Mankind is creating an ultimate catastrophe that has never existed before. At the beginning of 2019, Australia in the southern hemisphere was completely reduced to “purgatory on earth.” Since the strongest heat wave after World War II hit, the extreme high temperature of 50 degrees is scorching this land. On land, hundreds of thousands of bats were scorched to death by the sun, and their bodies were everywhere, and their deaths were miserable; in the river, millions of fish died due to the outbreak of blue algae caused by high temperature, and the bodies floated for more than 40 kilometers… The people are too hot to live, and the lives are disheartened.
In any case, it is hard to imagine that this is the once picturesque and spring-like Australia. But in fact, the heat wave that swept across Australia in January 2019 was nothing more than a continuation of the global warming disaster last year. One year later, not only did the earth not get better, but it started to become ill…

Since 2018, all regions have been severely affected by high temperature disaster
Last year, the earth had just experienced a high fever. In July 2018, the temperature of the Arctic Circle was as high as 32°C. Polar bears could not find food on the melting ice floes. They either starved to death or drowned… Not only polar bears were affected, but also Arctic musk ox, arctic fox, Arctic seabirds are on the brink of extinction because of the reduction in sea ice.
On March 18, 2019, a forest fire broke out in Ma’an Village, Jingjiu Township, Xichang City, Liangshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province. The fire spread quickly towards Lushan, Xichang.
On the land, hundreds of thousands of bats were scorched to death by the sun alive and dead.
What’s more disturbing is that the melting rate of Antarctic glaciers is no slower than that of the Arctic.
Groups of Antarctic penguins crowded on a thin piece of sea ice are everywhere. Many penguins keep their heads down and motionless, they look tired and hungry. Because of the melting of Antarctic glaciers, the habitat of Antarctic penguins is also decreasing at an incredible rate. Krill, the food penguins rely on for survival, because the water temperature is rising less and less, many small penguins can’t follow the big penguins to swim far away to hunt, and starve to death before they grow up.
According to data released by NASA, in the past 26 years, Antarctic glaciers have lost as much as 3 trillion tons. Of these 3 trillion tons, almost half of the glaciers have disappeared in the past five years. In other words, the melting speed of glaciers is getting faster and faster!
The glaciers in Antarctica have melted and the homes of penguins have disappeared. The British “Nature Climate Change” magazine wrote in a scientific report: If global warming is not suppressed, by 2100, the number of Antarctic penguins may drop by 40 to 99%, and Antarctic penguins will become extinct in this century!
However, global warming has never endangered not only the animals in the North and South Pole, but also the seven continents and four oceans, and the thousands of creatures on the earth, including human beings!
In Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, more than 35% of the coral reefs under the sea are facing “bleaching”. Once, they were so colorful and full of vitality; but now a whole 1,500 kilometers of coral reefs withered and died, lying quietly on the bottom of the water, like a pile of bones, like a cemetery. In the entire coral reef area, it is almost impossible to see fish, and the silence is terrifying. Because of global warming and the warming of the sea, the symbiotic algae in the coral reefs died, leaving only patches of appalling white bones. Once they die, they will never be resurrected and will never be saved again.
Apart from the seabed, the land surface is not optimistic. On July 15, 2018, a forest fire broke out in Kapaul, Sweden. In the photo taken by someone, two people are standing in the field, watching the fire burning the field to the scorched earth, but they can do nothing.
Because of the ultra-high temperature and the combustibility of trees, and the warming rate in the northern hemisphere is faster than the global warming rate, such natural fires abound last year. In Canada, Quebec has encountered wildfires not seen in 1,000 years. In California on the other side, the situation is not optimistic. In the summer of 18, California has become a California on fire.
According to the California Forestry Department and the Fire Department, the California mountain fire spread to 800 square kilometers, and thousands of houses were burned down. Despite the emergency evacuation, 6 people were still buried in the flames. The wildfires of the century burned all over the world, with thick smoke billowing like the end of the world. In Greece, wildfires burned out of control, because the fire was so intense that traffic was paralyzed.

From the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere, the whole earth is feverish
Compared with the domestic surface temperature of 40°C, the country like the United Kingdom, which is located in a high latitude area and has a low temperature all year round, should not be hot anymore, right? However, the fact is that the temperature in the UK has exceeded 30°C last summer, and the British people are miserable. The Met Office even issued the first “yellow” health warning in 2018.
In parts of the United Kingdom, a record of 50 days of no rain was set. It was so hot that there was a fire in the big swamp of Saddleworth, which can be seen from 15 kilometers away. Some railway tracks in Britain were even deformed by the heat, and some railways were forced to be interrupted. Even railways that can operate have begun to limit speed and time limits, causing a large number of passengers to be stranded. What is more frightening is that most buses and subways do not have air conditioning. In Finland and Germany, the high temperature melted the asphalt roads, and many roads were temporarily closed. Highway No. 10 in Berlin, Germany, was directly hot and burst. Affected by the heat wave, Switzerland experienced a high temperature of 30°C, while the temperature of the asphalt road was as high as 50-55°C. The Swiss police put on small shoes for police dogs and launched a “hot dog campaign” to encourage citizens to do the same.
