Climatic disasters are changing the world

April 15, 2013. In the last decade, natural anomalies, climate change and the dramatic fluctuations in temperature are constant companions of life. Despite the middle of April, in the European part of Russia kept frozen, unprecedented flooding swept large areas of our country. Natural disasters cause significant damage to the population and the state, adversely affect the development of the economy, forcing significantly adjust development plans.

The growth of natural climatic disasters — this is not a random phenomenon. It is estimated that at the present time is the next change of the global historical metric cycle, so humanity is faced with crucial geophysical changes on planet Earth.

According to experts, climatic disasters will lead to changes in the geographic configuration of individual countries, progress in the status of habitats and landscapes etnokormyaschih. Become commonplace flooding large areas, increasing the area of marine waters, soil erosion, the growth of deserts. Changing the conditions of the environment, in particular the duration of daylight hours, rainfall characteristics, conditions etnokormyaschego landscape, etc. will actively influence the biochemical features of the exchange, the formation of the mentality of the people.

The fact that a particular landscape and natural biosphere factors play a decisive role in the formation of ethnic traditions, including the cultural and ideological foundations, forms of social life, economy, security. The natural and climatic environment determines not only the specific external features of the person, but also to a certain extent the hierarchy of values of the individual and the collective, national and geopolitical interests of the territorial unit, the priorities of national security in general. As predicted, the global climatic changes have a direct impact on the development of social phenomena and events in certain regions of the world, in general, the international situation and world politics.

Over the past 800 years have marked the rapid growth of the Earth's temperature. During the last thirty years have increased dramatically evaporation of the oceans, which is particularly detrimental effect on the global climate. It is predicted that in comparison with 1990 by 2100 th the temperature increase will be from 1.7 to 4.4 degrees. In the foreseeable future will be vulnerable coastal states whose territories are directly adjacent to the waters of the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic oceans. The rate of global warming will increase. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, due to the active glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland, sea levels could rise by 60 centimeters, which will lead to flooding of some island states and coastal cities.

It is estimated by the international scientific community, in particular the expert International Alert, caused by climate change, soil erosion, sea level rise, melting glaciers and increased storms and hurricanes will lead to social disasters and the outbreak of armed conflict in most of Asia, Africa and Latin America. Climate calculations tipped to a significant increase in mortality from heat waves, water scarcity, food and medicine. Natural devastating fires and giant waves will make it impossible to continue staying in the cities and cause mass migration of the population.

As experts say that by 2100, almost the entire planet Earth will be in the power of the water element. The adverse effects of climate-related disasters in many ways reminiscent of the biblical predictions of the Apocalypse. Evidence that the current geological forecasts are not unfounded, are not only already taken place global cataclysms in the long history of the evolution of human civilization, but also a marked increase in the number of different kinds of natural disasters in recent times.

According to the British charity organization "Oxfam» (OXFAM), over the past 20 years, the annual number of certain types of natural disasters has quadrupled. Thus, in the early 80's of the last century the number of accidents and natural disasters around the world was 120 a year, now their is about 500 annually. In Russia only in the last 20 years, the number of natural disasters has increased by 30%. According to forecasts of Hydrometeorology, 2015 their number will double.

An example of how the climate is changing dramatically today are permanent natural disasters in Europe. In particular, the British Isles every year experiencing severe weather shocks. Over the past decade, there were more likely to be hurricanes, storms, floods and floods. Increasingly, the winter rains, a lot of snow. Geological estimates for the territory of the country also remains disappointing.

River flooding during heavy rains and other disasters do not pass by, and other European countries. Disasters not only lead to the destruction of homes and buildings, but also the death of crops. South Europe are increasingly suffering from droughts that lead to fires. As a result of such disasters is increasing air pollution, there are all sorts of diseases and epidemics, increased mortality among the elderly, more problems with food and water.

According to the UN, in recent years, food prices have increased by almost 40%. Particularly strong spike in the price of wheat (50-80%), oilseeds (about 40%) and dairy products (80-200%). According to experts of FAO, it was possible not only because of the general decline of food supplies, increased demand for food products that are used as raw material for fuel, but also the rise of natural disasters and anomalies, including increased droughts and floods. Thus, in our eyes, the issue of food security is becoming one of the most pressing problems of our time.

Another, no less urgent international issue that is closely connected with the problems of the climatic challenges is the situation with fresh water. According to the UN, a third of the world's population faces water scarcity.

In today's world climatic anomalies are increasingly destabilizing and make significant adjustments to the daily lives of nations and peoples of the world. The situation is complicated by the increasing influence of human impact on the environment. Many scientists associated with it, primarily a marked warming of the earth. With global climatic changes have been linked increase in conflicts around the world, primarily because of the access to natural resources. In particular, it is predicted that global warming would be easier access to energy, which is rich in the Arctic. In an increasingly global scarcity of resources today among the leading countries of the world starts to escalate the struggle over the Arctic.

According to studies, the planet greatest resistance to natural disasters and anomalies will continue to maintain the Eurasia continent, and especially the modern territory of the Russian Federation. Compared with other countries, to a lesser extent Russia will suffer from the devastating effects of environmental changes on Earth. It is expected that the overall warming of the climate will promote the regeneration of the climatic environment, increasing the diversity of fauna and flora in certain regions of Russia. Global changes have a beneficial effect on the fertility of the land of the Urals and Siberia. However, the effect of these factors will not last long, and then the positive effect of global warming will come to naught. In this case the territory of Russia is unlikely to escape the flooding of large and small, the growth of the steppe and semi-desert areas.

According to many scientists, especially important for all life on the Eurasian continent will have a displacement of the energy of the sun to the center of the "Big physiographic zone" from the Carpathians to the Urals. In geographical terms, it coincides with the lands of "historical Russia", which is accepted to the territory of modern Belarus and Ukraine, the European part of Russia. Such phenomena of cosmic origin represent a point concentration of solar and other energy on the fauna and flora of the "Great physical and geographical area." In a metaphysical context, there is a situation in the world, where its range of settlement peoples of this area will have an important role in global social processes.

In general, future climatic changes in the world that have a serious danger to the very existence of the peoples of the world, require states and governments of today to be ready to act in a crisis of the evolution of human civilization.

In the world are beginning to realize that the vulnerability of the current environmental system acquired related global threats and require immediate resolution. Scientists estimate that humanity is able to cope with the effects of climatic changes. Currently, only the military expenditures of NATO countries reach a trillion dollars, which is 75% of the global cost of armed conflict. Today, the money would have been enough to stop the unfavorable development of the ecological situation in the world.
