Heavy rains from the Amazon to Australia have curbed sea level rise so far this century by shifting water from the oceans to land, according to a study that rejects theories that the slowdown is tied to a pause in global warming.

Sea level rise has been one of the clearest signs of climate changewater expands as it warms and parts of Greenland and Antarctica are thawing, along with glaciers from the Himalayas to the Alps.

But in a puzzle to climate scientists, the rate slowed to 2.4 millimeters (0.09 inch) a year from 2003 a 2011 from 3.4 mm from 1994-2002, heartening skeptics who doubt that deep cuts are needed in mankind’s rising greenhouse gas emissions.

President Barack Obama requested Friday that Congress authorize $60.4 billion in emergency spending to help the states hit by the supers-storm Sandy in late October. A House Democratic aide told NBC News that theyeven though it’s reasonable, we don’t expect Republicans to just hand it over.

Nita Lowey, D-N.Y. and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., co-chairs of the bipartisan congressional task force on recovering from Tropical Sandy, praised Obama’s request. “While more may be needed in the long term, this robust package is a major first step that we will work to pass as quickly as possible in Congress to help devastated communities, families and businesses.

California ha sido clasificada como uno de los principales Estados en la preparación de cambio climático. California probablemente tendrá más que su cuota de problemas causados por el cambio climático con menguantes suministros de agua y las inundaciones costeras. Sin embargo, California está listo en términos de planificación para los cambios esperados a las sombras y el menor volumen resultante en los embalses de Estados.
Uno de los Estados sólo nueve haber diseñado estrategias integrales e implementado políticas enfrentar escasez de agua que se espera que ocurra si las temperaturas globales aumentan como predijo.

El autor de “Listo o no: Una evaluación del estado climático y la planificación de la preparación de agua”, Ben Chou informes de que muchos Estados aún no han comenzado a tomar medidas, “No hacen nada para reducir la contaminación de carbono o prepararse para los efectos del cambio climático.”

“Diría que California es uno de los principales Estados del país” Chou dijo. La clasificación sigue con Alaska, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nueva York, Oregón, Pennslvania, Washington y Wisconsin como los nueve Estados que figuran en el estudio nacional realizado por el NRDC.

El estudio va decir veinte nueve Estados han hecho poco o nada para preparar agua relacionados con impactos climáticos.

Personas realmente se preocupan por lo que va a ocurrir en el futuro al menos en estos nueve Estados.
