It’s been a seven-day seesaw that has seen Fox News host Tucker Carlson complain of bullying, actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin indicted in a college bribery scandal, North Korea threaten to suspend talks with the US, climate change officially claim the Arctic, a terrible mass shooting in New Zealand, Paul Manafort getting an additional 43 months and then charged with 16 more crimes, Congress voting unanimously to release the Mueller report publicly only for Lindsey Graham to singlehandedly shut it down in the Senate and, of course, yet another Democratic candidate for President of the United States announce themselves.Not Everything Is an Emergency, According to the SenateWhat Happened: In a surprising twist, Republican senators decide not to toe the party line when it comes to the president declaring that his whims constitute a national emergency whenever he says so.You may also remember that Congress then voted to block the declaration, pushing the whole thing to the Republican-controlled Senate to vote on.This week, that vote finally came up in the Senate, and if the Trump administration was hoping that it would have an easy time of making sure that it went away, it was in for a rude awakening.With Democrats in the Senate minority, the bill would need some Republican support to pass; what no one had seemed to seriously consider was just how many Republicans would cross the aisle to vote against their president.
Greta Thunberg warn of an existential crisis.During Friday attended by people in more than 2,000 locations around the world in klimatdemonstrationer.Only in Sweden was conducted more than a hundred different demonstrations for the climate, from Abisko in the north to Trelleborg in the south.Then formed all together human snowflakes, as a symbol of the importance of arctic snow and ice, reports the SVT News, Norrbotten, sweden.– It is terrible that we need to do this, at the same time, it is very cool that we are here, " said Signe Brümmer, a student at the upper secondary school Spyken in Lund, sweden.She and her friends Julia Andersson, Anja Nikolic and Channa Törnlund see Greta Thunberg as an icon.
Even in a dream-come-true scenario where we manage to stop all the world’s carbon emissions overnight, the Arctic would inevitably get hotter and hotter.The report, released at the UN Environment conference in Kenya on Wednesday, says that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the planetary average, and models show that it’s on track to become ice-free during the summer as soon as 2030.The Arctic contains much of the world’s permafrost, which holds what the report calls a “sleeping giant” made of greenhouse gases.Estimates vary, but the report says 1.5 trillion tons of carbon dioxide lurk beneath the Earth’s permafrost.That’s more than 40 times as much CO2 as humans released into the atmosphere last year, and double the amount of the gas in the atmosphere today.But researchers expect Arctic permafrost to shrink 45 percent compared to today.
Even if carbon pollution magically stopped tomorrow, the region’s winters would still warm an astonishing 5 degrees Celsius by century’s end.Meeting the Paris Agreement pledges—which do not get us to the two degree warming goal—would lead to that level of warming by midcentury and up to 9 degrees Celsius by 2100, along the way unravelling one of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet and displacing people who have done very little to cause the disruption.The report was released on Tuesday at a meeting of the United Nations Environment Program.The litany of changes that have already occurred is unsettling, but the real shock is in what could come next.The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, which translates to dramatic change.Sea ice extent, which has shrunk about 40 per cent since regular satellite monitoring began in 1979, could reach zero percent in summer as early as the 2030s.
Narwhals - enigmatic arctic whales known for their sword-like tusk - spend over half their time diving to find food but are also able to last up to three days without a meal, according to a study by Manh Cuong Ngô and colleagues from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, published in PLOS Computational Biology.The researchers analyzed 83 days of continuous tagging data from a single male Narwhal (Monodon monoceros) in the arctic waters east of Greenland.They also recorded sudden drops in the whale's stomach temperature, which indicate that the whale has fed on cold arctic prey, for the first 7 days.They found that swimming could be divided into three types - near surface swimming down to 50m, shallow foraging dives to between 50 m and 350m, and deeper dives for prey at depths between 350m and 900m.Such long-term records are hard to obtain because tracking devices often detach after just a few days or weeks.Narwhals are thought to be impacted by reductions in sea-ice caused by warming waters, competition with fisheries, and disturbance by shipping vessels.
Whether or not the annual Polar Bear Pitching in Oulu, Finland is the world’s coolest startup contest, it’s certainly the coldest.“We have licenses and…Jesus Christ it’s cold,” said Akseli Jylhä-Ollila, CEO and founder of Oulu-based Rat Crew Studios, as he stood chest-deep in the bracing water in front of hundreds of spectators bundled in arctic outerwear as protection against the -10 degrees Celsius temperature.The idea started six years ago with Mia Kemppaala, She was working in Oulu University’s startup hub Business Kitchen.The city that bills itself as the Capital of Northern Scandanavia has a population of about 400,000.And at the time, nobody was sure if its economy would withstand the blow.“But when it’s difficult times in Finland, people really come together.”
Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), in consortium with LUT University and Central Research Institute of Structural Materials "PROMETEY" develop energy-efficient installations based on the use of wind power to supply consumers in the Arctic."Our program area is an emerging cluster for Arctic technology development, which utilizes extensive Russian and Finnish experience and have high scientific competence and technical knowledge.To remain competitive in the field of Arctic engineering, strong cross-border cooperation is needed and institutional frameworks should be established.The project will assess the usability of new high-strength materials and advanced joining methods for application in various Arctic structures," - said Associate professor Paul Kah, the EFREA project manager.The delivery of the organic energy resources to these areas is very expensive.In addition, the emissions of fuel combustion products, as well as storage of the spent fuel barrels cause significant environmental damage to the Arctic nature," said professor Viktor Elistratov, director of the Scientific and Educational Center "Renewable Energy Sources and Installations based on them" SPbPU.
Last year, we got our first glimpse of the production-spec Aston Martin DBX as it underwent testing on a Welsh rally stage.Now, we've got some shots of it in the snow, and it looks pretty gnarly.Aston Martin this week put out a few more pictures teasing its upcoming DBX SUV, the first sport-ute from Gaydon.Tackling the white stuff at the Flurheden Proving Ground, just outside the Arctic Circle in Sweden, this is the time for Aston to test the SUV's winter prowess ahead of its late-2019 reveal.The pictures don't tell us anything new, though.We already knew from the prior set of teasers that, unlike the initial DBX concept, the production DBX will be a proper SUV and not just a lifted hatchback.
So this article will guide you with the steps as well as the precautions that will better the efficiency of your panels.As solar panels use renewable energy it is supposed to be maintenance free. Solar Panel Maintenance Adelaide are an effective solution to generate electricity via renewable resources. Well, this arctic helps you to know about it. Also, you must not use alcohol or ammonia to clean the surface as this will damage it. Do not ever think to use a paper towel as this will also cause scratching.For cleaning it with softer, you should use diluted bleach, but you should use it with proper concentration. Overuse of it might discolour the aluminium frames.For water leakage, you should look over the waterproof seams for signs.
Unfortunately, with global warming affecting the Arctic region, there could be a chance for a similar disaster.Kwek Tze (KT) Tan, Ph.D., assistant professor of mechanical engineering in UA's College of Engineering, recently received a $150,000 grant from the Office of Naval Research to investigate the impact and behavior of specific materials used in the construction of military naval vessels in extreme low temperature Arctic conditions.According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, global warming has reduced the Arctic ice region by 50 percent in the last 30 years.As more ships sail through these freezing waters, there will likely be more impacts with iceburgs.The Arctic has a very harsh climatic condition (average temperature about negative 22 degrees Fahrenheit and lowest temperature about negative 94 degrees Fahrenheit).Materials used to build these vessels must be designed to withstand this extreme low temperature to transport people and goods safely through these harsh conditions.
When we go shopping for a tent for use on camping trips, we typically look for ones that are spacious enough to be comfortable, light enough to transport easily, and built to provide good protection from the elements.The new Universe tent from Tentsile extends its versatility far beyond that, however, giving campers the ability to not just sleep comfortable on the ground, but hang from the trees like a hammock and float on water, too.Billed as a “the three-element” tent, the Universe is large enough to sleep five adults comfortably and offer a six-foot ceiling, allowing many people to comfortably stand up inside.It reportedly provides 300 square feet of floor space and includes three large vestibule areas for stashing gear and supplies as well.As you would expect, the tent ships with a waterproof and UV-resistant rainfly and it features mesh netting to help keep the bugs at bay.While all of those features are nice, what sets the Universe apart from other family tents is the versatility of the terrain — or the complete lack of it — that it can be used on.
Israel’s privately built Beresheet lunar lander is currently en route to the Moon—and tucked away on it is a small disk that’s crammed with 30 million pages of documents offering a primer on human knowledge.And nuclear annihilation still looms in the background as an ever-present reminder that Earth might not be the secure location to store all of the records of human knowledge and progress.On Thursday, the first disc in the Lunar Library initiative, placed on the Beresheet lander, was launched by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and could reach the Moon as soon as April 11.According to the AMF, the first four layers of the 120-millimetre disc contain tiny analog etchings that can be seen with a low-powered microscope.The first layer can be viewed at 100x magnification and the next three layers contains etchings that are 10 times smaller.It contains a guide to the linguistics of more than 1,000 human languages and the foundation has a helpful interactive demonstration of what it’s like to zoom in on the disc’s surface.
