Although it’s undoubtedly true that most of us look forward to warmer weather after trudging through the Fall and Winter seasons, it’s important to be cautious during such times.
One alarming global trend you may have noticed in your neck of the woods is the increasing number of hot days. Temperatures have been rising and hot days are happening more frequently, so much so that many regions across the globe have been experiencing fewer cold days during the winter.
Climate change over the past decade has brought many regions to record high temperatures which have been occurring in many cases twice as often as record lows, and that’s just across the continental United States. Back in the 1950s, it was closer to a 1:1 ratio. Heatwaves are starting to become more and more common.
How Warmer Temperatures Affect Weather Conditions
Several threats can result from extreme heat. Higher temperatures can augment such disasters asstorms, floods, and heatwaves. Warmer climates give way to an atmosphere that is more prone to collect, retain, and drop moisture, which can drastically change weather patterns.
Additional Impact of Hotter Temperature
Heat also has a way of exacerbating drought. Hot and dry conditions can negatively impact agriculture, physical and mental health, not to mention increase energy demand. When a community is experiencing higher temperatures many individuals rely on air conditioning for comfort, which can compromise energy reliability, causepower outages, and even lead to rolling blackouts.
Extreme heat and warmer temperatures can also exacerbate wildfires. Hot and dry conditions increase the threat of wildfire and increase a wildfire’s ability to spread, which will ultimately cause more damage.
Rising temperatures pose a threat to individuals and their communities, the economy, as well as entire ecosystems. It’s easy to feel helpless in such scenarios, however, there is a lot you can do to make a positive impact.
Strategies for Combating Extreme Heat
Having an extreme heat preparedness plan will help you successfully navigate periods of extreme heat. You can modify your home with green roofs and plant trees around the house, which will provide shade and cool air via evapotranspiration. Making your home more energy efficient will reduce grid stress, especially during warm weather and heatwaves.
