According to him, such a scenario is quite real. And this can happen, if not by 2050-2060, then by 2080. At that time, the air temperature on Earth will rise by 2-2.5 degrees relative to the end of the 19th century and will lead to the fact that the heat waves will cover our planet two to three times more often. “That is, the heat that happened once every 10 years will be observed every three years. You can live, but you have to adapt,” RIA Novosti quotes a specialist.
In the worst case, the temperature on Earth can rise by 4.5-5 degrees, and then eight or nine years out of 10 will be abnormally hot. It will become unbearable to be in a metropolis like Moscow in the summer. It is possible that later the capital can be made, for example, Krasnoyarsk or Novosibirsk, Kokorin suggested.
Earlier, the specialist said that 2025 or 2026 could be the hottest year in the history of meteorological observations. And this is due to the process of changing the phases of ocean currents, which will begin in the second half of this year.
