Like the United States of America, much of the so-called “breadbasket” of Europe and Russia (even Russian-dominated parts of Ukraine) are predicted by every Climate Model to suffer. Above, Dark Brown represents a -85% drop in Crop Sustainability by 2100 from 2011 levels. This is based on the what is known as the “RCP6.0 model,” or 6.0 W/m2. The number references the increase in heat content per unit area of Earth’s surface.
If you thought 2011 was a so-so year, by 2100 in the areas affected you will have far more to complain about. Your sustainability and yield will be cut by almost 100%. It will be cut if humanity does nothing and continues to emit greenhouse gases as it is. The “Business-as-Usual” model or the ‘Climate-Deniers’ model is seen in “RCP8.5,” below…
Why? It is not only a rise of global temperature that is impacted by ‘Global-Warming.’ Our precipitation patterns will be impacted. We will see the expansion of the Sahara-like desert North into Europe and the Sonaran desert into The United States of America.
Climatologists call this the “transformation” of The Hadley Cell Formations, between 0 and 30N Latitude. (below). The Hadley Cell is going to move North, taking the climate of the Sahara Desert with it into Italy; the Russian-dominated part of Ukraine (although Western Ukraine fans slight better off); France, Germany and even England, although – at this point – the Republic of Ireland and Scotland may fair slight better. Yet in the end, we are all in this together, aren’t we? This is why Ms Greta Thunberg has rightly said,
“Change is coming, whether you WANT it or not.”
Much of it in unpredictable ways, if we do not act to reduce emissions now.
While I am no climatologist, I am a scientist. I have taken more than one course of study to understand for myself the models I have used to set-up and to calculate variations in climate patterns. I started out with just attempting to understand the effects of Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) occurring in the Arctic Ocean – now annually – when a region known as the Barents-Kara Sea Region is devoid of sea-ice during the ‘Arctic Sea-Ice Minimum’ in September. This was based on a model developed by Battelle-PNNL climatoligists asking the question: What if one small region – not the melting of all Arctic sea-ice – could have huge ramifications on the weakening of jet streams over North America?
It does apparently, disrupting the ‘Arctic Vortex,’ weakening the jet stream that used to trap cold air around the Arctic until the 21st Century, leading to negative oscillations in that jet stream and letting frigid air loose on the midwest and eastern USA seaboard and through Maritime Canada in Winter.
Take the course. I only received a grade of 81%. YOU CAN DO BETTER!
Then take this course, especially if the security of your family, your country, and your World are important to you. Presented by professors, lawyers, and military experts of the UNEP UNLI, and UN Peace Keeping Forces.
I only received a grade of 88%. You can do better than that!
It is here I learned about MapX, an off-shoot of Google BIG DATA, and UNBiodiversityLab. Combined with the understanding you received in the first course on Climate Change, the second course gives you the tools for Climate Action with Equity.
Both courses are FREE, and up-to-date, but if your wish to be verified, $49 each.
