Мир ожидает новое изменение климата

2019 may be the hottest in history.

Climate scientists fear that because of the climatic phenomena El niño 2019 will be the hottest year in the history of mankind.

The consequences of El niño in recent years has been more severe due to global warming, and the consequences will be worse as the temperature continues to rise, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference for a New time.

El Nino – the temperature variation of surface layer water in the Equatorial Pacific ocean, has a significant impact on the climate. At the same time weaken or even stop the trade winds. The opposite phase of temperature fluctuations is called La niña.

There is an 80 percent chance that a full-fledged El niño has already begun and will last at least until the end of February 2019, according to the Center for climate prediction at the National oceanic and atmospheric administration.

“It is possible that due to El Nino in 2019 will be the hottest year,” said study co-author Samantha Stevenson, a scientist, a climatologist at the University of California in Santa Barbara.

The last event El niño is over in 2016, and it was due to catastrophic coral bleaching in the Great barrier reef, strong droughts in Africa, South America and some parts of the Pacific and South-East Asia and forest fires in Indonesia and Canada. While the current El niño, expected to not be so serious, it can still lead to dangerous weather.

According to the world meteorological organization, carbon dioxide emissions have increased over the past four years and reached a record level. Heat waves have led to remarkable performance loss in 2018, because it was often too hot to work or is even safe to go outside. Incredible 153 billion hours of labor were destroyed last year because of the heat, almost three times more than in 2000.

The Earth’s climate was warmer than the average for the 20th century the last of 406 consecutive months. This means that no one under the age of 32 years never faced familiar to the 20th century the cold months.
