Scientists have warned of the approaching catastrophic heat


Scientists have warned that global warming will soon make life on Earth unbearable. Writes about this Phys.org.

According to experts, from Death Valley in the United States to the Middle East and from India to the Sahara, people are already experiencing extremely uncomfortable temperatures, and if no action is taken, the situation will worsen in other parts of the planet.

Climate expert Zeke Hausfather said warming would cause extreme events to occur more frequently.

So, the temperature in Death Valley in California this summer reached 54.4 degrees Celsius. This is the highest rate on Earth ever recorded by modern instruments.

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported that July 2021 was the hottest year on record, the article said.

As the scientists noted, rising temperatures will lead to intense droughts, forest fires, storms and floods. The rise in the number of heat waves has a devastating effect on agriculture and is fraught with mortal danger to people.

“The flood will result in several casualties, maybe several dozen. We are talking about thousands of deaths every time a heat wave approaches the Earth. Such cataclysms are multiplying, ”said the director of the Pierre-Simon Laplace Institute Robert Votard.

Due to a temperature rise of two degrees, half of the world’s population will suffer from such phenomena every five years, experts concluded.
