2070 year, Persian Gulf

The growth of average annual temperatures and the increase in extreme climatic conditions may lead to the Gulf countries becoming unsuitable for life by the beginning of 2070. Such a gloomy forecast was given by American experts. Many large cities and a number of areas will become uninhabitable. A climate catastrophe will occur if the UN member states do not agree at the Paris Climate Conference on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The study was conducted by two scientists from the United States: Elfatih Eltahir from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Jeremy Pal from Loyola University, Los Angeles. The results of the study were published in a scientific journal. "Nature Climate Change".

In the introductory part of the article, the authors indicate that the human body is able to adapt to temperature changes according to the so-called. dry thermometer (normal temperature on thermometers) through the release of sweat and cooling associated with the evaporation of moisture, but only under the condition that the temperature is so-called. wet thermometer (more complex, combined temperature and humidity) remains below the threshold value 35 degrees Celsius. The specified threshold defines the “survival limit” of a person, the authors write.

Based on the construction of regional climate models, scientists predict that the temperature on a wet thermometer in the Persian Gulf region is likely to exceed this critical threshold due to excessive concentrations of greenhouse gases.

In fact, the research results indicate a new regional “hot spot” where climate change will occur. And it will seriously affect the habitability of the territories in the future.

When will this happen? Scientists believe that the disappointing forecast may come true by the year of 2070. This year, the growth of average annual temperatures and air humidity along with extreme climatic phenomena will make the states of the Persian Gulf unsuitable for life.

Climatologists point to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. According to them, if humanity continues to emit the same amount of greenhouse gases as it is now, towards the end of the century the countries of the Persian Gulf will “pass” beyond the critical point. Their territories will be unfit for human life. It is not only in gases, but also in humidity. A unique combination of high humidity (bay water) and high temperature takes place in these areas. The Persian Gulf is shallow, and its waters will quickly evaporate under the hot sun. As a result, the humidity will rise to a maximum.

The so-called wet thermometer temperature is made up of a combination of ambient temperature and humidity. Achieving a critical threshold leads to the fact that a living object can not cool itself by evaporation of moisture from the skin. And if such a temperature rises beyond 35 degrees, then a person is waiting for overheating and sunstroke. Probable and death.

The study of Eltahir and his colleagues, Pal, clearly demonstrated that the states of the Persian Gulf would come to a critical point of the "sunstroke" in more than fifty years. Only one thing can help: in December 2015, representatives of the UN member countries will meet at the Paris Climate Conference, where greenhouse gas emissions will be discussed.

If the world powers fail to come to terms with the UN, many of the Persian Gulf territories will eventually become uninhabitable. Among those scientists call the major cities (Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and others). In these areas, the temperature of the wet thermometer will exceed 35 degrees Celsius.

Other local areas are already experiencing the difficulties of a “wet thermometer”. In the middle of summer, in July, daytime temperatures in some cities of Iran and Iraq rose above 48 and even 50 degrees. At night, it was 30 degrees, which is dangerously close to the life-threatening mark in 34,6 degrees Celsius "wet thermometer."

How can helping people reduce greenhouse gas emissions? Very simple: if emissions can be reduced, the growth of global temperatures will be able to be sustained by mankind, and the temperature level in the countries of the Persian Gulf will remain about the same as today.

After half a century, another event can also occur, also related to climate, we add from ourselves. By this time, Alaska can free itself from permafrost.

Melting frozen soils will aggravate global warming, radio said "Satellite" chief editor of the Russian journal "Ecology and Life" Alexander Samsonov.

Methane, which will be released by thawing frozen soils, will aggravate global warming, said Alexander Samsonov. “Alaska and the entire permafrost zone (and more in Russia than in North America) are in a state where a slight increase in temperature can cause a self-sustaining process that is difficult to stop,” the expert said. - Therefore, there is something to fear. In permafrost areas there are deposits of methane hydrates. Methane - a greenhouse gas, it leads to the greenhouse effect. In this sense, it is more efficient than carbon dioxide. Found back in the 60-ies of the last century, deposits of methane hydrates may begin to be released. Permafrost is a very powerful stock of primarily pure ice. Melting ice causes self-consistent warming, it is local, but then global will occur. ”

The liberation of Alaska from permafrost, according to the expert, will be a global catastrophe: “If Alaska becomes free from permafrost, then this can be considered a synonym for global catastrophe. Because such amount of ice, turning into water, will cause an overflow of the seas and oceans in the same way as the melting of the ice cap of Greenland, and this is already calculated - the sea level will rise by two meters, that is, all coastal cities will be flooded, it will be a cataclysm. ” According to the scientist, the northern taiga, located south of the Arctic Circle, will also disappear.

According to Samsonov, one should not allow the exit from the control of global warming. Therefore, relevant issues will be discussed at the UN climate change conference in Paris.

