Worldwide And European Politics Concerning Theclimate Changes
AbstractOne of the major concerns of our century is represented by the climate changes, a reason for which immediate and correct measures should be taken for an efficient approach of this problem, concerning costs and respecting the principle of prudence. Studies made by experts in this field concerning the climate changes have shown that during the past years there have been recorded increases of global medium temperatures of water and ocean, an extensive melting of snow and ice, together with a global increase of sea level. The climate changes affect us all, not only at global level but also at national level. In Oltenia, there have been observed unspecific phenomena for the climate of this area: the increase of the frequency of some extreme values of temperature and precipitations, extremely intense rain on small areas with catastrophic effects, an increase in the frequency of flooding, the forming of the largest flood on the Danube in April-May 2006, the increase of the maximum annual flow on the Danube. Under these circumstances, the modification of the regional and local climate conditions will influence the ecosystems, the human settlements and the infrastructure. At the same time, there has been observed that the south-eastern area of the country has been affected by a prolonged drought, which generated significant losses in agriculture, transports, electricity supply, water service, health and settlements.
