Record-smashing heat extremes may become much more likely with climate change – study says

Turkey. Canada. Northern lreland. Antarctica. AII recorded their hottest-ever temperatures in the last two years, and according to a new study, more such extremes are coming In the next three decades, “record-shattering” heat waves could become two to seven times more frequent in the world than in the last 30 years, scientists report in a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change. Beyond 2050, if current greenhouse gas emissions trends continue, such record-breaking heat waves could be three to 21 times more frequent, the study found.

Even with the records seen in 2021, “we havent
seen anything close to the most intense heat
waves possible under today’s climate, let alone
the ones we expect to see in the coming decades” said co-author Erich Fischer, a climate
scientist at ETH Zurich. For the study, the researchers used climate modeling to calculate the likelihood of record- breaking heat that lasted at least seven days and far surpassed earlier records.

Communities preparing for climate change need to be preparing for such extremes, he said. “Every time record temperatures or precipitation go well beyond what we’ve experienced during our lifetime, that’s usually when we’re unprepared and the damage is largest’ Fischer said.

Last month’s Canadian heat wave killed
hundreds of people and reached 121 Fahrenheit
(49.6 Celsius) – an eye-popping 8 degrees
Fahrenheit (4.6 degrees Celsius) above the
country’s previous record, set in 1937.

“We should no longer be surprised if we see
records smashed by large margins,” Fischer said. If greenhouse gas emissions are aggressively cut, the likelihood of heat waves would remain high but the chances of exceeding records would eventually fall over time, the study suggests.

The new research shows that “we must expect extreme event records to be broken not just by small margins, but quite often by very large ones,” climate scientist Rowan Sutton at the University of Reading’s National Centre for Atmospheric Science said in a statement.

“This highlights the huge challenge to improve
preparedness, build resilience and adapt society to conditions that have never previously been experienced, Sutton said. The study was released as scientists with the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
begin two weeks of virtual meetings to
finalize their next global climate science

Canada installs first indigenous governor general, highlights reconciliation

Canada installed an indigenous woman as its governor general on Monday, the first such person to hold the post, in an elaborate ceremony that spotlighted the country’s effort to reconcile with its colonial past. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau named Mary Simon- a former journalist, ambassador, and Inuit community advocate – to serve as the
representative in Canada of its head of state,
Queen Elizabeth, earlier this month. Simon is the first indigenous person to take on the role, created more than 400 years ago to represent the colonial power on North American soil.

The change comes as Canada grapples with
the legacy of its treatment of indigenous people. “We need people like Ms. Simon because we need people who build bridges and bring us
together Trudeau said at the ceremony. Since May, hundreds of unmarked graves of children have been discovered at former “residential schools,” run for indigenous children forcibly separated from their families in what a Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called “cultural genocide.

“I have heard from Canadians who describe a
renewed sense of possibility for our country and hope that l can bring people together Simon, 73, said after being installed. The ceremony, broadcast by the Canadian
Broadcasting Corp also in Simon’s native
Inuktitut language, was scaled back and masks
were worn due to COVID-19. A drummer
accamnanied her entrv inta the Senate uhera were worn due to COVID-19.

A drummer accompanied her entry into the Senate where she took an oath. The governor general performs functions such as swearing in governments and formally signing legislation, but is also the commander in chief of the military and can summon or dissolve Parliament.

Comedienne helen Paul opens up on divorce, scandals and losing her pregnancy.

Helen Paul, who is now a lecturer in the United States of America has said that divorce and other scandals were part of what a particular celebrity management personnel asked her to entangle herself into, to be able to get followers on Instagram.

The happily married mother of three said this in a recent Instagram live session.

Read her words below

“I once told someone that I really loved his work and that I would like to work with him. I had seen him manage two female artistes successfully.

However, his response was, “Helen, if I am going to work with you, you may not like my pattern. We may have to create one or two scandals for you so that the crowd can ‘follow’ you’. I then asked him what type of scandals he meant. He told me to check up on people that had about 10 million followers (on social media). He also stated that the scandal could be a divorce or any other controversial issue. He said that when I did that, I would get (more) followers. Healso stated that after some time, I should begin doing charitable acts that would cover up any unpleasant thing I had done. He felt that the most important thing was to have many followers. There is a lot of manipulation out there and some times, one cold be tempted to consider doing those things. Sometimes, I am tempted to post (on social media) some of the materials possessions I have acquired. But, I am blessed to have people that call me to order. So, I am not able to show off, and that could be painful too.”

The actress also revealed that she once lost a two-month pregnancy while on a motorcycle. She said, “I am comfortable working with guys, I have a problem working with ladies. I had more than five commercial motorcycle riders on standby. In case there was traffic, they would pick me up from any location. One day, I was going for a show and I was two months pregnant. I was with a friend named Frank and it was on that bike I lost my pregnancy. I told Frank that something was wrong with my stomach and that I was stained with blood. He checked my clothes and said I was stained with the blood of my menstrual cycle. I told him then that I had lost my pregnancy. At my instruction, I was taken to a hospital in Ikeja, Lagos State. The hospital cleaned me up but sadly, I could not attend the show I was rushing to.”
