Climate warning

Winter heatwave in Andes is sign of things to come,

Exceptional winter heat in the Andean mountains of South America has surged to 37C, prompting local scientists to warn the worst may be yet to come as human-caused climate disruption and El Niño cause havoc across the region. The heatwave in the central Chilean Andes is melting the snow below 3,000 metres (9,840ft), which will have knock-on effects for people living in downstream valleys who depend on meltwater during the spring and summer. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/aug/06/winter-heatwave-andes-sign-things-come-scientists-warn

              Havoc everywhere. If action is not taken ,the situation will go out of hand. El Nino is also destroying everything where it hits.

                  Those regions should make it necessary to take adaptation measures to avoid deaths and greater disasters.
