Number of natural hazards in Russia is growing by 6%.
Number of natural hazards in Russia is growing by 6%. At today's press conference, Deputy Head of Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Rosgidromet) Alexander Frolov each year in Russia is about 1 thousand to 1.1 thousand natural hazards, of which every third causes economic damage. According to Frolov, part of the natural disaster does not cause economic harm only because it occurs in unpopulated areas. "This year we expect a flood of that intensity will be above average. That's floods, river floods inflict maximum economic damage that exceeds even the damage from earthquakes. Direct economic losses from floods every year in Russia is 30-40 billion rubles. And indirect loss - at times more ", - A. Frolov.
JAKARTA. Global climate change, which can now watch the faces of humanity effects comparable to damage from the great wars of the first half of XX century, and it accelerates as the world becomes warmer.
This opinion was expressed in the organized on Friday in the Indonesian capital, the World Bank Public Forum on Global Climate Change and Indonesia, the head of economic department and adviser to UK Government on environmental issues, Sir Nicholas Stern (Nicholas Stern).
He oversaw the preparation of the published late last year in London, 700-page report, "Review of Economics (in a) climate change." British Prime Minister Tony Blair described it as "the most important document that the current government has published during his stay in power."
It is already obvious that "we will witness even greater disaster," - said Stern in his speech in Jakarta.
Particularly large, they will be for the island states, what are the UK and Indonesia, he said, answering a question RIA Novosti.
In the UK, will begin wet winters, which will not be able to handle the sewage system of London underground and the city is choking, says adviser.
Even more serious are the consequences of climate change for Indonesian capital of Jakarta which can generally hide under the water, said Stern.
He predicted that the continuation of the current environmental policies will lead to the disappearance of 40% of living organisms on Earth. Melting of mountain glaciers would deprive the residents of water sources in China, India, the Andean countries. The disappearance of the polar ice caps raise sea level, podtaplivaya coastal lowlands, which are major metropolises and the whole country.
According to one estimate, by mid-century, approximately 200 million people will lose their shelter because of rising sea levels, flooding, while more intense droughts.
"And turn back these changes will be difficult or impossible," - says the British government adviser.
According to the report, at present costs of mitigation will be about 1% of global GDP (about $ 350 billion). However, if you do not take any action now, after two decades to eliminate the impact of global warming have to spend 5% to 20% of global GDP.
Stern notes that over the last year has dramatically changed the tone of discussion in the world of global climate change and more and more governments of leading countries of the world proclaim the fight against it a priority. This is the reason to look to the future with optimism, says the British government adviser.
"First of all, reducing the risk of climate change requires collective action. The cooperation between countries, between public and private sectors", - he said.
According to him, "the worst impacts of global climate change can still be avoided, but this will require urgent and decisive collective action."
The climate of the Arabian Peninsula is changing very rapidly
UAE scientists are convinced - the climate in the Arabian Peninsula is changing very rapidly. This year, the effects of global warming become more apparent.
Ibrahim al-Dzharvan - a highly respected meteorologist from the United Arab Emirates. He noted that climate change on the peninsula are largely faster than expected. The intensity of rainfall has seriously changed, the average temperature of the seasons is undergoing significant changes. This year, the State Weather Service recorded rainfall, which is by far a record. Also, frequent sandstorms.
The planet has become a real scene of climatic disasters. And the Arabian Peninsula is no exception. Over the past 25 years of observations, scientists have recorded all the more significant changes of climate of the territory. The database is the oldest meteorological Emirates, in particular one that operates at Sharjah airport - vivid proof of the catastrophic effects of global warming on the region.
In the United Arab Emirates has been a shift seasons. Winter and summer rains have changed their intensity. In the spring falls much less rain than it did 30 years ago. A number of dust storms has increased dramatically. "Touz" (as locals call the phenomenon) usually occurred in summer, rare. 2.3 sand storms per year - this was the norm. Over the last decade, this number has increased several times. In some years there and 20 sand storms.
Summer and autumn rains now continue until the end of October, and before seasonal rains lasted until August-September. A period of fog effects, which primarily occurs in March and October, and now starts in November and lasts until January. In recent years, the overall summer temperature in the Arabian Peninsula, reaching over 50 degrees Celsius. A very strong humidity air masses are now detected at the end of summer, and to climate change, it was observed in early July. The shift of the usual natural phenomenon is very bright on the peninsula.
Ibrahim al-Dzharvan forecasts and the terrible flooding in the region. He counted as an increase in global sea level affects the Arabian Gulf. According to him, in 2100 the water level in the Bay could rise by 1.5 meters. That means flooding many settlements Arabian Peninsula.
The results of calculations UAE meteorologist at variance with the results of studies by international scientists. In particular, the International Committee on Climate Change provides information on sea level rise to a maximum of 43 centimeters by the end of this century.
