The second major greenhouse gas is methane, released from agricultural activities, biomass combustion and inefficient waste management. To sum up, salinity is low where precipitation is greater than evaporation, mainly in coastal or equatorial regions. Take the groups to the computer lab to begin looking at the websites listed above. 5. But given the unprecedented talking about carbon limitations and political action, the classic crunch could come next year, when there could be a slight cooling.

Scientists from the Smithsonian Center for Tropical Research document the astounding abundance of diversity in tropical rainforests to discover why so many species coexist that are competing for the same resources. Spencer Weart's The Discovery of Global Warming gives a very detailed account of the history of climate science with a plethora of references - there are many days' worth of in-depth study there for those who want to go beyond the blogosphere! August 5, 2016: Almost 10 million people from across the world tell the United Nations, stopping climate change is NOT our priority!

“Concentrations will probably hover around 401 ppm over the next month as we sit near the annual low point. The major components of nitrogen, oxygen, and argon remain constant over time and space, while trace components like CO2 and water vapor vary considerably over both space and time. Warm water is dragged back across the Pacific Ocean, heating the central Pacific Ocean and the surface waters off the west coast of South America.

When the air pressure is low, the optimum density for bird flight is also low. Tsunami are not rare, with at least 25 tsunami occurring in the last century. What role do the developed nations play a role in increasing CO2 emissions in the next few decades? Brief excursions towards lower values are still possible but it already seems safe to conclude that we won’t be seeing a monthly value below 400 ppm this year—or ever again for the indefinite future,” Ralph Keeling, director of the CO2 program at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, wrote in a blog post.

Volcanoes also add carbon dioxide to the air, but humans are now putting much more carbon dioxide into the air than volcanoes. Aerosols affect climate by scattering sunlight back into space and cooling the surface.

Reading and discussion of primary cutting edge literature on climate science. This unit contains: Atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, Earth surface,. These pretty clouds move, but do not go away. However, in many countries there are now programs to reduce sulphur dioxide emissions from power stations, as these emissions cause acid rain.

This report published by the World Bank presents a global view of major natural disaster risk hotspots, which are areas at relatively high risk of loss from one or more natural hazards. So even if we accept a lower ECS value, it hardly signals the end of global warming or even a pause. The climate of Earth has been in a constant state of change ever since the planet was first formed and it is still changing. Formerly glaciated landscapes reveal how topography evolve in one of the least accessible Earth’s surface environments

But the report also finds an encouraging trend: In recent years, growth in the footprint has lagged far behind population and economic growth.

D.s who have signed a statement encouraging “careful examination of the evidence” for what is vaguely termed “Darwinian theory”; climate change deniers have the so-called Oregon Petition, with more than 31,000 signers endorsing a statement denying that there is any “convincing evidence” that the human release of greenhouse gases will cause “catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” Such petitions convey the misleading impression that science is a popularity contest.
