Global warming - India -> Ahmedabad

414 views

Published on

A presentation prepared to focus on the localized weather change. Also an effort to help people working in field/sites (like I) by showing that the amount of physical work on site/fields and effort that was put a decade ago [as constantly reminded by some of the seniors we are working with ;) ] cannot be expected in this situation anymore. Either efficiency/work or health/safety will have to be compromised. I'd prefer amount of work to be compromised. Yeah, sure, the obvious answer is, recruit more people, create more teams.

Global warming - India -> Ahmedabad

  1. 1. Future readers may view IPCC reports not as landmarks of scientific inquiry, but as suicide notes from a lost civilization. - IPCC
  2. 2. CO2: A rise in concentrations from preindustrial levels of 280 parts per million (ppm) to 560ppm would thus warm the Earth by 1°C.
  3. 3. Global Warming Temperature Drought Species extinction Most corals losses Flood Increases of intense tropical cyclones Much higher sea level Predicted a 96% decline in tiger habitat in Bangladesh: leaving with 16 tigers within Bangladesh
  4. 4. Health Contaminated urban flood waters Very low ground water in Haryana, Rajasthan Diarrheal dieases Pathogens and Parasites multiply faster Katrina Hurricane caused approx. $100 billion damage. But reduction in crop along with increased health damages will be much more damaging
  5. 5. Year AvgTemperature Increase in India 2045 – 2065 2-3 °C* 2081 - 2100 3-5 °C * warmest increase being 4-5 °C Increased poverty in parts of Asia: Worsen from climate change on rice production, and a general increase in food prices and the cost of living
  6. 6. Increased poverty in parts of Asia: Worsen from climate change on rice production, and a general increase in food prices and the cost of living
  7. 7. Reduce crop production: two percent / decade $1.45 trillion of economic damage 51% reduction of wheat from Gangetic plain 200 million people Increased poverty in parts of Asia: Worsen from climate change on rice production, and a general increase in food prices and the cost of living
  8. 8. May,Year 1991 Max Temperature 40 °C Mean Temperature 33 °C May,Year 1997 Max Temperature 42 °C Mean Temperature 34 °C Present Max Temperature 45 °C Mean Temperature 37 °C
  9. 9. Katrina Hurricane caused approx. $100 billion damage. But reduction in crop along with increased health damages will be much more damaging
