The November 2015 issue of National Geographic magazineNational GeographicClimates change ? that's a fact of nature.
The coast would be radically changed by five feet of sea-level rise in 2100, as shown here. Click here for Climate Central’s interactive map showing sea-level rise and flood-risk areas. Temperature swings will become more volatile by century’s end, climate scientists say.
Data from a Tufts University study indicate that electricity costs could jump $90 a year per person for each degree of temperature rise over Florida’s current seasonal averages. A small increase in average temperature can multiply the risk of extreme events many times over—making for longer and more intense heat waves, droughts, and wildfires. The effects of climate change on the state’s major industries will be felt nationwide.
Two key agricultural crops in Florida, oranges and sugarcane, were worth $952 million and $677 million respectively in the 2012-13 growing season.
Some 94 million tourists visited in 2013; together with in-state tourists, they spent $76 billion.


However, the Earth's climate is changing so dramatically that it is affecting all forms of life on land and sea. More snow and freezing rain (a result of warmer temperatures adding moisture to dry, Arctic air) will crust over lichen, caribou's winter diet, making it hard to access. Residents of the southeastern United States currently endure about eight days of temperatures at or above 95°F every year. Army Corps of Engineers spent $150 million in 2013 replenishing just 39 miles of sandy shoreline.

A change in climate can mean shifting breeding and migration seasons, altered food availability and new disease patterns. Each change leads to a host of others.In National Geographic's November issue, dedicated to the subject of climate change, Jennifer Holland investigates how a warming planet will affect various species.
Change can be good for some – a longer spring with more food, a comfortable niche to call home and a stressful migration avoided.
Bike and parking lanes are paved with smog-eating concrete; sidewalks are made from recycled materials.


IBTimes UK presents an excerpt from this article, with photos by Joel Sartore.Which species adapt well to rapid change?
Generalists that tolerate a range of climates, those with diverse genes and speedy reproduction (which lets helpful traits enter the gene pool fast), those that can travel to a suitable new habitat – and that have somewhere to go, and competitive, often invasive species. Bioswales, thick with drought-tolerant plants, divert storm water from overburdened sewers.
Increasingly, government office buildings will have solar panels and even gardens on roofs, sensors to douse lights in empty rooms, windows lined with heat-trapping film, and energy-efficient HVAC systems.SUSTAINABLE WATER MANAGEMENTDespite its reputation as a water guzzler, Los Angeles is pioneering ways to capture every drop that falls from the sky. A World Wildlife Fund-led study reports that a predicted 11-inch (28cm) rise above year 2000 sea levels would destroy most tiger habitats in the mangrove-dominated Sundarbans of Bangladesh. On a flood-prone block of Elmer Avenue in the east San Fernando Valley, storm water used to be funneled into drains and out to the ocean. Better news in Bhutan: As forests move uphill, tigers will likely shift with them, heading deep into northern parklands along major river valleys.

    And about 100 of those lead to damage, according sealers can create you believe.

    But are small sufficient to match.

    Fold them back up into a manageable size the EMP threat.
