The unique natural complexes of South Africa could die from climate change

These unique nature of South Africa, as the Kruger National Park (Kruger National Park), the penguin colony at the Cape of Good Hope and blooming desert Karoo (Karoo), may die because of global climate change. This writes the Associated Press on the eve of the international climate summit which opens in Durban, South Africa, next week.

Kruger National Park is already reduced the number of zebra and antelope, wildebeest, because their pastures are overgrown with bushes. In the desert Karoo marked mass death of unique plants that are found nowhere else in the world, and which cover the ground carpet of flowers in the rainy season. As for the Penguins, their northern colony on the famous cape already ceased to exist, while the south of flightless birds survived, but they draw back is nowhere: behind the ocean.

Scientists have unanimously declared that the cause of all this is global climate change. Guy Midgley (Guy Midgley) chief climatologist at the National Biodiversity Institute of South Africa (South African National Biodiversity Institute), said that decades of observations for climate, flora and fauna, and experiments have allowed scientists to "weave a carpet of change." Of course, the nature to change, but the current pace of the process, and its dangerous trend, beyond doubt that human activity is to blame.

Ways out of this situation, the powers that be found at the international climate summit, which opens next week in South Africa in Durban. Talk about what is in spite of all prior efforts, global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) in 2010 rose sharply. Basically this is the gas accumulates in the atmosphere leads to the greenhouse effect and global climate change. The largest sources of CO2 are industries of China and India — countries that do not assume any obligations to limit emissions.

Meanwhile, other countries have already started to eat all the "charms" of global warming — such as Australia — does raise the alarm and call for immediate action to save the climate.
