Scientists predict that, in a radically drastic change, the temperature will be destined to rise to 6 degrees Celsius during the next century, an increase that will surely bring devastating consequences.
Floods, the advance of deserts across Europe, earthquakes and gigantic waves are just some of the disasters we might expect.
If this trend persists the northern freezing mass will lose between 50% and 100% of its current surface by the end of the century, depending on the intensity of global warming, which means that the Arctic is much more affected by human impact About nature than other regions of the globe, because:
“The additional weight of millions of cubic kilometers of water could cause strain on the weaker points of the earth’s crust, known as lithosphere by experts.
This could precipitate earthquakes and volcanic eruptions as well as geological faults that would cause local devastation and send harmful gases and debris to the atmosphere. There are also greater risks of tsunamis. These giant waves are generated by submarine earthquakes and can travel thousands of miles around the ocean at speeds of 800 kilometers per hour. They appear without warning and with waves up to 30 meters high. ”
The damages that could be caused in Mexico for consequential reasons of the problem to increase are predicted to be the following:
Disappearance of forests.
“With an increase in temperature of 2 degrees Celsius and a 10% decrease in precipitation, conifer and oak forests would be negatively affected and rainforests would be favored.”
And in the water crisis
Reducing the volume of water in heavily exploited watersheds can turn into a catastrophe, especially in densely populated areas.
And consequently in the invasions of the sea:
The rise of the sea due to climate change would not only radically alter systems of high biological productivity such as coastal lagoons, but would also have an irreversible impact on the rich biodiversity of wetland areas such as the Centla Reservoir Biosphere Reserve and Area of Protection of flora and fauna of Lagoon of Terms.
And in the effects that cities will have:
“On the one hand, the lack of water due to the reduction of rainfall and the decrease in the recharge of the aquifers and, on the other hand, the floods caused by extreme precipitation.”
Some effective recommendations to reduce damage are very simple and practical to know, which you can take right now to reduce pollution caused by global warming, the energy balance of the Earth allows to maintain the temperature in a narrow margin that makes life possible.
Each time you choose a fluorescent light bulb instead of an incandescent bulb, for example, it lowers your light bill and prevents more than 300 kilos of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the air during the life of the bulb. By choosing a refrigerator labeled Energy Star, which indicates that it uses at least 15% less energy from the federal requirement, instead of a less energy-efficient model, it can reduce carbon dioxide pollution by about one ton
And here the main silver idea is that Climate change we are already living. Major natural disasters that once occurred every decade, now increasingly occur more often. These phenomena are increasingly occurring more frequently and intensively. The detachment of large blocks of ice is occurring at the poles, giant ice masses of hundreds of km. squares.
And the underdeveloped countries will suffer the greatest impact. This will cause huge global crises due to economic consequences and human losses. Wars due to scarcity of natural resources, and one of the main causes will be water scarcity. It is very difficult, because we have to change the mentality of people, change our ways of living, and that is not from day to day. And there are other interests in play, the desire for profit and expansion of the countries of the 1st world. And this here in Mexico would not benefit us at all. We believe in a better future, let’s change now.
In doing this work I was able to understand the situation that we are living today, because of this great problem, which we can not leave on the one hand, if we do not give it importance since it is a problem that directly affects humanity.
As human beings we must raise awareness about the misuse we give to natural resources, in order to contribute our grain of sand and give solution to this problem and together we can achieve a different and better world for future generations.
