Asia's heatwave prompts climatologists' warning amid UN report on rising global temperatures

There are fresh warnings about soaring heat in south and south-east Asia as a UN report warns global temperatures will very likely hit new records within the next five years.

Parts of Pakistan nudged 50 degrees Celsius on Sunday, with Jacobabad hitting 49C.

Large parts of northern India are currently under continued heatwave warnings of similar extremes.

It is the latest in what has been a widespread and intense period of heat over the past two months, with records tumbling across several countries including China, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Bangladesh and India.

2. 130 F in five years.

Thatís my prediction.

We are at 500+ ppm CO2e.
