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.
Temperatures are forecast to peak on Christmas Eve around the North Pole - at near-freezing. ..
Atmospheric CO2 Levels Break Critical Point, Warns of Catastrophic Damages to the Earth newsreporter.in
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.
Latest monthly figures add to string of recent temperature records and all but assure 2016 will be hottest year on record
At a time when global warming is threatening a rise in sea levels across the world, Silicon Valley giants Facebook, Google and Cisco may be more concerned as their campuses are now at the risk of being flooded.

Why is it so hot ???
In last 10 years over 10 crore trees were cut for widening roads and highways.
But not more than a lakh trees has been planted by govt. or public.
How to make India cool ???
Please do not wait for government to plant trees.
Sowing seeds or planting trees does not cost much.
Just collect seeds of Shatavari, Bel, Peeple, Tulsi, mango, Lemon, Jamun, Neem, Custard Apple, Jack fruit, etc.
Then dig two-three inch hole on open spaces, roadside, footpaths, highways, gardens and also in your society or bungalow.
Bury these seeds in each hole with soil and then water them every two days in summer.
In rainy season no need to water them.
After 15 to 30 days small plants will be born.
Please nurture them and ensure they grow big.
Let us make this a National movement and plant 10 crore trees all over India.
We should stop temperature from crossing 50 degrees.....
Please plant maximum trees and forward this message to everyone. Lets distribute saplings as return gifts during functions, birthdays etc.
1 plant 1 whtsapp guy..we will easily reach 10 cr plant. Please forward to all group
