The Weather in Punto Fijo, Venezuela

The weather in Punto Fijo, Venezuela, is a topic of great interest to local residents and visitors who want to know about the residents and visitors who wish to know the weather conditions of this beautiful coastal city. In this article, we will explore in detail the climate of Punto Fijo, highlighting its unique characteristics.

Where is Punto Fijo?

Before getting into the details of the climate, it is essential to understand the location of Punto Fijo.
This city is located on the Paraguaná Peninsula, surrounded by the Caribbean Sea to the north and west.
Its proximity to the sea plays a fundamental role in its climate, as it influences temperatures and precipitation patterns.

The Climate in Punto Fijo: Key Factors

The climate of Punto Fijo is mainly arid tropical. It is characterized by year-round warm temperatures and a fairly defined rainy season. Some of the key factors that influence the climate of this region include
include latitude, proximity to the sea and trade winds.
Although Punto Fijo generally feels like an eternal summer, it technically experiences two seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. The rainy season runs from May to October, while the dry season runs from November to April.

Average Temperatures and Humidity

Average temperatures in Punto Fijo vary little throughout the year. During the
daytime temperatures usually range between 30°C and 35°C, making it a warm destination.
Nights are cool, with temperatures rarely dropping below 20°C (68°F). Relative humidity in this region tends to be high, generally above 70% in most months, which means that the air contains a substantial amount of water vapor.

At Punto Fijo, the favorable relative humidity provides an environment conducive to the effective operation of atmospheric water generators, making them a viable option for the for the production of high quality drinking water.

The climatic conditions in the region favor the efficiency of these systems, offering an important solution for the production of high quality drinking water.

These systems offer an important solution for obtaining potable water in areas with scarce water resources and a high demand for clean, safe water.

Precipitation and the Rainy Season

During the rainy season, Punto Fijo experiences regular rainfall that can be heavy, averaging 450 mm per month. This is essential for local vegetation and agriculture.
But we must also keep in mind that Punto Fijo’s geographic location puts it at risk of tropical storms and hurricanes during the rainy season.

It is important to be prepared and follow weather warnings.

Rain of Life at the Exphore Costa Rica trade show

In our continuous effort to show the qualities and benefits of Rain of Life Atmospheric Water Generators, we recently participated in the Exphore Costa Rica fair, an event aimed at the hospitality world, mainly hotels and restaurants, but also attended by professionals from the supermarket sector, the food industry, caterings… More than 4,000 people, mainly industry professionals, attended this event encouraged by the interest in the new products and services that the more than 200 exhibitors had to offer to their businesses.

The fair was held in San José on October 25, 26 and 27 and Rain of Life did not hesitate to confirm our participation.

For restaurants and hotels, having an abundant supply of quality drinking water is essential. They usually have a large number of users among their guests or diners and the staff itself, and drinking water is one of the most important resources to offer an excellent service to their customers.

Our objective at this fair was very clear: to show in person how our atmospheric water generators work, as well as to show directly what they can do for each of the sectors that gathered at the Costa Rica Convention Center.

One of our equipment, specifically the RoL50, was installed at the exhibition to demonstrate its ease of operation and dimensions. In addition, trade fair attendees were able to see how our atmospheric water generators extract high-quality drinking water from the humidity in the air.

During the two days of the fair, the Rain of Life team in Costa Rica was able to present our equipment to hospitality professionals, as well as recommend the one that best suits their business. Each machine offers different delivery capacities, from the 50 liters of the RoL50 to the 10,000 liters per day of the largest machine, the RoL10,000.
It was a pleasure to share these days where networking and the discovery of new products and services to improve the efficiency of a sector as important as this one were the protagonists, in addition to demonstrating that a responsible and environmentally friendly water consumption is possible.

Likewise, it was possible to demonstrate that quality and sustainability are compatible thanks to the solar kits that we have designed for each atmospheric generator. In this way we take advantage of and reuse nature’s resources, thus reducing our carbon footprint and also saving on our electricity bill, which is always appreciated by the sectors visiting the fair.
It only remains for us to thank Exphore Costa Rica and all the attendees who came to this fair for the great reception of our stand and the interest shown by all those who passed by it in the possibility of obtaining an autonomous and economical supply of drinking water of a higher quality than most bottled water on the market.

