Study: Earth at Its Warmest in 120,000 Years

Earth warmest in 120,000 yearsA new study paints a picture of an Earth that is warmer than it has been in about 120,000 years, and is locked into eventually hitting its hottest mark in more than 2 million years.

As part of her doctoral dissertation at Stanford University, Carolyn Snyder , now a climate policy official at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, created a continuous 2 million year temperature record, much longer than a previous 22,000 year record. Snyder's temperature reconstruction, published Monday in the journal Nature , doesn't estimate temperature for a single year, but averages 5,000-year time periods going back a couple million years.

US and China ratify Paris climate deal

US and China sign climate dealThe two largest contributors to global carbon emissions, China and the United States, have ratified the hallmark Paris agreement to battle climate change.

The countries' ratification could help put the pact into force before the end of the year.

President Xi Jinping of China an US President Barack Obama called Saturday's announcement a milestone. Obama said the climate deal is "the moment we finally decided to save our planet".

NASA: Earth Warming at a Pace ‘Unprecedented in 1,000 Years’

NASA; earth warming The planet is warming at a pace not experienced within the past 1,000 years, at least, making it “very unlikely” that the world will stay within a crucial temperature limit agreed by nations just last year, according to Nasa’s top climate scientist.

This year has already seen scorching heat around the world, with the average global temperature peaking at 1.38C above levels experienced in the 19th century, perilously close to the 1.5C limit agreed in the landmark Paris climate accord. July was the warmest month since modern record keeping began in 1880, with each month since October 2015 setting a new high mark for heat.

EPA links oil and gas drilling to Texas quakes

Texasa quakes linked to frackingFederal regulators have tied a string of earthquakes in north Texas to oil and gas drilling operations in the state.

An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report filed with the Texas Railroad Commission this month concluded that the frequency of earthquakes in the state correlates to the number and location of injection or disposal wells for hydraulic fracturing wastewater there.

Fracking Update: 3 tremors in 24 hours near Oklahoma shale country

Oklahoma tremorsThree minor seismic events were recorded near the shale reserve areas in Oklahoma in the past 24 hours, data for the U.S. Geological Survey show.

USGS data show the strongest of the three seismic events was a magnitude-2.9 tremor recorded shortly after midnight in southern Kansas, a few miles from the state border with Oklahoma. A magnitude-2.5 event was recorded in Fairview, Okla., early Sunday afternoon.

Fracking wells may increase asthma attacks, study says

Fracking increases asthmaEver wondered if your asthma attacks can be tied to the fracking wells near your house? You are probably right.

Asthma patients are 1.5 to four times more likely to have asthma attacks if they live near bigger or a larger number of unconventional natural gas development wells, according to a study published Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine.

High Levels of Toxins Found in Bodies of People Living Near Fracking Sites

Toxins found in bodies near fracking sitesMany of the toxic chemicals escaping from fracking and natural gas processing sites and storage facilities may be present in much higher concentrations in the bodies of people living or working near such sites, new research has shown.

In a first-of-its-kind study combining air-monitoring methods with new biomonitoring techniques, researchers detected volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from natural gas operations in Pavillion, Wyoming in the bodies of nearby residents at levels that were as much as 10 times that of the national averages.
