New findings published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) by Desert Research Institute (DRI) Professor Joseph R. McConnell, Ph.D., and colleagues document a 192-year series of volcanic eruptions in Antarctica that coincided with accelerated deglaciation about 17,700 years ago.

Climate-change : 91 new volcanoes beneath Antarctica's ice newsreporter.in

Climatechange  91 new volcanoes beneath Antarcticas ice

University of Edinburgh researchers on Monday announced the discovery of 91 previously unknown volcanoes under west Antarctica. They do not sound nearly as alarmed as, say, Quartz, which called the possibilities terrifying.


“By themselves the volcanoes wouldn't be likely to cause the entire ice sheet to melt,” said lead researcher Max Van Wyk de Vries, whose team published the study in the Geological Society in late May. But if the glacier is already melting because of global warming, he said, “if we start reducing significant quantities of ice … you can more or less say that it triggers an eruption.”

Atmospheric CO2 Levels Break Critical Point, Warns of Catastrophic Damages to the Earth newsreporter.in

Atmospheric CO2 Levels Break Critical Point Warns of Catastrophic Damages to the Earth

Scientists have announced that Carbon dioxide levels in the Earth's atmosphere have hit the highest point in human history. The Co2 levels are  measured at the top of the Mauna Loa observatory, which shows that the levels have broken the 400 parts-per-million (ppm) boundary for the first time. That means for every million molecules in the atmosphere, 400 of them are carbon dioxide. They say it's highly unlikely that levels will go back at this point in our lifetime. The impact is a reminder of the growing threat from climate change.

The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has predicted that once we go over the 450 ppm threshold, the results could be catastrophic. It would contribute to warming the planet by two degrees and cause unpredicted shifts in weather patterns on Earth. Current predictions are that if humans don't cut emissions by 40-70 percent, we'll break the 450 ppm mark in about twenty years.

Earth had 11th straight record warm month in March

Washington, April 20 : March was the 11th consecutive month a monthly global temperature record was broken, the longest such streak since record-keeping began in 1880, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has said.

"At the risk of sounding like a broken record, March set another heat record for the globe," Xinhua quoted the NOAA as saying in a statement on Tuesday.
