However, a study conducted by a team of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Princeton University, found no evidence encouraging. According to research, high-intensity storms and their violent floods will happen in time windows much smaller than a century.
Editor’s Note Project Portal: The intelligences of other worlds Partner Portal Project for over ten years has been warning, through the president of the Project Portal, Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira, and most recently contacted by more than 1,500 on the increase disasters around the world, and this is a cyclical event and thus has ocorrereu on Earth at other times as the record books of geography, history and science. The researchers warn that the Portal Project is not the end of the world and that this will not occur, but the increase in weather events such as storms, windstorms, earthquakes, volcanic activity and solar that will affect peoples and continents. Now, the MIT team supports this possibility of increased catastrophic events that, according to researchers at the Project Site, will intensify in 2012, reaching its apex in 2014 and extending until 2018, then decreasing. The recommendation is for people to prepare by storing food, water and medicines. If nothing happens, the products can be consumed later, but at least there was a preparation that can help those who need these items. The MIT study refers to New York, but this situation can occur in different cities, just take stock of the events that are already occurring in many parts of the world.
The researchers used the city of New York as an example of analysis. On average every 500 years, the city is subject to floods that exceed three meters in height. The team combined four weather patterns with samples of specific hurricanes. The models then generated 45,000 types of storms within a radius of 200 km of the island of Manhattan.
Then the models were subjected to two possible scenarios. The first, current, represented the atmosphere between 1980 and 2000, while the second used the predictions to come between the years 2081 and 2100. Such estimates, according to MIT, were based on data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on emissions of carbon dioxide.
The conclusion is that with global warming, floods that exceed the mark of two meters must be allowed to happen every three to 20 years. While every 25 and 240 years, it is possible that the water level to easily reach to three meters.
Currently, the dikes of Manhattan are only 1.5 meters tall. That is, in any of the two scenarios provided by the team, it is possible that New York be underwater. The team leaves the alert and emphasizes that the results obtained can be used by authorities to minimize impacts of high intensity storms can bring to a region.
