Warming Nexuses Effect on Energy Food Infrastructure

Warming Effect

November 4, 2013

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

The work to discuss the climate and global warming implications are heating as the weather effects continue to present.  The distinctive data and identification of extremes weather patterns classifying drought, storms, rain and snow are effecting overflows, storm drains, food and farms producing long-term effects on systems, economics and overall sustainability.  The news on the “Warming report sees violent, sicker, poorer future” is one outcome to be considered for analysis.

The Associated Press reported the “Starvation, poverty, flooding, heat waves, droughts, war and disease already lead to human tragedies. They’re likely to worsen as the world warms from man-made climate change, a leaked draft of an international scientific report forecasts,” post the Herald Extra.

The work The Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will issue a report next March on how global warming is already affecting the way people live and what will happen in the future, including a worldwide drop in income.”

Weather patterns are within the nexuses of energy-food-water-and-environment. These interwoven factors in the best of times produce residual effects on crops, infrastructure, facilities, power and structural. The correlation is not without precedent or understanding when climate regulates weather patterns.

“We’ve seen a lot of impacts and they’ve had consequences,” Carnegie Institution climate scientist Chris Field, who heads the report, told The Associated Press on Saturday. “And we will see more in the future.” Cities, where most of the world now lives, have the highest vulnerability, as do the globe’s poorest people.”

The cost to any dramatic effect trigger changes to the poorest or weakest. As prices climb from drought the ability to access healthy affordable foods becomes harder and problematic.

It is reported that “Climate change will exacerbate poverty in low- and lower-middle income countries and create new poverty pockets in upper-middle to high-income countries with increasing inequality. For people living in poverty, the report says, “climate-related hazards constitute an additional burden.”

The report says scientists have high confidence especially in what it calls certain “key risks”:

–People dying from warming- and sea rise-related flooding, especially in big cities.

–Famine because of temperature and rain changes, especially for poorer nations.

–Farmers going broke because of lack of water.

–Infrastructure failures because of extreme weather.

–Dangerous and deadly heat waves worsening.

–Certain land and marine ecosystems failing.

Why the nexuses effect is important is to qualify and quantify the domino effects on interrelated factors that effect sustainability and infrastructural outcomes on the short-term with long-term consequences. Consider, the effects of energy demands. The report states, “If emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of coal, oil and gas continue at current trajectories, “the combination of high temperature and humidity in some areas for parts of the year will compromise normal human activities including growing food or working outdoors.”
