Map Explorer Explore maps of future climate as simulated by individual climate models. IMPORTANT: When viewing and using results from individual climate models, it is imperative that you also take account of the range in the climate projections. If you have not already done so, we encourage you to use the Climate Futures approach to identify two or three models that capture the range of results relevant to your application.

Map of ‘vegetarian friendliness’ (number of vegetarian restaurants) in Europe by country Tip: See my list of the Most Common Mistakes in English. It will teach you how to avoid mistakes with commas, prepositions, irregular verbs, and much more (PDF Version). The original idea of this article was to create a map showing the percentage of population following a vegetarian diet, but it turned out to be impossible to find a reliable source of data for more than a handful of countries. Since there is correlation between supply and demand, I decided to create a map of the supply part instead (which, however, is affected by many other factors than just the percentage of vegetarians, e.g. tourism and overall wealth). The following map is based on the number on entries at HappyCow, the largest directory of vegetarian restaurants in the world, and shows the number of vegetarian restaurants per 1 million inhabitants.
Sydney heatwave: city uses more water in a day than any time in past 14 years Sydney residents have soaked up more water in one day than they have on any other day in more than a decade after enduring sweltering conditions. With temperatures hovering around 35C in the city and 40C in the west, demand for water on Sunday topped the peak of the past 14 years at 2.215bn litres – about 8.8bn glasses of water. It exceeded highest daily usage since 29 January 2003, when there was a demand for 2.273bn litres. The 54.5bn litres soaked up in total this January – an average of 1.76bn litres a day – was also 24% higher than in the same month last year, according to Sydney Water.
Population growth & regional internal migration in your area 2013-2014 Melbourne is expected to overtake Sydney as Australia’s largest city by 2056, as parts of Australia face higher growth rates than others. The average population growth rate across Australia is 1.6 per cent, data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows. However, the populations of some districts are shrinking while others have growth rates more than 10 per cent. The suburb of Truganina, part of Greater Melbourne, saw a 16.8 per cent population growth in 2013-14. The district of Anglesea, 90km away, saw its population decline 3.3 per cent. This map shows regional estimates of population growth for 2013-2014. Pant by numbers: the cities with the most dangerous air – listed Billions of people in cities around the world are exposed to dangerous air, but pollution levels vary widely – and the fast-growing cities of Asia and Africa are the worst affected. We’ve broken down data from the World Health Organization on ultra-fine particles of less than 2.5 microns (PM2.5s) region by region. Paris’s air may have almost twice as many PM2.5s as WHO recommended levels (18 micrograms per cubic metre compared with 10µg/m³) – but Delhi’s air contains 122µg/m³, while Zabol, Iran, is the worst at 217µg/m³. Tetovo in Macedonia – a city of 50,000 near the Kosovo border – has the worst PM2.5 air pollution in Europe, according to the WHO data. Once Turkey is included, that country claims eight of the top 10 spots in the most polluted European cities. The most polluted cities in the US and Canada are dominated by California.

International Development - NGIS This project trained 195 people from 95 organisations to enhance the capacity of Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and Samoa to undertake assessments of inundation exposure to key settlements and infrastructure at risk from sea level rise through the provision of critical baseline data, improved GIS capacity, and implementation of coastal inundation modelling. The software and online spatial tools delivered as part of this project enabled maps to be printed and laminated for presentations to local communities. These flood maps provided an important mechanism for informing communities of their potential risk.
City living, stress and mental health - NHSUK People who live in the country are happier, according to the Daily Mail.
