Bangkok (VNA) – A Thai tutorial has mentioned if the Paris settlement on local weather change is
not enforced successfully, Southeast Asia could possibly be hit more durable by warmth waves than
different areas and Thailand can face extraordinarily scorching climate for as much as 220 days a
yr in about 20 years.

Professor
Seree Suparathit, Director of the Centre for Local weather Change and Disasters at
Rangsit College, mentioned that if the aim set by UN Local weather Change Convention
(COP21) held in Paris in December 2015 just isn’t reached, Southeast Asia, and
particularly Thailand, pays a heavy value.

The COP21 resolved to restrict world warming to beneath 2 levels
Celsius above pre-industrial ranges and pursue methods to restrict it to 1.5°C.

Based on Evaluation Report 5 (AR5) and Evaluation Report 6
(AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Local weather Change (IPCC), if the worldwide
temperature rises by 1.5°C, Thailand will likely be hit by warmth waves for 20 to 30
days within the northern, higher and center northeastern elements, and for 30 to 40
days within the central, decrease northeast and jap provinces.

If
the worldwide temperature rises 2°C, the variety of extraordinarily scorching days can be
50-60 within the North, center Northeast, and higher Northeast and 60-80 days within the
Central, East and decrease Northeast.

In
the worst-case state of affairs – if the worldwide temperature rises 4.5°C, warmth waves
could possibly be skilled for 180-220 days within the North, center and higher Northeast
and 220-240 days within the Central, East and decrease Northeast.

He mentioned all international locations should act
now to implement the COP21 decision./.
