Climate warning

Record breaking 52.2°C temperature hit China on Sunday,stoking fears of drought.

China recorded a record-breaking temperature of 52.2°C on Sunday 16 July.The searing heat hit the remote northwest township of Sanbao in Xinjiang's Turpan Depression as reported by state-run newspaper Xinjiang. The previous high temperature of 50.3°C was recorded in 2015 in Ayding,also in Turpan a vast basin of sand dunes and dried up lakes more than 150 metres below sea level.Record hear is expected to persist in the region for at least another five days. Prolonged bouts of high temperature in China have challenged power grids and crops,and concerns are mounting of a possible repeat of last year's drought,the most severe in 60 years. The target of keeping long term global warming within 1.5°C is moving out of reach,climate experts say. https://www.euronews.com/green/2023/07/17/record-breaking-522c-temperature-hit-china-on-sunday-stoking-fears-of-drought

                  China should work on its carbon emissions as it is one of the countries that emits the most.
