Climatologists have figured out which country will win from global warming

The vast majority of serious scientists believe global warming is a serious problem in the long term, fraught with catastrophic consequences. Thus, it would seem that the already hot African countries will suffer from climate change in the first place. However, a team from the Polytechnic University of Virginia came to the surprising conclusion that in the end of the warming can win Ethiopia.

According to the researchers, current climate changes can lead to the fact that the Blue Nile river, a tributary of the Nile, will become more affluent. This, in turn, can lead to the fact that the soil in the surrounding river areas will be more fertile, and the period during which residents will be able to grow crops, will be longer. Thus, scientists predict that in the future the people of Ethiopia will raise more abundant harvests, and, possibly, to do it twice as often than to date. Ethiopia not only can more effectively meet its own needs in water and food, but with great probability will turn into a major exporter of food. Changes can improve efficiency of hydropower plants of the country, including the construction called “the Great dam Renaissance of Ethiopia”.

Making its forecast, the scientists took into account existing climate models, and international agreements covering the issue of climate change. Their work, the researchers published in the scientific journal Climatic Change.

It should be noted that recently, experts from the Climate Institute of Australia and the climate Institute in Sydney came to, in a sense, the opposite conclusion — according to them, already in the XXI century with the face of the Earth can be solved forever wild coffee, and “cultural” varieties will become less productive and tasty. One of the countries that this aspect of global warming touches in the first place, scientists call it Ethiopia.
