UK beats winter temperature record again
#2
As someone who has visited London before, the temperature in that region is certainly nothing to scoff at, it is very cold and can also be comparable to that of Canada's freezing environment, but that isn't to say that the statistics of the article pertaining to UK's climate is wrong. In fact, the unbiased statistics in the article is certainly strong evidence that the plunging temperature of chilly UK is soaring upwards to a warmer climate than it should be. I also agree with the interpretation that industrial complexes such as factories and a rapidly growing number of coal-based cars contribute massively to the climate change observable in this part of the world. I would also like to add on that the agricultural infrastructure contributes as well to the emission of obnoxious and excessive greenhouse gases. It is estimated that 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions come directly from the farm sector, this is taken from the website http://oecdobserver.org/news/archivestor...lture.html . A very notable way that agriculture produces GHGs is methane through the expelling of livestock's fecal matter. Methane is known to account for a smaller proportion of GHGs than carbon dioxide, however we now know that it traps multiple times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide, making it perhaps more influential to climate change than carbon dioxide. In the long term, we need to think about the effects our agricultural sector has, but humans' insatiable appetite makes it seem very unlikely that we will reduce the high amount of livestock that we farm for food and that produce methane.
