We come to you pretty often with dreadful predictions about the fight that will open if it continues the atmospheric warming at the present rate-hell, is likely to open at least whether or not we drastically slash our carbon emissions right this very moment, so we have long neglected the problem. Expert after experts has repeatedly clarified that it is deliberately ignorant likely to mean miscellaneous devastation: devastating floods that drives islands and coastal populations within the country, creating mass congestion, horribly hot, suffocating drought heat and, thanks to the unobtrusive conditions, the rapid death of coral reefs and many other forms of living animals
All of them, climate reports emphasize, are likely which will start earlier than expected, within the next 1
New York City, according to the oracle's oracle, will have a climate that can be compared to Jonesboro, Arkansas, in 2080. For reference, the high point is now 54 degrees, while here in NYC, the height is 33 degrees and we enjoy a snowstorm.
U.S. Climate Data indicates that it may mean that our city becomes more temperate throughout the year: The annual average temperature for Jonesboro clocks at at a mild 59 degrees, while the average low comes in at a very small 48. The average high hovers at 70 degrees, which really sounds like it's a great improvement over the typical NYC summer, where scalding winds combined with lead humidity make you feel like You live in the molten center of a lava cake. But at present, our annual average temp is 55 degrees, with low 48 and a high of 62.
And then, note that eviscerating heat waves will be more frequent in the coming years. According to NBC 4 New York, the creator of the map of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Studies ecological professor Matt Fitzpatrick-selected 540 different cities where he can examine the effects of 12 different & # 39; t other environmental variables-items such as minimum and maximum temperatures, along with seasonal precipitation levels-under two separate climate change scenarios: The one where we plow our current path to destruction , and another where our emissions peak in the middle of the century, but decline thereafter. The justification for this data along with the results of 27 different computerized climate models, Fitzpatrick matches every city with the most similar climatic counterpart. "Children are living today, like my 12-year-old daughter, they see a dramatic climate change," Fitzpatrick says in NBC 4. "It's been over."
