Changing of the Climate
Adaptation to climate change means humility of mankind with natural disasters, approaching catastrophe. A person, maybe, will adapt to changing conditions, but how is the rest of the living creatures? Long absence of precipitation leads to fires, desertification of terrain and extinction of biota, as well as excess moisture and floods - to flooding. The authors of the large-scale study, published in the journal Lancet, warn that in the future the frequency of such events will continue to grow, and the damage from droughts, hurricanes and floods will increase every year. According to the estimates given in the study, for the period from 2010 to 2016 the frequency of such dangerous phenomena increased by 46%. A total of 797 such events were recorded on the planet in 2016. Another important factor is the harm to the health of the population. Extreme manifestations of climate change affect the spread of infections, expose people to increased air pollution and reduce labor productivity.
