Noah Diffenbaugh, an atmospheric scientist at Purdue University says: "Summer is likely to be more severely hot everywhere in the U.S. In the Southwest, if you imagine the hottest two and a half weeks of the year, you're looking at that becoming three months long. Phoenix [Arizona] will get three months of what is now the hottest two weeks of the year. Winter weather could be affected as well. You're looking at the coldest couple of weeks of the year not existing anymore in lot of places. Certainly winter as we know it likely will disappear in the Northeast."
These are his conclusions as a results of a study together with researchers at Purdue and the Abdus Salarn International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. The study was conducted with computer simulations using climate data and projections of greenhouse gas levels.
Higher temperatures has more dangerous consequences than just missing white Christmas. It can lead to unpredictable weather, drought in some places, floods in others, sea level will rise, some low lying islands will disappear from the surface of the earth, disease-carrying mosquitos will expand their range, some species will be pushed to extinction. According to many experts, some of these effects has already begun.
Enviroman says: "time to take climatic changes and global warming seriously."
