Climatic Change

Posted on January 1, 2017 in News

The planet is being warmed up, from the North Pole to the South Pole, and throughout. The effects in the increase of the temperatures and the climatic change are not being made hope nor will come in the future distant. They are happening right now. The signs are appearing throughout, and some of them are surprising. Not only it is the heat, the defrosting of glaciers and the marine ice, also is the change in the precipitation landlords and the establishment of the animal in movement.

Some impacts of the increase of the temperatures already are happening and these are some of them who can be generated by the Carbon Dioxide and its impact in the environment: * The ice is melting anywhere in the world, especially in the poles. This includes mountain glaciers, the ice layers that cover the Antarctic Occidental and Greenland, and the marine ice in the Arctic. * The Investigator and scientist Bill Fraser have followed the declination of the Adelia penguins in the Antarctic, where its number has fallen of 32,000 to 11,000 reproductive pairs in 30 years. * One in the last notices a great increase in the level of the sea years. * Some butterflies, vixens and alpine plants have moved more to the north where they find zones colder. * The precipitations (rain and snow) have increased anywhere in the world, in average. The previous effects are those that can clearly at present be noticed in the nature and environment, next we enumerated some effects that will be begun to notice in the future very near like clear effect of the global calemiento: * An increase among 7 and 23 inches in the levels of the sea is anticipated (of 18 to 59 centimeters) at the end of century, in addition a continuous melting in the poles could add between 4 and 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters). * The hurricanes and other storms can get to be stronger.

* The species that depend on others can be outside synchrony. For example, the plants could bloom before their insects pollenizers respond to the changes. * The floods and the droughts will become more common. precipitations in Ethiopia, where the droughts already are common, could fall in 10 percent in next the 50 years. * Less fresh water will be available. If layer Quelccaya the ice in Peru continues melting to the present rate, will have disappeared for year 2100, leaving to thousands of people who depend on her for the potable water and the electricity without a reliable source of fresh liquid. * Some diseases will extend, like the malaria transmitted by mosquitos. * The ecosystems will change, some species will move towards the north to be more successful, others will not be able to move and could be extinguished.
