Earth likely to warm more than two degrees by 2100, claim experts 2.8.2017 DNA: Evolutions
World temperatures are likely to rise by more than 2 degrees Celsius this century, surpassing a "tipping point" that a global climate deal aims to avert, scientists said. A study published in the journal Nature Climate Change shows a 90 percent chance that temperatures will increase this century by 2 to 4.9 degrees Celsius.

Satellite snafu masked true sea-level rise 24.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The numbers didn't add up. Even as Earth grew warmer and glaciers and ice sheets thawed, decades of satellite data seemed to show that the rate of sea level rise was holding steady — or even declining. Now, after puzzling over this discrepancy for years, scientists have identified its source: a problem with the calibration of a sensor on the first of several satellites launched to measure the height of the sea surface using radar. Adjusting the data to remove that error suggests that sea levels are indeed rising at faster rates each year. "The rate of sea level rise is increasing, and that increase is basically what we expected," says Steven Nerem, a remote-sensing expert at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA who is leading the reanalysis. Steven presented the as-yet-unpublished analysis recently at a conference sponsored by the World Climate Research Programme and the International Oceanographic Commission, among others. Steven's team calculated that the rate of sea level rise increased from ...
