JAPAN Climate Change A presentation brought to you by... Safi Jenny Erica Erika Sean Location's Past and Current Climate
Current Social and Economic Data Factors Influencing Climate Major Aspects of Life That Would be Affected Resources Used and Alternatives Potential Solutions Past Current Colder than current climate Less humidity and typhoons Little to no rising sea levels and floods Generally moderate Summers tend to be hot and humid Spring and Fall are warm and there is less rain lots of rain in June and July Winters bring lots of snow to the Sea of Japan side of the ocuntry, but little to the Pacific Ocean side the typhoon season occurs in August and October Predictions of Future Climate Temperatures will continue to rise rain instead of snow Longer typhoon season imbalance in water cycle Flooding in port cities, by 2070 Possible Changes in Region Impact on Water Resources and Natural Disasters Impact on Agriculture Effect of Sea Level Rise accelerates normal water cycle
harmful to preset balances of water management more natural disasters negative effects on crops global food shortages decrease in rice production OMG!!! NO!!! more erosion increasing flooding Tokyo Osaka Kobe nagoya Economic Social one of the world's largest economies more recently, has suffered from recession and debt surplus in export/import balance Exports Imports Industries cars electronics computers oil food wood manufacturing construction distribution communication agriculture Population - 127 078 678 low population growth rate world's longest life expectancy Issues less marriage and births increasing elder population decreasing overall population Human Health Marine Ecosystems More extreme weather conditions increase in deaths
more salmonella poisoning and cholera
decrease in Phytoplankton population floods
droughts
heat waves Energy sources in Japan Alternatives traditionally thermal followed by nuclear and then hydro very little renewable energy extremely low oil production Solar energy and wind energy are unreasonable options however, wind energy may be pursued offshore hydroelectricity! Promote private enterprises’ efforts to achieve CO2 reductions CO2 reductions in households Reduce CO2 from vehicle traffic Collaboration with major countries

Recommendations RAISE AWARENESS PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS CORPORATE TIE EXPERIMENT Wind and Air Mass Ocean Currents Near Water tropical airflows from Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean high pressure and low pressure areas

warm Kuroshio current cold Okhotsk current ocean moderates climate central Japan less affected
