If major efforts are not made to reduce carbon emissions, the Twin Cities may be a model of Kansas City in 60 years.
It looked at two cases that the climate could have in Quadrages – the weather should be more like Des Moines, Iowa, but in the other case, more severe, d & # 39; It could be like Kansas City.
But the current rate of such emissions is that the Earth is of course go over The most severe case, according to the research.
It may be a good idea for anyone who loves a warmer weather, since Kansas City is at least 16F warmer in winter than the Cities Limited, but it's 38.5 percent wetter.
It would be more still in Duluth, which is most like Oregon, Ohio (it is a city in Ohio) where 14F winter is warmer and 122.5 percent wetter.
The study looked at 540 cities to see what they would like about 2080 and put them on an interactive map you can come here.
This is where the Minnesota cities would be included as 60 years if current trends do not change.
Minneapolis-St. Paul: It would be more like it Kansas City, and its 16F winter warmer and 38.5% more moist. Its samples would be 6.5F warmer and 8.9% more moist.
Duluth: It seems close Oregon, Ohio in 2080, with warmer 6.5F samples and 8.9% moisture, and 13.9F warmer and 122.5% wetter in winter.
Mankato: I want to be more Salina, Kansas, where 9.3F summers are warmer and 12.1% drier, and winter 16.1F is warmer and 6.6% more moisture.
St Cloud: More like Lansing, Kansas, with samples of 6.8F would be warmer and 15.2% more moist, and a winter 18.1F would be warmer and 59% more moist.
Rochester: By 2080 it would be like Atchison, Kansas, where 7.4F symbols are warmer and 7.5% more moist, and winter 14.4F is warmer and 24.4% more moist.
As shown by Los Angeles Times, a significant loss of invasive species, pests and diseases may result in a severe cold loss in winter, and may have a negative impact on food production.
This is what happened to experts in the University of Minnesota, who told a panel of state law makers last month Minnesota's winter is at a rate of 13 times faster than summer, and if the trend would continue, it would have serious consequences on the agriculture and biodiversity of the state.
"We feel that emissions throughout the 21st century will rise, the average of the North American urban areas will come to an end, a contemporary environment seems to be 850 km (500 miles) away and mainly to the south, with the distance, direction, and the same size as the best change of output by region and assumptions for future communications, "said Communications of Nature.
