Thirty state of the art IPCC-climate models predict dramatically different climates for the Northern Hemisphere, especially Europe.

A simple blood test to identify patients at risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Researchers from Osaka University, along with international collaborators in Europe, have identified Thrombospondin-2 as a serum biomarker that confirms and stratifies the progressive complications of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. This research may form the basis of a new noninvasive approach that can provide an early warning system for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and advanced fibrosis and may predict progression to cirrhosis, liver failure and even cancer.

Soot from heaters and traffic is not just a local problem

Soot particles from oil and wood heating systems as well as road traffic can pollute the air in Europe on a much larger scale than previously assumed. The evaluation of the sources during a measuring campaign in Germany showed that about half of the soot particles came from the surrounding area and the other half from long distances. This underlines the need to further reduce emissions of soot that is harmful to health and climate.
