The hottest day of 2016 so far was 19th July, with temperatures reaching an impressive 33.4C at Pershore. It means that, at this point, the country was hotter than Barcelona. Despite this peak the following month has been rather wet, yet, the heat has remained high. Of course, people’s first reaction has been to blame global warming and cite the continued rise that has been logged.
Is the cause of this hot weather actually global warming? Will we continue to see it rise? How can we prepare for it?
Why the Rise?
Climate change is the ultimate culprit for this rising weather. This means that heat waves in England are more than twenty times more likely than ever before. As human influence means that the heat will continue to rise, it also means that every year will be hotter than the last. From the 17th century – as far back as temperature records exist – there has been a marked change in the rise of heat.
As a result of human activity, the warmth will continue to rise in central England over the next few decades. But, this also means that stormy weather following this is also on the rise and the recent storms have been an example of this. People have been advised to take care, even during this rainy period as the sun can still cut through clouds unseen and cause burning.
The Need for Air Conditioning
So, because of the rising heat, the way people deal with it will need to change. Such over encompassing heat means that more solutions will need to be found. Many homes in the UK do not currently have air conditioning, though most newly built office buildings do as it has become an integrated part of building planning. A whole country, for the most part, is therefore in need of finding a solution to the rising heat.
In order to stay cool, both at work and home, people must invest in air conditioning. In order to keep your business running smoothly no matter the weather, air conditioning can be a lifesaver.
