Understanding rise, fall and re-emergence of plague strains

One branch of a deadly pathogen’s family tree may have ended centuries ago, but from its ancient traces researchers can read a lineage with links to the modern world.

Report: Global temperatures to rise at least 4°C by 2100

Global average temperatures will rise at least 4°C by 2100 and potentially more than 8°C by 2200 if carbon dioxide emissions are not reduced according to new research published in Nature. Scientists found global climate is more sensitive to carbon dioxide than most previous estimates.

The rise and fall of galactic cities

In the fable of the town and country mice, the country mouse visits his city-dwelling cousin to discover a world of opulence. In the early cosmos, billions of years ago, galaxies resided in the equivalent of urban or country environments.

Sea-level rise to drive coastal flooding, regardless of changes in hurricane activity

Clamor about whether climate change will cause increasingly destructive tropical storms may be overshadowing a more unrelenting threat to coastal property — sea-level rise — according to a team of researchers writing in the journal Nature this week.

Glacier melting rate helps forecast sea level rise

Predictions of sea level rise could become more accurate, thanks to new insight into how glacier movement is affected by melting ice in summer. Studies of the Greenland ice sheet, including during a record warm summer, are helping scientists better understand how summer conditions affect its flow. This is important for predicting the future contribution made by melting glaciers to sea level rise.

Thousand years of sea rise 'inevitable'

Whatever we do, greenhouse gas emissions have alreadytriggered an irreversible warming of Earth that will cause sea levels to rise for more than a thousand years to come, claims a European team.

US East Coast set for severe sea level rise

Sea level rises are accelerating along parts of the US East Coast as much as four times faster than the average for the rest of the world.

Ice sheet collapse led to dramatic sea level rise

Scientists studying coral off the coast of Tahiti have linked a collapse of the world's ice sheets 14,600 years ago to a sudden 14-meter rise in global sea-levels.

Get ready to go ape

It’s easy to not be aware of the fact, or to forget there were actually five Planet of the Apes movies back in the day, because the follow ups mostly weren’t that great, and the original 1967 Apes movie was an absolute classic. 



The fall and rise of Planet of the Apes

As a big fan of the original Planet of the Apes, of course I was skeptical before Rise of the Planet of the Apes came out. 



Mystery deepens over ice age rise in CO2

The large increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide at the end of the last ice age wasn't released by the oceans, scientists have concluded.

US coastal cities vulnerable as sea level rises

Rising sea levels could threaten an average of nine percent of the land within 180 US coastal cities by 2100.

Microsoft issues warning over wave of Java attacks

 Microsoft security expert has warned that Java-based malware attacks are on the rise.
