Official (Predicts Disaster Says Greenhouse Effect Could Wipe Some Nations Off Map If New York 1 the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of "eco-refu-gees," threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.
He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the "greenhouse effect" before it goes beyond human control. 4 irt iti' 'i-i Wttnu By Peter James Spielman Associated Press UNITED NATIONS A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of A HAIRWAVE IM YOUR HOME NOW OPF NO TIGHT IUIKY IRAIDS km mm Mr on aim KSLWHl.Kl tPAbt immmi misnmcs mi mm otwiismms Call: 438-8882 on 0- I MANUFACTURER COUPON I KPtStS 3' 69 pSAVE on one 35 oz. or PWOCTER GAMBLE 5 IS Liquid As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown said in an interview Wednesday. Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people.
A fifth of Egypt's arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study. "Ecological refugees will become a major concern, and what's worse is you may find that people can move to drier ground, but the soils and the natural resources may not support life. Africa doesnt have to worry about land, but would you want to live in the Sahara?" he said. UNEP estimates it would cost the United States at least $100 billion to protect its east coast alone.
Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheat-lands, while the Soviet Union could reap bumper crops if it adapts its agriculture in time, according to a study by UNEP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity's use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, the study says. The atmosphere is retaining more heat than it radiates, much like a greenhouse. The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth's temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown.
Brown said if the warming trend continues, "the question is will we be able to reverse the process in time? We say that within the next 10 years, given the present loads that the atmosphere has to bear, we have an opportunity to start the stabilizing process."
