Australia: Worst Drought on Record

The 2002 drought was quite probably the worst drought in the history of Australia since federation, but it was definitely the worst since proper financial records have been kept, according to the Chief Economist with ANZ bank, Saul Eslake. The Gross Domestic product figures showed a massive fall in farm income of around seventy percent and agricultural exports fell more than twenty-eight percent.

Link Between Stronger Global Warming and Cholera Rates

An analysis of four decades of disease records from Bangladesh shows that periods of extreme rainfall, drought or high temperatures sharply increase cholera rates, a pattern that shows global warming increases disease outbreaks.

Malaria. Dengue Fever. Encephalitis.

These names are not usually heard in emergency rooms and doctor's offices in the United States. But if we don't act to curb global warming, they will be. As temperatures rise, disease-carrying mosquitoes and rodents spread, infecting people in their wake. Doctors at the Harvard Medical School have linked recent U.S. outbreaks of dengue (breakbone) fever, malaria, hantavirus and other diseases to climate change.

University Of Florida Scientists Say Global Warming Could Spread Mosquito

VERO BEACH, Fla. --- Vanishing coastlines may not be the only peril in a global-warming world; disease-carrying Asian tiger mosquitoes may find the hotter temperatures to their liking and may show up in places theyve never been seen before, according to new research published this week.

Global warming interferes with Alaska oil drilling

WASHINGTON -- Global warming, which most climate experts blame mainly on large-scale burning of oil and other fossil fuels, is interfering with efforts in Alaska to discover yet more oil.

The U.S. Department of Energy plans to help oil companies and Alaska officials find a way around the problem.

Montana Meltdown:The Death of a National Park?

Glaciers move slowly, but Global Warming is ambling right along: all the glaciers in Glacier National Park could be gone as early as 2030! When President William Taft dedicated the park in 1910, 150 Glaciers graced the northern Montana mountainsides. Over the last century, rising temperatures have devastated the landscape. Today, just 37 glaciers remain, but they too are rapidly melting.

A Troubled Horizon for Arizona's Ranchers

Global Warming turns normal seasonal droughts into climate-warping disasters. In the mid-1990s, seasonal rains in Arizona's northern range country dried up. A dry year is tough, but in normal times, ranchers are tougher. What they didn't realize then was that the rains wouldn't return for nearly 6 years. Ranchers watched grasslands change to desert scrub, and looked on helplessly as huge tracks of land burned in mammoth summer fires. For many, the drought was simply too long and too harsh to weather; the parched land dried up profits and forced many off their historic ranches, perhaps forever.

The Power of Katrina

Katrina was the third most intense storm ever to make landfall in the United States, with a central pressure of 918 millibars. The storm affected an area of about the size of Britain, and the maximum storm surge was 10 metres, recorded in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Katrina shows effect of climate change, says Gore

Hurricane Katrina offered "a taste" of the disasters, and the response to them, that the US could expect as a consequence of climate change, former vice president Al Gore said on Saturday.

STORM WARNINGS

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners, founded in 1871 and headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, bills itself as the "oldest association of state officials" in the country. Every three months, its members, who include the chief insurance regulators of all fifty states plus the District of Columbia, hold a four-day meeting to discuss issues of common concern. The association's fall, 2005, meeting was scheduled for this past weekend, and, in addition to seminars on such perennial favorites as "Property Casualty Reinsurance" and "Receivership and Insolvency," the event's planners had organized a session on a new topic: global warming. Given recent events in Louisiana and Mississippi, a session on weather-related disasters would surely have been well attended. Unfortunately for the association, the meeting was booked into the Sheraton in downtown New Orleans.

Global Warming: The Culprit?

Nature doesnt always know when to quit--and nothing says that quite like a hurricane. The atmospheric convulsion that was Hurricane Katrina had barely left the Gulf Coast before its sister Rita was spinning to life out in the Atlantic. In the three weeks between them, five other named storms had lived and died in the warm Atlantic waters without making the same headlines their ferocious sisters did. With more than two months left in the official hurricane season, only Stan, Tammy, Vince and Wilma are still available on the National Hurricane Centers annual list of 21 storm names. If the next few weeks go like the past few, those names will be used up too, and the storms that follow will be identified simply by Greek letters. Never in the 52 years we have been naming storms has there been a Hurricane Alpha.

Global Warming a Major Threat to Africa

Deadly epidemics. Ruined crops. The extinction of some of Africas legendary wildlife. The potential consequences of global warming could be devastating for the worlds poorest continent, yet its nations are among the least equipped to cope.
