19/07/18, Diyun: High temperatures have continued in Diyun and many others areas in the state. People have taken various precautionary measures to beat the heat like covering their heads.
From the last two days there was heat wave condition in many areas of Diyun. Though there is no official confirmation from meteorological department but today's 39 degree Celsius at noon is the highest temperature recorded in the area.
Also Humidity makes the hot days more miserable. Because of humidity, which is a measure of the air’s water vapor content, the body’s perspiration evaporates from the skin at a much slower rate.
Diyun's climate has changed rapidly in the last two decades. Most of these climate changes are attributed to indiscriminate clearing of green cover in Diyun and surrounding areas.
Seeing Diyun, one can understand that the rapid climate change is compelling. The planet's average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere.
