(Agency) London, India and Pakistan are already facing extreme heat. In the coming days, people in both countries are unlikely to be relieved by the heat.
The UK’s Meteorological Department warned on Wednesday that climate change had increased the likelihood of record heatwaves in northwest India and Pakistan by 100 times. Both countries are facing record temperatures and intense sunshine. Due to which normal public life is being badly affected.
According to the report of the British Meteorological Department, the highest temperature recorded in these countries in 2010 was after 190. The Meteorological Department conducted an attribution study in 2010 to estimate the temperature recorded in these months, which is likely to be higher than the record temperature.
The meteorological department said on its website on Wednesday that the study showed that the average temperature recorded in 2010 is expected to exceed the average temperature once in 21 years. However, in the current climate change, this possibility has occurred once in 3.1 years, for which climate change is responsible.
According to this study, by the end of this century, the fear will disappear once in 1.15 years. Nikos Christidis, who is involved in the attribution study, said that the pre-monsoon in the region was extremely hot in April and May. Climate change is increasing the intensity of premonsoon heat. As a result, the risk of setting a record temperature has increased 100 times.
In recent days, the temperature has reached close to 50 degrees Celsius, indicating that the current heat is affecting people’s lives. Now this is likely to be a new record. This will have to wait until the end of the month.
