One of the problems Pakistan has that is related to climate change is a shortage of water. This is one of its biggest problems. Some people have suggested melting the glaciers to provide fresh water to areas in Pakistan that are in the middle of a drought. Scientist think this would not impact the enviroment in a bad way.
The most important piece of information I found on Pakistan concerning global warming is a scientific project which studied tree rings in the northern mountains. Why study tree rings in Pakistan? Tree rings can tell a scientist a lot about the weather and the water cycle. The rings can be counted for the exact age of the tree and the size of the ring tells the scientists how much moisture was in the climate that particular year. The scientists found the mountains in Pakistan are much wetter than they have been in centuries before, but yet there is less water. The scientists from the Swiss Federal Research Institute think this could be linked to global warming. The scientists studied tree rings from different centuries and drew conclusions that this could be tied to global warming by humans. The study was controversial because other scientists believe how water settles over different regions does not always indicate a change in cliumate. Still the trees hold some answers as to how Pakistan has adapted to climate change. This could be important if Pakistan is going to develop ways to deal with climate change.
Another interesting fact I found when I looked up global warming on the internet was a very interesting story about a Trans-Global highway that would run through Pakistan. Just the fact someone could think about this is amazing, but what was interesting to me was how it would effect the environment in Pakistan. In theory this highway would be a bridge for business, it could provide rail transportation minimizing the use for cars and airplanes, and more importantly to Pakistan, bring fresh water from melting glaciers to this dcountry and other countries desperately in need of water. So if the world could harness these glaciers then the Artic currents would not be impacted by the warming trend and they could continue to bring warm water to the planet. Mayb e harnessing the melting glaciers and transporting water to place in drought is a solution we can think about to solve some problems now.
