Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet. Steady Increase in Climate Related Natural Disasters - Climate Change Weather Blog. Steady Increase in Climate Related Natural Disasters November 15, 2013; 3:38 PM The incidence of natural disasters worldwide has steadily increased, especially since the 1970's, according to a report from the New England Journal of Medicine.

Steady Increase in Climate Related Natural Disasters - Climate Change Weather Blog

Then main reason for this increase in the steady uptick of climate-related disasters. Image below courtesy of EM-DAT International Disaster Database, Center for Research on Epidemiology of Disasters, University of Louvain. Since 1990, natural disasters have affected about 217 million people every year. Geophysical disasters include earthquakes, volcanoes, dry rockfalls, landslides and avalanches. Climate-related disasters include hydrological events such as floods, storm surge and coastal flooding, while meteorological events include storms, tropical cyclones, local storms, heat/cold waves, drought and wildfires. As a result, the amount of economic damage due to these natural disasters has seen a steady upturn.

Jeff Masters from Weather Underground drops some science on those who think they can conclude that the planet isn't warming because "it's so cold this winter! " Interestingly, cold isn't the only abnormal weather pattern for North-America right now. There's also historic warm temperatures in Alaska, and the deepest drought in decades across the west...

By Tanner Higgin, Graphite Environmental education for most adults used to mean learning a little bit about recycling and planting some trees on Arbor Day.

Apps That Challenge Kids to Solve Environmental Issues

We didn’t delve into ecology as much as we skimmed the surface. But things have gotten more complex since then, and the topic of climate change has brought environmental education to the forefront. At its best, environmental education gets students grappling with big, cross-disciplinary issues like sustainable design and renewable energy. Students think critically about environmental and ecological systems; they diagnose problems, and speculate about (or maybe even create) solutions. 1. This app provides an overview of environmental issues, particularly pollution, for younger students.

As with other Google Maps, you can click-and-drag the window to scroll or double click to zoom. Potential for Sea Level Rise As global warming progresses, sea level is expected to rise primarily due to the melting of continental ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. During the twentieth century, sea level rose 20 cm. However, even if global temperatures stabilize in 2100, the full magnitude of sea level rise is expected to take far longer to develop. Climate Change, Deforestation, Biomes and Ocean Currents, Plankton, Endangered Species - Earth Web Site. Click for more detail Thermohaline Change Evidence is growing that the thermohaline current may be slowed or stopped by cold fresh water inputs to the Arctic and North Atlantic oceans.

This could occur if global warming is sufficient to cause large scale melting of arctic sea ice and the Greenland ice sheet. Such a change in the current may be gradual (over centuries) or very rapid (over a few years). Either would cause planet wide changes in climate. This effect may be part of what starts and stops the ice ages. "Diatoms (a kind of phytoplankton) are estimated to "scrub" roughly as much CO2 from the atmosphere each year as all the world's rainforests. "Net primary productivity is the mass of plant material produced each year on land and in the oceans by photosynthesis using energy from sunlight.

Biodiversity is the variety of life found at all levels of biological organization, ranging from individuals and populations to species, communities and ecosystems. Weather Watch. Extreme Ice Survey. The World’s First Vertical Forest: An.

I’d like to introduce you to the world’s first Bosco Verticale (Italian for Vertical Forest), which is being built right now in Milan.

According to Christopher Woodward, a writer for the Financial Times, it’s “the most exciting new tower in the world.” This vertical forest will span across two towers that have fabulous balconies designed to house these trees.
