  1. Estudio: Una de cada seis especies podría desaparecer debido al cambio climático...

    Si el cambio climático no se detiene desaparecerá el 16% de las especies de plantas y animales del planeta, una de cada seis, alarman los científicos.

    De acuerdo con el artículo 'Acelerando el riesgo de extinción por el cambio climático' publicado en la revista 'Science', basado en 131 estudios sobre los índices de extinción, la pérdida de biodiversidad se acelerará con cada grado centígrado que se caliente el planeta.

    Según los científicos, la temperatura media de la superficie de la Tierra ya ha aumentado 1,5ºC desde la Revolución Industrial, y animales como los osos polares ven amenazada su supervivencia en un mundo cambiante Asimismo, las especies de América del Sur, Australia y Nueva Zelanda están particularmente en riesgo.

    "No hemos visto muchas extinciones todavía, y creo que eso se debe a que aún estamos en una fase en la que el clima contribuye pero no es determinante", opina Mark Urban, de la Universidad de Connecticut, EE.UU., y autor principal del estudio. "Las extinciones debido al cambio climático se harán oír entre estos otros factores", señaló.

    No obstante el investigador ha afirmado que "los seres humanos todavía tienen tiempo para evitar la extinción generalizada causada por el cambio climático, pero la ventana de la oportunidad se está cerrando". "Vamos a tener que tomar algunas decisiones, dependiendo de cuánto se caliente la Tierra", agregó Urban.

  2. Φονικές καταιγίδες στην Κούβα ...

    Τρεις νεκροί και 10 χιλιάδες πληγέντες είναι ο μέχρι στιγμής απολογισμός σφοδρών καταιγίδων στην Κούβα.

    Κτίρια κατέρρευσαν ή υπέστησαν μεγάλες ζημιές ενώ πλημμύρισαν συνοικίες της Αβάνας σύμφωνα με τοπικά μέσα ενημέρωσης.

    Όπως μεταδίδουν, θύελλα η οποία σχηματίστηκε με μεγάλη ταχύτητα στα στενά της Φλόριντας μπροστά από ένα ψυχρό μέτωπο έπληξε την πρωτεύουσα τις πρώτες πρωινές ώρες της Τετάρτης, προκαλώντας σφοδρές καταιγίδες και ανέμους ταχύτητας 98 χιλιομέτρων την ώρα.

    Η Πολιτική Προστασία της Κούβας διευκρίνισε ότι συνολικά 10.089 άνθρωποι επλήγησαν από την κακοκαιρία και φιλοξενούνται από οικείους τους ή σε κέντρα έκτακτης ανάγκης που άνοιξαν μετά τα ακραία καιρικά φαινόμενα.

  3. Σε ισχύ από την 1η Μαΐου η αντιπυρική περίοδος...

    Οδηγίες-συμβουλές για την πρόληψη των δασικών πυρκαγιών, με αφορμή την έναρξη της αντιπυρικής περιόδου από την Παρασκευή 1 Μαΐου, δίνει η Πυροσβεστική Υπηρεσία.

    Τονίζει ότι οι δασικές πυρκαγιές που εκδηλώνονται κάθε χρόνο στη χώρα οφείλονται κατά μεγάλο ποσοστό στην ανθρώπινη αμέλεια, ενώ οι κλιματολογικές συνθήκες που επικρατούν τους καλοκαιρινούς μήνες σε συνδυασμό με το έντονο γεωφυσικό ανάγλυφο, ευνοούν την ταχεία εξάπλωσή τους.

