Alerte climatique:Confirmation de l’instabilité du glacier le plus sensible de l’Antarctique de l’Est

Des scientifiques prévoient que la fonte d’un immense glacier de l’Antarctique de l’est, le Totten, pourrait conduire à une élévation du niveau de la mer de plus de 2 mètres. L’analyse de la topographie rocheuse sur laquelle repose le glacier montre que des régions instables risquent de favoriser des phases de retrait rapide à l’avenir, comme cela a déjà […]

The rise of Modi and Trump actually reflects the revolt of the elite, not the poor as claimed — Quartz

Donald Trump’s election as the 45th US president illustrates the global ascendance of the political right. Comparisons with Indian prime minister Narendra Modi whose rise predates Trump’s by two years, are inevitable. The two leaders share an evident admiration for each other. Both are hugely popular among their respective constituencies—Hindu nationalists for Modi and white…

Bolivian Water Crisis as Glaciers Vanish, Population Grows — nuclear-news

Originally posted on GarryRogers Nature Conservation: GR: Many places will have to begin pumping groundwater. That’s a temporary solution, however. Here in the arid western United States, we’ve seen what happens as the depth to water falls and the cost of pumping rises. We’ve also seen how toxic metals concentrate in shrinking groundwater aquifers. One…

Alert humanity at risk: the crust of the Earth fracture in an area where there are no known volcanoes

Une importante fissure qui s'agrave. A large crack that agrave.

A large crack that agrave day after day.

 

 

 

 

Until June 6, 2014, the Indian continent had not seen active volcanism during the last 60 million years. On 6 June 2014, a crack opened in the ground near the village of Gadiya in Kangra district of the state Himachal Pradesh, India. Flames, gas and volcanic magma came out of a hole four yards wide, soil and researchers office of Indian Geological Survey confirmed that magma is, is the production of lava that comes from deep within the earth and pierced the crust.

Recent picture of the event.

 

This is the first volcanic eruption ever seen in India, because the man was not there when the latter arrived there 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period.

The Deccan Traps marked the last, breaking the crust releasing a large effusion of magma in India. They are one of the largest volcanic provinces in the world. It consists of more than 6,500 feet (> 2000 m) lying basalt lava flows and covers an area of ​​nearly 200,000 square miles (500,000 square kilometers) (about the size of Washington and Oregon combined) in the center West India. Estimates of the original area covered by lava flows are as high as 600,000 square miles (1,500,000 square kilometers). The volume of basalt is estimated at 12,275 cubic miles (512,000 cubic km) (1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens produces 1 cubic km of volcanic material). The Deccan Traps flood basalts are similar to basalts of the Columbia River in northwestern United States. (Source)

The giant eruption of Deccan threw so many gases in the atmosphere, is suspected to have played an important role in mass extinctions.

Parliamentary Secretary Jagjivan Pal, in the district assembly Sulah and falls in the region, visited the place this Tuesday, June 10, 2014. He said flames and hot liquid from the hill had created the panic.

« The temperature in the region has increased significantly in the basement and people say an electric steel pole had become bright red, there a few days, » he has said. Pal said that a material such as sulfur black stone appeared and flows outside the perimeter of the hill. (Source)

The outpouring of lava and gas continues to flow and the villagers are informed that they may lose their home if it continues. The nearest village is only 90 meters from the square.

The eruption of Deccan like India and had a profound effect on the whole planet, hope this is not the start of something much, much more.

Les trapps du Deccan sont l'une des plus grandes provinces volcaniques dans le monde. Il se compose de plus de 6500 pieds (> 2000 m) de coulées de lave de basalte couchés et couvre une superficie de près de 200.000 miles carrés (500.000 kilomètres carrés) (environ la taille des États de Washington et de l'Oregon combiné) dans le centre-ouest Inde. Les estimations de la superficie initiale couverte par les coulées de lave sont aussi élevés que 600 000 miles carrés (1,5 million de kilomètres carrés). Le volume de basalte est estimé à 12 275 miles cubes (512 000 km cube) (éruption de 1980 du Mont Saint Helens produit 1 km cube de matière volcanique). Les trapps du Deccan sont des basaltes d'inondation similaires aux basaltes du fleuve Columbia du nord-ouest des États-Unis.

