Climate Change Impacts on Environment

First, we want to talk about why storms are so frequent in our country. This is because global warming triggers many thunderstorms and triggers polar ice melting, as well as warming sea water that triggers sea level rise and sea temperatures. Hoter ocean surfaces trigger more frequent storms with increasing strength. As sea temperatures rise, more heat is released in the form of water vapor. An injection of energy for the atmosphere. This triggers the emergence of cyclones, accompanied by heavy rains and floods. The reason water vapor back to earth in the form of rain.

have you ever thought, how to naming a cyclone? World Meteorological around the world, including Indonesia, have an agreement in naming this storm. the first letter of the storm or cyclone that was born, is determined in alphabetical order. Like the Cempaka cyclone name, the letter C is the third alphabetical order and is the third cyclone born in Indonesia. Likewise Dahlia, the first letter D is the fourth alphabetical order and is the fourth cyclone born. According to WMO (World Meteorological Organization), naming cyclone or storm is aimed to help us remember and facilitate journalists in writing news.

And now we want to talk focuss on the impact from the storm especially impact to the ennvironment. This cyclone has both positive and negative effects

Positive Impacts

  1. The weather becomes cooler. Because in the rainy season the temperature is usually lower than the dry season so the weather will feel more cool.
  2. Fertilize the soil. With the rain falling, the soil can be more fertile and not dry.
  3. Water abundant.Because of the amount of water that comes down when the rain and areas that are often drought does not experience drought
  4. For areas that often experience drought then with a longer rainy season causes the water supply becomes more and the planting period for the garden is longer.
  5. Water supply in water catchment areas such as reservoirs, ponds and lakes will be more as supplies for agriculture and drinking water in the dry season.
  6. Rain down to earth helps the growth and development of plants as producers in the food chain
  7. If there is still rain then the harvest season will face many problems, such as rice field that is still wet and some are still inundated water, drying the rice is difficult to do because the rain tends to be unpredictable.
  8. For rice field areas prone to puddles due to overflow of the river is also threatened crop failure, because with heavy rain can trigger flooding and overflowing rivers flooded rice fields. Rice will become damaged before harvesting.

Negative Impacts

  1. Heavy rains can cause flooding in some vulnerable areas such as big cities. Because in big cities are generally not many trees, so no one absorbs rain water.
  2. Potentially causing landslides. Continuous rain that is very heavy can make the soil eroded.
  3. high winds are potentially damaging, At the time of the west monsoon wind will generally blow hard and consequently will damage the surrounding area.
  4. Sea waves become high so disturb the livelihood of the fishermen and sea transportation. If the sea waves become high then the fisherman will be difficult to go to the sea because the boat will be hard to control.
  5. Continuous torrential rain may cause some plants to be damaged. Continuous rain is also bad for the plants, during heavy rains, many damaged plants such as tumbles.
  6. Rain water carries pollution substances in the air causing chemical reactions to bring corrosion effects on metal objects. So it will damage the items left outside for too long.
  7. Rain water accompanied by buildup of waste in the environment will cause adverse flooding from the economic and property side.
  8. Strong winds can erode the soil surface, if this happens continuously, the soil may become barren. The erosion of soil caused by wind is called deflation
