How Plugin’s Blockchain Technology Helps Industries Adapt To Climate Change #Plugins #Blockchain #Technology #Helps #Industries #Adapt #Climate #Change Welcome to TmZ Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
With the growing threat of climate change, many industries need precise weather forecasting every hour. Plugin’s blockchain solution provides decentralized, verifiable weather data.
Problems with existing weather information technology
Weather intelligence platforms collect weather-related information from distributed radar and satellite systems. While this is useful for gathering data from remote corners of the world, it limits the scope of weather forecasts to wider geographic regions, such as cities and states.
These generic weather forecasts don’t provide details on how the weather will change in a specific street or neighborhood. But having this type of information empowers businesses to make more informed decisions.
Why industries need better weather data
Weather data is collected in various ways globally, but the most popular data collection methods are satellites and hyperlocal sensors. While satellites cover a wide range of geography, they compromise accuracy in specific areas that hyperlocal data can mediate. Hyperlocal data collection is the most efficient form of data collection.
One of the largest industries relying on weather updates is the agriculture sector, and the more detailed the weather forecast, the better. Bringing that information to farmers all over the world will prove to be a challenge, although blockchain technology could facilitate the matter.
The future effects of climate change will necessitate better weather information for agriculture. IPCC chairperson “Hoesung Lee” said that “The next few years will be crucial for the state of climate change in this century. This is why an updated assessment of mitigation is more important than ever”.
Why extreme weather increases the importance of weather data
Many industries, ranging from aviation and agriculture to automobiles and transportation, are significantly affected by weather phenomena like fog, freezing rain, thunderstorms, heavy wind, or even a drop in temperature.

The present increase in extreme weather events, accelerated through climate change, is significantly increasing the importance of detailed weather data from trustable systems.
Advantages of putting weather data on the blockchain
With every industry getting disrupted by new technology, blockchain wins over competitors by offering immutability, trust, security, and decentralization. Putting weather data at a granular level on the blockchain powers many use cases with real-time data at the push of a button.
