Yahoo News explains: What's the other cause impacting global warming?

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.

Couple’s sexless marriage is ‘weird, weird, weird’ says Yahoo Newsroom

Couple’s sexless marriage is ‘weird, weird, weird’ says Yahoo Newsroom“People can do what they want. But the marriage is a joke.” “Huh? Am I missing something here?” Two friends of Tiffany Trump’s are in the spotlight after exchanging “unconditional, unconventional” vows for a sexless marriage. The story jumped to the “top-trending” category on Yahoo Newsroom, sparking thousands of skeptical comments.
New York socialites Quentin Esme Brown and Peter Cary Peterson tied the knot in Las Vegas (where first daughter Tiffany served as flower girl). On social media, the best friends turned husband and wife made clear that theirs will be a sexless, open marriage. Brown explained on Instagram, “Peter and I are not romantically involved — in fact we are still dating others and will continue to seek love in all forms — we are just each other’s hearts and wish to begin our journey towards evolution.” Their nontraditional relationship status raised one question over and over in the Yahoo comments: Why bother? One especially suspicious reader guessed that it’s a “business partnership and fraud.”

House of horrors for 13 siblings: Yahoo Newsroom reacts

House of horrors for 13 siblings: Yahoo Newsroom reacts“No punishment in the world will make up for the damage done to these children.” “This sounds like something out of a horror movie.” The chilling details of 13 siblings who suffered alleged torture in their home and the news of their parents’ arrest have rattled Yahoo Newsroom and the world.
An investigation is underway after 13 siblings — ages 2 to 29 — were allegedly held captive in their Perris, Calif. home by parents David Allen and Louisa Anna Turpin. According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, some were "shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks," malnourished and abused. One of the siblings, a 17-year-old girl so frail that officials say she looked 10 years old, escaped to lead authorities to a home where they were discovered living in foul-smelling conditions. Among the many questions, some perhaps never to be answered: How could this go undetected for so long? One reader writes, “This is why we need nosey neighbors, people paying attention to their neighborhood.”

American families embracing pot as never before, Yahoo News/Marist Poll findsAn exclusive new Yahoo News/Marist Poll shows that as the legal landscape evolves — and as social attitudes evolve along with it — more and more Americans are overcoming old taboos and accepting marijuana into their family lives.

Sixty percent of parents who use marijuana at least once or twice a year say their children are aware that they use it, and a majority (54 percent) of them have spoken directly to their kids about their use.
