Dangerous heat waves
Introduction of Dangerous heat waves
Dangerous heat waves are spreading all over the world, with devastating consequences such as continuous forest fires. This disturbing situation is a cause of concern for scientists and policymakers as it is not only destroying human life but also the environment.
Intensive Dangerous heat waves
Heatwaves are very long but hot and humid seasons. In recent years, heat waves have been occurring more frequently and more intensively, causing severe environmental and health problems for humans.
Temprature of the whole world
Due to these changes in weather, the temperature of the whole world is continuously increasing. Due to rising temperatures, heat waves are also becoming more intense and a regular part of the world, which is ravaging different regions of the globe.
Causes an increase in the intensity of the heat
Due to these intense heat waves, forest fires are also becoming commonplace, which causes an increase in the intensity of the heat. Forest fires are dangerous not only for human lives but also for wildlife.
Most of the world, especially the Mediterranean climate regions, including California, Australia, France, Portugal, Italy, Spain, and other Mediterranean countries, and the Mediterranean itself is under constant heat waves and forest fires every day. Fire is like a nightmare for them.
Wildfire in California
The 2020 wildfires in California were the worst on record, burning millions of acres and destroying thousands of homes. Similarly, the worst bushfires in Australia in 2019 and 2020 left nothing but devastation and billions in wildlife damage.
Consequences of extreme Heat
The consequences of these extreme heat waves are immediate, such as health problems, dehydration, heat stroke, and long-term effects. Decrease It is fair to say that the generation that grows during the heat wave has less ability to fight against diseases. Children and the elderly are most affected by heat waves.
Current heat wave situation
But the recent current heat wave had its claws on three continents on Sunday. As a result, forest fires are expected to further increase temperatures, which may reach dangerous levels. The hottest heat on record is predicted for Asia, Europe, and the U.S. The severe threat of heat is hovering over their heads like a sword.
Fifteen thousand people behind Pope Francis
Fifteen thousand people behind Pope Francis in the Vatican City held umbrellas over their heads and prayed for deliverance from the intense heat. But pastors like Francois Mbemba said it was hellishly hot.
In Japan, the top officials issued a declaration of the most dangerous heat wave. They said that 20 out of 47 regions are predicted to experience extreme heat. The rest of the regions are predicted to experience heavy rains.
National Broadcasting Corporation
National Broadcasting Corporation NHK (Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai) has issued the worst heat forecast. They say that the temperature was recorded at 40 Celsius in various places including the capital. Around 40 degrees Celsius was recorded in the capital and other places.
Highest temperature in Japan
The highest temperature in Japan was recorded in Kamagaya City in 2018 at 41 degrees Celsius, the Meteorological Institute said.
A few places recorded the hottest heat in four decades on Sunday. The city of Hirono in Fukushima Prefecture recorded a temperature of 37.3 degrees Celsius
National waether Services
The National Weather Service in the U.S says that the heat wave extending from California to Texas is the most intense and warmest and will intensify on Saturday. Death Valley, California, which is known for its extreme heat, saw its highest temperature on Sunday, possibly exceeding 54 degrees Celsius.
Governments must take effective measures to control forest fires in order to avoid heat waves.
Efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Furthermore, efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change may lead to future heat waves and forest fires. are important to prevent escalation.
Heat waves and wildfires
Finally, dangerous heat waves and wildfires are spreading rapidly around the world. These extreme weather events pose significant threats to human lives, ecosystems, and the overall health of the planet. Urgent action is needed to address the root causes of climate change and to develop strategies to adapt to and mitigate the effects of heat waves and wildfires. Failure to do so could have disastrous consequences for our planet and future generations.
