The past February 25, 2009 the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported that according to studies most recent demonstrated is that the polar ice caps are melting at a much faster pace than previously thought due to global warming. According to experts in the field this fact, continue like this, will bring alarming consequences to the planet and all life forms. According to observations carried out over two years, climate change has been transforming the lives of the people living in those regions, as well as the plants and animals belonging to these ecosystems. What can you say climate? Recent studies indicate that the increase in the intensity of the storms is a direct result of the decrease in polar ice. The fact that the oceans control the planet’s climate and these have suffered constant in recent years alterations is a reality.
Any change in them will undoubtedly generate a climate and economic impact in the hemispheres of the Earth. Speaking of the consequences generated by climate change include increasing floods and droughts – both contribute to contamination of supplies of water, allergies, human and animal migrations-humans looking for more Highlands and polar animal zone more cold, food crisis and proliferation of insect pests with cosecuente wave of disease that they spread. Let’s look at just one example. Due to global warming diseases caused by mosquitoes include which acquire growing relevance and dangerousness. For what reason? By mosquitoes multiply better and bite more frequently while the air is warmer. Now imagine the following: going covering heating large areas, mosquitoes will be colonizing territories previously banned, carrying with them infectious diseases. Against this background, the World Meteorological Organization stressed how important it is for the future balance of the polar regions for the future of the environment and the welfare of the human race, and invited the Nations to develop strategies to combat the melting of the polar icecaps. It is clear that the threat of global warming deserves to be taken seriously.
