Reverse Climate Change – Arizona HVAC Company Reflects on the Global Challenge

Climate Change on a Crowded PlanetAmerican Cooling and Heating Announces New Entry In the Global Warming Series – Reviewing Current Efforts To Reverse Climate Change

“Words from Berlin suggest that a modest global investment in alternative energy resources can keep global warming in check. But what is the actual definition of “modest?” local American Cooling and Heating tech manager.

Due to increasing interest in global warming and the associated effects in climate change, American Cooling and Heating has determined to help expand public awareness of current discussions and concepts. This press release is one of several in the ACH Global Warming series.

A Global Effort To Reverse Climate Change

According to the UN Climate Change Panel, quick action can restrain the cost of managing global warming. Immediate changes to the process of how energy is manufactured can be accomplished within a reasonably modest price range. But IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri makes perfectly clear that the solutions must involve immediate and decisive action. The tools are at hand. Climate change can be reversed and without a major disruption of world economic systems. But today is the day for action.

Consisting mainly of CO2, the buildup of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere comes mainly from the burning of fossil fuels. In the power sector, the use of coal has increased by 2.2 percent per year between 2000 and 2010. And the problem of Global Warming generates a catch-22 environment. As the global heat index rises, so too do the demands for air-conditioning and other cooling services, all of which require electrical energy as a power source.

Unless the world takes additional and appropriate measures, containment of emissions will continue to become more difficult. According to the IPCC panel, by the year 2100 the world will endure a 5 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit increase in temperatures.

The greatest part of the balancing load falls upon governments and energy providers. According to the IPCC, shifting energy resources from fossil fuels to low-carbon or zero-carbon resources can reduce the growth of power consumption by around 0.06 percentage points per year. It is a modest consumption rate that will work. Alternative sources for renewable energy include solar and wind power devices. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says that anything entailing a near quadrupling of low-carbon energy supply lines is welcome as a global economic opportunity. The IPCC is not calling for major changes. As mister Pachauri has stated in other news reports, “The loss in consumption is relatively modest.”

Opposite Views On Reversal of Climate Change Don’t Change Common Sense

Now the IPCC predicts a large-scale change in the fossil fuel investment quarter, a change that will drop by $30 billion annually even as investments in low-carbon resources expand by nearly $150 billion. And none of this takes into account the estimated $336 billion increase in energy efficiency applications that apply to the building, industrial and transport sectors.

On the other hand, oil and gas companies project a different viewpoint. So far as Exxon Mobil is concerned, adjusting for climate change is unlikely to greatly influence the sell of fossil fuels in any foreseeable near future (1).

Even in the Berlin climate change meeting, a dispute disrupted the flow of the discussion. Even as the evidence of climate change becomes indisputable, issues of cause, effect and management continue to trouble the “big” names in the discussion. Yet one matter remains primary on the board. According to the IPCC, time is running out, not for solutions but for cost-effect solutions. President of the Natural Resources Defense Council, Frances Beinecke, says that the solution “… requires decisive actions to curb carbon pollution — and an all-out race to embrace renewable sources of energy. History is calling.”

Summer heat can trigger asthma attacks, migraine headaches and even dehydration. Climate change is raising the heat ceiling and forcing a global increase in the use of heating and cooling equipment. To learn more about the American Cooling and Heating global warming series, click here.

Global Warming and Human Settlements in Urban Areas – An ACH Review of the 2014 WGII AR5 Final Draft

Global Warming Plot Of NASA GISS DataArizona HVAC Service Center, American Cooling and Heating, Presents a Review of the Risks, Vulnerabilities and Impact of Climate Change on People Who Live In An Urban Community

“To simplify the WGII AR5 final draft summary on global warming, think three categories of impact: 1) Resources, 2) Human Settlement and 3) Human Health. In this release of the American Cooling and Heating global warming series, we focus is on how climate change affects human settlements in urban environments,” ACH Phoenix data team.

For urban residents, global warming presents increasing risk factors associated with accumulated regional vulnerabilities and the economic conditions linked to those vulnerabilities. This release of the American Cooling and Heating global warming update highlights some of the problems, some of the possible solutions and some of the current effects that climate change has imposed and will continue to impose upon people who live in urban environments. For sake of a condensed presentation, all urban regions are grouped as one with no included adjustments for site size, characteristics or financially viable conditions

Preliminary Disclosure: The contents of the Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability report include the complete scientific and procedural evaluation of global warming data. Delivered in March of 2014 by the Working Group II global warming task force, the 2013 WGII AR5 IPCC Fifth Assessment Report is not yet approved in detail (1). However, the 38th Session of the IPCC has accepted the report along with the general statements of how global warming affects:

** Natural and managed world systems and world resources
** Matters of human health and human security
** AND Human settlements, including the industries and infrastructures within those settlements.

Urban Climate Adaptation Versus Urban Climate Change and the Associated Risks

Better than half of the world’s population resides, builds and works within urban communities (2). Global greenhouse gas emissions are an undesirable by-product of such tight-knit regions. Rapid growth in urban cities, especially in the low-to-middle income countries, generates an increase in vulnerable human settlements at risk of extreme weather change.

The situation can be somewhat controlled by effective governmental management of infrastructure, managed land-use and development of a strong ecosystem, but the risks factors continue to grow. Building reliable resilience while also enabling sustainable urban development demands leveraged support of climate change adaptation. A support that does not always deliver a resource-efficient solution to the growing problem of global warming and the associated climate changes hinders the resilience of the project.

The internal composition of most cities revolves around an inter-dependent system than can be managed but that can also be limited by medium confidence in limited submitted evidence. But when the evidence mounts and the management system delivers assurance of co-benefits, a powerful rise in support follows. The urban community suddenly realizes a resource-efficient method for addressing global warming and the associated climate changes.

As the risks associated with global warming increase, the negative impacts on human settlements, human health and local economies accumulate. Sea levels rise. Storms surge. Flooding, landslides and water scarcity are commonplace. Air pollution, drought and heat stress drive up the costs of air filtration, water supplies and even home air conditioning. Excessive energy consumption becomes the norm. According to the 2014 WGII AR5 Final Draft, by the year 2100 the cost of air conditioning will increase energy demands by up to 30-fold (2).

Changes in the climate impact almost every range of urban infrastructure, including sanitation and drainage, energy and water resources, transportation, and communication. Is the services arena, urban dwellers can expect a rise in risk factors associated with emergency services and personal health care response times. From economic stress factors to household well-being, the methods or managing urban communities will play a major role in future balance of the environmental and ecosystem services of the world.

For individuals, climate change affects multiple areas of life, including individual and family assets, personal health, and the methods of maintaining a decent livelihood. Yet in the human settlements that lack in essential services and infrastructure, provisions for adaptation are limited and the risks factors are explosive.

But all is not gloom and doom. Urban communities can adapt and it begins now. Every city can increment steps that lean toward a sustainable alignment with risk governance. From the private sector to the power of local and community governmental resources, the opportunities for immediate action is possible even if not currently realized in practice. It begins with a strong urban government that is capable of assessing and integrating a local regulatory framework that generates local support and confidence. It requires planning, design and allocation of resources and manpower. And it needs to be processed in incremental and transformative solutions that further increase the urban confidence in adaptation outcomes.
