The Future of Our Climate in 10-30 years
Affects on the climate caused by various types of pollution (Kulsharan Gill)
Chemical pollutants causing birth defects
Associated with multiple health effects for mostly children, elderly, and those with asthma or cardiac conditions (Gow, 2009, p. 138).
increasing mortality speed
Respiratory and cardiovascular hospitalizations
Changes in lung function
restricted fetal growth
Extreme high levels of air pollution were cause by preexisting high levels and unfavourable weather conditions which are originally caused by the pollution (Gow, 2009, p. 138).
Air pollution levels in the future climate depend what the effect of the climate change on ozone concentrations under specific situations (Nordic Council of Ministers, 2008, p. 18).
global warming in affect( for example in summer time its the winter/ and in winter season its the summer
Natural disasters are becoming more common and consistant
Types of natural disasters
forest fires will increase in areas where they aren't as common (locations much further away from the equator)
Individuals with respiratory defects will have to either wear smoke masks when outdoors or stay mainly indoors
Increased flooding than normal caused by tsunamis or hurricanes
Chances of more active volcanos to occur or even erupt
winds will become more stronger and faster, causing tornados
Tornado bunkers will be created all across the world as they become more common in all areas
Individuals will begin hoarding basic necessities resulting in food shortages in grocery stores
More homes will be destroyed annually resulting in more individuals to lose their homes
Homes will have to be built with reenforced steel or stronger sidings to withhold extreme weathers
Prices of home will go up due to more expensive materials beings used to build them
More individuals will not be able to afford housing resulting in financial aid being needed (Gow, 2009, p. 2-3).
Constant release of methane gas
Pacific garbage patch 1.6 million square kilometeres large
Plastics harm ocean life such as plastic nettings, plastic straws, plastic bags etc.
Disaster risk reduction- This methods measures and predicts disaster risk, by doing so this can reduce existing exposure and hazard (Thomas, 2017, p. 31).
Disaster risk management- Process for designing, testing and evaluating strategies and policies for disaster risk reduction (Thomas, 2017, p. 31).
Mitigation of disaster risk- The reducing of serious impacts of hazards, including human caused by actions that reduce hazard, exposure and vulnerability (Thomas, 2017, p. 31).
Mitigation climate change- Human interventions which will reduce GHG and enhance the sinks of them (Thomas, 2017, p. 31).
Adaptation- The process of individuals having to adjust to more environmentally friendly ways of living
Climate affected by agricultural practices (Bianca Rana)
Automatic irrigation controllers that sense when the crop has absorbed its full capacity of water (reduce in waste waster (Angelo, Corrales, & Iglesias, 2019, p. 2).
Smart Water Application Technology measures the amount of moisture in the crop allowing consistent replenishment with out the waste of excess water
(Angelo, Corrales, & Iglesias, 2019, p. 2).
Rainwater collection system so it can be used to wash salts off of the soil (Angelo, Corrales, & Iglesias, 2019, p. 2).
Vertical farming (planting on levels and building up rather than horizontally)
Data collection of the crops state and environment around it to ensure a balanced watering schedule and how the cells of the crop are growing (Angelo, Corrales, & Iglesias, 2019, p. 2-3).
Government laws on the amount of GHG that can be releases onto the air.
Penalties for those who break the laws such as fines or jail time
Educational programs for all beginning agricultural workers to properly reduce soil manure waste and enteric fermentation gases
Programs to refresh prevention criteria for long term workers
Limited use for fertilizers to what is only needed
Human influenced GHG (greenhouse gas emissions) is the main cause of increase in temperature of the planet (Anwar, Liu, & Macadam, 2012, p. 11).
Improper use/taking advantage of the area being used by spraying it with chemicals or tother toxic pesticides
Erosion of soil that is left rotting and untreated releases harmful gases into the atmosphere
If environmentally friendly practices are followed a healthy quality of air can be achieved.
As the global temperature increases the agricultural industry will be forced to adapt as they are one of the main contributors to GHG emissions (Anwar, Liu, & Macadam, 2012, p. 378).
Efficient forms of planting crops and maintaining them without excess fertilizers will reduce the amount of methane produced
Changes in agricultural practices can be effective but, when it comes to a higher level of climate change or areas that are more susceptible to climate change other forms for. adaptations will be required (Howden & Stokes, 2015, p. 378).
The future of agriculture
Advancements in additives that are used on crops to be more environmentally friendly
Banishment of the use of gasoline powered equipment that release CO (carbon monoxide)
Smart packaging which reduces plastic wastes
Renewable energy sources (Austin Teunissen)
Increased Capacity (Folk, E. 2020).
Possibly replacing nuclear power in japan (Folk, E. 2020).
Lower costed panels (Folk, E. 2020).
More efficient energy collection (Folk, E. 2020).
Positioned to be able to supply 80% of energy by 2030 (Wood, J. 2020)
Precipitation cycle (Unwin J, 2019)
Runoff water (Unwin J, 2019)
Evaporation (Unwin J, 2019)
Overall not worth the renewable energy source due to ecological damage
Reduced fossil fuel ussage
Lower energy costs (Wood, J. 2020)
