Weather Patterns Are Becoming More Extreme Over Time

The National Met Office also attributes climate change as being the root cause for the changes in the disbursement pattern of rainfall in different parts of the country, making some areas more prone to flooding. This has been having serious implications for the country’s infrastructure, agriculture, and overall development, which was especially apparent in the aftermath of Hurricane Lisa last November. Chief Meteorologist, Ronald Gordon, explains that unsustainable human activity has contributed largely to erratic weather patterns.

Ronald Gordon, Chief Meteorologist, National Meteorological Service: “Now in terms of rainfall the total amount of rainfall for the year for example hasn’t changed significantly but what we have seen is in how that rainfall is distributed so we do get severe dry spells and then you get that sudden downpour with flooding and that type of thing so we get more extreme events and that is certainly one of the factors that can be attributed to climate change.”
