What do we know about the effects of climate change on global temperatures?
The world is experiencing a record-setting El Niño, which has caused temperatures to soar globally.
However, it’s still not clear how much of that increase is the result of the extreme weather event.
Here’s a look at how scientists are tracking the record-breaking event.
What is El Niño?
The term “El Niño” refers to a series of events that occur when the tropical Pacific Ocean warms, causing warmer waters to form and cooler water to sink, forming a chain reaction that pushes the Earth’s climate towards extremes.
In the summer of 1997, scientists were forecasting an El Niño would be a record breaker, with the average surface temperature of the tropics climbing by as much as 4°C (7°F) in just a few years.
The event, dubbed “The Warming of the Tropics,” came to be known as the “Warming of Tropics.”
But since then, scientists have been scrambling to figure out what caused the phenomenon, and whether this phenomenon can be reversed. The El Niño has produced extreme weather in several places, including California, which experienced a heat wave in November.
A study published this week in Nature Climate Change said the El Niño’s warming could be responsible for an increase in the number of tornadoes in the United States.
How many tornadoes have there been in the US?
Between May and October of this year, the National Hurricane Center reported 1,715 tornadoes, with some tornadoes exceeding 100 mph (130 kph).
A tornadic storm is defined as a tornado with winds of at least 100 mph, and can be devastating.
The tornado season runs from March through October.
Are there more tornadoes now than ever?
In 2017, the average number of days with a tornado was 3.4 per day, up from 2.9 days in 2016.
In the year before, in 1997, the record low tornado count was 1,632 days.
What is the probability of a tornado reaching a building?
As the planet warms and the Earth warms as well, we’ll be experiencing more and more tornados.
But tornadoes are relatively rare.
Scientists are trying to figure how many tornados are likely to reach a building before it’s built.
The National Hurricane Centers average tornado count for the year is 1,100, and the tornado risk is 1 in 100,000.
The odds of being struck by a tornado at home is one in 100.
However these are relatively small odds.
So, it would seem that the odds of a building being hit by a storm in the U.S. in the future are significantly lower than they are in the past.
