Weather of Arabia - Muhannad Fakhouri - The summer season begins from a meteorological and climatic perspective on the first of June of each year, and with it temperatures gradually rise, and hot to very hot air masses affect parts of the northern hemisphere, and some of these masses work to raise temperatures. A difference of several degrees from its normal and usual levels, and for a long period of time, then it is called a heat wave.

 

Increasing temperatures and breaking historic and unprecedented numbers in some countries

 

Over the past years, an increase in the number of heat waves has been observed, in addition to the long duration and intensity of their impact, and the breaking of records in several countries of the world. A new and historic record was recently recorded in India, on Wednesday 5/29/2024, when it reached 52.9 degrees Celsius, specifically. In the capital, New Delhi, in the Mungeshpur neighborhood, this led to the death of a citizen.

 

Does climate change play a role in setting these records?

 

In fact, according to the experts at the Arab Weather Center, climate change has been increasing in recent years, causing an increase in the number and intensity of heat waves, and recording historic and unprecedented temperatures, due to global warming and the increase in the amount of harmful emissions resulting from human activities, which... It leads to an increase in the temperature of the planet, and the World Meteorological Organization has warned of an increase in the possibility of the planet’s temperature rising by 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of 2026, as this will have a negative impact on humans and all creatures.

 

What actions are needed to reduce this change?

 

The use of alternative, clean and renewable energy is considered one of the most important measures that must be applied and activated in all countries of the world. The energy sources used in various means of heating must also be modified, instead of using boilers that operate through fuel in its various forms, which also works to increase the percentage of carbon dioxide. In the air and atmosphere, we must use heat pumps that operate using electrical energy. In addition, we must pay attention to planting trees, creating forests, and preserving the forests spread around the world from fires and unjust cutting, as forests and trees work to absorb carbon dioxide gas. Carbon through photosynthesis and oxygen production, thus working to reduce harmful emissions.
