The Earth melts in excessive heat: 36 thousand weather stations prove climate change

The Earth melts in excessive heat

Over 36 thousand weather stations installed in different corners of the globe indicate a climate change. And the heat is in priority. The meteorological observations prove that as the planet continues to heat up, extreme weather events, such as heat waves, heavy rains causing severe consequences, become more intense and longer. A study confirming these facts was based on a special set of data analyzing 29 indicators of extreme weather events.

The analysis gives a comparative result of a period of three decades from 1981 to 2010, and a period from 1951 to 1980. The clearest comparison index proves that the number of warm days in a year has increased significantly.

For example, in Australia, both the number of warm days and the number of extremely cold nights have increased significantly. But the extreme temperatures that the scientists observe can have the most devastating effects on human health.

Excessive heat is a problem not only for those who live in the city, but also for rural residents exposed to heat, when the thermometer reads off the mark plus 50 degrees. Extreme temperatures and precipitation will lead to a revision of agricultural algorithms.

The cultivation of various agricultural structures has always depended on weather and climatic conditions. Their changes will amend the usual scheme of land cultivation. Some crops will have to be abandoned, because they do not tolerate hot temperatures.

Other agricultural varieties will have to squeeze, because they do not justify the desired yield results, but farmers do not intend to completely abandon the cultivation of these crops. The changing climate puts its conditions before the agricultural complex. Excessive heat and extreme weather will be one of the causes of the alleged food crisis.
