A study based on satellite measurements of ice loss from Greenland and the shape of the ice cap from 2000 to 2019 allows scientists to understand how the climate crisis is pushing the ice sheet out of equilibrium with snowfall and ice loss. I was able to calculate how much it pushed up.
They find that after Greenland’s 110 trillion tonnes of ice cap melts, a minimum sea level rise of 10.6 inches is inevitable regardless of actions taken to limit carbon emissions.The trajectory of environmental destruction continues. As a result, sea level rise of several meters is likely to occur.
Dr. William Colgan of the National Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland said, “The 27cm minimum is the sea-level rise deficit that has occurred so far and will pay off for whatever we do going forward.” Geus). “Whether it’s 100 or 150 years from now, it’s coming.
This number could more than double during this century. Damien Carrington writes that the 27cm estimate is a minimum, as it only takes into account global warming so far, but experts say there is “still room to minimize damage.” There are many,” he said.
More than 40% of Americans believe civil war is likely within 10 years
More than two-fifths of respondents to the new survey say there is at least some chance of civil war in the United States in the next decade. In a poll by YouGov and The Economist, participants were asked:
43% of all US citizens say civil war is likely to occur, at least to some extent. Among strong Democrats and independents, that percentage was 40%. But 54% of his strong Republican supporters said there was at least some chance of civil war.
Most experts believe that a full-scale armed conflict like the American Civil War of 1861-1865 remains unlikely. But many fear a jagged political divide and an increase in outright political violence.

Stats of the day: Drinking tea may lower risk of death
One study found that those who drank two or more cups of tea each day had a 9% to 13% lower risk of death than those who did not drink tea. However, the study could not definitively attribute tea to the cause of lower mortality among tea drinkers. This could not be ruled out as being due to other health factors associated with tea consumption.
Fernando Rodriguez Alterejo, professor of preventive medicine and public health at the Autonomous University of Madrid, said: In particular, mortality from cardiovascular disease over his decade in the middle-aged, predominantly Caucasian adult general population. “

Finally: Male dolphins form lifelong bonds and help find mates
A study confirming previously unproven behavior among animals has found that dolphins form long-term friendships and cooperate between factions to find mates and fend off competitors.University of Massachusetts Dr. Richard Connor, a behavioral ecologist at Dartmouth and one of the first authors of the paper, said:
Sofia Quaglia writes that the findings appear to support the “social brain” hypothesis. In other words, mammalian brains evolved to grow in size for social interactions and social tracking of networks. Humans and dolphins are her two animals with the largest brains compared to body size. “It’s no coincidence,” Conner said. “You could say that dolphins and humans converged in the evolution of an alliance between the groups. It’s an incredibly complex social system…and we’re so different from dolphins that it’s amazing.” is.”
