Klimaforandring

Det tog ikke lang tid for medierne at kæde hedebølgen i det Rusland, der i vinter satte kulderekorder sammen med klimaforandringer/global opvarmning. Og ligeledes med oversvømmelserne i Pakistan. De mange interesseorganisationer, der vil slå politisk plat på folks ulykke henleder nogle gange tankerne på religiøse sekter, der opsøger døende ældre på hospitalerne og sagførere, der hænger ud på skadestuerne. Men vejr og klima er ikke det samme, som man kan læse i Daily Mail

A massive heatwave in Russia and the current devastating floods in Pakistan could be linked by the unusual behaviour of the jetstream, scientists believe.

The jetstream is the high-altitude wind that circles the globe from west to east and normally pushes a series of wet but mild Atlantic lows across Britain.

But meteorologists who study the phenomenon say that it is producing unusual holding patterns which keep weather systems in one place and produce freak conditions.

At least six million fish have died in three rivers of Bolivia due to the intense cold wave sweeping through the country in the past few weeks.

Authorities in the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz declared an alert following the death of fish in the Grande, Pirai and Ichilo rivers that run through the tropical region.

This is an ‘environmental catastrophe’ brought on by the lowest temperatures registered in Santa Cruz in nearly half a century, Gov. Ruben Costas told reporters.

Tillige skal tælles “thousands of alligators, turtles, dolphins and other river wildlife” ifølge Bolivia Bella, der ironisk bruger “unprecedented” om katastrofens omfang. Med den igangværende La Nina - et skift i oceanstrømmene - er den sydlige halvkugle et koldt sted ifølge Bloomberg

Argentina is importing record amounts of energy as the coldest winter in 40 years drives up demand and causes natural-gas shortages, prompting Dow Chemical Co. and steelmaker Siderar SAIC to scale back production.

Electricity supplied from Brazil and Paraguay rose to a daily combined record of about 1,000 megawatts on July 12, while consumption peaked at 20,396 megawatts three days later, according to Buenos Aires-based energy broker Cammesa. Shipments of liquefied natural gas are set to double this year.

Det er svært at gøre alle tilpas, men klimaets fordelingsnøgle vækker kun bekymring og overskrifter hvor temperaturen stiger.
