Ancient Greenland was much warmer than thought 5.6.2018 DNA: Evolutions
Greenland was once much warmer than previously thought, say scientists who have discovered remains of ancient life in lake mud of the region that survived the last ice age. The mud, discovered by researchers at the Northwestern University in the US, has remains of common flies nestled within it, which record two interglacial periods in northwest Greenland. Although researchers have long known these two periods - the early Holocene and Last Interglacial - experienced warming in the Arctic due to changes in the Earth's orbit, the mix of fly species preserved from these times shows that Greenland was even warmer than previously thought.

'Global warming likely to hit poorest regions hardest' 31.5.2018 General News
The poorest regions of the world are will bear the worst brunt of climate change if global average surface temperatures reach the 1.5 or 2 degree Celsius limit set by the Paris agreement, a study has found. The wealthiest areas of the world will experience fewer changes, researchers said. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, compares the difference between climate change impacts for wealthy and poor nations. "The results are a stark example of the inequalities that come with global warming," said Andrew King, from the University of Melbourne in Australia. "The richest countries that produced the most emissions are the least affected by heat when average temperatures climb to just 2 degrees Celsius, while poorer nations bear the brunt of changing local climates and the consequences that come with them," said King. The least affected countries include most temperate nations, with the UK coming out ahead of all others. By contrast, the worst affected are in .

Limiting global warming may prevent millions of dengue cases 29.5.2018 General News
Limiting global warming to 1.5 degree Celsius could prevent around 3.3 million cases of dengue fever ever year in Latin America and the Caribbean alone, a study has found. The study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that limiting warming to the goal of the UN Paris Agreement would also stop dengue spreading to areas where incidence is currently low. A global warming trajectory of 3.7 degree Celsius could lead to an increase of up to 7.5 million additional cases per year by the middle of this century. Dengue fever is a tropical disease caused by a virus that is spread by mosquitoes, with symptoms including fever, headache, muscle and joint pain. It is endemic to over 100 countries, and infects around 390 million people worldwide each year, with an estimated 54 million cases in Latin America and the Caribbean. Since the mosquitoes that carry and transmit the virus thrive in warm and humid conditions, it is more commonly found in areas with ...
