We all take the blame here. Sure big companies filles our skies with dangerous chemicals, but we buy the end result. In our day to day life now we still don’t help, as a spieces we distroyed our World together and did it 100 years. Should we actually be at fault. Many think our Earth can handle all we do to her while others say we all did it. How can you help our environment? http://www.wikihow.com/Help-Save-the-Environment < is a start

As you see, we are all to blame

The data is in, and it’s official: 2014 was the hottest year in recorded history.

NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) made the joint announcement Friday morning, relying on two separate analyses of the data to arrive at this startling new extreme of the long-term rise in global temperatures.

Despite a relatively cool year in the eastern U.S. — anomalous to pretty much everywhere else — global temperatures as a whole were 1.26 degrees Fahrenheit over the 20th century average, the scientists said. Particularly significant is the fact that they got that high without a boost from an El Niño, the weather pattern that helped elevate the previous warmest-ever years to their record status.

And make no mistake: this was part of a long-term trend. Nine of the ten hottest years, with 1998 as an exception, have occurred in the 21st century. If you were born after 1976, to put it in even starker terms, you have no idea what a cooler-than-average year even feels like.

Here, via NOAA, is what Earth’s surface temperature looked like from January through December of 2014:

“The fact that NOAA rated 2014 as the warmest year on record should put to rest the bogus idea often espoused by climate change deniers that ‘global warming stopped in 1998,’” Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at Weather Underground, and Bob Henson, author “The Thinking Person’s Guide to Climate Change,” told the Washington Post. ”Based on the evidence, more than 97 percent of climate scientists have concluded that humans are primarily responsible for the warming of the planet to the record levels observed in 2014.”

This NASA video, which maps five-year global temperature averages from 1880, when record-keeping began, to the end of 2014, shows what that ongoing warming looks like:

The Giant Methane Monster That Can Wipe Out the Human Race


B5vULZ0IgAEkHVo

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews Via links below. This is a real danger, happened before, will again, Methane would case an explosion 10,000 times greater than all our Worlds Nuclear weapon stockpiled together at once. There are so many things that could cause an E.L.E. it is untrue. Yellowstone Park erupting, Meteor’s crashing to Earth, many natural causes, this one is as bad as any, links and video below as always. Merhane trapped in North/South poles are becoming a problem

There’s something lurking deep under the frozen Arctic Ocean, and if it gets released, it could spell disaster for our planet. That something is methane. Methane is one of the strongest of the natural greenhouse gases, about 80 times more potent than CO2, and while it may not get as much attention as its cousin CO2, it certainly can do as much, if not more, damage to our planet. That’s because methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, and there are trillions of tons of it embedded in a kind of ice slurry called methane hydrate or methane clathrate crystals in the Arctic and in the seas around the continental shelves all around the world.

If enough of this methane is released quickly enough, it won’t just produce the same old global warming.

It could produce an extinction of species on a wide scale, an extinction that could even include the human race.

If there is a “ticking time bomb” on our planet that could lead to a global warming so rapid and sudden that we would have no way of dealing with it, it’s methane.

Right now, estimates suggest that there’s over 1,000 gigatons – that’s a thousand billion tons – of carbon in methane form trapped just under the Arctic ice. And if stays trapped under the ice, we might have a chance.

But, thanks to the global warming that’s already occurring, Arctic sea ice is melting at unprecedented rates.

In fact,  as Gaius Publius points out over at America Blog, just about every reputable projection on the loss of Arctic sea ice has been wrong in a very, very bad way.

The lack of sea ice cover in the Arctic that we’re seeing today wasn’t supposed to happen for 20+ more years according to 13 of the most accurate models. As all that sea ice melts, the Arctic ice which once reflected sunlight and prevented global warming, becomes a very blue ocean that absorbs heat and causes even more melting. And this all means that more and more methane is being released into the atmosphere much faster than expected, speeding up the process of global warming and climate change.

It’s all one big and vicious cycle, called a “positive feedback loop,” something that can spiral out of balance and control very quickly. But here’s where it gets really scary. Researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks International Arctic Research Center have found that Arctic methane is leaking out from the ocean floor nearly twice as fast as was previously thought.

The researchers found that the East Siberian Arctic Shelf is releasing at least 17 million tons of methane into the atmosphere each year. Natalia Shakhova, one of the lead researchers on the study, said methane releases from the Arctic seafloor are, “now on par with the methane being released from the arctic tundra, which is considered to be one of the major sources of methane in the Northern Hemisphere.” To put this in perspective, just seven years ago, estimates suggested that only 500,000 tons of methane were being released into Earth’s atmosphere each year. Now we’re measuring 17 million tons of it. Just in the Arctic.

Now, we can’t directly stop Arctic sea ice from melting and releasing methane into the atmosphere, but we can help stop what’s contributing to that melting in the first place: fossil fuel extraction. Every day, the fossil fuel industry extracts more and more fossil fuels from the ground, releasing tons and tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Giant hole appear’s in Russian town called ‘End of the World’


The seemingly bottomless crater has been discovered in Siberia and a team of scientists will today arrive at the hole to investigate what caused it. Footage of the crater has been viewed almost 1.5million times on YouTube and the internet has been abuzz with rumours about what made the giant hole. Conspiracy theorists have suggested it was caused by a UFO while some have said is the mark left by a meteor that hit Earth. The most plausible theory is that global warming caused an explosion in the gas rich area where the unexplained crater in Northern Russia appeared.

The giant hole was discovered in Yamal, which literally means the “end of the world”. The expedition to the crater today will see experts take samples of soil, air and water from the scene. Speaking to The Siberian Times a government official said it was too early to say what caused the hole but did rule out it being a meteorite. The official said: “We can definitely say that it is not a meteorite. No details yet.” A report by Russian news channel Zvezda TV said the dark colour of the crater indicates “some temperature processes”. While other experts said the darkening around the inner rim suggests that its formation was accompanied by severe burning scorching the edges.
