According to weather forecasters, the winter of 2019-2020. in Europe was the warmest ever recorded.
In the capital of Finland, Helsinki, the average air temperature in January and February was 6 ºC higher than the average temperature in the same months between 1981 and 2010. (In accordance with WMO recommendations, climate norms are calculated for the 30-year period 1981-2010.) In the past few years, frosts in many parts of Finland did not occur even in December, and snow had to be expected until early January. Real snowy winters are getting shorter.
Last winter in Germany became the second highest average temperature in almost 140 years – since the beginning of statistics since 1881. Only the winter of 2006-2007 was warmer.
Calendar winter in France overcame a 120-year record. Nationwide, the average air temperature exceeded the norm by 2.7º C.
For Poland, the past winter also became the warmest since the beginning of observations, that is, more than 200 years. The temperature in December, January and February rose by 4.12ºC, compared with 1981-2010. The previous record (winter 1989-1990) was broken by about 0.6º C. Most of the time, daytime temperatures did not drop below 0º C. Even at night, there were infrequent frosts.
Meteorologists from a weather station at Lavitsa Airport (Poznan) reported that over the entire winter period there was no snow cover above 1 cm thick. The same situation has developed in Wroclaw, Gorzow, Kalisz, Legnica and Torun.
The winter 2019-2020 in Russia was also considered record-breaking warm, which exceeded the winter record of 2015-2016 by 1.3º C.
Global climate change
In a consumer society, civilization has no chance. But only the unity of human society on spiritual and moral foundations and the joint actions of all people on the planet, continent, region makes it possible to survive all together in an era of global climate change.
The mistake was that many scientists of past years did not take into account the influence of the increasing acceleration of the Universe, cosmic factors, astronomical processes on the state of the global climate system of the planet. All this, of course, affects not only the Sun, but also the planets of the solar system, including such a giant as Jupiter, not to mention our planet. Global climate change on Earth is basically a derivative of astronomical processes and their cyclical nature. This cycle is inevitable. The geological history of our planet indicates that the Earth has repeatedly experienced similar phases of global climate change.
These are processes that today mankind is not able to influence, therefore their consequences, possible risks and difficulties for people in connection with future events on Earth cannot be underestimated, you need to prepare for these events. If scientists of the past made their conclusions on the basis of research and observations, in which they had to manage with limited technical means and resources of one time or another, today the scientific spectrum of possibilities has become much wider. Recent studies in the field of elementary particle physics, neutrino astrophysics, carried out by a working group of scientists from the ALLATRA International Public Movement, open up wider opportunities for promising fundamental and applied research.
To date, a sufficient number of well-known and little-known facts of the world public have accumulated, which indicate various changes on the planet that have occurred in a relatively short period of time. This includes acceleration of the movement of tectonic plates, and an increase in the rate of activity of processes, and aggravation of problems of a planetary nature, including seismic, volcanic, solar ¬ activity, a change in the Earth’s magnetic field, drift velocity of the Earth’s magnetic poles, displacement of the Earth’s axis, a change in the planet’s albedo, its orbital parameters. In addition, there is an increase in surface temperature, permafrost thawing, a decrease in the area and mass of the ice cover of land and polar seas, an increase in the level of seas and oceans, a change in river flow, the occurrence of dangerous hydrometeorological phenomena (droughts, floods, typhoons) and much more. That is, numerous facts of changes that occur in the lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere of the Earth are recorded.
Global climate change is already affecting the health, living conditions and livelihoods of people on all continents of the Earth. The observed increase in the dynamics of global natural disasters indicates that in the coming decades they will lead to catastrophic consequences on a global scale for civilization as a whole, for victims and destruction unprecedented in the entire history of mankind. Humanity inevitably approaches the peak of this phase. Today, humanity has entered the era of global climate change, and the problem of climate change can no longer be regarded as exclusively scientific. This is a complex interdisciplinary problem, covering social, economic, environmental aspects.
