Climate Change to Blame for All-Time Heat Records Being Set Worldwide


Climate Change to Blame for All-Time Heat Records Being Set Worldwide

Temperature records worldwide have been shattered by an unprecedented global heatwave which has caused ongoing repercussions.

In Britain alone, this stifling heat has cracked roads and buckled roofs as we hit the highest temperature ever recorded in Scotland at 91.8°F (33.2°C).

The heatwave has spread across the world, with Meteo France placing 21 departments across the country on an orange weather alert, while Oman saw the highest nighttime temperature ever recorded on the planet.

Worse still, the stifling temperatures look set to continue across the Northern Hemisphere, Meteorologists have warned. While an isolated heatwave can be put down as an anomaly, the scale of this phenomenon points to global warming as the culprit.

Friederike Otto if the University of Oxford has said of this “Summers keep getting hotter and heatwaves are far more intense than say that of the 1950s. If we do nothing to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, the kind of extreme heat we saw this past summer will be the norm when my young son is a grown man”

On our side of the Atlantic Ocean, climates are typically milder as a result of the cooling form the gulf stream, but despite this, the summer of 2018 looks set to be one of the hottest on record.

As previously mentioned Scotland has experienced the hottest temperature on record and over the Irish sea, temperature also soared despite cooling breezes rolling off the Atlantic.

Belfast hit a new record of 85.1 degrees (29.5 Celsius) on June 28, as Castlederg in Northern Ireland set a new record for the UK as a whole, topping out at 86.2°F (30.1°C) the following day.

This is what Meteorologist Emma Salter had to say about the recent heatwave “High pressure over the country will slip away on Wednesday and Thursday so it will be a couple of degrees fresher, unfortunately, this will be barely noticeable. The long-range trend is for above-average temperatures staying until the end of July with only a couple of changeable spells in this period”

As temperatures continue to soar Public health England (PHE) has issued a level two health warning with regards to the unusual heat.

With this heatwave looking to continue over the next couple of weeks, it’s important that the UK takes urgent action against these rising temperatures before the damage is irreversible
