Global warming is behind extreme weather events: NCC expert – ecns

A senior expert from China’s National Climate Center (NCC) has said that climate change is fueling the extreme weather events that hit the world this year – wildfires, heatwaves, torrential rains, drought, floods and storms.

“The occurrence of climate anomalies is due to the accelerating pace of global warming. If the global warming trend does not change, the frequent, strong and concurrent occurrence of extreme weather events will not change,” Zhou Bing, chief expert on climate services, NCC, said on October 27.

From 2011 to 2020, the global land surface temperature increased by 1.09 degrees Celsius compared with pre-industrial levels, of which about 1.07 degrees Celsius was caused by human activities. The global average temperature in 2020 was about 1.2 degrees Celsius higher than pre-industrial levels, according to NCC.
