Researchers Expect Sea Levels Will Rise 2 Feet Within 70 Years And 8 Feet By 2200

Researchers Expect Sea Levels Will Rise 2 Feet Within 70 Years And 8 Feet By 2200

Global warming is increasing at an alarming rate. Earlier we reported that temperature was gradually increasing at Central West Antarctica. We also reported that due to tremendous increase of global warming, glacial ice that formed over 1,600 years has melted in 25 years. Considering the facts, a new study says that sea levels will rise 2 feet within the next 70 years and 8 feet by 2200.

Scientists Convert Human Stem Cells Into Functional Lung Cells

Scientists Convert Human Stem Cells Into Functional Lung Cells

Lung transplant recipients have a relatively low 10 year survival rate of about 28% while cellular rejection of the donor organ occurs about 90% of the time, which brings additional obstacles for the patient and doctors. Well, this might be about to change as scientists from the Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have converted human stem cells into functional lung cells.
