Scientists are to outline dramatic evidence that global warming threatens the planet in a new and unexpected way – by triggering earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches and volcanic eruptions. Reports by international groups of researchers – to be presented at a London conference next week – will show that…

Fossilised and live coral offer vital information on the effect of climate change on organisms. (Phys.org) —A report from a panel of global scientists has offered the strongest evidence yet that climate change is a direct result of human behaviour. More than 600 scientists worldwide contributed to the…

Who is causing global warming?
The climate crisis of the 21st century has been caused largely by just 90 companies, which between them produced nearly two-thirds of the greenhouse gas emissions generated since the dawning of the industrial age, new research suggests. The analysis, which was welcomed by the former vice-president Al…

Image: NASA Ozone (O3) high in the atmosphere absorbs ultraviolet radiation from the sun, thereby protecting living organisms below from this dangerous radiation. The term ‘ozone hole’ refers to recent depletion of this protective layer over Earth s polar regions. People, plants, and animals living under…

Effect of CO2 on global warming
Effect of CO2 on global warming
Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This carbon overload is caused mainly when we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas or cut down and burn forests. There are many heat-trapping gases (from methane to water vapor), but CO2 puts us at the greatest risk…

Science behind global warming
How do we know carbon dioxide concentrations have increased? The concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in atmospheric samples have been measured continuously since the late 1950s. Since then, carbon dioxide concentrations have increased steadily from about 315 parts per million…
