Intergovernmental Panel Fact

In many places in Spain already being checked that phenomena such as strong storms increase, at the same time appear devastating hurricanes and tornadoes as vivid in Malaga, Catalonia and Cantabrian cornice. We will also check as mean values of the summer will be increasingly drier, with increased drought and therefore expansion of deserts. In fact it has predicted that many areas of the Mediterranean will become desert areas. On the other hand and as well the Potsdam Institute has predicted serious problems live with floods to occur an increase in up to 1 meter sea level. Consequences for example in a country like Egypt where 12 million people live on the banks of the Nile Delta, would have with a rise of 50 cm. they would have to move towards the interior. In Bangla Desh would be 70 million people who would be affected. In fact both the Solomon Islands and the Maldives are already taking preventive measures.

But they are Governments thinking about the health implications that these migrations will cause? In this respect a study published in the journal The Lancet claimed that in the coming decades enormous heat waves will take place in the United States and Europe, with highest levels in big cities and the consequent emergence of tropical insects. The Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel of the climate change, Pachaury, said at a press conference that the most effective measure to confront the climate change is to give up meat consumption. Made in Germany the Ministry of the environment recommended just a drastic reduction which would be a good measure to curb hunger in the world at the same time, since it seems that there was not enough food for everyone, the fact is well different, therefore the Earth gives food for 12 billion people, however a very high percentage of all global cereal crops are destined for animal feed for the animals that are consumed mainly in the first world. Meanwhile inexplicably the number of killed by hunger increased in 2008, 75 million people over the previous year. Despite this yearly breed in the world 1.3 billion cattle, they need between 7 and 16 kilos of grain and 20,000 litres of water to produce a single kilogram of beef. How many children could feed with this grain and this water? How much you still avoidable?
