Climate change. Hollywood disaster or something else?

Climate change has become War decoration (Imikenke) a reality, and it is impossible to deny the obvious facts. Of course, there are those who talk about the fact that this has already happened many times, we simply do not remember these phenomena, and the period of observation of nature covers only a few hundred years. An insignificant period by the standards of mankind. To some extent, this is reassuring, since it seems that everything is going according to plan, you need to be patient a little and then everything will work out, it will return to normal. Unfortunately, it will not be like before in the foreseeable future, but every year will bring more and more climate surprises, and this cannot be avoided. I can’t try on the raincoat of a climate specialist, so I’ll just talk about those observations that are striking and change our lives, and often irrevocably. This material is an invitation to discussion, but not the ultimate truth.

A picture caught my eye that shows how the temperature on Earth has changed.

The calculation method is rather doubtful, since the maximum temperature was taken for each country, for example, in Russia it turns out that we reached 45 degrees throughout the country, which, of course, is not true. Believe in this picture after that does not pull, it is inaccurate, but if we talk about the rise in temperature, then this is already a proven fact, the climate is changing.

Change in temperature leads to a lot of consequences, for example, we observe around the world hurricanes, downpours, when a monthly rainfall falls within a few hours, which leads to flooding of city streets, including in regions where this has never happened or This is a phenomenon that occurs once in a hundred years. Now such phenomena are becoming habitual, and a little later they will clearly be repeated.

Humanity has built a civilization without a special margin of safety to weather phenomena, for example, in warm countries, houses are built from simple materials, they are not designed for temperature extremes, climate change. Let's take a look at Miami, Surfside. On June 24, an apartment building collapsed, according to official figures, 18 people were killed, 145 people were missing, the rubble continues to be dismantled.

An ordinary building, no disturbing signs that it might collapse unexpectedly. The official version has not yet been named, but US President Joe Biden named sea level rise as one of the options, although he made a reservation that there is no solid evidence for this version. We will hear more and more often during catastrophes various versions that the climate is to blame.

The biosphere is becoming another victim of the climate, habitats of animals are changing, threats are emerging that were previously impossible. In the Canary Islands, tourists are constantly scared of bacteria that breed in warm water and can be fatal if ingested. Considering the popularity of the islands among the British, such warnings appear annually for them and not only, but so far there are no mass outbreaks, these are just the first signs. On the other hand, over 330 elephants were found dead in Botswana last summer. An increase in temperature caused active reproduction of cyanobacteria in reservoirs, and the lack of rain increased the concentration of dangerous bacteria to a maximum. As a result, the animals died from poisoning. And there are more and more such stories all over the world every year, the climate makes everyone adapt to new inputs - flora and fauna, bacteria.

Review of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A22s 5G (SM A226B/DSN)

A niche smartphone with 5G support for minimal money - it's not even on the Samsung website, but it's sold in Russia. Compare with Galaxy A22 - is it worth the money?

Kia Picanto test. The last of the city cars

Somehow imperceptibly, almost all compact city cars left Russia, which replaced compact class sedans and liftbacks like Hyundai Solaris and Skoda Rapid. There are always two real city cars left on our market, this is the hero of our material Kia Picanto and Chevrolet Spark, along with its counterpart under the Ravon brand.

TCL TW30 MoveAudio S600 TWS headphones review

Any decent smartphone manufacturer is bound to offer their own TWS headset with them. So TCL introduced in December on the Russian market not only a flagship smartphone, but also a flagship headset. Let's see what happened ...

Despite the lack of documented observations of Earth's climate change, we have other ways to find out that something has happened on the planet. For example, Norman Newell in his works considered the theory of mass extinction, tied to fluctuations in the level of the world's oceans. At some point, theories of mass extinction of biological species began to explain this by a collision with space bodies, for example, this is the most popular version of the death of dinosaurs. But this does not explain why, using the methods of statistical analysis, we obtain information that extinctions are periodic in nature - there are small extinctions, up to 20% of biological species disappear, and there are mass extinctions, when up to 80% of species disappear (you can read the work of Jack Sepkoski, he gave impetus to the development of this theory).

It would be a mistake to believe that scenarios like in disaster films are being implemented in practice, rather, we are faced with gradual climate changes that hit the weak points of our technologies. What becomes a weak point? Offhand, these are natural resources, for example, TSMC is experiencing a shortage of water for the production of microcircuits, Taiwan has limited water resources. This is a typical example of an ordinary resource that seems to be publicly available, what an incredible thing - water!

But let's look at temperature fluctuations in terms of production, high and low temperatures lead to increased consumption of electricity, plants and factories are usually turned off first. Of course, if there is no accident and you can turn them off. An example of a Texas winter, when an abnormal cold caused processor factories to shut down, is the first warning of what could be next. We wrote in detail about the situation in Texas, read these materials, they vividly describe what happened there.

