Deadly heat.


In Vietnam, the highest temperature recorded in the entire history of Vietnam was recorded when mercury rose to 110 ° F (43.3 ° C) in April.
According to the forecast of the French meteorological agency Meteo France, on Saturday the Huong Khe region, located in the province of Ha Tinh, about 150 miles south of the capital of Hanoi, has experienced record heat.

The temperature in the tourist cities of Danang and Hue also rose to 100ºF (37.6 ° C), while in Ho Chi Minh on Monday it was 95ºF (35 ° C), according to one newspaper.

Record highs deserve special attention, given their appearance in April, a few months before summer heat was supposed to start in most parts of Vietnam.

“Because of the heat, it’s impossible to breathe on the street,” said Phuong Hoang, who was in Hue at the weekend. “It’s very hard to spend your day at this temperature.”
The years 2015–2018 were the four warmest in the entire history of observations, which is a sign of long-term climate change around the world.

In January, Australia experienced an increase in temperature in some areas up to 120ºF (48.8 ° C). Last summer, Japan also recorded a new maximum of 106ºF (41 ° C) during the deadly heat.

In recent months, there have been many demonstrations around the world, and protesters have demanded that the leaders take urgent action. It is estimated that last month 1.6 million students took to the streets in more than 120 countries, and in London, the environmental group Extinction Rebellion has organized regular protest actions since mid-April.

In the last article, we talked about how in Japan we started selling the air of the “past era”, but perhaps the whole world will soon have to buy just cool and clean air, because according to scientists, global temperatures can increase by 1.5 ° C , which will lead to serious consequences – by 2030, if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current pace.
