Climate change could kill world's oldest trees: Study 3.1.2017 DNA: Money
Warming temperatures due to climate change may spell the end for some of the oldest trees on the planet, a new study has warned. Bristlecone pines - including Methusaleh, one of the world's oldest trees have lived in North America's Great Basin for thousands of years. However, warming temperatures due to climate change could cause trouble for the ancient trees by tipping the ecological balance in favour of the conifer's neighbour, the limber pine, scientists said. Both limber and bristlecone pines are adapted to the temperature and moisture of subalpine forests. As the species' favourite temperatures move up mountains due to climate change, logic says the trees should follow them upward. Now a new study has found limber pines are leap-frogging over bristlecones: most of all the juvenile trees above the historic treeline are limber pines. "The (trees) are not just moving in lock step. Species are moving around the landscape in unpredictable ways," said Brian Smithers, an ecologist at the University of ...

India’s energy forecasts are falling short and climate could win 21.12.2016 ET: Power
Another signal that India’s power needs are shifting comes from the expansion of energy-efficient technologies -- especially LED light bulbs, which use a fraction of the electricity that traditional ones do.

Watch: NASA’s 3D simulation of atmospheric carbon dioxide will scare you 17.12.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
Global warming is on the rise and NASA has data to prove it. A 3D representation produced by the space agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center reveals an alarming truth: Carbon dioxide is rising and it is slowly heating up our planet. NASA credits the rise in carbon dioxide emissions to the overwhelming dependence on fossil fuels like petrol and coal. The amount of greenhouse gas generated has been steadily rising ever since the Industrial Revolution began in the 18th century.  “Scientists have tracked the rising concentration of heat-trapping carbon dioxide for decades using ground-based sensors in a few places. A high-resolution visualization of the new combined data product provides an entirely different perspective. The visualization was generated by the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, using data from the agency's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite, built and operated by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, ...

Polar bear numbers to plunge a third as Arctic sea ice melts: Study 8.12.2016 DNA: Mumbai
Polar bear numbers could drop a third by mid-century, according to the first systematic assessment, released today, of how dwindling Arctic sea ice affects the world's largest bear. There is a 70 percent chance that the global polar bear population -- estimated at 26,000 -- will decline by more than 30 percent over the next 35 years, a period corresponding to three generations, the study found. Other assessments have reached similar conclusions, notably a recent review by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which tracks endangered species on its Red List. The IUCN classified the sea-faring polar bear -- aka Ursus maritimus -- as "vulnerable", or at high risk of extinction in the wild. But the new study, published in the Royal Society's Biology Letters, is the most comprehensive to date, combining 35 years of satellite data on Arctic sea ice with all known shifts in 19 distinct polar bears groupings scattered across four ecological zones in the Arctic. "Polar bears depend on sea ...

Polar sea ice the size of India vanishes in record heat 6.12.2016 DNA: India
Sea ice off Antarctica and in the Arctic is at record lows for this time of year, after declining by twice the size of Alaska, in a sign of rising global temperatures, climate scientists say. Against a trend of global warming and a steady retreat of ice at earth's northern tip, ice floating on the Southern Ocean off Antarctica has tended to expand in recent years. But now it is shrinking at both ends of the planet, a development alarming scientists and to which a build-up of man-made greenhouse gases, an El Nino weather event that this year unlocked heat from the Pacific Ocean and freak natural swings may all be contributing. "There are some really crazy things going on," said Mark Serreze, director of the US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado, saying temperatures in parts of the Arctic were 20 degrees Celsius above normal some days in November. Worldwide, this year is on track to be the warmest on record. Combined, the extent of polar sea ice on December 4 was about 3.84 ...

New way to create fuel from water 1.12.2016 DNA: Mumbai
In a breakthrough, scientists have found an economically viable way to create fuel from water by splitting it into oxygen and hydrogen, using an ultrathin catalyst. Just as solar light can generate electricity, the water splitting process could do the same via the generation of clean chemical fuel such as hydrogen, said Huijin Zhao, Director of Griffith University's Centre for Clean Environment and Energy (CCEE) in Australia. While it is already scientifically possible to split water in this way, highly efficient catalysts are the key to moving the system to one that is economically viable, researchers said. "The world is now facing five major issues for humanity - energy, environment, water, food security and public health," Zhao said.  "Global warming is ranked first and it is all resulting from burning fossil fuels because that is where carbon dioxide comes from," he said. "To reduce this and to make the global temperature not rise beyond 2 degrees Celsius you have to find clean, renewable energy and ...
