Records melt in another hot year for the climate The Age 7 Aug 2013
» Sea levels reached a record high, possibly linked to the Pacific Ocean phenomenon La Nina, which can have a cooling effect
» Arctic sea ice shrank to its smallest summer minimum since satellite records began 34 years ago, while Antarctic sea ice reached a record high
» More than 97 per cent of the ice sheet covering Greenland melted at least a bit in the summer of 2012, four times greater than the 1981-2010 average
» Average sea surface temperatures rose, but not much, making 2012 among the 11th warmest years on record
» Ocean heat was near-record high levels in the upper 800 metres of the water, and temperatures also increased in the deep ocean
Meant to be a guide for policymakers, the report did not attribute the changes in climate to any one factor, but made note of continued increases in heat-trapping greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide.
REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE UP INVENTIONS THAT SOLVED THE WORLD?
19-year-old Boyan Slat has unveiled plans to create an Ocean Cleanup Array that could remove 7,2500,000 tons of plastic waste from the world’s oceans. The device consists of an anchored network of floating booms and processing platforms that could be dispatched to garbage patches around the world. Instead of moving through the ocean, the array would span the radius of a garbage patch, acting as a giant funnel. The angle of the booms would force plastic in the direction of the platforms, where it would be separated from plankton, filtered and stored for recycling.
