Heatwaves: Climate change increases the chances of being in India, the heat waves in Pakistan. Climate change makes historic heat waves in northwestern India and Pakistan more than 100 times greater, according to a Met Office study.
The region should now expect temperatures higher than the record recorded in 2010 and every three years.
Without climate change, such temperatures could only occur once in 312 years, says the Met Office.
Forecasts say temperatures in northwestern India could reach higher temperatures in the coming days.
This new analysis comes as a report by the State of the Climate World Meteorological Organization. A UN component of atmospheric science. Warns that four key climate change indicators set new records by 2021. Greenhouse gas emissions, sea level rise , sea temperature and sea acidity.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres described the report as “a vicious list of human failings to tackle climate change.”

What causes bad weather?
A tropical heat wave in the northwestern region of India and Pakistan has suffered in recent weeks. After high temperatures reached 51C in Pakistan on Saturday.
But temperatures look set to rise again later this week until the weekend, Met Office’s Global Guidance Unit warns.
It says temperatures are likely to reach as high as 50C in some areas, with constant cold overnight.
“Temperature has always been a factor in the pre-rainy weather in April and May,” said Dr. Nikos Christidis, who led a team of modern research.
“However, our research shows that climate change drives the temperature of these spheres causing temperatures to break records 100 times.”
Heatwaves In Pakistan and India
The new study is based on the heat waves that struck northwestern India and Pakistan in April and May 2010. When the region experienced the highest combined temperatures of April and May since 1900.
It seeks to measure the degree of Heatwaves that makes that and future events more likely.
These “adjective studies” involve the use of computer simulations. That compare how often a weather event can occur in two situations.
One depicts the climate as it is today, the other a climate. In which human influence is removed from greenhouse gases and other factors that contribute to climate change.
The scenarios are made up of 14 different computer models and produce. Because a wide range of different simulations to determine how climate change has changed the chances of an event happening.
The Met Office used the same method to assess the impact of future climate change (Heatwaves). And warned that the worst was yet to come.
If climate change follows the Central Office’s forecast. Because the end of the century India and Pakistan can expect the same temperatures almost every year, suggests a recent study.
