Global Warming - So What?

A Library about Climate Change

Drought, Sea O2, Adapt+

Fire, Other Ravages Jeopardize California’s Prized Forests 1023Below are files - articles - about 6 other groups of impacts and 7 aspects of adaptation.  The impacts are Ocean Acidification, Ocean (Other), Ice & Snow, Insurance, Asia, and Misc.  Adaptation is grouped into Sea Level Rise, Drought, Floods, Food, Multiple Impacts, Planning, and Other.

     Plans and measures to deal with sea level rise are a sub-group under Adaptation.  Information about how fast seas have risen, are rising, and will rise is found on the Water page.  Acid ocean effects on life are found here and on the Water page.

     Month and year follow each article's name.  PDF files are so marked, after month and date, some with authors noted.  Within sections, more recent files appear above older files.

    Diagrams are generally immediately below the summary articles from which they were taken.

‘Without Water, There Is No Life’ - Amazonas Drought Sharpens Fears for Future 1023 - 8 Brazilian states recorded the lowest rainfall in the period from July to September in over 40 years.  The Amazon’s #2 tributary, the Madeira River, whose basin extends some 2,000 miles from Bolivia to Brazil, had 4 of the 5 lowest river levels recorded in the past 4 years.  Further north, in the Negro River basin, a different pattern has emerged.  The Amazon’s #1 tributary has had 7 of its largest floods in the past 11 years, with the worst in 2021.  But the Negro River, too, is headed toward its lowest-ever water levels this year.

How Extreme Heat Could Wreck Cities 0822 - Welcome to Meltsville!  Flights are grounded as hot air does not provide enough lift, while runways get gooey.  Roads get squishy or concrete slabs expand and buckle.  Drawbridge motor and electronic sensors fail from heat.  Bridges buckle from expansion.  So do railroad tracks.  Thermal power plants become less efficient as ambient water temperatures rise; some need to shut down.  Power lines sag with heat expansion, and must carry less electricity to avoid sagging into vegetation and igniting fires.  If power fails, people can die from lack of air conditioning.   Water mains break more often as weather gets hotter.  Vinyl siding warps.  Buildings heat up, iintensifying urban heat island.  Awnings and white roofs become more popular.  A green space called Toasty Critters Park is closed due to danger of falling limbs from shade trees.

Why Climate Change Often Hits Women Harder than Men 0522 - During droughts, women and girls must walk further, often in the dark, to fetch water.  That puts them at greater risk of sexual violence.  Also, they can only make fewer trips, reducing the amount of water available to the family — and leaving even less for women in cultures where men are the first to eat and drink.  The scarcity can also make menstrual hygiene harder and stop girls going to school….  Floods that displace people or destroy toilets and make sanitation products scarce, carry an extra burden in countries with strong taboos around menstruation….

     By creating gaps in the vegetation and dispersing seeds, large animals create diverse ecosystems with plenty of opportunities for a variety of plants to grow, making ecosystems more resilient and better able to deal with climate change.
    By nibbling down polar region shrubs and trampling snow, large animals help maintain permafrost, helping prevent the release of carbon to the atmosphere.
