Monthly heat records have increased fivefold

According to a study conducted by researchers from Spain and Germany, due to the global warming of the planet every month there are more and more new temperature records, and the frequency of their occurrence has increased five-fold. In many parts of Europe, Africa and South Asia, the incidence of temperature records has increased by 10 times.

Monthly heat records have increased fivefold

That is the conclusion of scientists pushed data over the last 130 or so years of observation and analysis of monthly temperature on the planet. In this case, the control data were taken at 12 thousand points over the earth, which are then stored in the database NASA.
The last decade has been particularly rich in heat waves. The most memorable of them covered the U.S. in 2012. In 2010, the heat wave is literally burns the expanses of Russia. In 2009, the terrible heat prevailed in Australia, and in 2003 in Europe. And if the factor of human activity affecting global warming, may be excluded, 80% of the temperature record simply would not be, say in Spain and Germany.
If the pace of climate change will remain at the same level in the next 30 years, every month, we will see 12 times the temperature records. Of course, this does not mean that Europe will be the 12 hottest summers anymore. It will be much worse, as the new, hot temperature records of each new year will be exceeded records next year, there is even more critical, sky-high temperatures.
