmental change.

We thought they were immune to climate change, because they appear to be so resilient but baby elephants suffer from small increases in temperature.
