Estimate the cost required to prevent heat stroke due to global warming

As global warming progresses, people around the world will work in a hotter environment. Longer breaks are needed to prevent heat stroke, which reduces productivity. A research group at the National Institute for Environmental Studies and the University of Tsukuba said that if global warming progresses without taking measures to reduce carbon dioxide, the productivity lost to prevent heat stroke will be lost to prevent heat stroke in the world’s gross domestic product (2100). It has been announced that it will reach 4% of GDP). The amount of loss is comparable to the cost required for aggressive measures to curb global warming.This research is characterized by realistic calculations that take into account how much air conditioners will become widespread according to the economic developmen...

Grain damage due to global warming is 5 trillion yen annually

Global warming is directly linked to the yield of crops we feed on. In particular, I am wondering how much damage has already been caused by global warming to grains that are widely eaten all over the world, such as corn and soybeans. According to a paper recently compiled by a research group led by Toshinao Iizumi, a senior researcher at the Agricultural Environmental Change Research Center, the amount of damage to corn, wheat, and soybeans alone has reached nearly 5 trillion yen annually worldwide. It is said that there is.It has been estimated that the ongoing global warming has reduced global corn and wheat yields by a few percent compared to assuming no warming. However, the studies so far have mainly focused on the relationship between individual meteorological factors such as “tempe...

Suppressing global warming reduces the double punch of floods and droughts

Global warming does not simply mean that the temperature in our living area rises. When the temperature rises, the amount of water vapor that the atmosphere can contain increases, and for some reason, it may fall as rain or snow at once. Flood and drought patterns can also look different than they are today.The world is now aiming to keep the average temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius, preferably 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to before the Industrial Revolution, when carbon dioxide, which causes global warming, was not emitted much from our lives. .. This is the goal set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its 2018 special report. How does this 0.5 degree difference affect the risk of climate change we are exposed to? A research group led by Associate Professo...
The total damage caused by drought in the world due to global warming is estimated by NARO to be close to 18 trillion yen in 27 years.

The total damage caused by drought in the world due to global warming is estimated by NARO to be close to 18 trillion yen in 27 years.

Yields of major grains in the world, such as rice and wheat, have declined due to the effects of the drought, and the total damage amounted to about 166 billion dollars in the 27 years up to 2009, or nearly 18 trillion yen in Japanese yen. A research group of the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (National Agriculture and Food Research Organization) has recently compiled such an estimate. Droughts are expected to increase as global warming progresses, but the research group says that the methods and results estimated this time will be useful for estimating future global drought damage and for international support and countermeasures.The research group of the Agricultural Environmental Change Research Center of the Agricultural Research Organization analyzes precipitation...
