UN panel: Global warming human-caused, dangerous - US News | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON (AP) — This Aug. 19, 2014 file photo shows flash flood waters from the overrun Skunk Creek flood I-10 in northwestern Phoenix. Global warming is here, human-caused and can already be considered dangerous, a draft of a new international science report says, warning that it is increasingly likely that climate change could be irreversible.

Last August, Hurricane Irene spun through the Caribbean and parts of the eastern United States, leaving widespread wreckage in its wake.

 

However, researchers from MIT and Princeton University have found that with climate change, such storms could make landfall far more frequently, causing powerful, devastating storm surges every three to 20 years.

NASA - Is a Sleeping Climate Giant Stirring in the Arctic?

Frozen Arctic soils hold vast stores of carbon that may exacerbate global warming. A NASA Arctic campaign is looking for signals that may hold a key to Earth's climate future.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Ultimately, the scientists hope their observations will indicate whether an irreversible permafrost tipping point may be near at hand. While scientists don't yet believe the Arctic has reached that tipping point, no one knows for sure. "We hope CARVE may be able to find that 'smoking gun,' if one exists," Miller said.