    Το Πυροσβεστικό Σώμα δίνει οδηγίες για την αποτροπή των πυρκαγιών:

    Δεν πετάμε ποτέ αναμμένα τσιγάρα και σπίρτα, όταν βρισκόμαστε στο δάσος. Το τσιγάρο αποτελεί την πρώτη αιτία πρόκλησης πυρκαγιάς από αμέλεια.
    Δεν καίμε ξερά χόρτα, κλαδιά, καλάμια και σκουπίδια στην ύπαιθρο.
    Αποφεύγουμε τις υπαίθριες εργασίες που ενδέχεται να προκαλέσουν πυρκαγιά (οξυγονοκολλήσεις, χρήση τροχού ή άλλου εργαλείου που προκαλεί σπινθήρες).
    Δεν ανάβουμε υπαίθριες ψησταριές κατά τους θερινούς μήνες εντός των δασών ή σε χώρους που υπάρχουν ξερά χόρτα....in.gr

  4. Blind man, armless friend plant thousands of trees in China...

    A once-barren bank of the Ye river in central China now has 12,000 trees irrigated by a small canal, thanks to unlikely but dedicated gardeners: two friends, one blind and one without arms.

    For the past 13 years, the two have planted and watered cedar trees near their village in Hebei province in what originally was supposed to be a commercial venture but became a mission supported by local officials to improve the air in a region more famous for its stifling pollution than for its rolling hills.

    The story of Jia Wenqi, 53, with no arms, and his blind friend, Jia Haixia, 54, is one of perseverance, environmental awakening and of finding a path in a country where it is difficult for the disabled to find jobs.

    "This empty riverbank was only dry sand and pebbles. It was deserted for many years. For normal people, it was impossible to plant trees there," Wenqi said in an interview on the riverbank. "But as the saying goes: Nothing is impossible to a willing heart."

    Every morning Haixia grabs onto the empty sleeve of Wenqi, who leads the way to the riverbank and then carries Haixia on his back across the shallow Ye river to their plantation. Haixia climbs trees to prune them of branches to be used as cuttings to plant new trees, using his hands to feel for the branches. Wenqi digs holes for the cuttings, tucking a shovel between his cheek and shoulder to aim it and then using his foot to drive it into the ground. He also uses his feet to fetch water from the river with a bucket and pour the water around the newly planted tree.

    "Just ask a normal person to work with his arms in his pockets, like Wenqi!" Haixia said. "We handicapped people have an endurance that normal people don't possess."

    The two childhood friends share a surname but are not closely related, though they both grew up in Yeli Village, part of the Hebei city of Shijiazhuang.

    Unable to find work, they started their venture in 2002 with the modest goal of planting around 800 trees a year. But a drought devastated their first crop, and they have never made any money from the plantation. Instead they get by on modest government assistance for disabled people. However, they have stuck with the tree-planting and now feel they have a purpose: to improve the local environment......AP......dailystar.com.lb

    Ukraine's state gas business Naftogaz and Russia's Gazprom are bound by a 10-year gas agreement signed in 2009. Kiev is challenging the price of Russian gas, and billions of dollars in debts which Russia says have accrued, and appealing to international arbitrators for a definitive ruling.

    "The transit contract is not fair for Ukraine and more than $10 billion should be paid to Naftogaz from Gazprom to compensate for losses.

  8. Amazonian Tribes Unite to Demand Brazil Stop Hydroelectric Dams...

    Four Amazonian tribes have joined forces to oppose the construction of hydroelectric dams in their territory as the Brazilian government ramps up efforts to exploit the power of rivers in the world’s biggest forest.

    The Munduruku, Apiaká, Kayabi and Rikbaktsa released a joint statement on Thursday demanding the halt of construction on a cascade of four dams on the Teles Pires – a tributary of the Tapajós.

    They say the work at the main area of concern – the São Manoel dam – threatens water quality and fish stocks. The site has already reportedly expanded almost to the edge of a nearby village, although the local communities say they have not been consulted as they obliged to be under national laws and international standards.

    “The government builds dams without completing environmental studies, without seeking to understand the consequences of the destruction of nature in our lives. It authorizes the operation of dams without giving a response to indigenous people and leaving their lives without fish, without water, without hunting as they try to hide their negative impacts on our lives, our rivers and our territories,” the statement read....earthfirstjournal.org

  9. Chernobyl Sarcophagus Faces €85Mln Funding Shortfall - Spanish Newspaper...

    A massive engineering project to make the Chernobyl nuclear power plant safe is facing a €85 million funding shortfall, Spanish El Pais newspaper reported.

