    World Going by ‘Hellish’ 3C of Local climate Heating, UN Warns Sooner than Cop28

    The world is on track for a "hellish" 3C of global heating, the UN has warned before the crucial Cop28 climate summit that begins next week in the United Arab Emirates. From a report: The report found that today's carbon-cutting policies are so inadequate that 3C of heating would be reached this century. Temperature records have already been obliterated in 2023 and intensifying heatwaves, floods and droughts have taken lives…

    Earth is “shaking” due to ongoing climate change

    NEW YORK, BRONX (ORDO News) — Scientists have reported that the Earth‘s seismic activity is steadily increasing, and not only on land. According to the journal Nature Communications, scientists are seeing an increase in storm activity across the planet, accompanied by unusual fluctuations in ocean waves, even at the depths of the ocean floor. Experts define this phenomenon as “global microseism” – a continuous background noise generated by stormy ocean…

    Did the Earth cool before human intervention in the climate?

    (ORDO NEWS) — We are currently witnessing global warming. The average temperature on the planet has already increased by more than 1 degree Celsius compared to the pre-industrial period. And this is not the limit – according to scientists, humanity is unlikely to be able to stop this process at even 1.5 degrees Celsius. But the current global warming is anthropogenic, that is, caused by the activities of mankind. However,…

    If the climate warms by 1.8 degrees or more, the melting of glaciers will accelerate 30 times

    (ORDO NEWS) — An international team of climatologists has concluded that the rate of glacier melt and global sea level rise will accelerate sharply after climate warming of 1.8 degrees Celsius or more as a result of the fact that the melting of the ice masses of Greenland and West Antarctica will become virtually irreversible. “If humanity fails to keep warming at around 1.8 degrees Celsius, then the ice massifs…

    All forest flowers and trees change with the climate, but not everyone keeps up with the changes

    (ORDO NEWS) — An international team of scientists conducted a massive study to find out how climate change shifts the time between the start of flowering forest flowers and the full formation of tree crowns. If the flowers do not have time to bloom in this short period, they will no longer have enough light to ripen the seeds. On different continents, the shift occurs in different ways. In some…

    (ORDO NEWS) — Research in southern Ethiopia has shown how key phases of climate change have affected human evolution, dispersal and innovation. An international team of scientists led by Verena Foerster from the University of Cologne (Germany) compiled a fairly detailed paleoclimatic record of East Africa, the region from which, according to modern ideas, Homo sapiens came out. The authors compared the obtained data with the shifts in human evolution…

    Chinese scientists propose to build wooden houses instead of concrete for the sake of climate

    (ORDO NEWS) — Chinese and German scientists have calculated that replacing concrete and metal with wood during construction will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An article about this was published in Nature Communications. Cement is produced by firing raw materials in clinker kilns. At the same time, a lot of carbon dioxide, toxic gases and other environmentally harmful substances are released into the atmosphere. Characteristically, the volume of these emissions…

    ‘Zombie ice’ threatens sea level rise, climate scientists say

    (ORDO NEWS) — Even if the entire world stopped burning fossil fuels today, the Greenland ice sheet would still lose about 110 quadrillion tons of ice. As climate change continues to wreak havoc around the world, from extreme droughts in China to severe floods in parts of India and Pakistan, another major problem is brewing in an isolated corner of the planet. Greenland is on track to raise global sea…

    Clouds played an important role in the history of climate

    (ORDO NEWS) — Were Earth‘s oceans completely covered by ice during the Cryogenian period, about 700 million years ago, or was there an ice-free belt of open water around the equator where sponges and other forms of life could survive? Using global climate models, a team of researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Vienna has shown that a climate allowing a waterbelt is unlikely and…

    Study provides new way to reconstruct past climate on Mars

    (ORDO NEWS) — A study by a geologist at Monash University has provided new evidence of when high rates of erosion have occurred throughout Mars‘ history. The results of the study, published today in the journal Geology, indicate that Mars’ climate was much more erosive in the past, suggesting that there were steady periods of time when liquid water moved across the planet’s surface. Scientists have long wanted to understand…

    Scientists have determined what provoked the world’s largest climate catastrophe

    (ORDO NEWS) — About 252 million years ago, the world was going through a turbulent period of rapid global warming. To understand its cause, scientists drew attention to one specific event, when a volcanic eruption in what is now Siberia released a huge amount of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. However, there is evidence that the climate was already changing before that. In the hundreds of thousands of years preceding…

    (ORDO NEWS) — Most people have heard of flash floods. On the other hand, “sudden droughts” are not so familiar. Unfortunately, this may change as abnormal, sudden droughts accelerate in the warmer conditions of climate change. A new analysis of flash droughts shows that droughts have come on faster over the past two decades, with an estimated 33-46 percent of flash droughts now occurring in just five days. Compared to…
