2010年的六月是纪录上最热的一个月

地球哪一端?
全球

有啥特别?
根据美国国家海洋和大气局的纪录,综合了全球海洋和陆地的温度,2010年的6月是最热的一个月。

June 2010 Was Hottest on Record

Where?

What is it so special?
NOAA has released their global temperature data for June 2010 confirming that the month was the warmest on record, judged by combined global and ocean surface temperature.

成千的鲨鱼被屠宰,只为了鱼翅。。

发生了什么事?
日“鱼翅工厂”惨状曝光 千只鲨鱼割鳍后遭弃

地球哪一端?
日本

有啥特别?
日本的一家鱼工厂被发现堆放了上千只的废弃的鲨鱼尸体.这些鲨鱼只被取了鳍,然后就被扔在一边。

据称,该工厂地面鲜血横流,臭气熏天。当地人取鲨鱼鳍只是为了做鱼翅汤。媒体摄影师拍下了这让人震惊的图片,并表示:“这里就像地狱一样,你无法想象他们这么做只是为了一碗碗鱼翅汤。”

海洋中的鲨鱼数量正在减少,但是为了满足一些人对鱼翅汤的渴望,这种残忍的杀戮仍在继续。该工厂的厂长不仅没有反省自己的行为,反而向游人炫耀堆积如山的鲨鱼尸体。

据悉,目前海洋中双髻鲨的数量已经下降了98%,但每年仍有大约7300万只鲨鱼被捕捞取鳍,做成鱼翅汤,然后被遗弃。

请停止食用鱼翅

What had happened?
Dead in their hundreds on the dock, the sharks who have been slaughtered so Japan can use their fins for soup

Where?
Japan

What is it so special?
They are then sent by the tonne to cities such as Hong Kong and Shanghai – where the ‘premium’ meat is turned in to a delicacy. Chinese will pay higher prices for the fins – but much of this haul will go to local destinations.

The slaughter occurs on an industrial scale.

Meanwhile, the world’s shark populations are decreasing faster than BP’s share price after the oil spill.

The population of the scalloped hammerhead shark alone is down 98 per cent.

发生了什么事?
被漏油事件杀害的3000 只鸟

地球哪一端?
墨西哥湾

有啥特别?
虽然漏油事件的抢救工作已经告一段落,但是其遗留下来的祸害却是巨大无比的,首当其冲的就是野生动物,包括海鸟和海龟。最新的报告披露,已有将近3000只海鸟在这次的漏油事件里被这些黑油杀害了。

漏油事件受害者之一

What had happened?
3,000 Birds Now Killed or Covered by Oil in the Gulf

Where?
Mexico Gulf

What is it so special?
With the tentatively good news breaking that the oil flow has been halted — according to BP at least — it may be time to return the focus to the devastation the spill has wrought. A good place as any to start is with the wildlife. The birds and sea turtles that have fallen victim to the oil slick are among the most public faces of the BP spill’s destruction. And recent numbers have revealed that at least 3,000 birds have been covered or killed by the crude.

北极洋的冰块流失加速了极地暖化

北极洋冰帽的消失会加速全球暖化已是众所周知的事实。当北极冰块融化的时候,地表便减少了可以反射热能的区域,更多来自太阳的热能都被周围的海水吸收了,从而加速地球极区的暖化。

不同的地球表面所能反射来自太阳的热能

根据最新欧洲中期天气预报中心的观测数据,从两张同月份但相隔20年的照片里,他们发现了极地暖化的速度远远超过了全球暖化的速度。

从1989至今,北极区平均温度上升了超过2度,比起全球的平均0.5度是有过之而无不及。

Arctic Sea Ice Loss Confirmed As Main Cause of Faster Polar Warming

It’s long been known that melting Arctic ice could help speed global warming. As the ice melts, surface reflectivity changes, more heat is absorbed than reflected, more warming.

Using the most recent observational data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting, Screen and co-author Ian Simmonds uncovered a nearly perfect season-by-season match during the 20-year period analysed between surface warming trends and reductions in sea ice cover.

The findings show that the main driver of so-called “polar amplification” — warming in excess of the global average — is shrinking ice cover, and not increased cloudiness or changes in ocean and atmospheric circulation, as others have argued.

Since 1989, the Arctic has warmed over 2°C, compared to a global average of 0.5°C.

全世界的水源,只有0.08%到达水龙头

这个地球的表面大部分都被海洋、河流和湖泊为覆盖,但是究竟有多少是可以最后到达我们的水龙头以供给我们食用?只有0.08%!

88%:在所有因为痢疾而导致的死亡的人数中,有多达88%是因为引用不安全水源、不够适用于卫生的水和不够卫生设施。如果把百分比转换成数目字,那么每年就将近有一百五十到一百九十万五岁以下的孩童死于痢疾,相等于每天有将近4000位儿童丧命!

Of All The Water in the World, Just 0.08% Makes It To Our Faucets

The world is covered in oceans, rivers and lakes, but when we look at how much actually makes it to our faucets, it only amounts to around 0.08%.

88%: Number of deaths from diarrhea are caused from unsafe drinking water, inadequate availability of water for hygiene, and lack of access to sanitation; this translates to more than 1.5 million of the 1.9 million children under five who perish from diarrhea each year. This amounts to 18% of all under-five deaths and means that more than 4,000 children are dying every day as a result of diarrhoeal diseases.
