Question

The most visually striking evidence of global warming is:


  1. Thunderstorms

  2. High-temperature fluctuations in winters

  3. All the above

  4. Melting of glacial ice on nearly every continent


Solution

The correct option is B

High-temperature fluctuations in winters


Global warming is defined as the increase in temperature of the earth due to the increased amount of greenhouse gases like CO2 and water vapour which trap the IR radiations reflected by the Earth's surface. Due to this excess heat trapped there are frequent temperature variations in winters. Melting of ice caps happen over time and does not deliver the immediate effect of global warming while high-temperature fluctuations are more evident and virtually striking effect of global warming.
