Until 20125, we will become accustomed to extremely hot temperature. The fact that 2015 was registered to be the hottest year, it will become part of our natural routine for years to come. Global warming will no longer feel strange for us. It will be just a new habit we will get used to. We will comply thinking we cannot change it and we will face its effects.
- Researchers argue that soon extremely hot temperatures will become the norm.
- If we do not reduce dangerous gas emissions, then hot temperatures will engulf the planet.
The Bulletin of American Meteorological Society announced that if the dangerous gas emissions keep rising, then we will be forced to accept a new “normal” temperature. Based on the new researches, the lead author of the study Dr. Sophie Lewis, from the Australian National University (ANU) the leader of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS) claimed that boiling temperature will become the average temperatures around the globe until 2040.
Even if the average temperatures around the world were detained than there was still a chance for preventing the rise of carbon emissions. Dr. Lewis argued that if the gas emissions happen in the same amount as usual, then we will be forced to bear with extremely hot temperatures which will become the norm in a few years. The first change of this kind will happen for Australia.
For example, the hot summer of 2013 in Australia which registered temperatures of about 50 C and a lot bushfires will transform itself in a usual habit, becoming a regular season until 2035. The “angry summer” will be the usual summer of every year. That is indeed alarming. We will be boiling on this planet just because we are too stubborn now to change something for our benefit.
The decline of industries, infrastructures and profits attain us from reducing the dangerous gas emissions which will slowly set this planet on fire, making it tough for us to live in such hot temperatures. All we need to do to avoid this self-destruction process to happen is to drastically reduce the carbon emissions, following the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
If we take their advice, we will be safe, never entering into a normal state of extremely hot temperatures at a regional level. The “new normal” extreme seasons was the focus term of the new study. The complete definition of it, it represents the following years after a record year which registered hot or cold temperatures.
