PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Dr. Miah M Adel, physics professor at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) along with Mahmood R. Hossain of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and Saiyeeda F. Hossain of White Hall High School recently published an article entitled, “Climatic Severity Victims of Upstream Water Piracy Strongly Evidencing Inland Water Depletion-Caused Global Warming Vis-A-Vis Cooling” in the American Journal of Environmental Science. The authors have shown that not only global warming occuring, but also global cooling.
The past winter was a glaring example for the cooling effect – while the carbon dioxide-based effect is global warming, the water exploitation-based effect can contribute the global warming vis-a-vis cooling.
“The summers are getting warmer and winters are cooler because of the world-wide unregulated exploitation of water resources which maintains the thermal balance in nature,” says Dr. Adel. “In its absence, we face desert-like climates.”
Many natural sources of water including rivers have been made dry and millions of kilometer-long waterways have been setup artificially for transportation of water to irrigate millions of hectares of land and for navigability. Water bodies absorb heat during the summertime and retain for release in the winter not to let the winter temperature drop. In the absence of these water bodies, the solar heat is reflected all around and warm up the environment in the summertime.
According to the article, the absence of water means the absence of heat reservoirs which makes the wintertime environment cooler than usual. In the absence of the thermal balance in nature by losing the thermal reservoirs, natural immunity gets lost, causing polar vortices can to happen multiple times. To mitigate climate change, international bodies have to formulate laws putting limits on the inland exploitation of water bodies.
