Directory:Global Warming > Directory:Global Warming Ramifications > Errant climate may be sign of breakdown, scientists say - Floods, fires, melting ice, and feverish heat -- from smoke-choked Moscow to water-soaked Iowa and the High Arctic -- the planet seems to be having a midsummer breakdown. It is not just a portent of things to come, scientists say, but a sign of troubling climate change already under way. The weather-related cataclysms of July and August fit patterns predicted by climate scientists. (Boston Globe/AP August 13, 2010)

Latest: Directory:Global Warming > PowerPedia:Greenhouse gases >Directory:Oxygen Depletion - Global warming is not the only consequence of increasing greenhouse gasses. Oxygen used to be about 20% of the atmosphere but today, in some places, it is as low as 16%, leading to a wide range of health and vitality consequences. Oceanic hypoxia is likewise spreading at an alarming rate. (PESWIki Oct. 19, 2008)