I don’t recall the exact date or even the exact mountain I was on (hell, maybe it was a dream), but I remember looking down the slope of untracked powder and wondering how long it would be there.Early on in journalist David Wallace Wells’ highly-anticipated new book on climate change, The Uninhabitable Earth, he talks about his transformation into a Climate Person.After noting “I am not an environmentalist, and don’t even think of myself as a nature person,” he points to a file he keeps:“A few years ago, I began collecting stories of climate change, many of them terrifying, gripping, uncanny narratives, with even the most small-scale stories playing like fables: a group of Arctic scientists trapped when melting ice isolated their research centre, on an island populated also by a group of polar bears; a Russian boy killed by anthrax released from a thawing reindeer carcass, which had been trapped in permafrost for many decades.”Wallace-Wells and I took slightly different routes to the same endpoint, but it’s clear there are human values that shifted our respective focuses.Based on the worst case climate scenarios, the article laid out in devastating detail just how fucked humanity is if we let carbon pollution continue to pile up in the atmosphere.
”Inside the lining on the Frænkels jacket from the white island are great intorkade dark spots,” writes Uusma, the author of the book ”the Expedition – my love story” about the failed expedition to the Arctic, via Instagram.Then the three explorers wrecked on white island for over 120 years ago, their fate remained a mystery.If the spots in the fabric turns out to be blood, it might be a piece of the puzzle as to why they died.the Samples have now been sent to a laboratory in Rotterdam to be further investigated.Uusmas research is done in cooperation with the Grenna museum.
But a global review of insect research has found another casualty: 40% of insect species are declining and a third are endangered.It confirms what many have been suspecting: in Australia and around the world, arthropods – which include insects, spiders, centipedes and the like — appear to be in trouble.If that study’s findings are broadly valid – something still far from certain – it has chilling implications for global biodiversity.Four decades later, another research team returned to the island and repeated the study using identical methods and the same locations.The team found that a bevy of arthropod-eating lizards, birds and frogs had fallen sharply in abundance as well.Arthropods pollinate some of our most important food crops and thousands of wild plant species, disperse seeds, recycle nutrients and form key links in food chains that sustain entire webs of life.

He pointed to a frozen bay across from the town of Luleå in northern Sweden, a stone’s throw from the Arctic Circle.I’m here to drive a new car, not to go ice-skating or live a day in the life of a snow plow driver.Less than five minutes later I stood on about a yard of rock-solid ice in front of a row of neatly-parked Volvo V60 Cross Country station wagons.The Cross Country’s full list of standard and optional equipment won’t be published until closer to its on-sale date, which will be during the first quarter of 2019, and deliveries will begin the following July.It was based on the standard V70, but it gained additional ground clearance, all-wheel drive, plus an array of Cross Country-specific trim pieces.The V60 Cross Country, like all of its predecessors and its modern-day siblings, follows the same recipe.
This is no good news, but a new paper points out an unexpected benefit as a result of all this lost ice: sand.The world is in need of sand—in part, to prepare for rising sea levels and strengthen coasts—and Greenland could play a major role in supplying it.After popping information on ice sheet melt into models, the team realised the growth of sandy river deltas was directly related to the loss of ice.“We saw this and felt we need to share this knowledge with policymakers,” said lead author Mette Bendixen, a researcher at the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research.This has resulted in sand building up on the island’s coasts because as the ice melts, it flows through rivers and carries sediments toward the sea.The sand delivered to Greenland’s coasts each year has a market value equivalent to more than half of the government’s gross domestic product, which was about £1.73 billion in 2015, per this press release.

Russian authorities have declared a state of emergency in the remote, sparsely populated Novaya Zemlya islands in the Arctic Ocean, the BBC reported this weekend, after “dozens” of polar bears whose food sources are limited due to climate change started rooting through homes and other buildings near the settlement of Belushya Guba looking for something to eat.According to the BBC, officials said that the bears no longer fear either police patrols or the signals used to keep them away from humans, and that they have even crossed onto the grounds of the local air defence garrison.Though the animals are considered endangered by Russia (the IUCN Red List classifies them as “vulnerable,” with a decreasing population), officials said that if non-lethal means fail to drive the bears away, they may be forced to cull the animals, the BBC added.Videos circulating on social media and posted by the Russia-based Siberian Times appeared to show bears rummaging through parts of the settlement, as well as sort of wandering around and staring at people through windows, though these videos were not independently verified by Gizmodo.Russia's Novaya Zemlya is considering a cull to repel a "mass invasion" of polar bears, like this 1 in a young family's hallway.They should be hunting seals on sea ice but global warming is driving them to land @joli_mai
