THE ALARM

The Middle East is one of the most vulnerable regions in the world to the impact of climate change, and already the effects are being seen. This year’s annual U.N. climate change conference, known as COP27, is being held in Egypt in November 2022, throwing a spotlight on the region. Temperatures in the Middle East have risen far faster than the world’s average in the past three decades. Precipitation has been decreasing, and experts predict droughts will come with greater frequency and severity. In Iraq, intensified sandstorms have repeatedly smothered cities this year, shutting down commerce and sending thousands to hospitals. Rising soil salinity in Egypt’s Nile Delta is eating away at crucial farmland. In Afghanistan, drought has helped fuel the migration of young people from their villages, searching for jobs. In recent weeks, temperatures in some parts of the region have topped 50 degrees Celsius (122 Fahrenheit). Governments across the Middle East have awakened to the dangers of climate change, particularly to the damage it is already inflicting on their economies. “We’re literally seeing the effects right in front of us. … These impacts are not something that will hit us nine or 10 years down the line,” said Lama El Hatow, an environmental climate change consultant who has worked with the World Bank and specializes on the Middle East and North Africa. “More and more states are starting to understand that it’s necessary” to act. Egypt, Morocco and other countries in the region have been stepping up initiatives for clean energy. But a top priority for them at COP-27 is to push for more international funding to help them deal with the dangers they are already facing from climate change. One reason for the Middle East’s vulnerability is that there is simply no margin to cushion the blow on millions of people as the rise in temperatures accelerates: The region already has high temperatures and limited water resources even in normal circumstances.

COMMENTARY

CLIMATE SCIENCE SAYS THAT GLOBAL WARMING STARTED EITHER IN THE 1950S OR MAYBE WAY BACK IN THE 1830S. THE ALARM ABOUT THE GLOBAL WARMING EVENT IN THE MIDDLE EAST IN THE YEAR 2022 SAYS IN EFFECT THAT IT TOOK 192 YEARS OR PERHAPS JUST 72 YEARS FOR GLOBAL WARMING TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE MIDDLE EAST. THIS LAPSE REQUIRES AN EXPLANATION IN THE ABSENCE OF WHICH IT MUST BE SEEN AS DESPERATION FEAR APPEAL ACTIVISM BY INDIVIDUALS CLAIMING TO BE SCIENTISTS AND CLAIMING TO BE CARRYING OUT SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH.

THE CREDIBILITY OF CLIMATE SCIENCE JUST KEEPS ON SLIPPING.

IT IS REACHING FOR THE GUTTER

AND THE CLOSER THEY GET TO THE GUTTER THE MORE ELABORATE AND COLORFUL THE FEAR APPEAL NEEDS TO BE.
