2015 Was One Of Singapore’s Warmest Years In History
Global warming is hitting Singapore hard. Over the last 50 years, temperatures in Singapore have been rising double the rate of the world’s average, said Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS).
MSS revealed in its Annual Climate Assessment Report that Singapore’s average temperature rose by 0.25 °C per decade for about 60 years. Whereas around the world, the average increase was 0.12°C.
MSS said that rapid urbanization like changing the land use was probably the one of biggest culprit behind the temperature spike. Singapore has been experiencing warm weather the past month, with daily maximum temperature hitting between 31 to 35°C each day.
Unfortunately, the warm weather is expected to persist in 2016.
