Home heating costs will likely fall in New England … The prospects are grim for drought-plagued Ethiopian children, who could see rainfall decline by 10 percent over the next 50 years. Widespread poverty and dependence on subsistence agriculture make Africans the most vulnerable to climate change. Given the possibility that NatGeo was an enthusiastic issue, we think it would be a good idea to bring out a more measured NatGeo Our blog readers are a skilled and diverse.
National Geographic - August 2006
They will prepare and distribute the actuality of the NatGeo claims as understood in Please feel free to use these in the re-write, a step which would gain you prestige because scientifically, it is the ethical move. NatGeo has apologised for some past errors. The July edition had some images of hunters with tusks captioned to be from a dead elephant found in the bush. Trouble was, the tusks had numbers on them showing capture several years before in another country. Earlier, there was the apology and subsequent stronger rules when an altered image of the Pyramids of Egypt was printed on the NatGeo cover of Feb That lead to a statement of NatGeo rules for altered images.
It fails criterion 2 below. Put this at the top the Climate Fail menu list. I sure hope that no one is holding their breath. I see no conceivable way that a revised issue could be anything but more alarmist. The Cause is the only thing of importance. That issue of National Geographic is why I cancelled my subscription, which I had maintained since Mine went overboard too. Scientific American was becoming thin, but I kept it until it became shrill and thin. There were old friends I grew up with.
Ditto on both NatGeo and SciAm. I loved those publications. That was a clear sign that any scientific integrity they had vis-a-vis climate science is kaput.
I was tired of what I labeled editorializing, ie. Every issue I have stumbled upon in reception rooms over the years confirms my original observation. It would be refreshing indeed to see some mainstream media outlet actually care about the truth of any story. Especially this one. They could become a trend setter. Climate and environment are just the means. Let the countdown begin now: T minus infinity seconds, infinity minus 1, minus 2, minus 3….
With in only two years of banning tree felling. Magic, eh? Perhaps they did a lot of re-planting with fully grown forests? About that Kilimanjaro thing. Abstract — Arthur P. Webba et. The dynamic response of reef islands to sea-level rise : Evidence from multi-decadal analysis of island change in the Central Pacific Low-lying atoll islands are widely perceived to erode in response to measured and future sea-level rise.
Using historical aerial photography and satellite images this study presents the first quantitative analysis of physical changes in 27 atoll islands in the central Pacific over a 19 to 61 yr period. This period of analysis corresponds with instrumental records that show a rate of sea-level rise of 2. As evidence their data is admissible as fraud, not temperature nor sea level rise.
Well done. A very nice statement. Other magazines need the same treatment. Too bad they National Geo. Adventure, National Geo. You should be writing about Sept. The current issue is likely delivered. Lead time might be 8 to 10 months on an issue. And almost exactly on temps trended down. An intriguing idea for a post.

It would be good to save this, along with the actual NatGeo update; note if they ever changed anything; and archive them for There may be no net global surface mean temperature increase by , according to models and studies performed since Nought to do with global warming. Though some later thought it fit to blame global warming anyway. Origin of the Amphibian Chytrid Fungus …..
The earliest case of chytridiomycosis found was in a Xenopus laevis frog in , and overall prevalence was 2. The prevalence showed no significant differences between species, regions, season, or time period. Chytridiomycosis was a stable endemic infection in southern Africa for 23 years before any positive specimen was found outside Africa…. They will have to adapt to change over as little as 60 years with unprecedented global warming.
Check this out. How do the predicted climatic changes IPCC, for the next century compare in magnitude and rate to those that Earth has previously encountered? Are there comparable intervals of rapid rates of temperature change, sea-level rise and levels of atmospheric CO2 that can be used as analogues to assess possible biotic responses to future change? Or are we stepping into the great unknown? For these intervals in time, case studies of past biotic responses are presented to demonstrate the scale and impact of the magnitude and rate of such climate changes on biodiversity.
We argue that although the underlying mechanisms responsible for these past changes in climate were very different i. What emerges from these past records is evidence for rapid community turnover, migrations, development of novel ecosystems and thresholds from one stable ecosystem state to another, but there is very little evidence for broad-scale extinctions due to a warming world. Based on this evidence from the fossil record, we make four recommendations for future climate-change integrated conservation strategies.
Will TRFs collapse? The fossil record can inform us about that. We analyzed the paleobotanical record of South America during the Paleogene and found that the TRF did not expand toward temperate latitudes during global warm events, even though temperatures were appropriate for doing so, suggesting that solar insolation can be a constraint on the distribution of the tropical biome.

