Increasing water temperatures might put life of baby lobsters in danger

Increasing water temperatures might put life of baby lobsters in danger

If the ocean waters keep on becoming warmer day by day then the survival of baby lobsters might not possible for long. Maine scientists have come up with this finding in their latest study. Maine is very closely associated with lobster.

University of Vermont researcher’s data could prove critical to rusty patched bumble bee’s recovery

University of Vermont researcher’s data could prove critical to rusty patched bumble bee’s recovery

By the 1990s, one of the most prevalent bees apparently got removed from the state, but the federal government has received some data from a University of Vermont researcher that may prove significant for the recovery of the bee.

Increased pace of Greenland’s ice melting, new model developed to recreate ice loss history

Increased pace of Greenland’s ice melting, new model developed to recreate ice loss history

It is not surprising to know that global warming is dangerously affecting our planet. Recently, scientists used the global positioning system (GPS) to determine the exact loss of ice on Greenland. The results alarmed the scientists as the previously known figures were 20 billion tons less than the current figures.

Satellite to detect human-induced earthquakes

Satellite to detect human-induced earthquakes

Scientists confirmed that the human activities are the reason behind Texas earthquakes in 2012. Oil and gas producing industries in Texas inject waste waters into deep rocks which make the surface bulge a little and ultimately results in earthquake.

Arctic sea ice reaches its second lowest level

Arctic sea ice reaches its second lowest level

The Arctic shrank to its annual summertime ice minimum on September 10th, and to its second lowest level since scientists began monitoring it by satellite. Scientists attribute it to be another ominous sign of global warming.

Lake in Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains could explain California’s drought

Lake in Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains could explain California’s drought

A mountain lake in California may provide answers surrounding the current five year drought as well as the other major droughts in the history of the state.

Glen MacDonald, a climate change researcher and professor at the University of California, Los Angeles led a study in which he has analyzed the relationship between prolonged drought, surface sea temperatures, and the previous periods indicating climate warming.
