HFCs to be reduced?

HFCs to be reduced?

Posted Mon, 10 Jun 2013 10:41:19 GMT by Paul Robinson

When the two Presidents meet, we expect them to produce something useful. This could be a possible reduction in some of the most dangerous emissions we make. It's likely that storms and droughts have spoken louder than science for them to make this decision.

Worldwide, the fire situation is blazing. More fires, hotter temperatures, and a long season make the situation almost impossible to handle. Here's the US situation.

Certain academics claim that we may not have as severe a rise in temperature as is generally believed. On the other hand, they admit we have no idea what additional factors might be adding to global warming.

Ice-free Arctic dangers of a 'cold war'

Ice-free Arctic dangers of a 'cold war'

It's science against politics against climate effects in a 3-way struggle this week. We all know the winner will be climate, unless some pretty good technology can come to our aid.

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.

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.

As IUCN publish the first of their expert verdicts in various reefs, another nail in the coffin of corals looks likely as the formal 2°C global warming limit is being broken.
