Abstract

[automatically translated] In recent decades there has been a steady increase in energy requirements both nationally and internationally. The large amount of energy consumption produced from fossil fuels, deforestation, the 'monocultural industrialized agriculture and animal husbandry have increased emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and other greenhouse gases, raising the threshold of the environmental risk and the thermodynamic equilibrium of the planet. The projections of climate models based on different scenarios of future greenhouse gas emissions show that the temperature increase by the end of the century (Metz et al., 2007) could cause a significant impact on the hydrological cycle. With an average higher temperatures will increase the evaporation and the intensity of the water cycle, with a consequent increase of air humidity. The magnitude and frequency of extreme events such as floods and droughts, are likely to be more frequent and severe in Europe. These phenomena, along with increased demand for water, both in the agricultural sector is from other sectors, will make Europe more vulnerable to drought (Facts about climate change, 2009). This is why climate change has become a central topic in the Search programs and EU Development. make Europe more vulnerable to drought (Facts about climate change, 2009).
