Disaster and Emergency AlertMap and Climate Change Monitoring and News

August 17, 2010

This website is a goldmine of information showing via maps and lists natural disaster events, accidents, climate effects- including weather/coral/glaciers/migrations/etc.- that are happening now or in the recent past(years).  I can’t post a copy of  any of the maps to give an example;  you will have to go to the site to see for yoursel f- it might require that you have Google map capability. 

This is from the Emergency and Disaster Information Service – EDIS of Hungary.  Below is the Heading of the master link page giving you an idea of their intent:

“Nothing happens unexpectedly, everything has an indication,
we just have to observe the connections.”

From their Introduction page:

Frustrated because a friend or colleague says global warming is the future’s problem?

Compelling new evidence demonstrates that global warming is already under way with consequences that must be faced today as well as tomorrow. The evidence is of two kinds:

  • Fingerprints of global warming are indicators of the global, long-term warming trend observed in the historical record. They include heat waves, sea-level rise, melting glaciers and warming of the poles.
  • Harbingers are events that foreshadow the impacts likely to become more frequent and widespread with continued warming. They include spreading disease, earlier spring arrival, plant and animal range shifts, coral reef bleaching, downpours, and droughts and fires.

The RSOE EDIS Climate Change Monitoring Services is taking steps to bring this evidence to the public’s attention, with the goal of building support for action to reduce the heat-trapping gas emissions that cause global warming. We have developed – and always updated – a world map, viewable online and also available as an Online Maps, that shows where the fingerprints and harbingers of global warming have occurred in recent years. By showing the local consequences of climate change, it brings the message home effectively.
