2:06 am
which supplies water to some 40000000 people across 7 us states and to communities in northwestern mexico, less water from the colorado river is also raising longer term concerns in both the us and mexico over potential food shortages. if action is not taken to address the crisis, monroe's up, hello al jazeera, mexico city. scott callous isn't atmospheric scientists at all. gone, national, laborious rejoins with lie from clarendon hills. illinois, thank you for joining the program with highlighted that just some of the extreme weather events we've seen around the world this year in your experience, is this some of the worst weather we've seen? well let's it consistently getting worse, especially in places you saw there like arizona and places that really depend on phenomenon weather patterns like monsoons and it all comes down to the physics of air. air is like a sponge. the warmer it gets,
2:07 am
the more moisture it can holds. so if it comes from a cool ocean sausage warms up over land, it can dry out the land. and what we wanted to do, like the floods we're actually seeing right now in new mexico and arizona is come from those wall a waters when you've got the subtly winds, then a console cup, that warm water that spawns can get laden with it and get wrong out but with climate change, as we see these shipping weather patterns, places that depend on monsoon or rains, a sin, the failures of those rainfalls we saw on your boat. and right now, right. are there certain weather events that we've seen the summer that have taken you by surprise? i mean, for example, extremely high temperatures. we have seen in europe the summer they have and it really is a car like that can in the cage. as we've seen, extremes after extremes, and that's kind of one of the things that we see in the climate simulations we run, it are gone and the department energy is, as the planet warns,
2:08 am
every degree of temperature change of warming leads to much greater extremes. so as the planet warms up globally, we see more of these heat waves and more of these flash floods. you talked about the heat wave in your but you also does hed record hail storms in central europe with 12 centimeters sized hailstones. to what extent is human cause global heating to blame for particular extreme weather we're event as opposed to the natural variability and weather patterns? that's a great question. what we're doing by woman the planet is loading the dice. so it's not that every severe storm is attributable to climate change, but we will get more severe storms, more floods, more flash droughts because of climate change. so if you're a betting person, you're going to bed that we're going to see more of these extreme events as we
2:09 am
continue to omit warming gases into the kind of 1st part of your question. how much is it a trivial the humans? it is us now people might say, the planet has warmed and cooled over centuries. and you know, they're actually right, but never dis quick, never in the scales of decades, which is what we're seeing now. it's got really good to talk to you, scott calis, atmospheric scientists at all, gone national liberty. thank you. my pleasure. ah, you and sexy, gentle antonia. good terrorist has visited ukraine, southern port city of odessa to review the shipment of grain. it's part of a tacky and you and broke a deal last month between moscow and keith, which allowed for the resumption of ukraine's grain expos, from 3 ports. several ships have left since then, including
