A study relates to the climate change with Dorian storm that hit America on September 3 last. According to this study, warmer oceans trigger more extreme storms; sea level increases storm surges and causes worse flooding. After analyzing more than 70 years of Atlantic hurricane data, NASA scientist, Tim Hall reported that storms are more likely to stop on land, extending their time on Earth when they destroy and cause heavy rainfall. After devastating Bahamas for more than 40 hours, Hurricane Dorian finally turned north as a Category 2 storm. The hurricane circled the coasts of Florida and Georgia, before attacking Carolina, which then led to more life-threatening winds, storm surges, and heavy rain. The emergence of Hurricane Dorian made 2019 the fourth year in a row on which Category 5 typhoons formed in the Atlantic -the longest record in history. However, meteorologists and climate experts say, the Dorian storm shows the characteristics of storm that forms in the future when the Earth's climate is getting warmer. In addition to the storm that changed character to be very destructive, global climate change is also marked by CO2 carbon dioxide levels in China which will peak in 2022, 1 year faster than originally predicted in 2023. Conditions that occur in China as the world's largest emitter will affect the efforts the world controls climate change impacts. Then, each country writes down the effects of climate change that starts being felt in their respective places.Every year since the period 1850-1900, the average temperature of the world is approaching or above one degree Celsius. Now, the British Meteorologist says that trend is likely to continue or increase over the next five years. UN scientists publish a special report on the long-term effects if temperatures increase by 1.5 degrees Celsius. They conclude that there needs to be extraordinary efforts to cut carbon in a bid to prevent the world from crossing the line by 2030. Analysis of the British Meteorological Agency says, there is a 10% chance that this will happen in the next five years.If seen from the pattern and map of the location of countries that are safe from climate change, we can conclude that most developed countries dominate the top position on this, especially the countries in Europe and America. Asia is a continent whose countries are categorized as not too ready for the effects of climate change, although Japan is believed to have been very ready for disaster mitigation and emergency conditions.Our deepest concern is that every country's procedures and systems for dealing with disasters and their attitude towards climate change are in sight. One of the aspects that we cannot deny from climate change is actually their responsibility. Because, how ready and vulnerable a country is in dealing with this, any disaster remains a joint responsibility for each country. Therefore, real collective action actually exists and is evident from the countries that are members of the United Nations. The easiest way we can see is that the standpoint of the United Nations –UN that issued what we call 'Sustainable Development Goals' -SDGs.
