How do we face up to ice loss?

How do we face up to ice loss?

Posted Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:31:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Climate change is about to become the issue that many accept as even more important than wars and finances. We are being physically forced into action, despite the fact that almost nobody lives around the Barents Sea or even the Bering Strait.

SUMMARY: When you look up your surname, the list of ancestors may include many Vikings and Saxons, but the base-metal of many Europeans is the Celt, feared by Rome and remembered for fantastic art and beautiful literature. Check your association with UK or Spanish blood now. You may well be surprised how ancient your ancestors are, according to the locality your more recent forebears inhabited.

Endemic Giant Salamander Threat-from its Neighbour.

When threatened species face both competition and hybridisation from a relative, the best techniques for assessment are needed. The giant salamanders stand apart as unique endemics in NE Asia, but now the Chinese species has begun invading the rivers in which the other member of its genus lives. This could be curtains for Andrias japonicus if the IAS manages to gain a foothold and interbreed.

How can the tiny capacity of a bee brain store memory as capably as that of our own? The 2 are very similar in performance, according to this research, despite the disparity in size.

Dragons and biodiversity seem miles apart. Here seadragons help us to understand just what might be left for us on a severely-depleted planet. Thanks to these researchers for getting to the far end of an old story from 60 years ago and using technology to provide us with the truth about fish phylogeny and our diverse marine life.

We all dream of a perfect world where grass is green and rivers flow through forests surrounding clean cities. Reality is a human concentration on warfare and greed for land. To make up for the sins of the past alone, we have to spend a lot of time and money in disposing of the mistakes. Now for the future of no forest, polluted land, and nothing left alive in the rivers and oceans.
