Even 0.01 Degree More than in July 2016

The agency says, July is known for its heat across the world, but this year July has proved to be the hottest month in history. According to the agency's administrator Rick Spinrad, the temperature in July this year was 0.01 degrees Celsius higher than in July 2016. An example of this is Canada.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an agency working on climate change, has recently given a warning. The agency says, if the emissions of greenhouse gases around the world are not reduced, then by the year 2100, the temperature of the earth can increase by two degrees. If this happens, natural disasters will increase around the world.

Carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, and chloro-fluoro carbon are the only greenhouse gases, their amount is increasing with increasing temperature. The reason for this is the fast cutting of trees, vehicular smoke, industrialization, and increasing use of air conditioners in the country and the world.

The danger of breaking the heat record in the next 4 years

The world record for warming of the earth may be broken. However, Scientists of the World Metrological Organization (WMO) have warned in their report that between 2021 and 2025 there will be a year that will be the hottest on record. Also, there is a danger of increasing the temperature by 1.5 degrees by 40 percent. He will leave the summer of 2016 behind. Rising temperatures can lead to increased heat waves, excessive rainfall, and water scarcity.

The risk of temperature rise increased from 20% to 40%

In the last decade, there was only a 20 percent chance of a 1.5-degree temperature increase, but in the new report, this risk has now been described as 40 percent. If this happens, the temperature will rise above the set in the Paris climate agreement in 2015. Also, Meteorologist Leon Hermanson says that the world is on the way to increase the temperature by 1.5 degrees. There is a need to take immediate action to stop this as time is passing.

Ice will recede, sea level will rise

The Secretary-General of the World Metrological Organization, Prof. According to Petrie Talas, rising temperatures will cause ice to recede and sea levels to rise. Also, this will worsen the weather. As a result, food, health, environment, and development will be affected. Reports suggest that it is time to be cautious. There is a need to act fast to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases around the world.

Threat to South Asia will increase

According to the report of the World Metrological Organization, about a quarter of the world's population lives in South Asia. This region already suffers the most from the heat. However, in such a situation, rising temperature is a big threat here. About 60 percent of the people of this area do agriculture. They have to work in open ground, so they will be exposed to heatstroke.
