Scientists Sought a Link Between Global Warming and Extreme Weather

Global warming has generated a huge debate for a long period of time. There has also been a huge cry that has emerged to implement necessary measures to curb the change in the weather condition that have been linked to global warming.

But a recent heat wave that has engulfed huge parts of the US in the early march has highlighted the debate once again. This extreme change in weather condition have again pinpointed possible links between long-term climate change and what appears to be more frequent extreme weather events.

The scientists do not term these two scenarios as just a coincidence. According to a statistical analysis done by people at Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany a pattern has emerged in the chain of extreme weather events that have been undergoing in recent times. The extreme rainfalls and heat waves can be traced back to global warming.

There is an urgent need to curb the harmful emissions of gases responsible for global warming. The Earth’s surface is heating up due to it, as the emission of these gases has increased multifold. In return, the ecological balance of nature has altered over a long time, leading to the sudden changes in weather. The countries all over the globe are witnessing extreme weathers that are not common to them.

The U. S. was a witness to 14 extreme weather events in 2011 alone, while Russia experienced hottest summer in centuries. All these factors cannot be coincidences. There has to be some link between them. It is like tumbling pieces of dominoes. If one piece falls there is a repercussion that enables all of them to fall. There has to be proper checks and balances in place in order to keep life sustainable on this planet.
