Climate Change Map To Help Predict The Next Eco-Disaster
Dec 10, 2008 13:53
Now we've got tools to help combat mother nature's fickleness. We know that as global temperatures rise, increased storms, heat waves,
and flooding will batter the Earth. A new interactive map from the
Center for American Progress demonstrates the toll climate change will
take on human beings by displaying regions that are at particular risk
for different types of ecological disaster, and explaining precisely
how future weather patterns will affect the population if global
warming continues at its current pace.
The Center for American Progress created the map to provide scientific
information on the dangers of global warming. Contributors suggest
points on the map that, according to scientific research, have recently
experienced or are predicted to experience increases in storm activity,
flooding, heat waves, and fires due to global warming. The map also
looks at endangered fisheries and possible threats to human health,
such as increases in vector-borne diseases and algae blooms. Clicking
on individual points on the map brings up a detailed prediction of the
future weather patterns.
Hopefully the same kind of system can be replicated to eco-disaster prone areas and or a worldwide view of the climate changes.
