The local economy has decimated by the Crown, but this is only to preview Climate change could

This summer, a cruel the American Sunbelt was. In our hospitals, pain, fear and death, because abound COVID-19 Outside, standing in front of a crowd of unruly, unemployment after the deadly heat waves, the level of fast seas and the increase in peak hurricane season. But even if the virus hardness feels deliberately be there without a purpose. In South Florida, Phoenix and Rio Grande Valley – who fought COVID cases increases – citizens a vision of their future climate change offered by destroying the pathogen. Which means that we have the possibility to adapt the company and avoid the worst to come. This is because the economic devastation of the crown are surprisingly similar to what you can expect these three regions suffer if people continue to pump carbon dioxide into the atmosphere with Daredevil. The booklet of these negative effects to soften is also similar. Consider South Florida. The unemployment rate for Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in June this year hovered around 11%. Tourism – the main engine of the local economy – is almost at a standstill. People do not fly. The cruise ships are not sailing. Hotels are not sent. It is not clear when they return the more than 37 million tourists to visit in the 2018th year But it is clear that the beaches to enjoy those tourists are likely to disappear by the time the rising sea I 80. Infrastructure planners in the region are preparing for more the extra two feet of water by 2060. In this way, tourists visit South Florida, when he has no beaches? Phoenix Arizona offers another vision cloudy heat. As the cooks Wait during the summer hei├česten file Professional and human corona tests fall during burning Western day regional economy development and defense exurban administration has increased under the twin suns of delinquent mortgage payments and austerity based government . But where COVID-19 only the economy may Phoenix ground for a relatively short time, the average temperatures expected for the region should remain uncontrolled emissions of C02 looks that create a durable shock absorber. It is expected to heat an average of 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century, which could lead the outer summer temperatures rapidly threaten the health of the average person. Can Phoenix heat adaptation, or will be, in the words of Andrew Ross, “a bird on fire”? And then there’s the Rio Grande Valley was until recently one of the regions fastest growing in America in the carry trade forged between Mexico and the United States, and now the twin impact of a large outbreak crown and a direct hit from ‘hurricane Hanna cocoons arrived as a high-end category 1 storm, with winds around 90 mph. lockdowns Corona, with the interruption of trade by closing the borders between the United States and Mexico, prick unemployment coupled brought – was in June from 11% to 18.5% in the four districts that make up the Rio Grande Valley. Hospitals are near capacity and the lines for food banks are long. But the future looks even bleaker. As the population of the region – and the demand for water – it is growing, reducing the Rio Grande. In a climate changed world, stimulates challenging Agriculture and fall less often, but more intense, the infrastructure of water management. And nativism – the American side of the border increases – threatening more than 130 years of successful water cooperation between the two countries that share the river. It ‘clear that climate change is an existential threat to the economies of the three region. But what is missing are leaders who see the immediate – but temporary risk of SARS-CoV-2 as an opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime for workers idled shifts, companies and capital from sectors convicted and those who do not as they face destruction, such as renewable energy and climate adaptation. Smashing held by utility property investor on energy production in Florida with a rotatable solar roof on monopoles on a large scale could create clean energy and hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs quickly. The cost of the Phoenix metropolitan retrofitting prickly heat can be astronomical, but the exurbs area turns xeriscaped seal, transit-oriented developments, could help save lives at first sight, it is cooling, gas emissions and reduced greenhouse efficient spur investment. to solve the suffering Rio Grande Valley Water may seem a Moro seems impossible, but investment in infrastructure sighted residents that climate variability and hugs integrated binational cooperation could secure the future of the region, both by drought and hurricanes. all its total worldwide spending on resilience and adaptation to climate change to 0.38% of world GDP in 2018. From 2008 to 2015 for adaptation and capacity issues in the 10 mega-cities most affected by climate change the world has increased by 27% shortly after carbon. These markets are set to grow the Anthropocene with shock and pressure. And the pandemic – terrible as it is – it could be a turning point. And ‘lean time for the managers of these regions in their vulnerability and realize they are in a unique position to capture additional revenue of adaptation -.
