Warming will wash the Middle East conflict from the Earth

Canadian "International Management Institute of Development" published a report on the prospects of global warming in the Middle Vostoke.Doklad said: "Rising temperatures, increased tension: The risk of conflict in the Middle East."

The report examines the consequences that global warming will result in Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Syria and Lebanon.

The report states that Near East now is the region with the greatest water scarcity in the world. In most countries, the demand for water exceeds the available reserves.

Rising temperatures and changing (shortening) the rainy season also exacerbate the problem, and can lead to a series of regional conflicts — "water wars."

Moreover, the fact that the whole policy of the region woven from long-standing and new conflicts makes it impossible to simply co-operation at the international level, without which the fight against climate change is impossible.

The Jordan River in the next hundred years obmeleet and lose up to 80% water, the Euphrates — up to 30%.

Sea level rise due to global warming threatens flooding in Lebanon, Syria, Israel and Gaza.

Most of the industry is concentrated in the Lebanese coastal zone, the likelihood of flooding in the area. The rise of sea water threatens at least brining underground freshwater sources in Israel and Gaza.

Less fresh water and more heat means the decline in agricultural production. Local production can not meet the needs of the growing population, which may be an additional source of conflict.

Climate change could also hit one of the most important industries in the region — tourism, which in turn, will reduce government revenue and cause further social unrest.

The authors conclude their review dismal conclusion, in which the international organizations to provide the countries of the region all the necessary support for the development of mutual trust and a joint front against adverse climatic changes.