    A makeshift sarcophagus built in the explosion’s aftermath was supposed to protect the environment from radiation for at least 30 years. But it has since developed cracks.

    The project to build a new radiation container had been due for completion this year but the deadline was pushed to November 2017, as costs mushroomed from an initial estimate of €800 million to more than €2.15 billion now.

    International donors agreed to pay an extra 180 million euros to fund the construction of a new cover for the disused Chernobyl nuclear power plant at a conference in London on Wednesday.

  10. Nepal urges foreign rescue workers in capital to return home...

    Nepal's government urged foreign rescue workers in the quake-hit capital to return home Monday as hundreds of people visited Buddhist shrines and monasteries to mark the birthday of Gautam Buddha.

    Information Minister Minendra Rijal said the major rescue work in Kathmandu and surrounding areas have been completed and that the remaining operations can be handled by local workers. However, work remained in the villages and remote mountain areas and foreign aid volunteers could work with local police and army rescuers in those areas, he said.

    Since the April 25 earthquake, 4,050 rescue workers from 34 different nations have flown to Nepal to help in rescue operations, provide emergency medical care and distribute food and other necessities.

  11. Pilot to fly solar plane across Pacific for 5 days, 5 nights...

    A pilot said Sunday that he is anxious but excited about flying a solar plane solo from China to Hawaii on the longest leg of the first attempt to fly around the world without a drop of fuel.

    André Borschberg, 62, is due to fly over the Pacific Ocean for five days and five nights in the plane that has more than 17,000 solar cells on its wings to power its motors and recharge its batteries for nighttime flying.

    The Solar Impulse 2 set off from Abu Dhabi in March and has stopped in Oman, India and Myanmar. Borschberg and another Swiss pilot, Bertrand Piccard, are taking turns flying the single-seater Swiss plane during a five-month journey to promote renewable energy use.

    The 8,175-kilometer (5,079-mile) flight from Nanjing in eastern China to Hawaii - which may take off Thursday, depending on weather - is the seventh of 12 flights. None of the previous legs were more than 20 hours - compared with an estimated flight time of 120 hours to Hawaii.

    "It's the most challenging, yes, in the sense that we never flew over the oceans," Borschberg said in a phone interview from Nanjing.....AP......dailystar.com.lb

  14. Egypt to attract 20 pct more tourists this year: minister...

    Egypt will attract about 20 percent more visitors this year compared with 2014, the tourism minister said Monday, as the holiday sector recovers after four years of political upheaval, violence and street protests.

    About 2.15 million tourists visited the country in the first quarter, up 6.9 percent from a year ago, Khaled Ramy said. Advance bookings indicate the full-year total would be around 12 million, below 2010's peak of 14.7 million but above 2014's 9.9 million.

    "In the next four-and-a-half years we have to increase by double-digit [percentages] every year," the minister said.

  17. ISS orbit to be adjusted for Soyuz TMA-15M landing...

    The Mission Control Center (MCC) outside Moscow will adjust the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday, MCC told TASS on Tuesday.

    "The Progress M-26M spaceship engine will be ignited at 08:15 am, Moscow time, on May 6 and will work for 736 seconds, giving an impulse of 1.34 metres per second to the station," the source said. According to him, the ISS orbit will be raised by 2.13 km in this manoeuvre to reach 400 km in average.

    The orbit adjustment manoeuvre will be made to ensure the conditions for landing of the Soyuz TMA-15M spacecraft that is scheduled for May 14.

    According to previous reports, due to the contingency with the Progress M-27M cargo spacecraft that was launched on April 28, the manoeuvre could be cancelled or postponed.

    1. Indonesia urged to combat wildlife smuggling...

      An Indonesia-based environmental protection organization has called on the government to tighten measures against the smuggling of wildlife after police discovered more than 20 endangered birds in plastic bottles on a ship.

      The chairman of ProFauna Indonesia told Anadolu Agency on Wednesday that the port in Surabaya city where a man was recently arrested for smuggling 23 live birds -- including 22 endangered yellow-crested cockatoos -- was a transit point in the illegal trade of protected wildlife.

