ClimaMeter UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • ClimaMeter, a research project funded by the European Union and the French National Centre for Scientific Research, has interpreted the May heatwave as a largely unique event whose characteristics can mostly be ascribed to human-driven climate change

  • The heatwave in May was 1.5°C warmer than the warmest heatwaves previously observed in the country.

  • Burning fossil fuels contributes significantly to the increasing severity of heatwaves.

  • Immediate action is necessary to reduce CO2 emissions to prevent surpassing critical temperature thresholds.

  • No feasible technological solutions for Indian cities to cope with temperatures approaching 50°C.

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions is critical to mitigating the impact of future heatwaves and climate change.

  • ClimaMeter is an experimental rapid framework for understanding extreme weather events in a changing climate based on looking at similar past weather situations

  • Developed by the ESTIMR team at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (Institut Pierre Simon Laplace) in Paris-Saclay

  • They provide an easily interpretable contextualisation of extreme weather immediately after the actual event, as well as a more technical description and discussion of the event with a slightly longer delay
