极端天气气候事件风险加剧


China has reported rising extreme weather events like heavy precipitation and high temperatures, according to an official blue paper released Wednesday. The blue paper, issued by the China Meteorological Administration, showed that extreme heat events and the average intensity fluctuation of typhoons landing in China have also increased since the 1990s.
中国气象局8月4日发布的《中国气候变化蓝皮书(2021)》显示,近年来,我国强降水、高温等极端事件呈增多趋势。自20世纪90年代以来,极端高温事件增多,登陆中国台风的平均强度波动增强。


However, the paper showed a decreasing trend of extremely low-temperature events, the average number of days with dusty weather in northern China, and acid rain.
但极端低温事件、北方地区平均沙尘日数、酸雨均呈减弱减少趋势。


Multiple indicators of the climate system suggest that China is likely to face more extreme weather events as global warming continues, according to the paper.
蓝皮书称,气候系统的多项关键指标表明,全球气候变暖仍在持续,我国遭遇极端天气气候事件的风险进一步加剧。
