Climate changes

Above any reasonable doubt, the various climate changes we have experienced over the last 250 years have been caused by anthropogenic activities.

The most significant factor that impact climate changes is the presence of CO2 in the atmosphere. As a matter of fact, CO2 is the natural gas with the greatest influence on climate changes (according to the reached value).

A matter of fact, above any doubt

Nowadays, the increasing presence of CO2 levels in the atmosphere is alarming. In particular, this is due to deforestation and fossil materials combustion.

In the following image shows, according to some NASA studies, the CO2 quantity over the last 400.000 years. It is visible how, since the 90s, CO2 has reached values never seen before!

Sea level rise

The increase in temperature causes a rise in sea levels, which, in turn, leads to devastating consequences. Since 2000, the sea level increased of 7cm.

The geo-politic stability is fundamental for the development and growth of a country of continent.

What would be the effect of increasing sea levels, considering that 100 millions people currently live only 1 meter above the sea level?

The practical effect of “climate change”

As the following images from NASA’s website indicates, it also clear how temperature constantly increased over the last decades, generating upheavals in the environment and climate.

The most impacted sites are polar regions, due to the presence of permafrost, which is a frozen subsurface layer of soil rich in vegetable biomass.

The practical effect of “climate change”

Glacier melting and sea level rise

Extreme weather events, flooding...

Scarcity of water resources

Water shortage for the population

Threat to food production

Abnormal temperatures out of season
