When you're older, your hometown will be different. It's true for everyone. However, it is impossible to ignore changes for people living today
We usually measure climate change in terms of rising temperatures. But scientists say there is another way to think about it: spatial displacement
In the new study, scientists say that the cities of North America are up to 2080. It basically feels like about 500 miles (800 km) from where they are now – because of the drastic changes that are happening
This is an average result based on projections from 540 cities and Canadian cities – assuming carbon emissions will remain known in current, terrible and normal business conditions.
mile trek is not just a casual turnaround in any random direction. This is almost universally oriented to the south ̵
These "Climatic Analogues", which you can look at in an interactive map created by research fellow Matt Fitzpatrick from the Maryland Environmental Science Center – "More Relative, Location-Based"
If you can actually call such swap deals that exchange almost fantastic cities, that is, Washington, DC feels more like a swampy Mississippi. New York feels more like northern Arkanso
And the Houston climate will cross
"This method can be used to translate future predictions into something we can better understand and relate to our experience," says Fitzpatrick.
"I Hope People will have that “wow moment.” For the first time, the scale of change we expect
However, with the current amount of carbon dioxide, many known transformations of events cannot be readily understood as claimed.
During the study, researchers found that there are no existing climate analogues in many parts of North America today; their predicted future weather is the dystopia we are not facing.
"In many areas of the city, we found fundamental differences between the future climate and the best of the modern climate," writes the authors. may experience new climates without a modern equivalent in the field of study.
Basically, unless we do it now, North American cities and cities are everywhere in hot spots where they really don't want to go.
Today, some of these places can be driven in your car.
However, you do not find it in your home town, do not make a mistake about it
