For GoT fans, winter is coming in April 2019.
For busy people in India…winter is here for the season.
For me, it’s coming, and whatever comes with it, it’s gonna consume the whole mankind. I repeat, the whole mankind.
Hello everyone. In this series, the term winter is both the objectification and the real situation of the disastrous future we have, because of our own mistake. “We” includes all the human race, right from the beginning.
Coming to the point, this series is regarding the consequences of global warming, climatic changes and polar ice melting. We will discuss the problem and the possible solutions in detail. For that, we have to be connected throughout the series.
SO HERE’S THE SERIES MAP.
Part 1 – Beginning of the End
Part 2 – The Sixth Extinction Event.
Part 3 – Disasters : Droughts, Floods and Winters.
Part 4 – Possible Solutions and International Achievements.
Here begins the Part 1
—–BEGINNING OF THE END—–
Are you thinking this is stereotype…? Heard a several times since childhood, that our environment is in danger and so are we. But have you ever considered how hard will it be for us ..? Can you imagine the ice in Himalayas being melt during a century, and afterwards the Northern India runs out of water…? Can you imagine the situation of Pakistani people when, by 2025, the water level is going to be almost negligible there…? Can you imagine the ultraviolet rays from sun directly hitting you and causing severe cancers and there’s no way out…? This is not an exaggeration. Sooner or later this will be the situation.
Very precisely, because of massive use and misuse of natural resources for development, factory smokes and greenhouse gases, massive deforestation in past 300 years, earth has a lack of ozone. You all know what the ozone does, so let’s not discuss here. Human has been polluting air for more than 300 years at an increasing rate. Thus, ChloroFluoroCarbons or simply, CFC have taken a big share in our environment. It stays in the air. CFC and other carbon compounds jointly do this for years. Lack of trees make them stay in the air. They consume heat and emit more, it results in increasing earth’s ocean temperature at odd times, and thus causing climatic changes and extreme climatic conditions.
So if the heat is increasing, the title should be Summer is Coming right…? Actually yes for a certain period. But winter is coming for sure. How…? Go further and read.
We are aware of some consequences of the global warming that we can notice i.e. droughts, hurricanes, floods,acid rains etc. But there’s something which a large section of society don’t even know, only a few geologists and scientists. I believe we should know it – THE GULF STREAM
Oceans have water flows inside themselves. Gulf stream is probably the biggest of those water flows. Secondly, ocean temperature decide the flow, temperature and speed of the air on earth. The Gulf Stream is a cyclic flow of hot ocean water. Starting from the Gulf of Mexico near Antarctica’s side, it heads to Western coast of Africa and Europe, all the way traveling to the northern Atlantic and Arctic Ocean. Now here is the climax. Arctic ice naturally melts and the cold water is mixed in the flow. It slows down and thus changes it’s direction to the west. It then travels to South, basically takes a “U” turn and reaches to Antarctica again, traveling through the coastal line of North and South America. You can see how the gulf stream flows in the image at the top.
Now you’ll think what’s so great in this..? Yes it is. It holds the temperature of ocean and controls clouds, air and air temperature of almost all over the world. The Gulf Stream transports nearly four billion cubic feet of water per second, an amount greater than that carried by all of the world’s rivers combine
It is because of the Gulf Stream, ice clouds are melted before they freeze. Further, gulf stream is responsible for normal weather conditions all over the world.
The Gulf Stream has a vast share in nourishment of Amazon rainforest. Amazon rainforest is responsible for monsoon of almost half of the world, including India. Basically, gulf stream is the backbone of world’s balanced climate.
Gulf Stream is being disturbed now…
Yes. Gulf Stream is being disturbed because ice shelf on Arctic Ocean is melting abnormally. Ozone layer discrepancy has lead Arctic Ice Shelf an ultimatum. Thus, far more than enough water is being mixed with the Gulf Stream in Atlantic Ocean itself. This is in the initial stage and still causing disastrous snow hurricanes in the US every year. Scientists believe that one day, this gulf stream will completely stop cycling. And whenever it stops, ocean temperature will decrease by several degrees of celcius. This will result in snowstorms all over the world. Everything will freeze. The vapour in the air will also become an ice. For almost a century at least, the Northern hemisphere of the world will suffer from an ice age. This is the winter I was talking about. Surviving this, is a very very tough course.
This will be literally a winter. But by winter, I mean other disasters as well. The ice age I stated above, is one of the strongest possibilities of the environmental disasters. Other disasters are severe droughts, lack of food grains, sinking of islands, severe hurricanes, floods and desertification. All these, we are going to have details about, in next parts. Stay tuned.
One special request, please do share this valuable information as more as you can. This is really a serious issue and we need to be known of.
Next part will be released soon
