How climate change made this heatwave 30 times more likely

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “How climate change made this heatwave 30 times more likely” – below is their description.

The devastating heatwave in India and Pakistan was made 30 times more likely because of climate change, according to scientists.

And as the number of extreme weather events rises with alarming rapidity – new research shows that it’s not enough to cut harmful carbon dioxide emissions.

Instead – it warns – nations must tackle other pollutants like methane and nitrous oxide – if we are to keep global temperatures under control.
