以下の文の和訳をお願いします。 The slowdown is a bit of a mystery to climate scientists. True, the basic theory that predicts a warming of the planet in response to human emissions does not suggest that warming should be smooth and continuous. To the contrary, in a climate system still dominated by natural variability, there is every reason to think the warming will proceed in fits and starts. But given how much is riding on the scientific forecast, the practitioners of climate science would like to understand exactly what is going on. They admit that they do not, even though some potential mechanisms of the slowdown have been suggested. The situation highlights important gaps in our knowledge of the climate system, some of which cannot be closed until we get better measurements from high in space and from deep in the ocean.

以下のとおりお答えします。 気象学者にとって、(温暖化の)減速はちょっとした神秘である。本当のところ、人工的な排出に呼応して地球が暖まると予測する基本的理論でも、温暖化が滑らかで継続的であると示唆しているわけではない。それどころか、自然な変動性によって支配される気候システムでは、温暖化が突発的発現と開始が続行する、と考えるに足る理由がいまだに存在する。 しかし、どのくらい科学的予測に沿っているかを考慮に入れられれば、気候科学の専門家は進行中のことを正確に理解することだろう。彼らは、たとえ減速に関する潜在的なメカニズムが暗示されていても、それが当たらないことを認めている。気候システムと私達の知識の間に重大な乖離があることを、状況そのものが雄弁に示しているのである。宇宙空間や深海から一層詳しい数値を得るまでは、その乖離の幾つかは埋められないのである。 以上、ご回答まで。

    以下の文の和訳をお願いします。 Exactly why the ocean would have started to draw down extra heat in recent years is a mystery, and one we badly need to understand. But the main ideas have to do with possible shifts in winds and currents that are causing surface heat to be pulled down faster than before. The deep-ocean theory is one of a half-dozen explanations that have been proffered for the warming plateau. Perhaps the answer will turn out to be some mix of all of them. And in any event, computer forecasts of climate change suggest that pauses in warming lasting a couple of decades should not surprise us.

    下の文を和訳していただけませんか? The1997 Kyoto Protocol, the first international agreement on global warming, was adopted in Kyoto, Japan. Since Then, scientists have made it clear that global warming cannot be stopped or reversed. We will have to deal with climate change and the resulting problems, such as flooding, rising sea levels, desertification, and gradual changes in food supplies for the rest of our lives. Although global warming cannot be stepped or reversed, scientists think that it can be slowed, that some of its negative effects can be lessened, and that some of its worst effects can be prevented. It will be necessary for all countries to mitigate, in other words, to take steps to make the effects of global warming less severe, and to adapt to changing climate. Four countries have already taken steps to mitigate and adapt.

    以下の文の和訳をお願いします。 As you might imagine, those dismissive of climate-change concerns have made much of this warming plateau. They typically argue that “global warming stopped 15 years ago” or some similar statement, and then assert that this disproves the whole notion that greenhouse gases are causing warming. Rarely do they mention that most of the warmest years in the historical record have occurred recently. Moreover, their claim depends on careful selection of the starting and ending points. The starting point is almost always 1998, a particularly warm year because of a strong El Niño weather pattern.

    People in areas with a relatively cool climate think that they are free from catching malaria. However, recent changes in climate let mosquitoes move into parts of the world that used to be too cold for them to survive. For example, in Papua New Guinea, the higher mountain areas are becoming warmer, and mosquitoes may affect another two million people. As the world becomes warmer, the spread of malaria will be more and more of an urgent global concern.

    Now, here is a crucial piece of background: It turns out we had an earlier plateau in global warming, from roughly the 1950s to the 1970s, and scientists do not fully understand that one either. A lot of evidence suggests that sunlight-blocking pollution from dirty factories may have played a role, as did natural variability in ocean circulation. The pollution was ultimately reduced by stronger clean-air laws in the West. Today, factory pollution from China and other developing countries could be playing a similar role in blocking some sunlight. We will not know for sure until we send up satellites that can make better measurements of particles in the air.

