Climate Change is Coming Faster Than Ever

Climate+Change+is+Coming+Faster+Than+Ever

Powerful winds, rains, and storms are expected for Earth to live and grow, but droughts? And boiling heat? That is unexpected. The acuteness of this weather has the world wondering what’ll happen next. Researchers have noticed some recent droughts suddenly developing in Northern countries. We have reason to believe they are Flash droughts. What are they? Flash droughts are a more intense and rapid intensification of a drought. It can result in strange and abnormally hot temperatures, winds, and radiation, followed by particularly low-to-no precipitation. Between these two levels of extreme, the weather can quickly convert the local climate. In the UK there have been plenty of droughts, causing fires, and quickly turning heads for its “record-breaking heat”. Is climate change making these extreme weather events come to the surface? As the season is starting to change, from Summer to Autumn, and Autumn to Winter, will we see snow? Are the newer generations ever going to experience what we had?… Happy reading Conrad!

Mia McKinnon, HS Reporter
Hi, my name is Mia McKinnon and I'm an 11th grader at CSS. I decided to join journalism because I've always loved to read, write, and share the truth with others because I believe that people should know the full picture of everything, good or bad. I will do my best to provide that to the Conrad Howler. My pathway is Physical Therapy, and I enjoy reading about world issues and learning about how to solve them. I look forward to this year in journalism, it will give me and many others the joy and creativity to help people look through a different lens to see another side of the picture the world paints for us.
