Review of previous event:
Topic for last week is 'Global Climate & the Environment'. We went through some uncommon weather conditions and phenomenons, 24 solar terms, and also figured out the differences between weather and climate. In addition to that, we also learned about how climate change affects us and what can we do to prevent it.
Here are some vocabularies and sentences from the event:
hurricane 飓风 n.
drizzle 毛毛雨 v.
dog day 三伏天
gentle breeze 微风
muggy 闷热的 adj.
tornado 龙卷风 n.
mortality 死亡率 n.
glacial 冰川的 adj.
drougt 干旱 n.
1. Climate change will lead to an increase in the frequency of extremely hot weather, resulting in higher mortality from cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. 气候变化将导致极热天气频率的增加，使心血管和呼吸道系统疾病的死亡率增加。
2. Rising sea levels will have a major impact on relatively economically developed costal areas. According to statistics, in the United States, the economic loss of every 50cm of sea level rise is 30 billion to 50 billion US dollars. 海平面上升将对经济相对发达的沿海地区产生重大影响，据统计，在美国，海平面每上升50厘米造成的经济损失为300-500亿美元。
3. The face that Shanghai has experiences only 16 days of 40C-plus temperatures since the city began keeping records in 1873 should give us an idea about the seriousness of the situation. 自1873年上海开始记录以来，上海仅经历了16天40摄氏度以上的高温天，这一事实足以让我们了解情况的严重性。
