September 30, 2013. If you do not reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the situation in the world can not change dramatically in favor of people Chianchiullo Antonio writes in an article published in the newspaper La Repubblica.
"In 2100 we will have 9 million on the planet, has dropped significantly due to the onset of the land area of the seas — the article says. — In urban areas exposed to damaging shock waves are piling dams, people persecuted by tropical diseases, will leave millions of plains, flooded with water or subjected to desiccation. " The author explains the basis on which you make a prediction: after six years of research, scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), working under the auspices of the United Nations, confirmed the diagnosis of fever of growing planets and the main causes of the disease, "95%" was named based on the use of fuel carbon technologies, as well as deforestation.
"The report says that over the past 30 years, each subsequent decade has been warmer than the previous one. Everywhere on the planet melting ice. Sea every three years, winning back 1 cm sushi. The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — on the brink of possible: in 10 years we will be outside the security zone "- the author writes.
"According to the IPCC, in spite of everything, there is a way to salvation. According to one of the scenarios, the temperature can rise only by 1 degree, but with the proviso that a few years to decrease CO2 emissions by reducing the double use of oil, coal and methane. Now the emission of greenhouse gases is increasing in line with the worst scenario that threatens to increase in temperature of 5.5 degrees compared to pre-industrial levels, "- says the article.
"If nothing changes in the energy production, life would be very difficult for the billion people who live on the coast. New York should expect dramas like the one that occurred in the past year because of Hurricane Sandy. Most parts of Florida will have to change cars on a canoe — the author continues. — In Bangladesh, the ocean will advance to the biblical exodus. Entire states, such as the Maldives, will disappear from the map. The number of "environmental" refugees by 2050 will reach 200-250 million people. "
"In Australia, heat waves lead to violent waves of drought. The victims of global warming can be attributed Large coral barrier: the rising temperatures and ocean acidification kill him. Scientists came to the conclusion that by the end of the century the conditions of life on the planet will become increasingly severe, "- concludes the reporter.
