Hiroshima of nature

All limits "extreme" weather events will be broken and relocated further, experts warn. Forecasters add new color to the map, snow snow in Middle East.

What is God sinned Australians, so that on its southern hemisphere, in the middle of January, as well as roasted on a spit? A country that considers itself lucky otherwise - and how could it not, when one of the richest, most recently with record unemployment of 5.4 percent - this summer (our winter) experienced the greatest heat in history. And, according to insider, yet to be seen ...

And in the northern hemisphere - snow, where his place is. White blanket and saw in Jerusalem. In Syria, the shooting stopped briefly due snowball fight. Everyone agrees that the climate is not quite the same as some time ago, and clearly they were to be changed, but there are still skeptics who doubt the theory of global warming.

Because of the temperature, the Australian forecasters have had to add new color to your folders - prune. In other words: Run for your lives who can. The whole scale weather has been moved. Temperature cataclysm occurred across Australia, the country (again) fires devastated.

- All the limits of what is now considered the extreme, this year will be shifted - said the head of the Australian office for monitoring climate change David Jones.

UN Panel on Climate Change recently announced, claiming 90-percent certainty that the heat waves coming years will be getting longer and more frequent, and the same goes for other extreme weather events, such as high tides, hurricanes, gale force winds, floods, landslides, drought ... The country will be thirsty especially in Europe and North and Central America, and South Africa.

- The future is already here, and the hot - he wrote in a commentary for the "Washington Post" James Hansen, director of NASA's space exploration. - When I was 1988th The testimony before the Senate in the future, what we bring to our planet and climate change, I painted a gray picture of the permanent consequences of temperature increase due to the use of fossil fuels. I was over optimistic.

According to this expert, extreme weather events will be more frequent. Hansen asked to lead a "green policy" to the new ecological enlightenment could reduce the serious consequences of climate effects, but also to lead the world forward, creating new jobs. It's difficult, however, goes in hand with extremism of any kind. And some argue that there is such a concern for the environment - extremism. Thus, the Czech President Vaclav Klaus spoke of a greater scourge of communism and fascism - "environmentalism".

The world began to search for the "successor" Kyoto Protocol, the document that created the obligation of industrialized countries to limit emissions of "deserving" to create a greenhouse effect. So far, 191 countries had signed and ratified the document, the U.S. has signed but not ratified, and Canada withdrew from the agreement 2011th These two "beacon of democracy" from the Anglo-Saxon world in the company of Afghanistan, Andorra and South Sudan independent only.

People with advanced environmental awareness in America mainly pointing at "The Usual Suspects" and "bad guys" when things of general interest in the issue, Republicans. Through the "Washington Post", a professor, Naomi Oreskas, University of California, San Diego, calls President Obama (Democrat) to respond - as did Franklin Roosevelt with the atomic bomb! She proposes that the head of state mobilizes scientists through the U.S. system of national laboratories. There's a good precedent: when scientists warned Roosevelt that the Germans were on their way to make nuclear weapons, the president has launched a "Manhattan Project" and his successor Truman could first try a new "toy" superpower in Hiroshima.

Professor Oreskas suggests that the president mobilize scientists to seek answers on how to reduce climate change or mitigate their consequences. This danger is not as immediate as the Hitler's atomic bomb, but the long term consequences could be equally devastating. The question is - Do people have almost divine power to rule the sun, currents, winds?


It seems that on 21 span a period of meteorological disasters opposite direction from those in the formula "Cold Kills old" ("Cold kills the old"), to which the world is accustomed to - the London "Guardian" recalls the heat wave of 2003. in Europe killed 40,000 people, and that in Russia due to the heat of the 2010th off 50,000 lives.


BRITISH Weather Service announced that the 2013th be one of the warmest years, perhaps even among the ten warmest since 1850. This does not mean that literally, in every region of the world will be warmer than the historical average. So far, otherwise, 2011. ranked as the warmest year, in 2012. is in ninth place.
