CONSEQUENCES

Rise of Heat Waves

Human influence on climate change will fuel more extreme heat waves in US,
University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science, March 19, 2018.

"...climate change will drive more extreme summer heat waves in the western U.S., including in California and the Southwest as early as 2020."

“These are the years that the human contributions to climate change will become as important as natural variability in causing heat waves.”

"...used climate models along with historical climate data from 1900-2010 to project future heat wave patterns across the U.S. during the summer months of June through August. The climate change scenarios identified four regions where man-made climate change would be the dominate cause of heat extremes, surpassing natural climate variability."

 

We've already been experiencing long enduring droughts puncuated by torrential downpours, altered weather and seasonal patterns, dying ecosystems, and are living inside what is obviously a very damaged set of ecosytems under a critically injured climate. These are damages and injury our specific actions triggered. Actions we continue in the face of the death of Nature...

And yet we keep pushing forward the same irresponsible growth that triggered these cascading devastations of our climte and its natural environments in the first place.

 

Not just heatwaves are multiplying and amplifying. 100-year storms are intensifying and becoming more frequent as well.
