Tuvalu kiribati climate change to help reduce risk of extreme weather
Punaruru, New Zealand (AP) — The U.S. Department of Defense is developing a plan for climate chan실시간카지노ge adaptation that can help reduce risks of extreme weather by shifting resources to reduce risks from more localized events, according to officials familiar with the project.
In the last three years, the Pentagon has directed its staff to focus on mitigating risks from high-impact events such as extreme heat waves, drought, storms and tornadoes by shifting $2.6 billion in disaster relief payments to states to provide funding for programs focused on low-impact disasters.
Officials are examining the potential impacts of global warming and changing land use patterns, particularly in places like the tropics and subtropics. Officials want to evaluate the current state of knowledge on how climate change affects the occurrence and severity of extreme weather events across the United States in order to plan for how climate change impacts the weather in the future.
Duty-bound agencies have asked whether climate change could drive such changes.
The Defense Department said it has consulted scientists and other experts on how climate change affects weather patterns and weather systems across the country to identify factors that could drive potential changes. Among other things, officials are looking at shifts in the timing of storms and whether climate change could force changes in precipitation.
Officials say they hope the research will inform future climate change mitigation strategies and how the federal government addresses these problems.
A report from the Pentagon’s Bureau of Environmental Management shows a number of U.S. cities in extreme drought areas have the potential to see more frequent and extreme weather events that contribute to increasing food prices and other economic challenges in places like Baltimore, Miami, Phoenix and Dallas. The report shows that about a third of cities along the nation’s Central Plains and Western Intermountain range also are suffering from extreme drought. The researchers say the changes are likely more severe in the future.예스 카지노
“Extreme weather impacts are projected to rise substantially in the United States in coming decades due to changing weather, but because of the changing climate we expect that extreme weather events are occurring more frequently,” according to the report.
The new research is being done by a team of scientists from NASA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Department of Defense, as well as the Army’s Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Center.
