In a world that pays millions of euros to "buy" a person who plays ball ... Quiet, let's go! Do not fret, nothing is going to happen to us. Let us continue to live with the interest of this lifestyle of consumerism and selfish behavior. We are interested only in the wonder of football, our family, friends, work, travel and a social life where the trivialities prevail: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Play, Wii, Xbox, Sms, WhatsApp with their photos and unique videos. We continue to squander (using the new technologies) without thinking or giving importance to the environmental news ... Many people believe that they are never an immediate political problem, but only in the long term, therefore, it can be postponed. p> May 2017 411.27 ppm of carbon dioxide was recorded in the atmosphere. Be very careful, eyes wide open with what is also happening in the first six months of 2017, the general trend clearly shows that the world is heating up We must rethink the historical, social and economic models that celebrate our culture in a Promethean way, which devalues ​​nature and which is responsible for the appalling destruction of the environment. Let us not forget that we are embarked in the same boat.

Heat records make 2016 a dark year for the climate

/ p>

"Record" reduction of polar ice, floods, droughts, rising heat waves ... the latest "State of the Weather" annual report offers a bleak picture of our planet for the third consecutive year, in which the global temperature to beat records since the beginning of the surveys in 1880 . "Last year's heat records are a product of the combined influence of long-term global warming trends and a strong El Niño at the beginning of the year," the Pacific equatorial hot current of the Pacific explains the a report published Thursday by the United States Marine and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The 300-page document, which brings together contributions from nearly 500 scientists from more than 60 countries, clearly shows that the main indicators of climate change continue to reflect trends in the wake of intensification of global warming.

In 2016, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations reached 402.9 parts per million (ppm), surpassing for the first time the 400 ppm in the modern history and in the glaciers surveys that date of until 800,000 years.In the first register (1958) the concentration of CO2 was of 313 PPM "The growth rate will fall when emissions are made."

However, carbon dioxide will continue to rise, albeit more slowly. Only when emissions are cut in half, the atmospheric level of carbon dioxide will decrease. 2016: new records of climate change

In 2016, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations reached 402.9 parts per million (ppm), exceeding for the first time 400 ppm in modern history and in glacier surveys dating to 800,000 years.

Several countries, including Mexico and India, recorded record annual temperatures in 2016.
A week-long heat wave in the Indian peninsula, with temperatures reaching 44 ° C, caused more than 300 deaths and a water shortage that affected 330 million people.

In the Arctic, the region most sensitive to warming, the average surface temperature last year was two degrees above the 1981-2010 average, breaking all records. of winter in March, the maximum extent of Arctic ice was the lowest in 37 years of satellite observations.

In the Antarctic, this extension was also much lower than the average for the period 1981-2010. As for the global temperature of the oceans, it was also the highest (+0, 1 ° C) than the trend from 1950 to 2016, the report said.

- Fears of censorship -

The melting of sea ice and ice caps polar winds raised sea levels to a new record 82 millimeters above the 1993 average.

In the equatorial regions 93 tropical storms occurred last year, more than 82 on average between 1981 and 2010 but less than the 101 that were in 2015.

"Climate change is one of the most pressing problems of humanity and life on Earth," wrote the authors of this landmark report, available on the internet.

Orchidaceae - Rainforest Plants
Orchid pollen is carried in packets called pollinia, ensuring that all ovules of one flower are pollinated by a single parent. Orchids need fungi that form mycorrhizas, and seeds do not germinate without these fungi being present (Bell 1991).
