March in the highest temperature

Do you think it is hot this spring? It is true if you feel so.

This March was globally warm according to the weather records. This February was beyond the average in recent years as well.

The Guardian: March temperature smashes 100-year global record

These records suggest global warming is not a fantasy. Indeed, climate change is often discussed in many countries. Even Pope Francis has mentioned it. It is an issue of which one of the global leaders of religion has to be concerned.

However, I do not feel this March was warm enough. Actually, the temperature was fluctuating in Japan. In addition, this year is not so hot compared to recent years in Tokyo.

Nonetheless, this graph seems to show a slight tendency of increasing temperature. If this trend is continuous, there will be many things affected. Researchers warn that melted ice in Southern pole will make many cities sunk in the ocean. It can be disastrous. On the other hand, global warming will let many of us survive in many regions. Coldness takes more lives than warmness in general. We can get more food in the warmer field.

My past entry: Climate change and rising of sea level

Influence of climate is so little at present for us that we hardly feel its change is decisive. But we should think seriously about it.
