Rapid climate warming along with human presence brought end to megafauna’ era

Rapid climate warming along with human presence brought end to megafauna’ era

Humans alone are not responsible for the extinction of megafauna. A study of ancient DNA being led by the University of Adelaide has found that rapid warming has also played a role, in fact a major role.

It was only when the climate warmed long after the humans had already arrived in Patagonia that the megafauna started to die off around 12,300 years back. Once, giant Ice Age species, including elephant-sized sloths and powerful sabre-toothed cats used to roam Patagonia, southern South America, but they became victim to rapid warming and humans.

NOAA: CO2 Levels in Antarctica reach 400 ppm

NOAA: CO2 Levels in Antarctica reach 400 ppm

The levels of carbon dioxide have been rising steadily in almost every region of the globe. With every passing year, these levels are setting new records. Now, South Pole Observatory in Antarctica has revealed that CO2 levels in the atmosphere of South Pole hit 400 parts per million (ppm) for first time in about 4 Million Years.

Climate experts and scientists said that atmospheric carbon dioxide at 400 ppm is worrisome and alarming. They believe such high levels of greenhouse gases could lead to catastrophic effects via climate change.

Australia’s most isolated mammal in Bramble Cay is first to get extinct due to climate change

Australia’s most isolated mammal in Bramble Cay is first to get extinct due to climate change

For the first time ever, extinction of a mammal owing to climate change has been documented. A team of Australian biologists was one to document the mammal Bramble Cay melomys as extinct due to destruction in its habitat brought by climate change. The animal, last seen on a small island off the coast of Papua New Guinea, is now nowhere to be seen. The size and shape of the island have changed drastically, leaving almost no habitat for the mammal to thrive.

Endemic to Great Barrier Reef, this rodent is extinct because of climate change

Human-caused climate change has resulted into extinction of a rodent that lived on a small outcrop in the Great Barrier Reef. It is the first documented extinction of a mammal species owing to climate change that has already taken toll on the world.

The creature known as the Bramble Cay melomys was only found on the Great Barrier Reef. Its habitat was restricted to the northeast Torres Strait, between the Cape York Peninsula in the Australian state of Queensland and also, in the southern shores of Papua New Guinea.

Greenland witnesses hottest June on record

Greenland witnesses hottest June on record

On the basis of preliminary reports, Nuuk’s temperature in June would replace the previous record of 23.2 Celsius. On Thursday, Greenland’s capital’s temperature soared to 24 Celsius. The temperature was the warmest ever recorded in the Arctic country in June.

The previous record was set in Kangerlussuaq on June 15 in 2014. John Cappelen, a senior climatologist at the DMI, was of the view that the warm weather has happened due to winds from the east. When winds come from the east over Nuuk, they blow downhill and bring a rise in temperature.
