The consequences of global warming turn into apocalypse
In the next few years due to global warming humanity waiting floods
and drought. International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently warned that the effects of these disasters can prove to be the apocalypse, if not taken decisive action. The less people are willing to face the raging elements, the greater the risk can not cope with the disaster of global proportions.
This week in Kampala, Uganda, is meeting the IPCC, which resulted in a Friday to be released next, fifth assessment report on climate change. It will contain both an analysis of the situation and a description of possible measures to prevent the devastating effects of extreme weather. Experts argue that the large number of casualties can be avoided will be developed a clear plan of joint actions, reports AFP. But while the new humanity is not ready for trouble.
Especially little room for maneuver is in poor countries, so they are the first to face significant challenges to ensure the safety of people and suffer the most severe blow. But the events of August 2003, when Europe 70,000 people died from heat-fetched, or disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina, show that it is not protected and the rich countries.
"The seriousness of the impact of climate change depends not only on the destructive power of disasters themselves, but also on our willingness to meet with them," — said in a brief summary of today, policies. This was told by Will Steffen, head of the Institute for Climate Change at the Australian National University. "Among other things, it contains the key idea of how vulnerable we are," — said he is one of the most important, in his view, sending the report.
Interestingly, the first time in the evaluation report are connected as the climate science and risk management system. Today during the meeting a proposal was expressed professionals from different disciplines to join together to develop programs for adaptation to climate change. Neville Nicholls, a professor of the University of Melbourne, who was responsible for the scientific part of the report, confirmed that the collaboration will make more accurate conclusions, if the experts of various working groups, for example, social scientists and meteorologists work together.
Program to adapt involves early forecasting of threats and methods of obstacles have happened disasters, which in some places are already in use at the local level. For example, large forest plantations in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar help to reduce the destructive force of cyclones caused poteplevshim sea. In the U.S., are experimenting with new types of cultivation of maize, rice and beans, which are more resistant to heat. These varieties could save more than 350 million people from starvation, which will come soon, as the temperature on Earth to rise for another couple of degrees.
Although the 800-page work, which represented the culmination of five years of data collection and analysis, not yet available to read some excerpts from it have already been made public.
So, in early November spread information about what to expect from the nature. Experts see the devastating floods and severe drought. Number of emergency caused by global warming, will increase. Phenomena such as hurricanes, storms and tsunamis, which are now quite rare, by the end of the twenty-first century. will take place in two — three times more often.
The drought is certain it is not established what their scale. Anyway, climatic shock will be so strong that many regions will simply uninhabitable, leading to a global migration: people will be forced to leave the region in which the accommodation will be impossible.
Say which parts of which will be the first from the effects of climate collapse, experts of the Intergovernmental Panel categorically refuse as long as the report is not submitted in full.
