More than half of the world’s water bodies are drying up due to climate change

More than half of the world’s water bodies are drying up due to climate change

A recent report has revealed that more than half of the world’s water bodies are drying up. As a result, there may be a danger of extreme water scarcity.

A team of international researchers published their latest paper on Friday. The team’s findings were published in the journal Science.



These researchers write that more than half of the world’s water bodies have dried up or are on the verge of drying up. One reason for this is undoubtedly warming. But more than that is the stubbornness of people. They were extinguishing one reservoir after another.

Fangfang Yao, a geology researcher at the University of Colorado, is the head of the research team. According to them, since 1990, lakes and large lakes have started drying up.

Their research suggests that some reservoirs are drying up to 22 gigatons per year, many times faster than usual.

One reason is that people are withdrawing more water than ever before. That amount of water is not accumulating again. Two. global warming

One measure of climate change is the increase in average temperature. As a result, the pattern of rainfall has changed. Where it used to rain, now it doesn’t.



 As a result, the sedimentation of typical lakes has changed. It is also a reason for the drying up of lakes and reservoirs.

 After observing 2000 reservoirs and lakes in the world, this report wrote. Satellite images of these lakes and reservoirs from 1992 to 2020 have been examined, and this horrifying picture has emerged from there.

According to scientists, more lakes and reservoirs will dry in the next few years if it will not keep the global average temperature increase within 1.5 degrees Celsius. At the same time, it should change people’s attitudes.
