Byton's infotainment system will feature Garmin and ViacomCBS

  Byton's infotainment system will feature Garmin and ViacomCBS Since its inception, Byton has been touting its in-car experience as driver-centric. So while the company's electric cars aren't on the road yet, it's back at CES to show off the latest iteration of what it'll be like to sit in their vehicle when it launches in China in mid-2020. The latest user-experience update is a cleaner, more robust version of a system we've already seen. But the news is really that the company announced that it would be partnering with Garmin for its wellness feature. Garmin is one of the biggest names in the health field, snagging them as a partner was smart.

The temperatures in these regions have the potential to exceed 50 °C (122 °F) during the hottest seasons. Satellite analyses made on 10 August 2010 pointed to a temperature of −93.2 °C (−135.8 °F) near Dome F in Queen Maud "NOAA: Earth Had Its Third Warmest Year on Record in 2017".

Sadly, one change that has been affecting the world year on year is the climate. And a new report In fact, the report stated that concentrations of greenhouse gases reached record levels just last And in 2019, “the global mean sea level reached its highest value since the beginning of the high-precision

WASHINGTON (AP) — The decade that just ended was by far the hottest ever measured on Earth, capped off by the second-warmest year on record, two U.S. agencies reported Wednesday. And scientists said they see no end to the way man-made climate change keeps shattering records.

“This is real. This is happening,” Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said at the close of a decade plagued by raging wildfires, melting ice and extreme weather that researchers have repeatedly tied to human activity.

Intense ‘firestorms’ forming from Australia’s deadly wildfires

  Intense ‘firestorms’ forming from Australia’s deadly wildfires Apocalyptic in appearance, thunderstorms generated by wildfires generate lightning and produce winds that can carry dangerous embers for miles.On December 30, 2019, wildfires raged under plumes of smoke in Bairnsdale, Australia. Thousands of tourists fled Australia's wildfire-ravaged eastern coast ahead of worsening conditions.

Two-thirds of the warming has occurred since 1975, at a rate of roughly 0.15-0.20°C per decade . But why should we care about one degree of warming? In the past, a one- to two-degree drop was all it took to plunge the Earth into the Little Ice Age. A five-degree drop was enough to bury a large part of

Greenhouse gases have continued to increase and reached record highs in 2019, helping make this year one of the hottest on record . The report has been released at this year's UN climate change conference in Madrid, where it was also revealed each decade since the 1980 s has been warmer

The 2010s averaged 58.4 degrees Fahrenheit (14.7 degrees Celsius) worldwide, or 1.4 degrees (0.8 C) higher than the 20th century average and more than one-third of a degree (one-fifth of a degree C) warmer than the previous decade, which had been the hottest on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The decade had eight of the 10 hottest years on record. The only other years in the top 10 were 2005 and 1998.

NASA and NOAA also calculated that 2019 was the second-hottest year in the 140 years of record-keeping. Five other global teams of monitoring scientists agreed, based on temperature readings taken on Earth's surface, while various satellite-based measurements said it was anywhere from the hottest year on record to the third-hottest.

Australian Hunters to Kill 10,000 Feral Camels from Helicopters Amid Worsening Drought

  Australian Hunters to Kill 10,000 Feral Camels from Helicopters Amid Worsening Drought The dry season is turning the pest creatures into dangerous competitors for limited water supplies.More than 1 million of the humped creatures wander Australia. They aren't from the continent, but arrived in the 1840s on ships — brought in as an ideal means of transport for the country's vast deserts. Nearly 200 years later, they're mostly feral pests, destroying habitats and competing with humans and native species for resources, according to Earther. And amid the worst drought and fire season in national memory, Australia wants to kill 10,000 of them from helicopters.

The Earth just had its warmest September on record , tying a mark set in 2016, according to data released Friday by the Copernicus Climate Change Service Much below average temperatures were only recorded in a few regions, including southwestern Russia and parts of Antarctica," the group said.