And of course, from Rain of Life we would like to give special thanks to the Rain of Life Distributors in Costa Rica, Mr. Rubén Ruibal and Mr. Rubén Dorta for the excellent work done in Exphore, with whom all the people and professionals in Costa Rica can contact for any further information they may need.

The Venezuelan military deployed in Paraguaná are supplied with water produced from the air.

From September 19 to 29, more than 2,500 Venezuelan military personnel were deployed in various camps on the Paraguaná peninsula (Venezuela) for strategic training as part of the 17th anniversary of CeoFanb.

The event was attended by representatives from 25 Operational Zones, divided into camps that were set up in each zone with all services. For this purpose, drinking water was supplied to the personnel deployed there through the installation of several Rain of Life atmospheric water generators.

The equipment installed there came from the Punto Fijo plant in Falcón State, which was inaugurated at the beginning of the year. This plant manufactures Rain of Life atmospheric water generators for all of Latin America with Venezuelan labor.

During the military practices, equipment was installed that generated 50 liters of water per day each, thus supplying quality drinking water to all those who attended the event.

Heat waves and their relation to climate change

Many places suffer from high temperatures throughout the summer season. In fact, the heat can be really extreme for several days, weeks or even months. This phenomenon is known as heat wave, and has very important consequences on health, climate and environment.

Drought: a global problem that urgently needs attention

In Spain we are facing one of the three driest hydrological years since 1961. Our crops suffer the vicissitudes of the lack of water while we look at the sky and watch the news hoping that, as soon as possible, the weather will give us a respite to recover the water from our reservoirs. “There is a drought” is what we hear when talking about this worrying issue. But do we really know what kind of drought we are facing?

Types of drought

Drought can be defined, in a general way, as a natural condition that occurs in a certain region, in the absence of rainy periods, or when they are very short. This causes a major impact on the habitat and climatic conditions of the environment, even becoming incompatible with life.

But there is a wide variety of types of drought:

Meteorological drought: it is generated when there is a continuous lack of rainfall. It originates due to a global behavior of the atmospheric system, which is influenced by both natural factors and those caused by human action, for example, deforestation or the increase in greenhouse gases. This type of drought is linked to a specific region where these meteorological circumstances occur.

Hydrological drought: It is the decrease in the availability of surface and/or groundwater in a given area during a given time period, compared to historical values. This hydrological drought can cause the complete dissatisfaction of the demand for water.

Agricultural drought: It is the lack of moisture to meet the needs of a crop in a given place and time. In rainfed crops it is linked to meteorological drought, while in irrigated crops it is more linked to hydrological drought.

Socioeconomic drought: it is the effect of water scarcity on people and economic activity as a result of any of the types of drought.

Causes of the lack of water problem

Although we clearly understand drought as a phenomenon associated with climate change and global warming, the truth is that it is convenient to identify cycles of meteorological drought with recent phenomena. Thus, the current situation of drought that we are suffering in our country and in other areas of the planet seems to be clearly related to the La Niña phenomenon , an anomalous cooling of the waters of the Pacific Ocean. It is the conclusion reached by experts such as Juan Jesús González, physicist, researcher in atmospheric dynamics and spokesman for the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). According to their own statements, the current period of drought that we are facing is the consequence of an anticyclonic blockade that causes a lack of sustained rains over time.

In addition, another clear indicator is the strong thermal oscillation that we have been experiencing at the end of winter. Thermal differences of more than 25ºC between maximum and minimum that have led us to live a “summer winter” in some parts of the country.

Other areas of the world are also suffering these consequences, even more noticeably than in Spain. Thus, the western United States, Latin America and Morocco are facing their worst dry season in the last 30 years.

Global warming, the ultimate culprit

But let’s not fool ourselves. Global warming is, without a doubt, the cause of these alterations in rainfall and in the thermal increase of the planet. This is a reality that the experts responsible for the IPCC (International Panel of Experts on Climate Change) underline in all their reports. They indicate that if the global levels of greenhouse gas emissions are maintained, the heat waves that hit our countries would become annual.

Much of the seagrass beds could disappear by the middle of this century, taking with them the rich biodiversity they harbor. We will also experience more fires, crop losses and agricultural land. And of course, access to clean drinking water globally will be drastically affected. This is because the increase in demand without the renewal of aquifers due to drought could deplete water reserves in the most populated areas of the planet.

These experts also indicate that the situation could not be so devastating if our consumption habits are drastically changed. Changes that lead to a significant reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases.

