Inmet issues ALERT today (26), check the forecast

The weather forecast issued an important warning about heavy rain in Brazil this week. Understand.

Brazil is preparing for a week of intense rain in several parts of the country, with danger alerts issued by the National Institute of Meteorology (INMET).

The alert highlights the risk of rain that can vary between 50 to 100 mm/day, accompanied by winds of 60 to 100 km/h, which bring with them the possibility of power cuts and flooding.

Intense rains mark the week in several regions of Brazil

INMET classified the danger as especially striking in the North, Central-West and South of Brazil, but other areas are also not free from facing heavy rainfall.

In areas marked in orange, the forecast is for significant rain and strong winds, while a yellow alert indicates potential danger in parts of Amazonas, Pará, Amapá, Tocantins, Northeast and South of the country.

The 21st century climate challenge

The intense rains, according to some experts, are a reflection of the climate changes currently facing the world. In other words, the problem is not just in Brazil.

Causes of climate change

The scientific consensus is clear: human activities, in particular the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation and intensive agriculture, are driving climate change.

The release of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) creates an imbalance in the Earth’s climate system, leading to global warming.

Consequences of climate change

Rising temperatures are causing polar ice caps and glaciers to melt, raising sea levels and intensifying extreme weather events such as hurricanes, droughts, intense rains and heat waves.

These changes have devastating consequences for the environment, economy and public health, threatening biodiversity, food security and access to drinking water.

Solutions

Tackling climate change requires a multifaceted and collaborative approach. Transitioning to renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, is critical to reducing carbon emissions.

Furthermore, forest conservation and sustainable agriculture policies can help capture and store carbon, while the adoption of adaptation practices strengthens communities’ resilience to climate impacts.

Challenges

Despite growing recognition of the severity of climate change, there are significant obstacles to effective climate action.

Powerful economic interests, outdated policies and a lack of international cooperation hamper efforts to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability.

Furthermore, global inequality makes it more difficult for the most vulnerable countries to face climate challenges.

In Brazil, inequality becomes even more noticeable when it comes to intense rainfall. Flooding affects, above all, the population in situations of social vulnerability.
