Yahoo News explains: What's the other cause impacting global warming?The authors of the study predict a 58 percent chance that the next few years will be “anomalously warm,” with a 69 percent chance that earth’s oceans will be too. The study found that that warming trend is not just the result of a steady increase in human-made climate change driven by emissions of greenhouse gases. The study used data from 10 climate-change models and found that natural variabilities were the cause of a global warming “hiatus” in the early 2000s.

Please stop calling us Mormons, says world's leading Mormon

Please stop calling us Mormons, says world's leading Mormon“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” doesn’t exactly roll of the tongue, which is probably why both followers of the church and the general public have tended to refer to the religion as Mormonism, after the group’s most holy text, the Book of Mormon. Russell M Nelson, president of the church and the world’s most senior member, says this cannot go on. In a statement released on Friday, he demanded that only the church’s full name be used from now on.

In return, ConocoPhillips said it agreed to halt the seizure of PDVSA's oil and assets in the Caribbean -- which it took over after Caracas failed to honor an April 25 ruling by an international arbitrator.

Arctic’s strongest sea ice breaks up for first time   

Arctic’s strongest sea ice breaks up for first time   The thickest sea ice in the Arctic has started to break up, opening waters north of Greenland that are normally frozen, experts have warned. One meteorologist described the phenomenon - recorded for the first time this year - as “scary”. Scientists said it could prove catastrophic for polar bears and seals, threatening their survival. The sea off the north coast of Greenland had long been known as “the last ice area” because it was expected to be the last place to remain frozen, given it had the oldest and thickest ice. Others said it could force scientists to revise their theories about which part of the Arctic will withstand global warming the longest. The sea off the north coast of Greenland had long been known as “the last ice area” because it was expected to be the last place to remain frozen, given it had the oldest and thickest ice. But now scientists are warning that the ice has broken up twice this year, due to warm winds and heatwaves in the northern hemisphere. The thick old sea ice will have been pushed away from the coast, to an area where it will melt more easilyThomas Lavergne, Norwegian Meteorological Institute The changes could force scientists to revise their theories about which part of the Arctic will withstand global warming the longest. Professor Peter Wadhams, who heads the Polar Ocean Physics Group at Cambridge University, said the trend would also have “serious” consequences for wildlife - and could prove catastrophic for polar bears and seals. “The north coast of Greenland, with its very steep cliffs, is a denning area for polar bears,” Prof Wadhams said. “They dig holes in the snow and come out in the spring and go hunting. But if the pack ice has moved offshore they come out hibernation and are left without an area to hunt. “They can’t swim very far. If this becomes a permanent feature with ice away from the coast, polar bears won’t have any ice to hunt on. You would lose the polar bear habitat,” he told The Independent. Ruth Mottram of the Danish Meteorological Institute said: “Almost all of the ice to the north of Greenland is quite shattered and broken up and therefore more mobile.” “Open water off the north coast of Greenland is unusual. This area has often been called ‘the last ice area’ as it has been suggested that the last perennial sea ice in the Arctic will occur here. The events of the last week suggest that, actually, the last ice area may be further west.” How fast is the Arctic ice melting? | Meet the British scientist who risked polar bear attacks and plagues of mosquitoes to find out Walt Meier, a senior research scientist at the US National Snow and Ice Data Center, said: “The ice there has nowhere else to go so it piles up. On average, it’s over four metres thick and can be piled up into ridges 20 metres thick or more. This thick, compacted ice is generally not easily moved around. “However, that was not the case this past winter (in February and March) and now. The ice is being pushed away from the coast by the winds.” Thomas Lavergne, a scientist at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, described satellite pictures of blue water penetrating white ice as “scary”. Even if the water closes over in a few days, the harm will be done, he told The Guardian. “The thick old sea ice will have been pushed away from the coast, to an area where it will melt more easily.”

