Rapid climate change around the globe is expected in the coming decades. Recent research has not only confirmed the worst-case scenarios in the scientific community, but also reinforced them, pointing to dramatic climate change and the reversal of eras as we know them today. The research model shows that by 2,100, summer with temperatures above 30 and heatwaves will last more than six months, while winter will shrink in less than two months. What does this mean; That the average temperature on Earth will rise, the ice will melt much faster, the sea level will rise and the water will cover a large part of the coastal settlements around the world, while many species of plants and animals will not be able to adapt and to survive. As far as humanity is concerned, it may face serious problems at all levels.
The research published by Chinese scientists, using the most modern measuring and calculating instruments, captures a highly catastrophic scenario, much sooner than previously thought. The rapid expansion of summer and the simultaneous shrinkage of winter, entail radical changes in the environment, in the agricultural sector and in production, but also in human health, as the function of our body is inextricably linked to the environment and the prevailing conditions.
“Summers are getting hotter and hotter as a result of rising global temperatures,” said Yuping Guan, an oceanographer at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. “More and more often we see reports outside of climatic logic , such as the lack of spring, or snow in May,” he added.
In his research, Dr. Guan and his colleagues,
examined the climate models and data for the Northern Hemisphere, from 1952 to 2011. They found dramatic changes in climate from season to season and as a result of the acceleration of the phenomena, they came to their conclusions, based on the advanced models that have at their service.
The Chinese team of researchers found that in the 50s, the seasons evolved smoothly, in contrast to the last decades, which present various anomalies, with sudden and particularly intense phenomena, while environmental models of areas with specific weather phenomena have been overturned. , such as snow in the Sahara Desert, or extreme heat and 35 degrees Celsius in northern regions, such as Britain and the Nordic countries, or heat waves and 40 degrees Celsius in France, Germany and other parts of Central Europe.