      "We asked the transportation department to tighten supervision of passengers," Rosek Nursahid said. "There should be a ban on bringing protected animals in public transportation such as train, aircraft, boat and bus."

      Police arrested Mulyono -- who like many Indonesians uses only one name -- at Tanjung Perak Port on Monday while he was carrying a yellow-crested cockatoo and a green parrot.

      National news agency Antara reported that police also seized 21 other yellow-crested cockatoos that Mulyono, 37, would not claim.

      Aldy Sulaiman, a police officer at the port, told reporters that the birds were listed as protected and were “put in bottles of mineral water" to prevent them from drawing suspicion by flapping their wings.

      Yellow-crested cockatoos have a value of around $1,500 each on the domestic market.....http://www.aa.com.tr/en/headline/505653--indo

    Typhoon Noul was about 480 km (300 miles) northeast of the town of Borongan in Eastern Samar province early on Friday, with wind gusts of up to 185 km per hour (115 mph), and was expected to make landfall as a category four storm at the weekend.

    Thousands of passengers have already been stranded in seaports along the central and eastern Philippines after authorities stopped vessels from sailing because of rough seas.

    Officials warned that heavy rain from the typhoon could cause lahar, or flows of mud and debris, around Mount Bulusan, a volcano that has been spewing ash this week.

    "There could be lahar flow, mudslides, that could sweep away houses in the area if there is heavy rain ... that is the danger," Esperanza Cayanan, division head at the weather bureau, told a briefing at the national disaster agency.

  30. Ενας στους τέσσερις Ελληνες διαθέτει ποδήλατο, ωστόσο το 3% το χρησιμοποιεί ως βασικό μέσο για τις μετακινήσεις του.

    Αυτό προκύπτει από έρευνα που διενεργήθηκε για λογαριασμό του WWF Ελλάς, στο πλαίσιο του προγράμματος «Καλύτερη Ζωή». Σύμφωνα με αυτήν, το 15% των Αθηναίων δήλωσε ότι «δεν έχει κάνει ποτέ/δεν ξέρει» ποδήλατο, ενώ περίπου το 40% έχει να κάνει ποδήλατο από παλιά ή την παιδική ηλικία τους.

    Τέλος, σχετικά με τη συχνότητα χρήσης του ποδηλάτου, το 21% των πολιτών είπε ότι το χρησιμοποιεί όσο συχνά θέλει ενώ το 32% το χρησιμοποίησε τον τελευταίο χρόνο.

    Three security workers and one traveller were injured when the suspension ceiling collapsed in the security control area at the entrance to the domestic terminal, the CNN-Turk television station reported.

    Turkish television images showed debris and broken support struts from the ceiling strewn around the X-Ray security machines and the injured being strapped into stretchers.

    Ataturk airport, named after modern Turkey's founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and located on the western outskirts of Istanbul, is the busiest airport in the country.

  32. More than 20 dead whales found beached in Chile...

    More than 20 whales were found dead and rotting along a rocky coast of southern Chile, maritime officials said Friday, as they tried to determine what killed them and when.

    The whales, discovered beached north of the Gulf of Penas, measured about 10 meters (33 feet) long, according to officials with Chile's national fisheries service.

    Officials identified them as sei whales, which are internationally protected after being hunted nearly to extinction during the middle of the 20th century.

    Images showed the decaying mammals grouped together and laid out along a grass-and-rock shoreline.

    They were discovered by a group of foreign scientists who were conducting research in the area.

    "The number of dead whales exceeded 20, but we have not tallied the total," a fisheries service source told AFP, declining to be identified.

    Bad weather was hampering attempts to determine exactly how many whales had died and when.......AFP......dailystar.com.lb

    1. Mais de 20 baleias encontradas encalhadas no Chile...

      As baleias, que foram descobertas encalhadas numa praia por uma equipa de cientistas internacionais que realizava investigação na área, medem aproximadamente de dez metros de comprimento.

      As más condições meteorológicas têm dificultado as tentativas de determinar exatamente quantas baleias morreram, quando e porquê.

