This section offers news briefs related to global warming. It was found that in 1996, drivers in Los Angeles, California and New York City alone wasted 600 million gallons of gas sitting in traffic resulting in about 7.5 million tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. A study compared a computer projection of average daily maximum temperatures over the eastern U.S. for July 2085 with actual temperatures in July 1993. Mingyong Glacier on the Tibetan Plateau is warming almost twice as fast as the rest of China.
