Scorching Heatwaves and Fires as Climate Change, Moves Swiftly into Full Gear
Scorching heatwaves have hit most of Europe, Africa, and Asia in June and July. The heat and dry air are fueling wildfires across the Eastern Hemisphere of the globe.
In the figure below it is obvious that heating is happening all across the upper portion of the three continents on the eastern portion of the globe. The map shows the temperatures across most of the Eastern hemisphere on July 13, 2022. This is a combined representation of observations locally and atmospherically with the Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS) global model. The GEOS uses mathematical equations to represent physical processes in the atmosphere.
Steven Pawson, the chief of the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center has reported, that while there is a clear pattern of an “atmospheric wave”, which alternates warm (redder) and cool (bluer) values in different locations. There is an enormous area of extreme (and record-breaking) heat, which is another clear indicator that emissions from greenhouse gases fueled by human activity are causing weather extremes that directly impact living conditions.

Many scientists believe that the continued political climate will resolve too late to actually help the world’s populations. And many countries are already without resources to battle greenhouse gas effects. But the mitigation efforts must be taken away from a political debate. We no longer see a clear path, but there is a path if we act. Action against greenhouse gases and emissions could be enacted immediately, with the help of a pipeline like Earth Sygns.
