Switzerland sets new record for freezing point much higher than Alpine peaks | Weather News

Scientists said that the recent heat waves in different parts of the world in recent weeks are the result of climate change. Yesterday, MeteoSchweiz announced that its weather balloons must rise to a height of 5,184 meters at night to record the freezing point. This is about 70 meters higher than the previous record of 5,117 meters, which was measured on July 20, 1995. It also rises 375 meters above Europe’s highest point, the summit of Mont Blanc in the French Alps.

It is very extraordinary that the freezing point is measured above 5 km in Europe. French meteorologists also measured the freezing point over Bordeaux at more than 5,000 meters on Sunday. This warm air from western France then traveled to the Alps in the east, MeteoSchweiz reports.

As temperatures rise, glaciers are melting faster than ever this month, Swiss expert Matthias Haas wrote on July 17. Ring the alarm. At the time, even compared to the previous record of 2003, the melting of the Grace Glacier was well ahead at that time, Haas said on Twitter. “And there is no improvement in sight.”

Global warming is causing animals that live in lower temperatures to move to higher places in the mountains to survive. But once they reach the tops of the mountains, of course they cannot climb higher.
