Earth Might Be Experiencing 7th Mass Extinction, Not 6th

Earth is currently in the midst of a mass extinction, losing thousands of species each year. New research suggests environmental changes caused the first such event in history, which occurred …

Rapid Fluctuations in Oxygen Levels Coincided With Earth’s First Mass Extinction

Rapid changes in marine oxygen levels may have played a significant role in driving Earth’s first mass extinction, according to a new …

Plants Use Their Epigenetic Memories to Adapt to Climate Change

Animals can adapt quickly to survive adverse environmental conditions. Evidence is mounting to show that plants can, too. An article details how plants are rapidly adapting to the adverse effects of …

Salt More Important Than Cold Polar Temps in Sea Ice Formation

When polar seas freeze and ice forms, it is not only due to cold air chilling the surface of the water. Even more important is that warm water is prevented from rising to the surface from the depths …

Source link Recent research has indicated that climate change is proceeding at a faster rate than first thought. The news is alarming and has been confirmed by scientists who have been measuring the Earth’s temperatures and found that it has risen more than half a degree Celsius in the past two decades.

The research was published in the journal ScienceDaily, which is one of the most respected scientific publications. It contained a detailed report on how the Earth’s temperatures have risen in the past two decades and that the trend is accelerating.

The report cited various factors for the change in climate, including: the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and high levels of air pollutants. The effects of these are causing the planet to heat up at a faster rate, which in turn is having a serious impact on the planet and its inhabitants.

The report also highlighted the fact that this change in the climate could have far-reaching consequences, including increased sea levels, droughts and extreme weather events like floods and hurricanes.

These findings come at a time when countries and governing bodies around the world are trying to address the growing global climate crisis. In recent years, the United Nations has led a series of meetings aimed at finding solutions to the problem. The world is now more aware than ever before of the urgent need to reduce emissions and put into place measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

The news from ScienceDaily should be taken very seriously as it confirms what researchers have been saying for decades; that climate change is happening and that it is rapidly accelerating. It is time now for governments and world leaders to take sure and stunning action to stop this climate emergency before it is too late.
