The late 20th century has been the warmest period in the human civilization's history
Over the past 20 years, the Earth warmed up by an average of 0.2 degrees. The change in the circulation of sea currents and the shift of the planet's energy zones have altered the atmospheric circulation, which, in turn, has altered the climate of large areas on the planet, Igor Kopylov, a professor with the Moscow Energy Institute and a State Prize winner, said in the scientific supplement to the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily. According to the scientist, the global energy change is due to the growing solar activity, the Earth's deceleration due to the transient phenomenon and the shift of its warm and cold zones. Another transient cycle in our galaxy began in the early 20th century and has been underway for a century. The eternal snowcap of the Kilimanjaro, where Africa's great rivers originate, may melt in the near future. What will happen to Africa's wildlife and population is everybody's guess. The same is destined for the great rivers of Central Asia - the Amu-Darya and the Syr-Darya, because the glaciers in Central Asia are shrinking, causing mudflows. The same goes for the Caucasus. According to Kopylov, the change in typhoons' pattern resulted in droughts in the Khabarovsk region in the Russian Far East, while dwindling atmospheric precipitation prompted the freshwater shortage in the Maritime territory. The shift of warm and cold zones is to affect the northeast of Europe where a cold zone is moving. By the mid-21st century, the boundary between the cold and warm zones will run near the Moscow region. Permafrost's southward advance has been detected near the city of Vorkuta, with the opposite process being underway in western Siberia. If the cold spell in Europe's northeast results by the mid-21st century in a 1-1.5-degree drop in the average annual temperature, the warming in western Siberia is to be on a larger scale. According to Professor Kopylov, the global climate change is no temporary phenomenon, and this should be taken into account by all development plans for Russia and its individual regions
