New Delhi: The effect of severe heat is being seen in many countries of the world. In many states of India too, the mercury has reached close to 50. A study on the rapidly increasing temperature has revealed that last year, due to climate change, people living on earth had to bear an average of 26 days of extra heat. Scientists say that if there was no climate change, this situation would not have arisen. Last year, the highest heat was recorded on earth. A major reason for this is the burning of fossil fuels. The study has found that about 80 percent of the world's population is facing abnormal heat since last May.

The study has revealed that if we had not heated the earth, it would not have been so hot. Scientists have made this estimate by creating a mathematical model of the earth's temperature. The amount of difference in heat is different everywhere. In some countries, there was excessive heat for only two or three weeks. Whereas in countries like Colombia, Indonesia and Rwanda, there was excessive heat for more than 120 days.

Andrew Pershing, one of the scientists involved in the study, said that we have put too much burden on nature. Climate change caused 120 days of extra heat in parts of South America and Africa. The report released on Tuesday has been prepared jointly by three groups monitoring climate change. These include Climate Central, Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Center and World Weather Attribution.

This was revealed in a study conducted in India
On the other hand, a new research by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bhubaneswar has found that nights in more than 140 major cities in India are 60 per cent warmer than their surrounding non-urban areas due to urbanisation. Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Rajkot were the most affected by urbanisation, while Delhi-National Capital Region ranked fourth and Pune fifth.