    Dr. Mark Jacobson is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University. He focuses his research on the causes of atmospheric changes and the most feasible ways of reducing global warming. Aircraft vapor trails (also known as “contrails,” as they are trails of condensed vapor) have long been thought of as being harmful as they have a lot of CO2 and are placed in a fragile part of the atmosphere. Dr. Jacobson and his team made a model that used atmospheric traits such as air composition and cloudiness, and aircraft emission characteristics such as soot. They then gathered data for 2004 and 2006, applied the data to the model, and calculated the warming that was due to commercial flights. After that, they made a nine-year simulation of data beginning from 2004, fine-tuned to the atmospheric conditions in different areas of the world. Their model predicts that vapor trails cause 4-8% of the rise in surface temperatures overall, but perhaps 20% of the warming over the Arctic. The study further suggests that reducing the soot in vapor trails will stop the warming effect those trails create. In addition, the soot-free vapor trails may actually promote a slight cooling effect by preventing the formation of heat-trapping cirrus clouds in some areas. But for now, vapor trails seem to be a big problem. よろしくお願いしますorz

    -Ageing- As we've seen, many people live healthy, happy and productive lives for many years after the standard retirement age. But sooner or later, barring accidents, we all become old. It used to be thought that ageing was a steady decline in functioning, with people going inevitably downhill from the age of 50 or so. But now we know that is not so. But now we know that is not so. The research evidence which suggested this pattern of ageing was seriously flawed in the way that it was done, and modern experiences show that ageing occurs quite differently. The general pattern seems to be that we have only a very gradual decline in our older years, and that decline can be slowed down by exercise and activity, but that eventually we reach a period of more rapid physical decline, which rarely lasts for more than about five years. Usually, the person dies at some point during the five-year period. In some old people, that decline is brought about by an accident-a fall or some similar event- which damages them physically but, more importantly, shakes their confidence and makes them feel unable to cope with life as they once did. How inevitable the decline is, once it has begun, is something nobady knows. We do know, though, that even old bodies can respond surprisingly well to exercises were found to be putting on muscle mass as a result - in other words, their muscles were responding to the exercise and becoming stronger. This finding has been repeated a number of times now, and it shows that the saying " it's never too late " may be even truer than we realize. The real danger in ageing, more than any other, seems to be the person's own beliefs about it. Someone who expects to decline and become incapable as they grow older is not likely to face their body or mind with extra challenges. Without exercise, our bodies have no incentive to grow stronger or to maintain their normal levels of strength; so they become weaker. This, to the person who expects to be weak as a result of age, is 'proof 'that they were right, and their belief in inevitable decline is confirmed. But really, it began as a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    以下の文の和訳をお願いします。 Scientists and statisticians reject this sort of selective use of numbers, and when they calculate the long-term temperature trends for the earth, they conclude that it continues to warm through time. Despite the recent lull, it is an open question whether the pace of that warming has undergone any lasting shift. What to make of it all? We certainly cannot conclude, as some people want to, that carbon dioxide is not actually a greenhouse gas. More than a century of research thoroughly disproves that claim.

    以下の英文を和訳していただける方に、 お願いできますでしょうか。 何卒よろしくお願いいたします。 Synastry is a very old form of astrology that comes from ancient Greece and Egypt. The word synastry means " similar star". In the reading I use both some of the traditional chart comparison methods and some new ones. Synastry can be used at any stage in a relationship to cast light on it, not merely at the beginning. It can be used in the middle or even after the end of a relationship. It always has something new and deeper to reveal, some dark corner to illuminate, some new dimension to add to what is already known. There seems to be a very powerful fate between your two charts. I hope you find this reading fascinating. Always I will do my best to guide you and enlighten you and help you find the way to love and the happy future that awaits you. So now to the individual charts. I will begin with the ascendant, as this is the beginning of the two charts. A chart has twelve houses they are like twelve stages of a relationship from beginning to end, until it goes full circle. The first house and Ascendant show the beginnings of the relationship I will begin with the ascendant, as this is the beginning of the two charts. A chart has twelve houses they are like twelve stages of a relationship from beginning to end, until it goes full circle. The first house and Ascendant show the beginnings of the relationship. Planets in his chart that aspect your ascendant have an important influence on your personal life, your self, your mentality, health appearance over a long period of time.
