Thanks to a poor winter and long-term drought, New Mexico's largest reservoir, Elephant Butte, is now at 3.2 percent capacity.
At 1.5 degrees of warming, compared with pre-industrial levels, as much as 90 per cent of the world's coral reefs will die, and virtually all would be lost if temperatures rose two degrees, or about twice the increase so far.
Established energy policies include the Clean Energy Fund, the Renewable Energy Target, the Emissions Reduction Fund, the Snowy Hydro 2.0 project and a forestry plan to plant one billion trees.
"His disrespect and dismissal of [the IPCC report] is outrageous and risky", Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.), the top Democrat on the House Subcommittee on the Environment, said in a phone interview.
He has long ignored or cast doubt on the scientific community's consensus that human activity is causing risky climate change, and has frequently exhibited a profound misunderstanding of the science behind it. The report also stated that 70-85 percent of energy needs to be supplied by renewable sources by 2050 to stay at the 1.5C target - right now, renewable energy accounts for about 25 percent.
While the U.S.is on target to meet the previous goal, the United Nations is still stressing that more action is needed. Together, higher temperatures and precipitation changes will decrease soil moisture and increase drought. The IPCC report states that the hottest days of summer in mid-latitudes could increase by 4°C under a 2°C global increase, suggesting that heat waves here in southern BC could easily reach 44°C. President Trump has previously mocked the Paris Agreement and is actively trying to withdraw from it.
Hubble Space Telescope sidelined by gyroscope problem
Hubble has six gyroscopes, all of which were replaced by spacewalking astronauts during a servicing mission in May 2009. That would permit one of the two gyros to be turned off, preserving its life until it's needed when the other fails.
Politicians are fond of talking about what kind of future we will leave our grandchildren, but I can now say that having a grandchild sharpens that perspective dramatically. But it wasn't necessarily new.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment. They say it excludes scientists who downplay the effect of burning fossil fuels.
However, the IPCC report's authors said the world would face severe consequences if the great bulk of fossil fuels including coal, oil and gas, weren't left in the ground.
"But it has not been very easy to get support for carbon taxation and things like that because it is asking people in counties like ours to pay now for the benefit of those 50 years in the future as well as other parts of the world".
Decades ago, Congress refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, which represented the first step toward meaningful worldwide action on climate in 1992. The country is also 13th biggest emitter of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide). They serve as an example of the interconnectedness of climate change impacts, a characteristic that creates interacting, compounding negative effects.
The benchmark USA stock index hadn't suffered a five-day losing streak since November 2016, just before the presidential election. Earlier on Wednesday, Sears Holdings plunged on reports that the struggling retailer is preparing to file for bankruptcy.
Judge Kavanaugh and Mr Trump have both denied the allegations against them. "They don't have any facts", she had said. Melania Trump says her husband's politics are hurting her attempts to partner with aid organizations.
The country was still reeling from an natural disaster and tsunami last month that killed more than 2000 people. The quake occurred a few hours before a magnitude 7.0 natural disaster struck Papua New Guinea.
Le sélectionneur de l'équipe de France, Didier Deschamps, mesure la chance qu'il a de pouvoir s'appuyer sur Kylian Mbappé. Et on se réchauffe à ça comme devant un poêle chaud: les belles choses à venir, celles que l'on imagine.
And it comes as the president is on a high wave following a series of wins, including Kavanaugh's confirmation. I knew that a long time ago. "Even the reporter who broke the story said it wasn't me or my staff".
Selon le Giec , "il est probable" que le réchauffement atteigne 1,5 °C entre 2030 et 2052 s'il se poursuit à son rythme actuel. A +2°C ce serait 10 cm de plus, soit jusqu'à 10 millions de personnes supplémentaires affectées.
Today technology stocks saw their worst overall day since 2011 as investors concerns continue to mount over rising interest rates. Higher rates can slow economic growth, erode corporate profits and make investors less willing to pay high prices for stocks.
During the vote, Murkowski withdrew her "no" vote, changing it to "present" instead, effectively pairing it with Republican Sen. That could put the Iowa Republican at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell .

Scientists confirm water ice at moon's poles
In a recent study , researchers reported a new discovery, 50 feet tall "ice spikes" covering parts of the moon's surface. Astronomers didn't know what this meant, only that it suggested something weird was going on in Europa's ice.
