    {pie_chart.png} Global Climate Change and Human Health Effects—Situation
    As a researching scientist working for the United States Panel on Global Climate Change Research, you and your colleagues have been collecting data in the field for months. Research on varying aspects of Earth’s diverse ecosystems has been studied and your colleagues are just now gathering to share their experiences and their preliminary findings with the rest of the group.
    With a major international conference looming, it’s time for all of you to analyze the data to formulate a comprehensive report on global climate change on planet Earth.
    This conference requires more than a standard report citing data and displaying results in tables and graphs. Analysis of the data will be required to fully present an accurate picture of the state of the planet’s climate and trends that have been the focus of heated controversy and debate for the last decade. As a scientist, you naturally look at the data from purely objective perspectives.
    An important element of the on-going research on global climate change
    this is the study of how any climate changes may affect human health. Understanding the mechanisms behind potential climate changes will allow accurate predictions of impacts to human health and the social and political factors which will affect the well-being of millions of Earth’s inhabitants.
    Your team is tasked with researching the predicted climate changes and the corresponding impact, if any, that the change will have on human health. You will be responsible for reporting both the changes and consequences. Once an accurate assessment is made, we can move on to resolutions which may alleviate any negative impacts.
    cool aint it

    ...
    Much of the land in and around the San Antonio National Park is referred to as "disturbed lands," or areas that have been engineered for human habitat. The process of human engineering of the land and water in the San Antonio River Valley dates back to two Spanish missionary settlements between 1718 and 1720 and another three Spanish missions in 1731. Human reconfiguring of the land continued through the 1950s when, for example, the San Antonio River was channelized near the park to assist with flood protection.
    Today, human engineering of the San Antonio River Valley continues and is necessary to provide water to support San Antonio's growing population. Human changes to the historic San Antonio missions area has been ongoing since the creation of the national park in 1978 to support historic preservation of the area. The park has acquired many acres of property to restore the landscape and protect cultural resources. Much of this land was occupied by modern homesteads in various stages of use and was heavily disturbed. The park has restored most of the areas by removing buildings and debris in an attempt to recreate the landscape of the Spanish colonial period and also to meet modern health and safety standards.

    Many of today's plowed fields and old fields (succeeding to huisache tree uplands) are located where historic labores (fields) were tended during Spanish colonial times. Areas with the historic acequias were at one time dry scrublands. Because of water provided by acequias irrigation systems (historically engineered canals that carry snow runoff or river water to distant fields), thick riparian vegetation with tall trees have replaced scrublands in some areas. However, drought conditions in 2011 have turned Texas and parts of the Plains into a parched moonscape of cracked earth. According to an Aug. 5, 2011, Associated Press story, the drought "could persist into next year, prolonging the misery of farmers and ranchers who have endured a dry spell that is now expected to be the state's worst since the 1950s."

    The San Antonio Missions National Historic Park is located in a unique ecological area that includes three types of ecosystems. The Edwards Plateau, Oak Woods and Tallgrass Prairie, and Tamaulipan Thornscrub ecosystems meet in the city. The conjunction of this variety of ecosystems plus the presence of numerous streams and associated riparian vegetation offer support for a diversity of plants, animals, and ecological environments that characterize the San Antonio River Valley.

    During the summer of 2011, higher than normal temperatures and dry vegetation mixed with high winds and low humidity to create extreme drought conditions in Texas. Your task is to determine whether the drought is a consequence of global climate change, or are these conditions more likely normal seasonal weather patterns for this area? Should Texas and other states in the Great Plains plan for long term drier weather and higher temperatures? Or will the weather return to more temperate conditions with varying higher and lower seasonal temperatures and precipitation levels?
