US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — In Siberia, recorded a new temperature record. This suggests that the rate of warming in the Arctic has accelerated record highs, reports the Daily Mail.
In Yakutia, the city of Verkhoyansk recorded a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius. The last time such a record was registered in 1915. In the history of meteorological observations, this temperature has become the highest.
Previously, researchers believed that such temperatures can only be expected by 2100. Thus, global warming in the Arctic exceeded the normal figure 80 years in advance. This week in Verkhoyansk 36 degrees of heat are expected.
It is noted that on May 23 in the Khatanga village of Krasnoyarsk, a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius was recorded, which is 11 degrees higher than the previously set record. It is specified that the heat caused fires in permafrost. Thus, a lot of greenhouse gas was released into the Earth’s atmosphere.
Earlier, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center, Roman Vilfand, said that 2020 will enter the top five hottest years. According to him, due to a steady increase in the content of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, each subsequent five-year period becomes a record.
