Global Nature

Be timed for our planet. Global warming is reaching limits of no return. NY museums is full of insight into the issues. Experts warn that if the Earth’s temperature continues to rise there will be important consequences: thousands of species disappear, the sea level will rise and flood coastal areas and millions of people will suffer from the shortage of water and food. A future that we can still change. It is in our hands. Emissions of greenhouse gases will have to touch ceiling in the year 2020, according to climatologist W.L. Hare, and gradually reduce gradually until by the year 2050 we come to take the levels of the 1990s.

Since the 18th century, beginning of the industrial revolution, land has increased by almost a degree temperature. And it will be unavoidable, according to the latest report of the WorldWatchInstitute on the situation of the world 2009, that the temperature increase by one or two tenths in spite of our efforts to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide. Scientists believe that the effects of CO2 even they have not impacted totally on temperature. And if the trend does not change in the coming years, the report warns that the global temperature will be 4 or 6 degrees above the current at the end of the 21st century. The thaw is the most visible consequence of the increase in global temperature. Projections announce that you by the end of the century, the Arctic summer ice will be almost disappeared.

Which will cause a change in the global climate since the poles and the permafrost are fundamental for the balance of climate, temperature, and ecosystems. In addition, coastal areas will disappear. Cities like New York or Tokyo, countries such as Belgium, Islands will be buried by water. And while flooding will occur, the flows of rivers decreases and the water will become a scarce commodity for millions of people. Water will continue to food shortages and conflicts, armed or not, by a few resources scarce, but essential for life factories and industry are not only responsible for the sending of CO2 to the atmosphere.
