Keynote: Earth’s climate change in the 20th and 21st Centuries: The phenomenon of global warming and its impacts
Time : 08:00-08:45
V Ramaswamy is the Director of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory/NOAA, located in Princeton (New Jersey), USA. He has published more than 150rnpeer-reviewed papers, won prestigious awards, and has been a Coordinating Lead Author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group Irnreports, and has been a Vice-Chair of the Joint Scientific Committee of the World Climate Reserach Program. He is also a Lecturer with the rank of Professor in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University (USA), and teaches a popular graduate course in Atmospheric Physics.
The emissions of greenhouse gases due to human influences has caused perturbations in the Earth system, initiating majorrnchanges in the greenhouse effect and leading to global warming. Other factors such as aerosol emissions and land-usernchange also due to human activity, along with changes in solar radiation and volcanic eruptions causing aerosol increases,rnhave also affected the planetary heat balance. In this presentation, we discuss how each of the natural and anthropogenicrnfactors has contributed to alteration of the Earth system from global to continental to regional scales. The climate variablesrnof particular interest for societal impacts are temperature, precipitation, and weather extremes. For this investigation, we usernstate-of-the-art numerical models of the climate system that were employed in the Fifth Intergovernmental Panel on ClimaternChange Assessment (2013), together with observations drawn from multiple platforms (surface, satellite, aircraft). We analyzernthe key drivers over the 20th Century, the impacts they have generated, and the unresolved issues. We then explore the impactsrnthat are expected in the 21st Century. In the context of both the 20th and 21st Centuries, we discuss the impacts expected due tornglobal warming and the significance of the resulting climate change for extremes in weather, e.g., heat waves, tropical storms,rnsea-level rise, forest fires, droughts, excess rainfall. This brings to the fore the connection between the scientific understandingrnof global warming based on rigor and the manner in which climate change impacts society, including that arising due to thernnonstationary behavior of the changes.

Keynote: SCIENTIFIC DECLARATION ABOUT THE URGENCY OF GLOBAL GEOECOLOGICAL SYSTEMS FOR HUMANITY SURVIVAL AT THE EPOCH OF COSMOPLANETARY AND CLIMATE CHANGES
Time : 9:00- 9:30 AM
Alexander Trofimov has completed his MD (Doctor of Medicine) in 1998 from Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. During many years he was (until 2010) Chief of laboratory of Helio-climatopathology of Scientific Centre of Clinical and Experimental Medicine (SB RAMS, Novosibirsk). From 1994 and now he is the Director of International Scientific-Research Institute of Cosmic Anthropoecology (Russia, Novosibirsk). He has 7 patents, published 6 monographs and more than 60 papers in reputed journals such as Arctic Medicine, Journal of Circumpolar Health, Journal of Earth Science and Climatic Change, Journal of US-China Medical Science, Clinical Medicine Research, Open Access Scientific Reports and many others. His biography was published by “WHO is WHO” in Russia at 2013 year.
Strengthening of the world's technocratic tendencies, depleting the energy resources of the Earth, combined with heliogeophysical and climatic transformations that include changes in space-time coordinates of the solar system are influencing on the biosphere and will have significant evolutional consequences for humanity. rn Participants of the Pre Conference Workshop, Novosibirsk, support the Solutions of "climate summit", held in Paris in November-December 2015, and calls for an expansion of scientific research of natural systems and processes, the strict implementation of the decisions adopted at the summit, to the development of scientific and technological control under emissions of "greenhouse gases" and to the development of the complex of the programs and means, having adaptive and protective properties for a man.rn In conditions of cosmoplanetary and climate change, threatening the growth of morbidity and mortality and even the existence of mankind, it is necessary to create a Global system of geoecological life-support, international, interdisciplinary program that provides monitoring of technogeophysical and heliophysical environment, long-term forecast of "cosmic weather", the development of non-medicinal protective technologies, and the creation of new research institutes of bio-helio-geoecology.rn Water, as an indicator of the state of cosmic-aqua-sphere should become an essential element of the Global System of geoecological life support that is capable to protect the biosphere and humanity from extreme technogenic and heliophysical impacts in conditions of natural geomagnetic deprivation and climatic collisions. rn . Long-term cycle of ISRICA scientific research, directed to modeling of psycho-biotropic effects of the weakened geomagnetic field and condensed flows of "energy-time", allowed to develop and test in Russia and Bulgaria the effective light-water-holographic helioprotective means, patented by ISRICA, ready to wide industrial production and use throughout the world. rn It is necessary to accelerate the scientific development and introduction of helio-geno-gero-protective technologies, computer diagnostics systems such as a "Helios" (Ltd "Biokvant", Novosibirsk, Russia), and other complex methods, designating new horizons of conservation of gene pool of humanity, human adaptation to changing climatic-helio- geophysical conditions and the improvement of people health on the basis of the development of principles of noosphere- preventive medicine and spiritual harmonization of the person. rn This Declaration was adopted at the Pre Conference Workshop of OMICS GROUP conference «Earth Science and Climate Change» unanimously by 32 participants (speakers and guests of the discussion table, figures of science, culture and business) from 4 countries (Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Italy), including from 7 cities in Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yakutsk, Voronezh, Saratov and Tomsk) December 25, 2015 in Russia, Novosibirsk Akademgorodok, ISRICA named after Academician VP Kaznacheev.rn
