Abnormally high temperature in Siberia "It would not have happened without the effects of global warming" 12:40, July 19


In recent years, a team of research institutions such as Britain and Russia summarized a report that the abnormal high temperature that continued in Siberia in Russia was a phenomenon that could hardly occur without the influence of global warming. It was

In Siberia, Russia, the average temperature from January to June was more than 5 degrees higher than the average temperature from the same period from 1981 to 2010, and 38 degrees, which is considered the highest ever in the Arctic, was observed. did.

This was simulated by a team of researchers from research institutes in the United Kingdom, Russia, etc. using an observation model for investigating the effects of global warming. You know that it was a phenomenon that occurred only once in every million years.

If climate change continues, the average temperature in the region will increase by 0.5 to 5 degrees by 2050 compared to the present level.

The research team argues that such high temperatures in Siberia may melt permafrost, releasing methane in the ground and triggering forest fires, and more greenhouse gases may be emitted. Is suing.

``As climate change advances, we will need to prepare for heat waves even in places we had never imagined before,'' said Friederike Otto, an associate professor of the research team.

Expert "Otoshito also the heat wave of Japan in July"

Regarding this report, Masata Emori, Deputy Director of the Center for Global Environmental Research, National Institute for Environmental Studies, said, "Otoshito's extreme heat in Japan will be almost the same as this time, unless there is climate change due to human activities. We know that it couldn't have happened. If climate change advances, it can lead to even more record heats. It should be an opportunity to realize the need to stop climate change."
