Everyone talks about the weather. Of course we do. Because there will be more and more of it. from unusual weather. In Athens, they closed the Acropolis for several days this summer because it is dangerous to health to be outside. 48 degrees was measured in the Greek capital. In a city favored by tourists, in Lisbon, the sun does not shine even though the sky is mainly blue. In principle, it is blue, but in reality the sky is gray, covered with smoke from forest fires that are impossible to stop, because nothing can stop a fire at such temperatures.
In Italy it was Not this spring. One of them went straight to the summer. In New York, visibility was poor this summer because it is burning in Canada, and when it rains, the sky opens as the sea did for Moses. Record temperatures have been measured in the USA, China and India. What we observe has biblical proportions. And so on and so on. Is it weird that we’re talking about the weather?
The three are hotter The days on the globe are recorded during one week this year, on July 3, 4 and 6. The new record shows an average global temperature of 17,233 degrees. That’s about a quarter of a degree warmer than the old 2016 record of 16,924 degrees. It is more than half a degree warmer than the record set in the 1980s. It’s not just new records being set. It’s going at record speed.
So, we talk And we talk. about the weather. And then we get on the plane to look for the weather where it is almost unlivable, and make the weather unlivable, so that it will soon become unlivable according to the meteorological forecast. In reality. The World Weather Attribution Network, a network that creates climate models, used to have its reservations, because weather is also a consequence of natural fluctuations. But now they say the probability of this summer’s heatwave in almost the entire Northern Hemisphere is 100% due to man-made climate emissions.
They leave no doubt. Although their weather forecasts are of a dubious variety. Doubtful, not because there is something wrong with the mannequins. No, doubtful because he’s crazy.
climate scientist Nikolaos Christidis was looking at what would become a reality for countries around the Mediterranean and the Middle East, and wanted to know if, and how often, it was likely to see 50 degrees. He looked to preindustrial times—that is, before man-made climate emissions—and concluded that such temperatures practically did not occur. But at the turn of the next century, that will happen every decade at least, if we don’t drastically reduce climate emissions. in Athens, Malaga, Tel Aviv and Cairo.
And we talk and talk, about the weather. Because extreme weather is no longer extreme, it has become normal, the new normal. However, US pollsters show that climate issues have a low priority as a political challenge. A survey by the Pew Survey Center placed the climate 17th among the 21 most important political challenges in the United States.
So since then Knowledge is obtained not just from research, but from own experiences, so it turns out that many people stick their heads in the sand. In 2019, Australia practically burned. There have been unstoppable wildfires caused by climate change, and a survey showed that even among those directly affected by the fires, a third of those questioned did not associate them with climate change. Should we call them climate deniers?
If we see the future In the white eye, we see more dryness and more uncontrollable fires. Last year was Europe’s worst fire seasons on record, with most of them being the hottest seasons on the Mediterranean. Heating up to 50 degrees causes asphalt to almost melt, railroad tracks become less stable, and make working outside dangerous. Life sometimes becomes unlivable for large crowds in the Middle East and Africa. We will see new migrations as the land becomes impossible to cultivate, and the heat makes life impossible.
For climate deniers It’s time to get your head out of the sand. It is the ostrich that, according to tradition, sticks its head in the sand when danger threatens. Then they stand there as you said climate deniers, their heads in the sand and their ass bared, like a seductive piece of ease… Well, that’s a made-up column after all. However, this inaccurate portrayal brings shame to kilma deniers. It’s a shame, because for some knowledge is clearly not enough. Because he is serious now.
