The ongoing rise in greenhouse gas emissions may trigger a rapid, irreversible collapse in an Antarctic ice sheet the size of Mexico, with potentially catastrophic consequences, a study published last week in the journal Nature found.
Extreme temperatures linked to climate change can be expected to cause a significant increase in the number of premature deaths, according to a report released Monday by the Obama administration.
A new report nearly doubles previous predictions for sea level rise if global emissions continue unabated, portending a doomsday scenario for many of the world’s coastal cities.

Sea levels worldwide have risen an average of nearly eight centimeters (three inches) since 1992 because of warming waters and melting ice, a panel of NASA scientists said on Wednesday, Aug 27, according to the Gurdian. In 2013, a United Nations panel predicted sea levels would rise from between 0.3 and 0.9 meters by the end of the century. The new research shows that sea level rise would probably be at the high end of that, said a University of Colorado geophysicist, Steve Nerem.

While there has been a gradual drop in temperatures, this summer Algerians experienced a heatwave over 40 days. Is this normal? It’s unusual if you live in the northern, coastal Algerian cities, where maximum temperatures never drop below 36C; that’s our average body temperature, so it’s all related. However, 40C would be a more ‘normal’ temperature if you live in central Algeria or in the south.
