Quotes from the news wire:
One such example is a cold snap, which can happen due to sudden changes in atmospheric circulation and may not be linked to climate change, texas is a good example of this ; even though parts of it experienced extreme cold weather earlier this year when air from the Arctic was pushed south, looking at the long-term change in temperature tells us that Texas is 1.5 degrees warmer on average now than it was 100 years ago. That's climate.
Although global temperatures have risen by about 1.1 degrees in the past 150 years on average, different parts of the globe have warmed at different rates due to natural variations in the climate system such as cloud cover, land cover and atmospheric circulation patterns, earth's poles have warmed faster than anywhere else, primarily due to melting ice and snow. Although Antarctica has had a cold winter this year, over the past few decades the most northerly parts of Antarctica have warmed five times faster than the global average -- that's faster than anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere.
Extreme heat and humidity can pose severe health risks to people who have to endure them -- on average the world now experiences an extra 14 days a year with temperatures of 45 C than 40 years ago, that's why I hope we will see nations enhancing their commitments to tackling climate change at COP26 in just a few week's time.
