Catastrophe for California Seen if Climate Change Goes Unchecked
Posted by Alexander Nguyen on August 27, 2018 in Life
The San Diego region’s climate is likely to experience significant rises
in temperatures, sea level, dryness and conditions that increase
wildfire potential if climate change is left unchecked according to a
new state report published Monday
The state’s Fourth California Climate Change Assessment is the first
since 2012 and details the extreme damage and cost in both money and
lives climate change in California could cause over the next century. It
is the state’s first climate assessment with regional reports to
accompany the main report and includes a report by researchers from
Scripps Oceanography and San Diego State on the greater San Diego area.
Temperatures in San Diego are expected to increase five-to-10 degrees
and sea levels are expected to rise roughly three feet or higher by
2100. Researchers also expect precipitation events to increase in
volatility, with longer durations of drought culminating in more violent
“In California, facts and science still matter,” Gov. Jerry Brown said
on Twitter. “These findings are profoundly serious and will continue to
guide us as we confront the apocalyptic threat of irreversible climate
The most devastating result of increased climate volatility could be an
increase in large catastrophic fires according to the assessment.
General risk of wildfires is likely to increase as the climate warms,
but increases in the frequency of Santa Ana wind events and drier
autumns are likely to exacerbate the already higher risk of wildfire
Wildfire damage caused $12.6 billion in insured losses and killed 60
people in 2017 according to state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones. The
report found that the average area burned across the state by wildfires
could increase by 77 percent by 2100.
“Climate change poses a significant threat to all of us,” Jones said.
“The Fourth Assessment has brought together key leaders, experts,
agencies, and stakeholders throughout the state to understand the
evolving impacts of climate change and potential actions that can
