Science - Effects of Global Warming

Vol. 168 of Science News reports that June 2003 saw the highest temperatures Switzerland had experienced in 250 years. The following August, temperatures soared to 104F in France, and remained high for weeks. According to scientists, some 30,000 Europeans died in that heat wave.

Climate research following that episode has shown that plants in the region had one-third less green foliage in the following year, compared to the average in the three previous years. Scientists calculate that as a result, European plants probably absorbed some 1.8 billion metric tons less carbon dioxide than they had in previous years.

Yet another consequence of global warming.
