ABSTRACT

November 29, 2011 KMA was released “Future climate projection and impact of climate change by new climate change scenarios”. Unless carbon emissions is implemented globally, it would be occurred rise in temperature by 3.2 degree, increase of precipitation by 16%, rise of sea level by 27cm over Korea in 2050. Then it is projected the twice or six times higher temperature and increase in number of rainfall days by 60%. Continuous global warming would be occurred the floods and landslides, destruction of water resources over the Asia region as well as in Korea. Especially, rapid economic growth, population increase and urban concentration of the population in Southeast Asia make vulnerable for climate change and population of many coastal areas in South East Asia would be faced in danger from the sea and the river side. The rise in temperature and precipitation would be reduced crop production and it is predicted the water shortages and famine in the most Asian developing countries. These global warming and water shortages around the world from rising international grain prices will be coming ‘agflation era’, the global food crisis could be the fuse. Thus, long-term environmental changes such as continued global warming, rising sea levels, destroy of forests, soil erosion, salinity, flooding, desertification would be occurred the climate refugees. Ultimately, these climate crises around the world cannot ignore the possibility of climate war. So we have to develop the plan to manage the crisis of food, water and energy due to the climate change. One of those measures, "National security center on climate change" is proposed to operate for monitoring the abnormal climate phenomena in real time in accordance with global warming and climate change.
