The face of our planet is relentlessly changing due to constant climate change. In addition to the evolution of the animals of the future, the shape of the planet will also undergo drastic changes. He experimented with a mixture of science and art, in a mixture of hypotheses, scientific data, and illustrations. Anticipate the world of the future.
To make these predictions, the researchers analyzed three types of trends regarding Advanced weather conditions. These settle into three types of emissions: low, medium and high, and you expect such changes up to 2500.
The research team evaluated itImpact of weather conditions on the world’s population, which, with a gradual increase in temperatures, will be subject to the phenomena of heat stress, reduced productivity and biotic changes in soil exploitation and vegetation, which will increasingly acquire a tropical character.
to me Scientists SimulationFor the low emissions scenario, the result would be “ideal” and in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement, i.e. below 2°C.
For the high emission scenario, the Temperatures will continue to rise 2.2°C in 2100 and 4.6°C in 2500. In this case, the researchers suggest “Significant change in the world’s biomes‘, with the loss of the Amazon rainforest, changes in crop types, habitable areas, and unsustainable tropical temperatures.
To bring to life the scenarios announced by the scientists’ data, we think of artist and editor at the University of Leeds in England, James McKay, who created A series of paintings depicting some modern landscapes and their fate in the year 2500.
Going beyond pure science fiction and startling speculation, the The artist’s work tends to have a more “realistic” connotation., although some technologies, which are still in their infancy and which may find effective development in the future, are well represented in the illustrations. “We wanted to show people things they could learn: drones, robots, and hybrid systemsChristopher Lyons of McGill University in Montreal suggests.
The purpose of the graph is Translate scientific research data in a more understandable way and guidance, as far as possible, to evoke the sense of urgency needed to address the changes that await future generations. Without forgetting the skill that distinguishes a person even in the most difficult situations:Incredible ability to adapt to adverse conditions.
Below, we suggest some images, produced by artist James McKay, that represent the earlier and later environments that are familiar today and that in the future may appear as real. Alien Worlds review.
Two photos show a farm field in the Midwest of the United States (right), which in the 25th century could have been turned into a field. A subtropical agricultural region with an “alien” appearance(Left), Equipped with high-tech irrigation systems to counteract the intense heat.
The root appears in the second pair Changing a rural and agricultural area in India(Right) Cooling clothing and helmets will be required for outdoor operations to withstand the heat generated by the 4.6°C rise (left).
By the way, have you ever wondered what the Earth would be like today without humans?
