All-Time Heat Records Are Being Broken as Worldwide As Heatwave Continues
Thousand have also been forced to leave their homes in California
Temperatures across the globe have been unusually high these past few days as people across the Northern Hemisphere have been feeling the struggle to deal with the intense heat.
Huge fires across the Moors near Saddleworth UK continues to grow amid rising temperatures.
Thousand have also been forced to leave their homes in California and plenty are without power as this heatwave prompts a high electricity demand and wildfires rage.
The temperature level at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) reached 111 degrees on the 6th and thus went beyond the previous record of 109.
This being a record set well before the 2000s.
The Majority Of Southwest California was under warning caution from the 6th till this weekend and who knows what else may originate from all of twisted from a warming world”.
China has also been seeing record highs in current times as they have been handling sweltering heat given that May.
There is no doubting this has something to do with the warming of the planet itself. All of these things need to be seen as slightly stressing signs.
The UK and Ireland have experienced quite a change as well.
Britain in itself is presently undergoing its most prolonged spell of heat in 42 years. Conditions have literally been described as 'blowtorch condition' and are not going to be waning anytime soon.
Precisely what do you consider all of this?
I for one hope temperature levels start reducing at some point quickly and that nobody gets caught out in this heat for too long. Stay safe, do whatever you can to beat the heat.
According to The Week: In Denver, Colorado temperatures hit 40.5C last week, a new record, while Britain is on course for its longest spell of hot weather for 42 years which has caused railway lines and rooves to buckle, the Weather Channel reported, and resulted in multiple all-time record highs.
This pales in comparison to Oman, where the world’s highest sustained temperature in a 24-hour period of 42.6C was recorded at the end of last month in the city of Quriyat.
But while many have been taking advantage of the heat wave, there are deeper concerns that record temperatures could become an ever more common phenomenon in the years to come.
Speaking to Canada’s Global News site, Blair Feltmate, a University of Waterloo climate scientist, said:
“All the predictions illustrate that going forward in Canada, things are going to be hotter, wetter and wilder. It’s not any particular year that matters. What matters is the overall, the long-term trend.”
Globally, the world’s average annual temperature is 1C warmer than it was a century ago, he added.
Extreme weather events such as heatwaves and wildfires are becoming more common as temperatures rise, Jennifer Marlon, of Yale University, told The Times.

“We know that these kinds of events are very consistent with what we expect to be happening with climate change,” she said.
“No single record, in isolation, can be attributed to global warming,” says the Washington Post, but “collectively, however, these heat records are consistent with the kind of extremes expected from a warming world”.
