A researcher is pictured here measuring tree diameters in Tambopata National Park, Peru, soon after the 2010 drought The 2005 drought in the Amazon was described as a 'once a century' event - but five years later an even worse one followed raising concerns about the region's capacity to continue soaking up carbon dioxide.
Both droughts were associated with unusually warm seas in the Atlantic Ocean off the Brazilian coast - the suspected result of manmade emissions - and suggesting drought years in the Amazon could become more common.
Worsening droughts in the Amazon - dubbed the 'lungs of the world' - are speeding up climate change, scientists have warned.

Amazon also opted to purchase the portion of French package-delivery company Colis Prive it didn't already own and now offers an Uber-like service called Flex, which hires regular folks to deliver packages in 14 US markets.
"Amazon is effectively making its own carrier in the US," said Jarrett Streebin, CEO of Easy Post, which offers e-commerce shipping services.
On Thursday, Amazon posted weaker-than-expected earnings for its all-important holiday quarter, which drove down its stock by more than 13 percent after hours.Researchers found that while the rate of photosynthesis was constant among trees on plots unaffected by drought, rates on the six drought-affected plots dropped significantly - as compared with before the 2010 drought.Professor Yadvinder Malhi added: 'These plots are our canaries in the climate change coal mine."They're trying to get as many people to buy as much as they can online." Amazon has been able to hook you with Prime, its -a-year membership service that offers two-day deliveries at no additional fees.While Prime has been a success, helping the company grow faster than the broader e-commerce market, it's also resulted in big shipping costs that the annual fees don't fully cover.Last month, it unveiled a fleet of thousands of Amazon-branded truck trailers, which it will use to move its inventory among its warehouses.Beyond that, Amazon has reportedly been testing plans to lease 20 Boeing cargo jets, which could help it avoid storing the same inventory in multiple locations around the US to guarantee its two-day deliveries.The company has created pickup and return locations in office buildings and retail stores through its Amazon Locker program.It's also been expanding its staffed pickup centers at universities, coming to two more schools this year.Męczy Cię nieustanne przeszukiwanie tysięcy profili na portalach randkowych, w nadzieji, że znajdziesz tego ~EOL~wymarzonego motocklistę lub motocyklistkę?
