How will life on Earth be in 100 years as a result of warming
According to scientists from the University of Hawaii, up to 3/4 of the world’s population is endangered by extreme heat that will result in their gradual exodus into colder climates.
As a result of rising sea levels, some island nations will disappear.
Kiribati Islands – 100,000 people moved
Solomon Islands – 585,000 people
Maldives – 325,000 people
Sejchelly -87 100 people
The islands of Torres and Tegua – 9,000 people
Micronesia – 103,000 people
Palau – 20,000 people
The Carteret and Tuvalu Islands – 14,500 people
Bangladesh – 156 million people. This is not an island state, but this country is already very much tested by climate change. Many people, for this reason, emigrated from the country. Many people try to find new ways of survival, Farming on floating platforms.
The most affected cities due to rising levels are going to be:
- Rio de Janeiro
- Hong Kong
International migration is already anchored for war conflicts, it recognizes economic migration, but migration because of climate change is something new and blatant that the European Commission has addressed this issue in its resolution 2017/2086 (INI – European Parliament resolution of 16 January 2018 on women, equality between women and men and climate justice).
Since 1850, the peak of the so- the ice age in the Swiss glaciers decreased from 130 to 54 cubic kilometres. An exceptional decline has been noted especially in recent years and decades. In 1973, 2150 glaciers were recorded in Switzerland, now only around 1400, according to the DPA.
The ice has faded on average 2km3 / year since r. 1850 due to warming by 1 ° C, the warming of 3 ° C is expected over the next 100 years, so it can be said that from the last 54km3 of the ice until 2100 it will completely disappear.
Czech and Slovakia
Center for Global Change Research The Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic – CzechGlobe and Karel Klem built a science station to study the impact of climate change on crop quality by 100 years.
Grain due to these effects will have a higher sugar content but a lower protein content. Trees will also produce more sugars, attracting more insects and pests. Their overhead will grow faster than underground as a result of higher CO2 concentrations, causing more wood and lighter trees.
The average increase in temperature but not the only problem. Serious problems are temperature fluctuations and precipitation totals depending on the season. More than 3 days frost stronger than usual for the region causes the plant to freeze. On the contrary, too hot winter results in pests not being thawed and plants suffering from diseases. In combating forest and agricultural pests, it will be necessary to involve chemicals, which can negatively reflect on the quality of groundwater. If the rainfall for spring and summer is normal, but with a dry spring and a rainy summer layout, it is a serious problem that can not be seen in annual averages, but it reflects on the office.
All of the above fluctuations are happening today and have an impact on the quality and price of the food.
Changes that can be expected on our territory are increased energy demands for heating and cooling due to temperature fluctuations, floods, wind shrinks, forest calamities, impaired water quality and food.