Les basaltes du Deccan ont peut-être joué un rôle dans l'extinction des dinosaures. La plupart du basalte a été éclaté il ya entre 65 et 60 millions d'années.

Vocanologists tentent également de comprendre comment ces grands volumes de lave sont éclaté. Les premiers modèles ont proposé que la lave inonda sur de vastes superficies à des tarifs extrêmement rapides. Modèles proposés ont récemment suggéré qu'au moins une partie des flux sont mis en place à des taux progressifs, durable mois à plusieurs années.

The sixth mass extinction started: Millions of fish found dead last month

Des millions de poissons morts...
Millions of fish dead…

 

Millions of fish are suddenly dying all over the planet.  In fact, there have been dozens of mass fish death events reported in the past month alone.  So why is this happening?  Why are fish dying in unprecedented numbers all over the world?  When more than six tons of fish died in Marina Del Rayover the weekend, it made headlines all over the United States.  But the truth is that what just happened off the southern California coast is just the tip of the iceberg.  In 2014, mass fish die-offs have pretty much become a daily event globally.  Individually, each event could perhaps be dismissed as an anomaly, but as you will see below when they are all put together into one list it truly is rather stunning.  So is there a reason why so many fish are dying?  Is there something that connects these mass fish death events?  Has something about our environment changed?  The following are just a few examples of the mass fish death reports that have been coming in day after day from all over the globe…

*In April, 500,000 carp were found “floating belly-up in Kentucky’s Cumberland River“.

*Over the weekend, thousands upon thousands of fish died just off the southern California coastline

California Fish and Wildlife workers are still scooping dead sea life from the surface of the harbor Monday after thousands of dead anchovies, stingrays and even an octopus died and floated up over the weekend.

So far officials have cleaned up 6 tons of dead fish, and they still have a long way to go.

*The death of approximately 35,000 fish up in Minnesota is being blamed on a “lack of oxygen“.

*The recent die off of thousands of fish in the Shark River near Belmar, New Jersey is also being blamed on “oxygen depletion“.

*Officials in Menifee, California are still trying to figure out what caused the death of thousands of fish in Menifee Lake a few weeks ago…

Authorities continued testing the water in Menifee Lake Friday after thousands of dead fish have been seen floating since last weekend.

 

Menifee city officials first heard reports Saturday of floating fish at the lake, which is located on private property about a half-mile east of the 215 Freeway.

*In the Gulf of Mexico, dolphins and sea turtles are dying “in record numbers“.

*Maryland officials are still puzzled by the death of 7,000 Atlantic menhadenlast month…

State environmental scientists are investigating the cause of a fish kill that left about 7,000 dead Atlantic menhaden in waters that include the Inner Harbor and Fells Point.

Jay Apperson, spokesman for the Maryland Department of the Environment, said that biologists went by boat on Tuesday to the area of Monday’s fish kill. He says the area extended from the mouth of the Patapsco River, up the Baltimore Harbor to Fells Point and Fort McHenry.

*Mass fish die-offs in Lake Champlain up in Vermont are being called “the new normal” by government officials.

*Along the coast of northern California, seals and young sea lions are dying “in record numbers“.

*Three months ago, farmers in Singapore lost 160 tons of fish to a mass die-off event.

*Back in September, approximately 40 kilometers of the Fuhe River in China “was covered with dead fish“.

*Also during last September, close to ten tons of dead fish were found floating on a lake near the town of Komotini, Greece.

The following are some more examples of mass fish death events from just the past several weeks that come from a list compiled on another website
