Global warming has long been condemned without question behind the documented leap in median global temperature on the Earth’s surface; around an increase of 0.6C out of a total 0.8C in the previous three decades alone, as asserted in the IPCC Fifth assessment report (2013). The research paper seeks to provide valuable information to draw out clear implications of anthropogenic climate change and help identify its ominous connection to the rise in severity and recurrence of weather hazards and extremes, whilst also emphasizing the need to acknowledge this growing connection and hence develop fitting adaptation and mitigation approaches.
Geologically over the past, atmosphere temperatures have varied several times from natural factors like changes in the sun’s force, intensified volcanic activity, vacillations in Earth’s circle; interestingly not one of these natural causes attribute to the present ascent in worldwide temperatures. An overwhelming number of scientific measurements and studies point to escalating greenhouse gas emissions from human factors like industrialization, fossil fuel burning – trapping excess heat in the Earth’s atmosphere, leading to warmer temperatures, recurrently referred to as global warming – being the predominant factor behind witnessing the Earth’s twelve hottest years since 1998 alone (Rogers, 2018).
In recent periods notably this increased climate change has led to even variable and extreme weather patterns, such as a significant rise in intense climatic hazards worldwide, concretely floods, droughts, heat waves and hurricanes.