Climate change closes factories, prices will rise for all goods

How the climate breaks technology, closes factories and leads to higher prices for literally all electronics in the world ...

How Texas was freezing. What did people experience without light, heat and water

What did people lose, how did they survive minus twenty degrees in their homes without electricity. First-person story…

But the weather can give out not only cold days, overheating is also possible in summer, there is exactly the same solution to the issue - a power outage at a number of consumers.

Remote shutdown of the air conditioner is a reality in America

Why is the energy efficiency of household appliances and electronics irrelevant for Russia, electricity in the world and in our country ...

I don't feel like croaking at all, but in the next decade, prices for personal power plants, diesel generators, which are able to provide the usual level of comfort in conditions when ordinary power lines are turned off, will skyrocket. And it doesn't matter why it happens, because of the breakage of these lines during a hurricane, abnormal weather, or something else. The cost of air conditioners and fans skyrocketed in this abnormal heat, we wrote about it the other day.

Barbecue index and mobile Internet for operators; the July heat and how it sells electronics and gadgets; Why do we forget about movies by the water?

The weather will change seasonally, it will become less predictable. Even now I can say that Moscow will have a warm autumn, a very pleasant time for walking. But in winter there will be several weeks with very low temperatures, when lines line up for heating supplies. And we are waiting for snowdrifts. And it will not be difficult to conclude that it will sell well.

Usually, the planning period for the construction of cities and roads is tens of years, a horizon of 50-60 years is normal with this approach. But all planning is based on the invariance of the weather, the usual range of temperatures. And the old approaches will no longer work, they will become wrong.

I am sure that humanity can solve these issues with the help of technology, there is no doubt about it. But this will be very costly. Is it possible to build houses that will take into account the new inputs? Yes, you can. How will they differ in price from those being built today? Dramatically.

Let me give you another example. You all saw how water destroyed the roads in the south of the country. All these roads need to be repaired, and this is not a cheap process. Now imagine that natural disasters become a recurring phenomenon, which means that we either have to constantly patch up roads, or figure out how to make them indestructible. And this is again a question of the cost of such roads.

The climate is changing, and changing very quickly, although it seems that it is not. We need to accept that these changes can no longer be reversed and we will have to put up with them, every aspect of our lives will change. But most importantly, the cost of everything will increase significantly, since our life is not adapted to such climate changes. The cost of production will rise for any product, and many products will become scarce, read, for example, what is happening with coffee and why coffee producers are looking to the future with moderate pessimism. Hunger for most of humanity is still not in danger, but we will have to give up many things that we consider comfortable.

Outside the window, after 32 degrees, a thunderstorm rumbles, a downpour covered Moscow. There is nothing unusual in this, he brought coolness. The stormwater can't cope with it, the cars are floating. The city is hastily trying to modernize storm water in places where it causes the greatest difficulty. These are funds that were not planned, these are additional expenses. And this is another illustration of what kind of war with the weather of attrition our budgets enter - and this is both state and our personal money. Everyone will decide the issue on their own, but this is just an attempt to adapt to new conditions, we will not be able to radically change them. The sooner we realize this and begin to prepare for these changes, think through the necessary steps, the better. It will have to be done sooner or later anyway. Or is it all horror stories and we will live as before? What do you think about this? Does it seem to you that the climate is changing, or does it need to solve completely different life tasks?

Finally, I would like to recommend a book that contains facts about how the climate is changing and what it can lead to. I recommended this work several times, where, without excessive emotionality, data are presented that fit into a single picture.

During catastrophes, we will hear more and more often versions that the climate is to blame.

The biosphere is becoming another victim of the climate, habitats of animals are changing, and threats are emerging that were previously impossible. In the Canary Islands, tourists are constantly being terrified of bacteria that thrive in warm water and can be fatal if ingested. Considering the popularity of the islands among the British, such warnings appear annually for them and not only, but so far there are no mass outbreaks, these are just the first signs. On the other hand, over 330 elephants were found dead in Botswana last summer. An increase in temperature caused active reproduction of cyanobacteria in reservoirs, and the lack of rain increased the concentration of dangerous bacteria to a maximum. As a result, the animals died from poisoning. And there are more and more such stories all over the world every year, the climate makes everyone adapt to new inputs - flora and fauna, bacteria.

Review of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A22s 5G (SM A226B/DSN)

A niche smartphone with 5G support for minimal money - it's not even on the Samsung website, but it's sold in Russia. Compare with Galaxy A22 - is it worth the money?

Kia Picanto test. The last of the city cars

Somehow imperceptibly, almost all compact city cars left Russia, which replaced compact class sedans and liftbacks like Hyundai Solaris and Skoda Rapid. There are always two real city cars left on our market, this is the hero of our material Kia Picanto and Chevrolet Spark, along with its counterpart under the Ravon brand.

