'Increase of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, which get their energy f

rom warm tropical waters, is forecast by the models. However, it remains a contr oversial issue. Seems to exist a relationship between the increase in number and frequency of hurricanes and global warming to the Pacific Ocean, but there is n o evidence of this happening in the Atlantic. Those who have nothing to do with global warming are tsunamis, caused by underwater earthquakes. Anyway, it sure d oes not destroy the Earth because of climate change.

and new climate conditions will affect some of the resources of many regions of the world (crops, fisheries, tourism, etc.).. Climate change will bring benefits to individuals and species that will adapt to the new situation. In addition, t here will be countries that have a milder climate, less cold. A minor extension of ice in the Arctic during the summer can be opened to navigation between the A tlantic Ocean Pacific Ocean. The changes will cause an economic crisis and will need to consider new

nsieme with changes in the geographical distribution of animals and plants, clim ate change will cause the same changes in infections that are transmitted by cer tain species (mosquitoes, worms, etc.).. It is assumed that it can increase the presence of numerous current diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue and trypanosomiasis, particularly in tropical regions.

How can I know the climate over the next 50 years if you can not predict the wea ther for the day within 10 days? I How scientists measure the global temperature ?On this end, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has 10,000 inland meteo

hy one thing is the time to a particular day and another is the climate, which i s an average time in many years and thousands of days. With such large numbers w e find solace in statistics. For example, we calculate that the world population will reach 7 billion people on October 18 of 2012, but we can not know how many relatives we have to date. Something similar happens with the weather forecast and climate. Although we can not predict the weather for the day within 10 days

of complex mathematical calculations tell us the average temperature and sea lev el that we, approssimatamene at the end of the twenty-first century. of data, wh ich determines the average global temperature of the Earth and other parameters. The large number of measurements collected from a multitude of places minimizes the possible errors of calculation and also avoids the heat of their city to al ter the global average.

he effects of climate change will be more intense in the Arctic (where polar bea rs live) compared to the Antarctic (where the penguins live). Arctic thaw will o ccur on the seas, rivers and permafrost (layer of earth that remains permanently frozen). All this will change the distribution and extent of forests, tundra an d, consequently, of all species associated with these environments. It is estima ted that the polar bear population will grow from about 20,000 to 14,000 over th e next 50 years. Currently not known the consequences of global warming on pengu ins.

the global warming causes a significant increase in the amount of freshwater in the Arctic regions, and this is due to melting ice, is the increase of precipita tion. In the North Atlantic has been an increase in temperature, while the salin ity is markedly decreased. These changes can affect the functioning of the ocean . However, the slowdown of the Gulf Stream could have catastrophic consequences not foreseen by anyone. The global warming has already caused the displacement a nd migration of marine species. The species can not migrate or adapt to this tem perature and competition is likely to disappear. Very important is the effect of the increase of carbon dioxide, which affects more acidic sea water. A phenomen on that has begun to deteriorate the biology of organisms such as coral or shell fish; these animals, in fact,€use calcium carbonate to form the skeleton or shel l limestone.

What can I do?

High tech, ultra. We can, for example, avoid the waste of energy, water and othe r resources (recycling, save, etc..) Requesting that governments and businesses do the same. A low energy bulb saves burning about 140 gallons of oil and 160 po unds of coal. Replacing all the bulbs are a nation would be enormous savings. Ho wever pay attention to their use: independent French research centers argue that these types of bulbs can cause adverse health magnetic fields within a meter. A void, therefore, use as light sources for 'lampshade' offices.

For this we must reduce CO2 emissions, as we ll as established the Kyoto Protocol, signed by 141 nations in 1997. Despite thi s, many are not meeting their commitments, also three great economic powers (Chi na, India and the U.S.) have not even signed. Although today we do not know how to stop it, history shows us that scientific discoveries can, in many cases, hel p solve problems. One hope, then, is also from the search.
