global warming is expected to have a tremendous impact on the long-run, warns a researcher. These changes threaten to make the worst-hit areas of the earth uninhabitable, but also in Sweden, may be affected.
According to the american newspaper the New York Times, the risk is 60 per cent of the total population that is exposed to the at least one climate change in the future.
”by 2040 the region to be able to be in a flood. Some parts of Sweden it can also be exposed to increases in sea-level rise,” writes the New York Times, in its analysis of how all the nations of the world can be at risk to be affected by climate change.
”a False sense of security”
, Lennart Olsson, professor at the hållbarhetsvetenskap at the Lund university Center for Sustainable Studies, LUCSUS, it is not all unlikely that that's true, but that's exactly when it happens, it is not the right way to go, he thinks.
" It's a bit of a misnomer to speak of this year. There is a danger that, if we are lulled in to it is the 2040 that's happening, we get a false sense of security. It can happen at any time, but the likelihood of that happening in the year 2040, is much more than that, it happens, in 2022, for example, says Lennart Olsson.
There are risks to the shores of lake Vänern flooding, which is one of the major threats, " says Lennart Olsson. The old and worn-out hydroelectric dams, which in addition are not suited for the climate will also contribute to the risk of floods in Sweden are relatively high.
”the Probability is just higher and higher”
– We have changed the flow of the rivers, the – what we thought of when we were building ponds for more than 50 years ago has changed, and with that, we are in a situation with more precipitation and a milder climate.
it Will be even more water-risk of any dam to burst, with ”disastrous consequences,” he says.
" There is a common concept in regional planning – do not build on sites where the risk of flooding is once in a year. We are looking to the future is, perhaps, the risk is that we get a flood once every 15, 20, or 30 years of age. The probability of getting only bigger and bigger.< https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1354912148443570176Prins Charles: ”We are facing an existential threat.