TCL TW30 MoveAudio S600 TWS headphones review

Any decent smartphone manufacturer is bound to offer their own TWS headset with them. So TCL introduced in December on the Russian market not only a flagship smartphone, but also a flagship headset. Let's see what happened ...

Despite the lack of documented observations of Earth's climate change, we have other ways to find out that something has happened on the planet. For example, Norman Newell in his works considered the theory of mass extinction, tied to fluctuations in the level of the world's oceans. At some point, theories of mass extinction of biological species began to explain this by a collision with cosmic bodies, for example, this is the most popular version of the death of dinosaurs. But this does not explain why, using the methods of statistical analysis, we obtain information that extinctions are periodic in nature - there are small extinctions, up to 20% of biological species disappear, and there are mass extinctions, when up to 80% of species disappear (you can read the work of Jack Sepkoski, he gave impetus to the development of this theory).

It would be a mistake to believe that scenarios like in disaster films are being implemented in practice, rather, we are faced with gradual climate changes that hit the weak points of our technologies. What becomes a weak point? Offhand, these are natural resources, for example, TSMC is experiencing a shortage of water for the production of microcircuits, Taiwan has limited water resources. This is a typical example of an ordinary resource that seems to be publicly available, what an incredible thing - water!

But let's look at temperature fluctuations in terms of production, high and low temperatures lead to increased consumption of electricity, plants and factories are usually turned off first. Of course, if there is no accident and you can turn them off. An example of a Texas winter, when an abnormal cold caused processor factories to shut down, is the first warning of what could be next. We wrote in detail about the situation in Texas, read these materials, they vividly describe what happened there.

But the weather can give out not only cold days, overheating is also possible in summer, there is exactly the same solution to the issue - a power outage at a number of consumers.

Remote shutdown of the air conditioner is a reality in America

Why is the energy efficiency of household appliances and electronics irrelevant for Russia, electricity in the world and in our country ...

I don't feel like croaking at all, but in the next decade, prices for personal power plants, diesel generators, which are able to provide the usual level of comfort in conditions when ordinary power lines are turned off, will skyrocket. And it doesn't matter why it happens, because of the breakage of these lines during a hurricane, abnormal weather, or something else. The cost of air conditioners and fans skyrocketed in this abnormal heat, we wrote about it the other day.

The weather will change seasonally, it will become less predictable. Even now I can say that Moscow will have a warm autumn, a very pleasant time for walking. But in winter there will be several weeks with very low temperatures, when lines line up for heating supplies. And we are waiting for snowdrifts. And it will not be difficult to conclude that it will sell well.

Usually, the planning period for the construction of cities and roads is tens of years, a horizon of 50-60 years is normal with this approach. But all planning is based on the invariance of the weather, the usual range of temperatures. And the old approaches will no longer work, they will become wrong.

I am sure that humanity can solve these issues with the help of technology, there is no doubt about it. But this will be very costly. Is it possible to build houses that will take into account the new inputs? Yes, you can. How will they differ in price from those being built today? Dramatically.

Let me give you another example. You all saw how water destroyed the roads in the south of the country. All these roads need to be repaired, and this is not a cheap process. Now imagine that natural disasters become a recurring phenomenon, which means that we either have to constantly patch up roads, or figure out how to make them indestructible. And this is again a question of the cost of such roads.

The climate is changing, and changing very quickly, although it seems that it is not. We need to accept that these changes can no longer be reversed and we will have to put up with them, every aspect of our lives will change. But most importantly, the cost of everything will increase significantly, since our life is not adapted to such climate changes. The cost of production will rise for any product, and many products will become scarce, read, for example, what is happening with coffee and why coffee producers are looking to the future with moderate pessimism. Hunger for most of humanity is still not in danger, but we will have to give up many things that we consider comfortable.

Outside the window, after 32 degrees, a thunderstorm rumbles, a downpour covered Moscow. There is nothing unusual in this, he brought coolness. The stormwater can't cope with it, the cars are floating. The city is hastily trying to modernize storm water in places where it causes the greatest difficulty. These are funds that were not planned, these are additional expenses. And this is another illustration of what kind of war with the weather of attrition our budgets enter - and this is both state and our personal money. Everyone will decide the issue on their own, but this is just an attempt to adapt to new conditions, we will not be able to radically change them. The sooner we realize this and begin to prepare for these changes, think through the necessary steps, the better. It will have to be done sooner or later anyway. Or is it all horror stories and we will live as before? What do you think about this? Does it seem to you that the climate is changing, or does it need to solve completely different life tasks?

Finally, I would like to recommend a book that contains facts about how the climate is changing and what it can lead to. I recommended this work several times, where, without excessive emotionality, data are presented that fit into a single picture.
