The “hot dome” (a phenomenon that, due to the stagnation of air masses, overheats the atmosphere) covering a large part of Europe, the forest fire because of drought suffered in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Canada, and Hawaii, or in high temperatures in the middle of winter in South America are the direct consequences of global warming that has affected the world in recent times.
“Heat waves can be more intense and frequent. This is the result of global warming that we can see very quickly reflected in weather systems“, AFP stated John Nairnextreme heat expert World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The expert regrets that the scientists warned about this phenomenon: “People are very relaxed about signs“. Nairn recommends focusing attention on an uninterrupted increase in night minimum not in solar heat records.
Repeatedly high temperatures at night are especially dangerous to human health because the body cannot recover from the heat it suffered during the day. Higher overnight lows also mean that the energy accumulated during the day has nowhere to go; rather, it increases the temperature the next day.
Thus we arrive at “longer periods of high temperature” commented the scientist, making sure that the situation threatens to worsen.

Record temperatures in South America
The situation in regions such as South America is of the greatest concern to specialists, which have reached heat records in recent weeks, with temperatures up to 40ºC in this it’s supposed to be winter.
In the future”we will see more heat waves for longer periods of the year“.
While on tropical and subtropical regions, “Everything shows that extreme and extreme heat waves threaten to happen anytime before the end of the century.“.
When asked about a possible solution to this development, Nairm speculated that “We all can reverse the trend“.”Everything must be brought to electricity (…) and stop burning fossil fuels. There is nothing more complicated than this” he explained.
