Extreme Weather and Climate Change in Chinese

One of the most visible consequences of a warming world is an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events. Emissions from the burning of fossil fuels have been trapping heat in the atmosphere since the start of the industrial era. As a consequence, average temperatures have risen by 1.2C.

Climate change influences severe weather by causing longer droughts and higher temperatures in some regions and more intense deluges in others, say climate experts.

Here are several impacts climate change is contributing to extreme weather. Heatwaves, deadly floods and wildfires – every year people are having to confront the link between extreme weather and climate change. Do you know how to express these impacts in Chinese?
