China’s temperatures are rising faster than global average

China’s temperatures are rising faster than global average

China's weather bureau said the country was "a sensitive region in global climate change"

China's average ground temperatures have increased faster than the global average over the past 70 years. It is expected to remain significantly higher in the future as well. In the annual climate assessment, which was published this week, China's weather bureau said the country was "a sensitive region in global climate change," with temperatures rising 0.26 degrees Celsius (0.47 degrees Fahrenheit) a decade since 1951, compared to the global average of 0.15 degrees. It warned that the changing weather patterns in China would adversely affect the balance of water resources and make the ecosystems vulnerable.

Extreme weather has caused havoc in recent weeks, with lengthy heatwaves causing droughts and forest fires across the world. Historically high rainfall in some countries has also caused deadly floods. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned last month that "no nation is immune" from climate change and said the world now had to choose between "collective action or collective suicide." China has already braved through weeks of torrid weather, with temperatures reaching in excess of 44C (111F) in southwestern Yunnan and Hebei in the north.
