  • Current Record Levels of Heat may be the Norm by the Year 2030
 

It is being said that the current record levels of heat may be the norm by the time the year 2030 arrives.

The hottest year was 2015 and it could be that by the time 2025 arrives, the record heat levels would have become the new norm. If such is the case, humanity will be subject to lassitude and heat exhaustion thanks to the high temperatures.

The root cause of this heat wave during the summer months is carbon emissions. The novel research on the subject was published in the journal Bulletin of American Meteorological Society.

Yet by now, the fact is clear as the light of day, that it is almost too late. Even if we drastically reduce carbon emissions, the new normal temperatures during summer would skyrocket by the time 2040 arrives in all its futuristic and grim reality.

There is a slim chance of rewinding the climate change clock. Yet it will take enormous amounts of effort. It won’t be a walk in the park or a piece of cake. Were humanity to continue in its wreckless path of increasing carbon emissions, the future will be very bleak indeed. 

Australia will be the first nation to face record heat levels due to this mistake we are making. In 2013, in Australia, the record summer temperatures were 50 degrees Celsius.

Bushfires erupted in several regions due to  extreme and sultry heat. It was in fact so hot in the Land Down Under that it was termed the “angry summer”.

Yet the fact that this could be the new norm by 2035 is frightening to say the least. If we were to really reduce carbon emissions and build an environmentally-friendly society on earth, only then will the temperatures normalize. This, however, is a pipe dream since it cannot be accomplished in such a short time basis. 

The point about the record heat levels being the new normal has become a new definition of the stakes involved in the climate change game. It seems that we will have to act fast or we are going to be facing catastrophe on a grand scale.

Using a supercomputer, a series of model simulations were made regarding the future weather. Australia, Europe, Asia and North America were the countries that were put under the microscope.

There is hope yet for humanity but it will involve snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. The thing to remember is that we have one planet and only have one chance to save it from certain ruin.