      As autoridades identificaram-nas como baleias-sei -- também conhecidas como baleias sardinheiras -- uma espécie internacionalmente protegida depois de ter sido caçada quase até à extinção durante meados do século XX.

      "Estavam por todo o lado, nove estavam feridas, por isso acreditamos que sofreram uma 'maré vermelha' [florescimento de algas] ou um vírus", disse o biólogo alemão Vreni Haussermann, que lidera o grupo que encontrou as baleias, realçando que em 15 anos de investigação na área nunca viu nada assim.

      As baleias foram detetadas a 21 de abril pelo grupo de cientistas que só recentemente conseguiu alertar as autoridades chilenas.

  33. Food wastage an ‘enormous’ global concern, G20 says...

    Food wasted by consumers is an enormous economic problem and nations should ensure excess food is given to the hungry instead of being thrown away, agriculture ministers from the Group of 20 leading countries said yesterday (May 8).

    The two-day meeting in Istanbul has focused on problems of food security and nutrition, including the impact of climate change. A reduction in the amount of food wasted would improve food security, the ministers said in their final communique.

    “We note with great concern the significant extent of food loss and waste ... and their negative consequences for food security, nutrition, use of natural resources and the environment,” the ministers said.

    “We highlight this as a global problem of enormous economic, environmental and societal significance.”

    An estimated 1.3 billion tonnes of food, or roughly 30 per cent of global production, is lost or wasted annually, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said last year.

    UN agencies said this would easily feed the world’s 800 million hungry......Reuters.....todayonline.com

    L'épidémie d'Ebola est terminée au Liberia, où 42 jours se sont écoulés sans nouveaux cas signalés, a annoncé samedi à Monrovia un responsable de l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) lors d'une cérémonie officielle en présence de la présidente libérienne Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

    "Aujourd'hui, 9 mai 2015, l'OMS déclare le Liberia exempt de la transmission du virus Ebola. 42 jours se sont écoulés depuis le dernier cas confirmé en laboratoire", décédé et qui a été inhumé le 28 mars.

    "L'épidémie d'Ebola au Liberia est terminée", a affirmé ce responsable de l'OMS, Alex Gasasira.

    Le 9 mai a marqué l'expiration d'un délai de deux fois la période maximale d'incubation (21 jours) après le dernier décès enregistré, sans autre nouveau cas.

  38. Des sons bizarres enregistrés à 36 km d'altitude...

    Pour la première fois depuis un demi-siècle, les scientifiques ont enregistré des bruits étranges à la frontière entre la stratosphère et l'espace.

    Pour l'instant, les chercheurs n'ont pas réussi à identifier l'origine de ces sons mais l'intensité et la complexité des signaux infrasonores sont frappantes. Les chercheurs préparent de nouvelles expériences.

    Les sons ont été enregistrés à l'aide d'un équipement développé par un doctorant de l'Université de la Caroline du Nord, Daniel Bowman, dans le cadre d'un projet de la NASA. Au cours de l'expérience, des microphones spéciaux ont été transportés dans la haute atmosphère par un ballon gonflé d'hélium. Il est monté à une altitude de 37 500 mètres, soit largement au-dessus du niveau des vols d'avions, mais sous la frontière entre l'espace ouvert et les couches supérieures de la stratosphère.

    Les appareils ont enregistré des sifflements et des grésillements d'une fréquence inférieure à 20 Hz. Pour l'oreille humaine, ces signaux sont inaudibles. Pour entendre ces sons mystérieux, il faut donc accélérer l'enregistrement du microphone.

  39. Shell moves step closer to Arctic drilling off Alaska after clearing U.S. government hurdle...

    Royal Dutch Shell’s Arctic drilling program has cleared a major bureaucratic hurdle to begin drilling for oil and gas off Alaska’s northwestern coast this summer.

    The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management on Monday approved the multiyear exploration plan in the Chukchi Sea for Shell after reviewing thousands of comments from the public, Alaska Native organizations and state and federal agencies.

    The approval came just days before a planned protest of the drilling program in Seattle.

