The World Meteorological Organization: the hot weather will become the new norm 2016 or the hottest – Beijing International Online reports (reporter Liu Suyun in Geneva): the World Meteorological Organization in 16 in Geneva, said in a statement, the duration of the hot weather is more and more, this is likely to become the new norm in the future. All weather temperatures have broken records this year and 2016 is likely to be the hottest year on record. World Meteorological Organization spokesman Claire at a regular press conference held in Palace of Nations, Geneva, the main content of the statement. She said: We observed that the hot weather continued for a long time, which is likely to become the new normal in the future. As a result, there may be no more ‘unusual weather’ in the future, and ‘abnormal weather’ will be ‘normal weather’". According to the monitoring data of the United States and the European Union, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said that in July and of this year, it has become the hottest month. Up to now, all the temperature levels in 2016 have broken the historical record, is likely to become the hottest year since records. Among them, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached a new level, sea water temperature also rose to very high levels, and led to the history of the most serious coral bleaching events. Another reference to global warming is the Arctic sea ice area, the statement said. According to the latest figures released by the National Snow and Ice Data Center in September 15th, Arctic sea ice area reached its lowest level in September 10th, down 40% from the end of 1970s. It was also the second lowest level since records began in 2007. According to the meteorological organization, the ocean plays an important role in dealing with global warming, which absorbs 90% of the earth’s excess heat and carbon dioxide. Therefore, it is necessary to further study the impact of climate change on the ocean, and the influence of the ocean on rainfall, tropical cyclone intensity and extreme weather events. The world climate research program will be held in China in September 17th to discuss the issue. Claire also informed the Committee of experts of the world meteorological organization two new lightning record determined, one is the longest distance, another is the longest, the longest record of lightning occurred in June 2007 in the United States, Oklahoma, single lightning up to a distance of nearly 321 km; the longest duration of lightning is in in August 2012, in the south of France was monitored, lasted 7.74 seconds." The organization says lightning kills many people every year, especially in Africa, so it is necessary to strengthen the monitoring of lightning. At the same time, warming means more energy in the air and more tropical cyclones. And because of the heat and energy stored in the air, the intensity of lightning strikes will become even greater. The World Meteorological Organization says human activity is the main cause of global warming. The Meteorological Organization released the data, to urge States to take action as soon as possible, "the world meteorological organization passed to the leaders of the world’s information is approved, especially the implementation of the Paris agreement on climate change than ever more urgent, our planet has issued a distress signal, we.相关的主题文章:
