Scientists considered benefit for the planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions

Scientists have calculated that the damage to the ecology of the planet can be 65% less if you manage to keep greenhouse gas emissions and the resulting global warming within stipulated by the UN Climate Conference, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

UN conference on climate change held in December 2012 in Doha (Qatar). It was decided that the human race needs to take urgent measures to keep average temperatures on the planet within two degrees Celsius over the period to 2100. Thus one of the main mechanisms must be tightly controlled, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Scientists from the University of Reading (UK) calculated that, if you can follow this pattern, environmental damage to the planet can be reduced by 20-65%.

"Our research shows that reducing global warming to two degrees can afford to reduce the environmental and economic costs to 65% due to, for example, less energy for cooling systems, as well as due to less flooding in the coastal areas of the ocean, which would bring enormous damage, "- said the leader of the study, Professor Nigel Arnell University of Reading (Nigel Arnell).

However, as noted scholar in the water industry, "environmental economy" would amount to no more than 20%, since even slight warming leads to changes in the regional "rhythms" of rainfall and hydrological regime of water bodies — rivers, lakes, and reservoirs.

To calculate these parameters, scientists took scheme in which greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale will be reduced annually by 5% since 2016. Then, based on this condition, they are using mathematical models calculated the "benign" climate scenarios and compared them to current expectations, comparing the alleged economic and environmental damage.

Site "Survival in the wild nature", glad to see you. If you come to us, it means you want to get complete information about survival in a variety of extreme conditions, in emergency situations. Man, throughout the development, sought to preserve and protect themselves from the various negative factors surrounding it - cold, heat, hunger, dangerous animals and insects.

Site structure "Survival in the wild nature" is simple and logical, selecting a specific section, you will find information. You will find on our website recommendations and practical advice on survival, unique descriptions and pictures of animals and plants, turn-based scheme to trap wild animals, tests and reviews of travel gear, rare books on survival and wildlife. The site also has a large section devoted to video on survival survivalist-known professionals around the world.

The main theme of the site, "Survival in the wild nature" - is to be ready to be in the wild, and the ability to survive in extreme conditions.

The Survival in the wild nature - how correctly to behave, it having appeared in an emergency situation. Ability to find a way out from any situation: to kindle a fire, to put traps, to prepare food, to arrange dwelling and a lodging for the night; to learn to knit knots, to clear water, to be guided by districts, correctly to choose equipment, a knife. Also you can download directories to tourists, encyclopedias survivals, video Bear Grills to Survive at any cost (Man vs. Wild).
