Rising temperatures. Upsetting a delicate balance?

A team of British scientists contends that, within 200 years, Earth's temperatures may become hot enough to kill off half of all existing plant and animal species. From: Nick Wadhams for National Geographic News. The researchers from the Universities of York and Leeds in Britain base that dire possibility on a new analysis of the 520-million-year-old fossil record, which links past mass extinctions with cycles of high temperatures. "We could be in the temperature zone in which mass extinctions have occurred by the end of this century, or more likely in the next century," said Peter Mayhew... Read more [...]

Oceans Becoming Acidic Ten Times Faster than Thought Before.

The world's oceans are turning acidic due to the buildup of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, and scientists say the effects on marine life will be catastrophic.

“Increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may make Earth's oceans more acidic faster than previously thought—unbalancing ecosystems in the process. New study says: Helen Scales for National Geographic News” For tens of millions of years, Earth's oceans have maintained a relatively stable acidity level. It's within this steady environment that the rich and varied web of life in today's seas has arisen and flourished. But research shows that this ancient balance is being undone by a recent and rapid drop in surface pH that could have devastating global consequences. Read more [...]

The Industrial Revolution

Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution came at a great cost to our planet. We are now beginning to see nature with new and open eyes. At the start of the 3rd millennium we stand on the brink of a new revolution, one where Nature and Technology stand Hand in Hand. All the new Sciences and new Technologies looks to nature for inspiration and are finding answers to our modern problems in totally new and unexpected ways. Read more [...]
