Making the 2012 heat wave matter

Marcos     Clima Eventos     0

Aljazeera.com reports that...

There have been two, maybe three, landmark heat waves in the history of man-made global warming. The first was in 1988 and it put the concept of global warming on the map. Then as now, the eastern two-thirds of the United States broiled beneath ferociously high temperatures, while relentless drought parched soil and withered crops across the Midwestern farm belt.

But in Washington, the underlying problem was being named for the first time. On June 23, NASA scientist James Hansen testified to the US Senate that man-made global warming had begun. The New York Times reported his remarks on page one; the media at home and abroad followed suit. By year’s end, “global warminghad become a common phrase in news bureaux, government ministries and living rooms around the world.

Whereas the USA and Canada saw winter return with a vengeance in mid-to-late February, by the middle of March it experienced far more erratic weather, con droughtslas olas de calortormentas and then, just as suddenly in some areasmore snowfall. Mientras tanto, the cherry blossom trees of Washington, DC bloomed weeks early due to the unusually warm weather. Indeed, Spring’s early arrival allowed farmers in New Jersey to get into the fields two weeks early but forced them to deal with an increase of crop-eating insects due to the mild winter. Overall, it was a very warm March, with dozens of record temperatures being set.

In other parts of the world, the warm weather had troubling effects. In Moroccodroughts caused the country’s cereal harvests to falter. Northern Mexico experienced its worst drought in 71 años, causing a severe shortage of food and water across the country. Mientras tanto, Vietnam braced itself for Tropical Storm Pakhar, y Fiji experienced flash floods. Sin embargo, just when it had seemed that Spring had come for good, citizens of western Serbia experienced large snowfalls, and in Scotland snow fell just days after record-breaking heat waves.

Thus, to call the weather over the past six weekserraticseems like an understatement. It’s a period that has seen record heat waves and snow storms, and droughts and floods, often in the same places.

El mundo pierde un tercio de la producción total mundial de alimentos

Marcos     Datos     0

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (La FAO) dio a conocer un estudio sobre la producción de alimentos la semana pasada que llegó a la conclusión 1.3 millones de toneladas de alimentos se pierden cada año. Eso es un tercio de la producción mundial total. Esta ineficiencia en la producción y consumo de alimentos refleja el derroche de energía y las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero tanto innecesaria.[...]¿Qué significan los residuos de alimentos en términos de cambio climático? "Cuando tiramos 40%, 40% de los recursos invertidos pasa en vano, para nada ", dijo Bloom. Se estima que "el 2% de toda la energía EE.UU. va a la alimentación que estamos desperdiciando." La gran cantidad de agua, petróleo, y otros recursos que van a la agricultura se despilfarran, y los engranajes de la agricultura industrial giro sin fin.Leer más.
