Проект: Causes and consequences of abnormal heat in summer 2010

Due to global warming glaciers are melting very quickly, however, to understand the magnitude of ice loss and the impact of meltwater to the world ocean still was very difficult. To assess all of this, the researchers combined earth observation satellite data and found that from 1961 to 2016, the glaciers in total lost 9 trillion tons of ice, and it was a huge strain on the environment. Moreover, every year the melting is accelerating, so people should take measures to eliminate the consequences.

Проект: New in Science

In 2018, scientists reported harsh news: despite concerns about global warming due to coal it produced 38% of world's electricity in 2017 — that is, exactly the same as when the first alarming warnings about the climate 20 years ago. Worse, greenhouse gas emissions increased by 2.7% last year — the largest increase in seven years. This stagnation has led to the fact that even politicians and environmentalists began to think about the fact that we need more nuclear energy.

On Earth may disappear stratocumulus clouds
Проект: Causes and nature of the current crisis

Increasing the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to the equivalent of 1300 parts CO2per million or more is an unlikely but possible scenario in the XXII century — can lead to destabilization and destruction of stratocumulus clouds over the ocean. This, in turn, can cause even greater warming of the ocean by about eight degrees Celsius, according to the study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience. About it writes N+1.
