By 2100, the climate on 50% of the Earth may change significantly – scientists

According to forecasts, by 2100 the tropical climate will spread from 23% to 25% of the Earth’s land mass. Most of the land surface will be dry.

By 2100, almost half of the Earth’s territory may enter new climatic zones. This is stated in a study by the University of Virginia, writes Science alert.

Climate change will be so severe that maps made in the 1880s will have to be redrawn.

“By the end of the century, 38 to 50 percent of the world’s land area is expected to be in a climate zone different from today,” the scientists said.

According to them, if humanity does not reduce emissions into the atmosphere in the near future, the rate of global warming will accelerate.

Food production systems will be at risk. Mosquito-borne diseases will also spread.

Changes are expected in the cold zones of Europe and North America. Up to 89% of Europe and about 66% of North America could move to another climate zone by 2100.

“The most dramatic change will occur in the polar zone, which covered about 8% of our planet’s land between 1901 and 1930. Now it has shrunk to 6.5%. Since the beginning of the 20th century, Earth has already undergone changes in the climate classification of 14.77% of its land, with the largest changes occurring in North America, Europe, and Oceania. This result is based on previous estimates made in 2015 using climate models available at the time. They showed that in 2010, about 5.7% of the Earth’s total area had shifted to warmer and drier climate types compared to 1950.

It can be remembered that the melting of the Greenland ice sheet raised the sea level by 1.2 centimeters. This number has been achieved in the last 20 years.
