Global warming will mean an increase in average global temperature of 4 ° C, which represents for Latin America and the Caribbean 20% more droughts, 80% more tropical cyclones and an almost complete disappearance of Andean glaciers, also the long beaches of places like Mexico, Brazil and the Caribbean which provides a consolidated economy through tourism, are at risk from rising sea level. The Caribbean region has already lost more than 80% of its marine fauna, accompanied by the effects of this pollution, overfishing and rising island population. Major exports to the economy of Latin America will have reduced their yields by the new climate conditions, most notably soybean crops, beans, rice, corn, sugarcane and coffee.

According to the study, Let’s go down the temperature of the World Bank, the phenomenon of global warming will be an increase in average global temperature of 4 ° C, which results in Latin America and the Caribbean and 20% more droughts, 80% more tropical cyclones and an almost complete disappearance of Andean glaciers, reports notimerica.com website, which gathers information about various reports.

The increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system is a major global threats and challenges of the XXI century.

The climatic conditions of the region will become more extreme, causing areas suffering drought will become drier and wet areas will have higher volume of rainfall. Global temperatures would enhance the melting of glaciers in Bolivia and Peru that cover 77% of the glaciers around the world, which also constitute a strong population risk, since they are the main source of fresh water consumption, irrigation hydropower of the countries to the region. Also, places like Mexico, Brazil and the Caribbean, whose long beaches establishes a consolidated economy through tourism, are at risk from rising sea level.

According to the First Study on Climate Change in Brazil, the Amazon River, the largest river and across the Earth, it is at risk from climate change, as it could increase its temperature by 6 ° C until the end of the century, reducing rainfall 45% and cause deforestation, resulting in a significant change in the global hydrological cycle. Also, areas with coral reefs will be seriously undermined. The Caribbean region has already lost more than 80% of its marine fauna, accompanied by the effects of this pollution, overfishing and rising island population.

According to a report by the National Institute of Ecology and Climate Change (INEEC) of Mexico, the warming of sea temperatures will lead to increased energy that will be reflected in the intensification of hurricanes in areas North Atlantic and Pacific. Major exports to the economy of Latin America will see reduced their yields by the new climate conditions, most notably soybean crops, beans, rice, corn, sugarcane and coffee. As an example, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the soybean crop in Brazil could fall to 24% in 2050.
