The South, Southeast and Midwest regions of the country are already experiencing a historic cold front, with temperatures approaching or getting below zero and even snow in cities in Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina. At the same time, countries in the northern hemisphere are experiencing heat waves and floods that leave hundreds dead.
These phenomena are related: both are consequences of climate change, which has been intensified by the burning of fossil fuels and other greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.
In this Friday’s episode (30), Café da Manhã talks with the climatologist and coordinator of the National Center for Monitoring and Alerts on Natural Disasters, José Marengo, about the changes underway — and what needs to be done to adapt to them.