    Shell must still obtain other permits from state and federal agencies, including one to drill from the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The company must also obtain government opinions that find Shell can comply with terms and conditions of the Endangered Species Act.

    Shell spokesman Curtis Smith said the approval “is an important milestone and signals the confidence regulators have in our plan. However, before operations can begin this summer, it’s imperative that the remainder of our permits be practical, and delivered in a timely manner.....AP

      The approval depends on Shell getting a nod from other US regulators, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management said.

      Shell stopped Arctic exploration more than two years ago after problems including an oil rig fire and safety failures.

      Environmental campaigners oppose the move.

    That is about 150 kilometers from the epicenter of a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck on April 25, killing more than 8,000 people and leaving thousands homeless.

    The government and aid agencies have been working to provide food, water and shelter in an operation that struggled in its early days because of aftershocks, bad weather and the challenge of reaching outlying areas in the Himalayan nation........voanews.com

  46. Séisme de 6,8 au large des côtes du nord-est du Japon...

    (Belga) Un puissant séisme de magnitude 6,8 s'est produit mercredi matin au large des côtes du nord-est du Japon, a annoncé l'Institut américain de géophysique (USGS).

    Les autorités japonaises n'ont pas émis d'alerte au tsunami et aucun dégât n'a pour le moment été signalé. Le séisme a été enregistré à 06H12 locales (23H12 HB mardi) au large de la préfecture de Miyagi, sur l'île principale Honshu, dans l'océan Pacifique et à une profondeur de 38,9 km. L'agence météorologique japonaise a indiqué qu'il n'y avait pas de risque de tsunami. Une grande partie de la zone secouée, de l'île septentrionale de Hokkaido à Tokyo, avait été meurtrie le 11 mars 2011 par le tsunami qui a dévasté la région, fait plus de 18.000 morts et provoqué l'accident nucléaire de Fukushima. Cette fois, selon la chaîne de télévision publique NHK, les opérateurs des centrales atomiques de la région (dont le complexe saccagé Fukushima Daiichi) ont fait savoir qu'aucune nouvelle anomalie n'avait été relevée. Des trains ont été temporairement arrêtés pour le contrôle des voies, mais ont été remis en service quelques dizaines de minutes plus tard, selon la NHK. Tous les réacteurs du Japon sont actuellement stoppés pour des mises en conformité aux nouvelles normes rendues plus sévères, avant une éventuelle remise en exploitation. Le Japon est situé à la jonction de quatre plaques tectoniques et enregistre chaque année environ 20% des séismes les plus violents recensés sur la planète. (Belga)

  48. Geological experts on a panel under the Nuclear Regulation Authority said Wednesday that faults running beneath a nuclear plant in central Japan may be active, clouding the prospects for resuming its operations...

    Four outside experts of the five-member panel told a meeting it is possible the fault running right under the No. 1 reactor at Hokuriku Electric Power Co.’s two-unit plant in Shika, Ishikawa Prefecture, is active.

    The panel also pointed out that two other faults beneath the Nos. 1 and 2 turbine buildings could have moved in the past.

    Building reactors or other nuclear facilities directly above active faults is prohibited. The issue came into the spotlight after the triple meltdown at Tepco’s crippled Fukushima No. 1 plant, which was triggered by a megaquake and tsunami. The disaster resulted in all of the country’s commercial reactors being taken offline by September 2013.....Kyodo/japantimes.co.jp

    Όπως διαπιστώθηκε ύστερα από έρευνα κλιμακίου της UNESCO, η παρουσία μεγάλου αριθμού επισκεπτών αυξάνει τα ποσοστά υγρασίας, επηρεάζοντας κατ’ αυτόν τον τρόπο το μικροκλίμα στους επισκέψιμους χώρους. Κατά συνέπεια οι συνθήκες που δημιουργούνται είναι ιδιαίτερα επιβαρυντικές για τις αριστουργηματικές νωπογραφίες. Το πρόβλημα παρατηρείται κυρίως τις Κυριακές, οπότε η είσοδος στον αρχαιολογικό χώρο είναι ελεύθερη.
