ISTAT PHOTOGRAPH Climate change: The warmest city here!

ISTAT Pictures of climate change By exposing temperatures in major Italian cities. Temperatures are rising everywhereFrom Italy from north to south, And it seems to be just the beginning. The most worrying thing is going towards the threshold which will mark any return route.

In fact, if the temperature were exceeded 1.5 degree threshold (Threshold established by Treaty of Paris On climate) we can no longer escape. But there is more. Now this risk may not be so unattainable.

In every city, we see, There were about 2 big increases. We don’t forget the record set last summer, with A peak of about 45 in Sicily, And so on. The seas and oceans are also warming and rising Inevitably climate change, like a chain reaction. Just the cat chases its own tail.

Due to rising temperatures, many cities have already tried Vertical garden and forest design, But it is clear that all this will not be enough. Even the emergence of conflict and war is not good for the climate: they make a contribution The level of CO2 in the air is increasingDestruction of flora and fauna and destruction and pollution of seabed.

But let’s see Details published by ISTAT.

ISTAT – Temperatures in major Italian cities released: All capitals at risk!

Great metropolis and all Great capital Real hotspots in the region, hot spots, where, especially during the season, temperatures can reach real records can be considered. The last record was reached in 2021 in SicilyWhere some towns have reached the summit of Ben 45: Open stove!

In 50 years Mercury registered a 1.2 degree increase15.8 degrees average reached From 1971 to 2000. Data recorded by Istat revealed particularly high peaks in some areas of Italy.

The largest increase has been noted PerugiaWith +2.1 degrees. Even the big one Roman metropolis Has recorded growth 2 degreesFollows MilanWith +1.9 degrees, BolognaWith +1.8 degreesAnd TurinWith +1.7 degrees.

This is not encouraging news up front Climate change. As we said above, Between 2020 and 2021, Record temperatures were recorded in the summer season, above 45 degrees. Properly on a tropical night, temperatures, especially in large cities, do not drop below 20 degrees.

According to

The difference is considerable: considering only the regional capitals, the average discrepancies are +15 summer days (but Aosta gain 41, Perugia 35 and Rome 27) and +18 tropical nights (Naples gasping for 53 more nights, with Milan 34 and 33 including Catanzaro).

But ISTAT doesn’t just record Extremely hot daytime temperatures, Also record rainy days. What comes up is that in 2020 Italy faced a drought that has never been seen before, the same thing is true for 2021. Last year, in fact, was equal to the total annual rainfall recorded 661 mm.

Large rivers are particularly affected, Like Poe, Whose water is necessary for irrigating the fields along their path. Anyway, In cities, rainfall fell to -132 mm between 2006 and 2015. The most significant fall, however, has been recorded south, more accurately a NaplesWith – 423.5 mmFollows CatanzaroWith -416 mmAnd Catania, including -359.7 mm.

In recent years, however, ISTAT has recorded further declines: 11 more days without rainTo compare 2006-2015.

As the drought progresses Water distribution through municipal water networkProvincial and metropolitan cities:

The total distribution loss in 2020 was 0.9 billion cubic meters, equivalent to 36.2% of the water supplied to the network.

But what are municipalities and territories doing to compensate for this annoying problem? Many municipalities have already started Design and install urban forestry systemsOr more simply vertical forests, or even gardens in condominium and large buildings.

The city green is very useful for mitigating the extremely high temperatures of the summer season, but obviously it does not work to combat the effects of climate change. To be successful, state governments need much more sophisticated policies, e.g. Carbon taxIts purpose is to punish those who polluteThe polluter pays!

International treaties and policy of change of power

The problem of climate change needs to be addressed now. Last week, Many young people did not just take to the streets against the warAgainst climate change and in support of energy change policy.

Many opponents of the conflict say that this is the reason Sick attachment to economic interests This Energy models that should no longer be carried. Why did the Italian government, for example, have to wait for the emergence of a European conflict to speed up the bureaucracy of various projects aimed at transferring power?

A question we all ask ourselves and the answer to which we already know. Renewable investment is not successful. Many oil and gas multinationals are pushing for these projects to be implemented as soon as possibleOr at least until the source is finished.

But, unfortunately, the planet Earth is not waiting for our economic time. Everything is very fast now: globalization, as well as climate change. But the states were not inactive. Just inside 2015The famous Paris Agreement on Climate Change was signed, one of the first international treaties on climate change.

The Paris Agreement marks a dividing line between words and deeds. From that moment on, the states began to get serious. It actually plans to achieve decarbonization, With the long-term goal of tackling climate changeAnd a flexible structure based on the contributions of individual governments.

According to

Signing governments have promised to limit temperature rise below 2 ° C above pre-industrial levels, with efforts to stay within 1.5, C, as soon as possible to reach maximum emissions and reach carbon neutrality by the middle of the second century.

But from 2015 to 2021 So many things have been put on hold At times, states have had to reaffirm their commitment to achieving global carbon neutrality by 2050.

Precisely for this reason, on the famous occasion Friday for the futureFamous workers Greta Thamberg Repeated inertia and “Talk, talk and talk“It simply came to our notice then.
