Mount Everest - Himalayas Is Moving Northward Due To Pressure From Tectonic Lift

Himalayas Is Moving Northward Due To Pressure From Tectonic Lift

A canyon in the eastern part of the Himalayas is moving slowly northward due to pressure from tectonic lift. Previously, scientists believed that erosion was the main driver of the migration. But with a cutting-edge mineral-dating technique called optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) thermochronometry, they were able to confirm that it was due to tectonic shifting.

NASA Declares May 2016 As Earth’s Hottest

Our climate is changing rapidly, and May 2016 just managed to beat global temperature records yet again. In another words, Earth was warmer in May 2016 than any other May - making it the 13th consecutive record-breaking month. The heat, as NASA puts it, has been especially pronounced in the Arctic and because of that there is a very early onset of the annual melting of Arctic sea ice and the Greenland ice sheet.

Mini Ice Age Expected To Take Place In 2030

A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle has predicted irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat. This model, which has made the most accurate prediction ever, suggests that the solar activity will drop by 60 percent during the 2030s, which means in 15 years, Earth could start experiencing mini ice age again, or likely sink into it.