River pollution

We are aware of the water pollution problems caused by plastics that fall into the sea. They come from different places: waste dumped on public roads, fishing nets, waste from ships and commercial cargo… These plastics, reduced to microplastics, are responsible for polluting the seas and poisoning marine species. Thus, each year, more than a million birds and more than 100,000 marine mammals die as a result of this invasion of plastics in the sea.

But there is a problem of similar magnitude that is beginning to gain prominence in the concern of scientists and biologists, and that is drug contamination in the water of rivers around the world.

A study published by PNAS on 258 rivers in 104 countries around the world shows that the presence of pharmacological pollutants represents a real threat to environmental and human health in more than a quarter of the places analyzed.

Environmental exposure to active pharmaceutical ingredients can have negative effects on the health of ecosystems and humans, and also represents a global threat to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Pollution of rivers by drugs

The problem of antibiotics and drugs dumped into rivers has been known for a decade, although some regions such as South America and Africa had not been studied until now. The aforementioned study found that South Asia and South America concentrate the majority of rivers with high drug contamination around the world, topping the list of most polluted rivers in the cities of Lahore (Pakistan), La Paz (Bolivia) and Addis Ababa. (Ethiopia). In the case of Europe, the most polluted river is the Manzanares River while, in the United States, the southern city of Dallas has the most polluted river waters in the country.

Regarding the substances that are most found in the fluvial waters studied, anticonvulsants, antidiabetics and caffeine are some of the protagonists of this contamination.

How do drugs get into river water?

The discharge of drugs into the water is partly unavoidable, since it is a consequence of our own consumption. Our kidneys work to excrete “useless” substances from our body. There are studies that indicate that up to 90% of the medicine we take is expelled intact with the urine.

But not only humans are responsible for these events; farm animals, industrial discharges or drugs thrown away, also increase the pharmacological levels of the water.

Damiá Barceló, a member of the Higher Council for Scientific Research and director of the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA), points out that “close to 20% of European citizens still flush medicines down the toilet, instead of taking them to pharmacies or collection of expired medicines”.

Antibiotics and other medicines.

The discovery of antibiotics in rivers was already a known problem years ago, although in this case, scientists determined that in more than 19% of the regions analyzed the presence of these drugs was so high that it could stimulate the development of resistant bacteria. These bacteria are considered by the WHO as one of the main threats against public health, and it is recognized as a “silent pandemic” that caused more than one million deaths in the world in 2019.

Because obviously the water we consume is subjected to purification and potabilization treatments that are responsible for nullifying the incidence of these toxins, but we must think about the species that live in these waters and that are the most realistic indicator of their level of health. . For example, algae and fish are hopelessly faced with the existence of these high levels of toxins that are detrimental to their existence.

In the case of antidepressants, some studies determine that marine animals can suffer a deterioration in their health due to the intake of these medications. Giovanni Polverino, an evolutionary ecologist at the University of Western Australia, recently stated that “The collateral effects of psychoactive pollutants in wildlife are of increasing concern. Psychoactive drugs target receptors in the human brain that are evolutionarily conserved throughout the animal kingdom; so it’s perhaps not surprising that they can affect non-target species.” In other words, the intake of antidepressants by these species can affect their ability to socialize, alter their eating patterns, migratory routes and even their mating. Research published in 2021 also revealed that crayfish exposed to antidepressants present in river waters become much more aggressive, hide much less and are therefore more vulnerable to predators. This certainly affects the food chain and the cycle of life.

But does this affect the water we drink?

The Drinking Water Treatment Plants or Stations (WWTP or WWTP) have means to remove the different contaminants that they may contain from the water. To do this, as we have already mentioned in previous blogs, they have numerous “pools” through which the water passes, and in each of them a contaminant is removed by reacting with some chemical substance that the plant pours into it. However, the huge amount of contaminants from medicines, or emerging contaminants (as they are called in some media) makes it very difficult or almost impossible to find reagents that completely remove them from the water we drink.

In this way, several studies affirm that the water that reaches the taps of our houses contains certain amounts of emerging contaminants or medicines that have not been able to be eliminated in the treatment stations, and that are harmful to health. And this circumstance, as indicated, could be even more serious in the future.

However, the water obtained from the Rain of Life atmospheric generators is unlikely to contain any of these emerging contaminants. For this reason, in addition to many others, its consumption is recommended for drinking and cooking.
