Greetings! happy Sunday! Today I want to tell you what is happening in some corners of our planet with climate extremes related to “climate change”.
Simultaneously, while Australia experienced its worst storm of heavy rain in a short period of time, with areas of this country accumulating up to 1,000 millimeters in less than 4 days, which is only one year, Europe Again in historic breaks high temperature records, given the presence of a historic heat wave.
It should be remembered that from 2017 to the present day, each heat wave that has reached Europe is becoming more intense and widespread from year to year.
On this occasion and till a few days ago, more than 800 people would have lost their lives due to this severe heat wave.
Britain’s Met Office has issued the first red alert for heat as this heat wave has caused life-threatening damage to national records.
A red warning has been issued for parts of England, covering areas from the capital London as far north as Manchester and York. Orange warnings have also been issued in other parts of England and Wales on the same day.
This extreme heat wave sets record maximum in Spain, Portugal and France
The situation is unprecedented and has taken many meteorologists by surprise. In areas where the red warning has been issued, there is a real possibility that temperatures will exceed 40 degrees Celsius, something that has never happened in the UK before.
The current UK record for the hottest temperature in history is 38.7? Which is set in the Cambridge Botanical Garden in 2019. At the moment, forecasters predict that this record could be broken, even crushed. However, yes, there is still uncertainty about the exact temperature, with a few days to go.
This will be an unknown scenario for the UK. Though the country was predicted to cross the threshold of 40? In the next decade or two, very few people expected it to happen so quickly. The fact that we’re even talking about it as a real possibility is extraordinary.
Of course, these types of temperatures are life threatening and should not be taken lightly. According to the Meteorological Department, people living in areas under red warning are at risk of “severe illness or life-threatening illness”.
