Climate scrap: what brings Russia a change in familiar weather

And again about the abnormal weather in Russia. In the yard is the end of January, and in the Leningrad Region, where snow usually lies 130 days a year, violets, crocuses and pansies open, mushrooms grow. In Crimea, in the sun, a thermometer column sometimes approaches a mark of plus thirty degrees Celsius. And this is in the middle of the traditionally harsh Russian winter!

The fact that the climate is changing right before our eyes, we already told some time ago. The winter of 2019-2020 is abnormally warm, everyone recognizes this. In many cities of Russia, January temperatures remain in positive territory, which made this month the warmest in the history of observations. What will happen to the motherland and to us?

Forecasts for the summer of 2020 are generally unfavorable. Over the first half of winter, about 10% of the average annual rainfall in the form of snow fell. February is still ahead, but if nature doesn’t catch up next month, then by spring there will be a moisture deficit in the soils, and the rivers and reservoirs will become shallow. At the same time, meteorologists promise that February will be colder. If the snow cover is not enough, then due to hypothermia, we will have problems with winter crops.

But these are far from all the negative consequences of an abnormal winter. Due to water scarcity in rivers, problems can arise with fish spawning. If there is no flood, near-water birds will suffer in the spring. Usually in the spring in water bodies insects such as mosquitoes that are unpleasant for humans begin to multiply. However, they are also food for many birds. Reducing their number will be a blow to the birds that feed on them. In turn, a decrease in the number of small birds will strike birds of prey, which also feed on rodents that live in cereal fields.

Together, this can lead to an unfavorable shift in the ecological balance, as well as contribute to a decrease in yields. But that is not all. Rapid climate change will have more serious long-term consequences.

In the future, a change in the structure of precipitation is expected. A number of studies claim that the proportion of solid precipitation, that is, snow, will be reduced. Instead, liquid precipitation and rain will occur. Moreover, the intensity of the latter will increase sharply. Instead of “mushroom rains,” Russia will soon become acquainted with real showers, which will also negatively affect agriculture. Japanese climatologist Sasai Takahiro claims:

For areas at high latitudes - such as Russia - the tendency to increase temperature is especially pronounced, therefore the likelihood that it is (here) that the amount of snow will decrease most strongly is very high.

However, the overall decrease in the amount of snow falling will be compensated in the most unpleasant way. Turning into steam, moisture, which was supposed to fall earlier in the form of snow, will subsequently collapse at once, in the form of snow storms. According to the meteorologist, in the Russian expanses this will happen in the form of real natural disasters.

    I read the article, looked into the heating bills from TGK-1 and I don’t know who to believe. Compared to last year, accounts have grown! House 137 series, relatively new, Petersburg, 2020.

      So it is you who pay for the consequences of the imposition of sanctions against the Russian Federation - it seems like "you cannot take Russia with sanctions" (according to the president), but in reality the ruble has weakened, and everything (in the equivalent of rubles) has become more expensive.

      Alexander, I don’t know about you, but in the South Urals in winter, in the gas network, they let in such obscenities as "associated gas". The fact is that it has become forbidden to burn it in the open (as it was still in the USSR - you drive past oil wells and these torches are far visible). You need to put it somewhere. You can't sell it for a hillock (this muck has a small calorie content). So they drive him to the population. In addition to the fact that more of it is required to heat the same area of ​​the room, this muck corrodes the details of boilers and gas stoves (the percentage of sulfur in it is too high), which is why complaints from the population about the smell of gas in houses and apartments began to come more often. Nobody wants to undertake processing of it - so they are driving it to their own population (there is no ban!).
      That's how our companies earn superprofits for us, chasing us all sorts of nasty things - once and tearing off the same price for this muck as for normal gas - two. Those. - in double fat, sv0l0chi.

      He moved to a new building in Samara in November. I still don’t turn on the batteries, for heating less than two hundred rubles a month for a three-ruble meter 100 meters.

    For areas at high latitudes

    - Canada is also in high latitudes, and what, there are expected the same cataclysms? Why are Canadians silent about them? And about water - forests need to be cut less, and there will be more water. And for this it is necessary to restore foresters on farms. Saving on pennies, the country is losing billions of rubles!

    I live in the Murmansk region for 68 years (born here) and don’t feel it, and I don’t see any climatic break during this time! As there were positive temperatures and rains in December-January, it remains, just as snow fell in June, and now it is falling!

    Yes, I also found a ticket for 2008 the other day.

    However, the overall decrease in the amount of snow falling will be compensated ... in the form of snow storms.

    It is a pity that this pearl was not in the first paragraph. Then one could not read further.

    Extremely unbalanced text because it only broadcasts about negativity, which in its stated form is simply unbelievable. Yes, a warm and little snowy winter. Yes, there is a chance of drought. Let's see what happens in the spring and in June - July. In short, the author croaks in vain.
