Mojave Desert birds crashed over the last century due to climate change

More than 100 years ago, biologists conducted a thorough survey of birds in the Mojave Desert. A recent resurvey shows that the species richness of the desert habitat has dropped by 43 percent over the past century, on average, at the sites revisited. The main environmental change correlated with bird decline was a decrease in rainfall caused by climate change, which suggests that temporary sources of water might help prevent further decline.

Blood Moon dazzles star gazers in longest lunar eclipse of 21st century

Blood Moon dazzles star gazers in longest lunar eclipse of 21st centuryBy Baz Ratner and Cecilie Kallestrup NAIROBI (Reuters) – A blood-red moon dazzled star gazers across much of the world on Friday when it moved into Earth’s shadow for the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st Century. The total eclipse lasted 1 hour, 42 minutes and 57 seconds, though a partial eclipse preceded and follows, meaning the moon will spend a total of nearly 4 hours in the Earth’s umbral shadow, according to NASA. The eclipse will not be visible from North America or most of the Pacific.

Researchers have been exploring how ocean energy in Ireland has evolved during the last century. The results reveal an increase of up to 40%, which directly affects the output of the converters.
