You call the warning a global warming caused by human recklessness against nature.

According to Al Rai daily, the police and ambulance raced when reports came in of the man facing death threat, trapped by the unbearably biting sun.
However, the man eventually died before the rescue could team could arrive. Forensic reports attributed the cause of death to have resulted from the overexposure to the sun.
A Dubai based newspaper Al Qabas, reported Saturday, that Kuwait recorded the highest temperatures in the world; reaching 52.2 degrees Celsius in the shadows and 63 degrees Celsius under direct sunligh.
This was feared to have resulted to some unverified death casualties. The sun has melted some vehicles and facilities that were exposed to it.

Weather forecast revealed that the world should expect heatwave in the gulf area to continue well into the summer season, which would officially kick off on June 21.

Meteorologists in Kuwait have predicted a volatile summer this year, noting that temperatures could reach 68 degrees under the sun next month.

This is indeed a signal to the trees felling Africa that there’s a danger associated with deforestation when the scorching, sending souls to hell sun, would frustrate by suffocating survival of the exposed by self-damnation living.
Some months previously in Sokoto state Nigeria, a calculator that was kept on the dashboard of a vehicle moving for some kilometers, exposed to sunlight without AC, suddenly got melted.
Similarly, in Adamawa state, Nigeria, some months previously, the Periscope with other media organisations would have to mount sensitisation campaign against dangers associated with citizens exposing themselves to, by working under naked sun, deploying the services of medical experts; Dr Suleiman Yarima Yusuf a consultant physician with the Federal Medical Centre Yola, Adamawa State, has contributed immensely to the sensitisation campaign.
Contributing, the environmentalists insisted consistently on the need for aggressive campaign on afforestation.
“People fell trees for firewood, clearing of lands for farming and building houses without considering replanting for future use. What you get is not simply drought resulting from desertification, you are also exposed to offensive heat emitted from the naked sun. Therefore, there is the need for an aggressive media campaign,” Sharafaddeen the environmentalist would tell the Periscope environmental reporter.
