To London have predicted full flooding


London is under the threat of strong flooding because of global warming. It is said in the report of the Christian Help organization. As it is noted in the report, sea level can grow by 40 centimeters and more if as a result of global warming temperature increases by more than 1,5 degrees above preindustrial level. According to experts, because of similar climatic changes the problems which are already existing in a number of the large cities, in particular, subsidence of the soil and bad planning, will only be aggravated. So, it is noted in the document, already now the authorities of the capital of Great Britain are forced to resort even more often to use of the Barrier of the Thames — the main protection of the city against floods. If in 1984 when the dam was only constructed, she was planned to be used not more often than three times a year, then so far she is used about six-seven times a year. Besides, according to experts, flooding can threaten Houston, Shanghai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Lagos and Dhaka. Earlier in October the Chinese scientists called regions of the planet which are the most vulnerable for the droughts caused by the moderate growth of global average temperature. According to their forecasts, at excess of admissible limits access to water will decrease on all Earth. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
