Madagascan heatwave ‘virtually impossible’ without human-caused global heating

A record-breaking heatwave in Madagascar in October would have been “virtually impossible” without human-caused global heating, a study has shown. The extreme temperatures affected millions of very poor people but the damage to their lives was not recorded by officials or the media. Many governments in Africa lack the capabilities to record climate impacts. The scientists behind the report said this lack of information made implementing measures to avoid deaths very difficult.https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/nov/23/madagascar-record-heatwave-climate-crisis-study

            @esther_wanjiku_785 I agree,, human activities play a major role in causing the heat waves, and yet most are concerned with making more profits.

            This serves as a reminder of the urgent need to address climate change and reduce our carbon footprint to prevent further devastating impacts on our planet.

                          The study highlighting that the record-breaking heatwave in Madagascar in October was "virtually impossible" without human-caused global heating underscores the direct link between anthropogenic climate change and extreme weather events. The fact that the damage to the lives of millions of very poor people was not adequately recorded due to limitations in monitoring capabilities reveals a critical gap in addressing the impacts of climate change, particularly in regions with insufficient resources.

                                @rukia_ahmed_abdi This study only emphasizes the role humans have played in the destruction of the ecosystem and only he can create a reversal through immediate interventions
