El mar se calienta pero no en la profundidad
October 16, 2014 11:46 AM - Carol Rasmussen, NASA Earth Science News Team

Las aguas frías del océano profundo de la Tierra no se han calentado perceptiblemente desde 2005, según un nuevo estudio de la NASA, dejando sin resolver el misterio de por qué el calentamiento global parece haber disminuido en los últimos años. Los científicos del Laboratorio de Propulsión a Chorro de la NASA (JPL) en Pasadena, California, analizaron datos de satélite y de temperatura directa del mar desde 2005 hasta 2013 y encontraron que el abismo del océano por debajo de 1.24 millas (1,995 metros) no se ha calentado de manera perceptible. El coautor del estudio Josh Willis, del JPL, dijo estas conclusiones no arrojan sospechas sobre el propio cambio climático. "El nivel del mar sigue aumentando", señaló Willis. "Estamos tratando de entender los detalles esenciales."

While Water Warms, NASA Study Reveals Deep Sea Hasn't

The cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, according to a new NASA study, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years. Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably. Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself.

Burlington, Vermont - Now 100% Powered by Renewable Energy
September 17, 2014 01:50 PM - Kevin Mathews

Burlington, Vermont, already considered to be one of the United States's most environmentally progressive cities, has added another line to its impressive green resume. Just recently, the city finalized its transition to relying 100% on renewable resources for its energy. Burlington is Vermont's large city, though that in itself is no big feat — the city has a population of just 42,000. Then again, very few communities of even this size have managed to disassociate themselves from fossil fuels. In order to adequately tackle climate change, cities — big and small — need to prioritize finding and utilizing alternative energy solutions. Burlington had expressed a desire to commit to 100% renewable energy for more than a decade, but it became a real possibility when analysts discovered that it was not only a smart environmental choice, but financially viable, too. In the long run, both the city and residents will not be paying more for clean energy than they were when buying fossil fuels.
