Location: Thailand

Very hot temperatures in Thailand🥵? -Take care of you and people around. ❤️‍🩹 - Observe what can be done ✅ -Join a แฮชแท็ก#ClimateFresk workshop to understand why if the Paris agreement on climate change is not enforced effectively, Southeast Asia could be hit harder by heat waves than other regions and Thailand could face extremely hot weather for up to 220 days a year in about 20 years. Professor Seree Suparathit, director of the Centre for Climate Change and Disasters at Rangsit University, speaks about the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) held in Paris in December 2015. Seree said he bases his prediction on IPCC. In the worst-case scenario – if the global temperature rises 4.5°C, heat waves could be experienced for 180-220 days in the North, middle and upper Northeast and 220-240 days in the Central, East and lower Northeast. He said all countries must act now to implement the COP21 resolution.