Thus, we note in conclusion that the future of mankind depends on the outcome of the December meeting in Paris. And first of all - the countries of the Persian Gulf.

    It’s easy to make predictions for 50 years in advance. Come true, well done. It didn’t come true, it was because a variety of factors changed and we prevented (exacerbated) everything.

    Cheap oil and gas provoke an increase in car sales in the world, and a diesel scandal leads to an increase in sales of gasoline engines producing more CO2 than diesel. So everything is fine. We are moving ahead of the pace.
    Only nature has a protective mechanism - a global oceanic thermal conveyor in the form of warm and cold currents. As the ice melts, the salinity of the water decreases and the conveyor rises. And Europe is covered by the ice age. So it’s more likely to freeze than to dry.

      I agree with both hands. If somewhere decreases, then somewhere arrives. In Western Siberia, cooling in recent years.

    "" Rising average annual temperatures and more frequent climatic extremes could make the Gulf states uninhabitable by early 2070 "
    it has been proven 1001 times that "global warming" is a myth, rather a new ice age awaits us by 2070

    It seems that there is a very extensive version that the processes of global climate change are cyclical and if they depend on anthropology very little, the same release of gas and magma from one volcano is approximately equal to the annual operation of the entire vehicle fleet of an average state, if BV becomes "Sahara" already is, it means that such a fate will be resettled, different states only have to calculate the risks associated with this, develop methods of "recapturing" newcomers to a digestible cultural form, or preventing their excessive presence or prepare for mass slaughter, which can also be a solution to the problem in last resort.

    I live in Novosibirsk for many years. And to be honest; such warm winters as the last 2-3 have never been here. In the last so -30 at all never passed. Every summer is sultry and hot, with virtually no rain. Rejoice or cry, I do not know.

      Of course, if you spend the winter in Tae))))) the last winter without mastering the course I stayed at home, and -30 stood for at least a week, I had a car with air suspension so I worried without a garage and watched the thermometer scratching my wallet regularly))))

    Everything is back to square one. The ice age is ending. When the jungle grows again on Antarctica, the Earth will return to its normal temperature. Mankind is used to thinking that the moment in which it exists is something unshakable. And hangs noodles, which can change the weather, i.e. temperature (radiation) of the Sun. A lot of carbon dioxide, this is a consequence, and not the reason for heating the Earth, this is a side effect of heating the atmosphere with the Sun. From the school course it is known that the solubility of gases in water decreases with increasing temperature. what

    Recently, a climatologist spoke on some channel, showing climate fluctuations as a result of drilling a well at Vostok station in Antarctica. The bottom line is that now we are at the peak of temporary warming. The peak itself has already passed and again we are starting to slowly cool down. I do not remember the frequency now. But what’s the point, all these futurologists, threatening climatic troubles, have already pulled up. The earth as lived in its cycles, and lives. And if we, from our 80-120 years of life there, cannot cover the cycle several times larger than our life, this does not mean that we themselves are to blame for any climate changes and we are frantic, it’s time to crawl to the cemetery and doze there peacefully until the end of our days of their own. Humanity is affecting the planet, but not yet so disastrous. So far I am sure of this.

An interesting composition of the editorial board, of these 23 members, six are all sorts of German-Spaniards, doctors of law, international affairs and other figures from the EU, the list is here # 1 It remains to find out for what money the magazine exists and, it is possible that the opinion of Comrade Samsonova will turn from an "expert" into a Europuk.

    RAS observatories do not exclude the possibility of an asteroid colliding with the Earth in 2035. Collision with a celestial body with a diameter of more than a kilometer will lead to a continental disaster, which will cause serious climate change. If an asteroid falls into the ocean and causes a big wave, then the disaster can become global.
    So perhaps by 2070 the problem of life in the Gulf countries will disappear by itself.

    The United States is the largest supplier of greenhouse gas emissions.
    They should be taken care first of all, and not the rest of the world.
    In addition, there are different theories, both of global warming and of the global ice age, and in these theories the role of humanity is insignificant in front of other factors.
    Although, if you cut down all the forests and pour more oil into the sea, then you can make a more significant contribution to the climate reconstruction of the world .... And if you provoke the 3rd world war using I / O, then even the creator will be surprised at the redevelopment ....

    Prior to the construction of GRES-1 and GRES-2, the local air was favorable for patients with asthma, but now it is the other way around, although automobile emissions are probably a big part in this. But these are not even coal stations, supposedly only nuclear plants are safer, provided that they work stably.
    Everything can be.

    Why worry then? Until the age of 70, there is a chance to spread mother earth to the state of the asteroid belt, and you think it will get colder or warmer, or flood. It’s getting colder - we’ll grow wool, it’ll flood - fins with gills, it’s just bad to poke buttons on the clave, it’s not convenient for the fins.
