Falls in the average tracking speeds of hurricanes and typhoons, attributed to global warming, put more lives at risk Research published in Nature earlier this year showed that the average speed at which tropical storms track has slowed down by 10% since 1949.
It’s the sign of a planet in the throes of change, and those changes don’t look good for the future.Humans are used to the idea of some parts of their homeworld being all but uninhabitable.
The story’s nonsense, but there’s something to work with.”It’s not just Barry who’s working against irrelevance—it’s the community of artists he’s surrounded himself with, all of whom are similarly trying to make something, anything, of their lives.That, essentially, is the gist and genius of the show, which belongs to a new, more morose and deadly serious stripe of comedy.
High up on a melting Greenland glacier, at the end of this summer from climate hell,two young women shout a poem above the roar of the wind. ‘Hoping to rouse more of the world to action’ … Jetnil-Kijiner and Niviana in Greenland with Bill McKibben Photograph: 350.org
Food is a tool to nourish life but also for taking political action and for averting the dangers of climate change and preventing unnecessary harm. By reducing animal agriculture, we also could improve health, stabilize grain prices, enhance food security and prevent unnecessary harm and violence.
The Best Albums of the Summer Were Exercises in ReinventionFrom Nicki Minaj's Queen to Blood Orange's Negro Swan, the strongest projects rattled with self-discovery and redefinition.Republic RecordsSummer is a time of intense polarities, of feverish abandon and earned languor.
Oceanographers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) came across their finding after deploying a team of robot submarines in the Gulf of Oman.Their collected data found a monstrous dead zone the size of the US state of Florida – and the area is unfortunately spreading.Dead zones, or Oxygen Minimum Zones, are areas with extremely low levels of oxygen in bodies of water such as oceans and large lakes.Dr Bastien Queste from UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences said: “Dead zones are areas devoid of oxygen.
The beaches of southwest Florida are once again graveyards for marine life, thanks to a deadly "red tide" algal bloom floating just beneath the surface of the water offshore.
Meaning, your late car payment ain’t got nothing on spending your entire life in an intestine.Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, have found that one nematode worm, Nippostrongylus brasiliensis, appears to boost its odds of survival by dosing its rodent hosts with endocannabinoids, molecules that are known to reduce inflammation.
For now, Wright describes her reading of these risks as “theoretical, hypothetical, and logical,” meaning that though there’s fairly limited research within archaeology, these forecasts square with projections that researchers in other fields have arrived at, after starting to scrutinize the future effects of climate change on, for instance, ocean chemistry, reefs, and other marine life.Storm surges and violent weather pose an immediate threat: Hurricanes tracking right over shipwrecks can splinter them into oblivion, or at least strip protective coverings and expose timbers, coral-covered cannonballs, and other features to battering currents and wind.