The instrumental temperature record provides the temperature of Earth ' s climate system from the historical network of in situ measurements of surface air temperatures and ocean surface temperatures.

Several scientists said the coming years will be even hotter, knocking these years out of the record books.

“If you think you've heard this story before, you haven't seen anything yet. This is going to be part of what we see every year until we stabilize greenhouse gases” from the burning of coal, oil and gas, said Schmidt, who was at the American Meteorological Society convention in Boston, where last weekend it was so warm he went jogging in shorts and a T-shirt. Boston had its hottest January day on Sunday, at 74 degrees, which is 2 degrees warmer than the old record.

The Billboard Hot 100 is the music industry standard record chart in the United States for songs, published weekly by Billboard magazine.

“It’s sobering to think that we might be breaking global temperature records in quick succession,” said Georgia Tech climate scientist Kim Cobb. “2020 is off to a horrifying climate start, and I fear what the rest of the year will bring to our doorsteps.”

NASA's Schmidt said that overall, Earth is now about 1.2 degrees C (nearly 2.2 F) hotter since the beginning of the industrial age, a number that is important because in 2015 global leaders adopted a goal of preventing 1.5 C (2.7 F) of warming since the rise of big industry in the mid- to late 1800s. He said that shows the global goal can’t be achieved. (NOAA and the World Meteorological Organization put the warming since the dawn of industry slightly lower.)

“We have strong human-induced global warming,” said Friederike Otto, a climate scientist at the University of Oxford. “What we observe here is exactly what our physical understanding tells us to expect and there is no other explanation.”

"The amount of heat we have put in the world' s oceans in the past 25 years equals 3.6 billion Hiroshima atom bomb explosions." The past five years are the five hottest years for the ocean, the study found. As well as the mid-term warming trend, the data showed that the ocean had absorbed 25 Zetta Joules

According to NASA' s Goddard Institute That event could have tapped the brakes on the planet' s warm streak, at least temporarily, but the likelihood of such This may indicate that Earth ' s fever is not breaking, even in the short-term.

Other explanations that rely on natural causes — extra heat from the sun, more reflection of sunlight because of volcanic particles in atmosphere, and just random climate variations — “are all much too small to explain the long-term trend,” Princeton University climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer said.

Scientists said the the decade-long data is more telling than the year-to-year measurements, where natural variations like El Nino, the periodic warming of the Pacific Ocean, come into play.

“Human-caused climate change is responsible for the long-term warming — it’s responsible for why the 2010s were warmer than 2000s, which were warmer than the 1990s, etc.,” Texas A&M University climate scientist Andrew Dessler said in an email. “But humans are not responsible for why 2016 was warmer than 2015 or why 2019 was warmer than 2018.”

NOAA said the average global temperature in 2019 was 58.7 degrees (14.85 C), or just a few hundredths of a degree behind 2016, when the world got extra heat from El Nino. That’s 1.71 degrees (0.95 C) higher than the 20th century average and 2.08 degrees (1.16 C) warmer than the late 19th century.

Australia experienced its hottest decade on record from 2000 to 2009 due to global warming, the nation' s bureau of meteorology said today. The average temperature in Australia over the past 10 years was 0.48 degrees Celsius above the 1961-1990 average, the Bureau of Meteorology said in its

The last year Earth was cooler than the 20th century average was 1976, before Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, French President Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump Jr. were born.

If you want to know what this means for people and the world, just look at wildfire-stricken Australia, Schmidt and others said.

Global warming is already being seen in heat waves, ice sheet melt, more wildfires, stronger storms, flood-inducing downpours and accelerating sea level rise, said Hans-Otto Portner, who heads the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change team that looks at the impact of climate change.

Dr. Renee Salas, a Boston emergency room physician and Harvard professor who studies climate change’s effects on health, said “these temperatures are not just statistics but have names and stories,” mentioning a construction worker and an elderly man with no air conditioning who were her patients this summer.

“The planet has a fever," Salas said, "and that’s its symptom.”