Rather, a novel biome, adapted to temperate latitudes with warm winters, developed south of the tropical zone. The TRF did not collapse during past warmings; on the contrary, its diversity increased. The increase in temperature seems to be a major driver in promoting diversity. Importantly , the relatively pristine northern region showed no overall decline. Well done! These people should be forced to eat their own words, and back-peddle.
They have already backed themselves into such a corner that their posteriors bear a strange resemblance to the corner of a cube, but I say, make them back-peddle further. Like a boxer against the ropes, corner them until they throw in the towel. If this seems unkind of me, please remember they started it; they were cruel, and even destroyed some people.

Before they began back-peddling they were peddling falsehood with a club. Even a kind old fellow like me was accused of hating grandchildren, Mother Nature, and cute baby polar bears, and selling my soul to Big Oil, even though I heated with wood. This hurt my feelings tremendously, and if I could afford a good lawyer I probably could get some money for the damage they did to my tender and poetic psyche.
Because I cannot afford the nonsense of lawsuits, I simply feel they should be repaid, measure for measure, with what they dealt out. I did not desire these Climate Wars. I was minding my own business, and the war came to me. Sometimes algae reefs are mistaken for coral reefs. However, most of the reefs in the Caribbean are coral reefs epub.

September 3, No Comments. In the near future, companies will be able to support rainforest conservation and "offset" emissions by sponsoring forest protection in tropical countries. Precipitation: This is water that falls from the sky. The fundamental dynamic of the research in all of these studies from the Bulletin is based on crossing lines, on linking things that are not usually linked —places, disciplines, topics, methods, observer and observed, nature and culture — and in all cases this becomes a source of special insight National Geographic Magazine, Volume Although most have been filled in for residential development, some still occur in isolated pockets throughout the region Time Magazine September 18 Torching the Amazon Can the Rain Forest be Saved?
Wake up to bird song along the Brodribb River, discover the lushness of rainforests and hidden, moss-lined streams, and be awed by massive trees that were growing before Shakespeare was born. Over four days March tour leaders with years of experience in the forests of this region will help you explore rainforests, search for giant trees, spotlight for nocturnal wildlife and help with threatened species surveys online. In North America, depending upon your location, you can start as early as March and go as late as November. There are four ways to participate in Bee Hunt: Bee Hunt is a great way to teach and learn about pollination ecology and other aspects of natural history Life Magazine, November 30, The Society's map archives have been used by the United States government in instances where its own cartographic resources were limited.
In , the magazine started publishing photographs on its covers. The magazine cover, while keeping its yellow border, shed its oak leaf trim and bare table of contents, for a large photograph taken from one of the month's articles. By the end of the twentieth century, National Geographic magazine was published in thirty-two different language editions around the world. A Bulgarian edition of the magazine was launched in November and a Slovenian edition was launched in May A Serbian edition of National Geographic was launched with the November issue.
In contrast to the United States , where membership in the National Geographic Society was formerly the only way to receive the magazine, the worldwide editions are sold on newsstands in addition to regular subscriptions. In several countries, such as Hungary , Slovenia, Croatia , and Turkey , National Geographic paved the way for a subscription model for magazines in addition to traditional newsstand sales.
The famous cover photograph of the June issue of National Geographic was of an Afghan refugee , a beautiful young girl with hauntingly green eyes.

The girl was one of the students in an informal school within the refugee camp; McCurry, rarely given the opportunity to photograph Afghan women, seized the opportunity and captured her image. She was approximately 12 years old at the time. Although her name was not known, her picture, titled "Afghan Girl," appeared on the June cover of National Geographic. The image of her face, with a red scarf draped loosely over her head and with her piercing sea-green eyes staring directly into the camera, became a symbol both of the s Afghan conflict and of the refugee situation worldwide.
The image itself was named as "the most recognized photograph" in the history of the magazine. After the U. Remarkably, the photographer found her, and she was identified in as Sharbat Gula, a Pashtun woman married and living with her family, and quite unaware of her fame as a photographic subject. Her story was told in the April issue of National Geographic and in a National Geographic television documentary. She claimed that the two famous photos of her, the one from and the follow-up in , were virtually the only times she had ever been photographed.
A fund named after Gula was created and originally funded by the Society; it was further supplemented by contributions from thousands of readers. This resulted in a partnership between National Geographic and the Asia Foundation in the creation of a girls' school in Afghanistan that taught hundreds of teenage girls both a vocational and a basic education , in addition to providing a hot meal and health care.