Simulation report: Elon Musk unfollowed Grimes on Twitter

Simulation report: Elon Musk unfollowed Grimes on TwitterIt appears that Elon Musk no longer follows Grimes on Twitter. Time to freak out! The Tesla CEO, who's been in headlines lately for stuff like tweeting himself into a probable SEC investigation and calling a hero a "pedophile," unfollowed his girlfriend on Sunday, bringing the number of women he follows down to three.  SEE ALSO: Elon Musk's muskiest moments of 2018, so far Of course, breakup rumors are now flying, but Musk's behavior on the platform has been so erratic lately that this surprise unfollow could mean nothing. It could mean everything. It could mean that he was looking at Grimes's profile fondly one night while he was definitely not hiding from Azealia Banks and accidentally hit the "unfollow" button.  Who knows? We've reached out to representation for Grimes and Tesla, and will update should we hear back. We hope to see "anti-imperialist" back in Grimes's Twitter bio soon. UPDATE: Aug. 20, 2018, 12:02 p.m. A spokesman for Musk declined to comment. UPDATE: Aug. 21, 2018, 3:46 p.m. Musk deleted his Instagram account late Monday, several hours after Azealia Banks posted several Stories telling Musk "I need my phone back now" and asking him to contact her. Musk told Gizmodo he deleted the account because he "didn't like it."  WATCH: Yes, Elon Musk and Grimes are dating and people think it's a simulation

Afghanistan waits for Taliban response to truce offer

Afghanistan waits for Taliban response to truce offerAfghanistan was waiting Monday for a Taliban response to President Ashraf Ghani's suggestion of a three-month ceasefire, an offer welcomed by the United States and NATO after 17 years of war. Ghani unveiled the government’s latest gambit during an Independence Day address late Sunday, saying security forces would observe the truce beginning this week -- but only if the Taliban reciprocated. The move followed an extraordinarily violent week in Afghanistan that saw that Taliban storm the provincial capital of Ghazni -- just a two hour drive from Kabul -- and press the fight against security forces across the country, resulting in hundreds of deaths.

Flash flood kills 10 hikers in Italian mountain gorge as rescuers say it hit like &apos;a tsunami&apos;

Flash flood kills 10 hikers in Italian mountain gorge as rescuers say it hit like 'a tsunami'An eight-year-old girl survived a devastating flash flood in a canyon in southern Italy but was found next to a body that rescuers believe may be one of her parents. The girl, named as Chiara, was semi-conscious, covered in thick mud and suffering from hypothermia when she was found in the gorge in Calabria after it was hit by a “tsunami” of muddy water following a severe storm. The seven-mile-long canyon, located in Pollino national park, has 2,300ft-high sheer rock walls which in some places are just 13ft apart. At least two groups of hikers were caught up in the disaster on Monday. While some were able to scramble to higher ground, others were engulfed by the flash flood and drowned. Ten people were killed, with some bodies washed up to three miles downstream by the force of the torrent. Eleven people were injured, five of them seriously. Four children lost either one or both of their parents.

We found her next to a corpse and from what we know, her parents are almost certainly among the victims,” said Pasquale Gagliardi, a doctor with the local helicopter rescue service.

Antonio De Rasis, 32, was guiding hikers through the gorge when it was hit by the 8ft-high wall of water. “With his experience, he would definitely have tried to help the group as much as possible,” said Antonio Carlomagno, the mayor of the town where Mr De Rasis came from. The flash flood also claimed the lives of two models, Miriam Mezzolla, 27, and Claudia Giampietro, 31, who were said to be inseparable and shared a passion for burlesque dancing. Rescuers work in the gorge of the Raganello stream in Civita Credit: WENN.com  An investigation has been launched into the disaster, with questions asked about why people were allowed into the gorge when bad weather was forecast. “It was a real tsunami. These are events that happen once in a lifetime,” said Giacomo Zanfei, a senior official with the mountain rescue service. Italy has experienced strange weather this summer, with torrid heat building up in the mornings and then giving way to thunder, lightning and torrential rain.

The canyoning disaster comes just a week after the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa, which killed 43 people. Raganello gorges in Pollino National Park, Calabria Credit: DEA/V. GIANNELLA  "Italy is tired of crying for the dead. Enough," said Sergio Costa, the environment minister, during a visit to the scene. "If what happened is the result of negligence, sloppiness or a lack of awareness of the risks, we are facing a serious situation that we need to get to the bottom of." “The whole country is deeply saddened by this new tragedy, which has caused many deaths and injuries in Pollino national park,” said Sergio Mattarella, Italy’s president.

Tears as North and South Koreans meet after decades

Tears as North and South Koreans meet after decadesWith tears and cries, dozens of elderly and frail South and North Korean family members met on Monday for the first time since the peninsula and their relationships were torn apart by war nearly 70 years ago. Many of the North Korean women were clad in traditional dresses, known as hanbok in the South and joseon-ot in the North, and all had the ubiquitous badges of the North's founder Kim Il Sung or his son and successor Kim Jong Il, while the Southerners wore their best suits. As soon as 99-year-old South Korean Han Shin-ja approached their table, her two daughters -- aged 69 and 72 -- bowed their heads deeply towards her and burst into tears.
