Sea ice in Antarctica shrinks to record low

Antarctica sea ice has shrunk to the smallest annual extent since the U.S. National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC) started keeping record in 1979, preliminary satellite data revealed on Tuesday.

Atmospheric levels of methane are on the rise: researchers warn

Atmospheric levels of methane (CH4), one of the most powerful greenhouse gases, are on the rise, a team of researchers reported in an analysis published in the journal Environmental Research Letters on Sunday.

The researchers warned that methane is surging in the atmosphere after a period of comparative stagnation in the 2000s. They also warned that efforts to tackle global warming and climate change will be undermined unless efforts are made to bring methane under tighter control.

Combination of Human and Computer Intelligence could tackle Problems like Climate Change

Combination of Human and Computer Intelligence could tackle Problems like Climat

Joint efforts by humans and computer intelligence could solve the ‘wicked’ issues of the world. According to scientists, the two working together can possibly deal with issues such as climate change and geopolitical conflict.

There are a number of things in which humans beat machines, ranging from simple things like pattern recognition to creative abstraction. Using computers such cognitive abilities can be combined into multidimensional collaborative networks to accomplish what traditional problem-solving cannot.
