The year 2010 will go as the hottest year in history. NASA statistics indicate that during 2010 the overall global temperature during the climate year was 1.17 degrees Fahrenheit above the 1951-1980 base periods. It was the warmest since records began back in 1880. In addition, the decade between 2001 and 2010 is the hottest global decade on record, according to Peter H. Gleick, climate scientist for the Pacific Institute. Below is a graph showing the global temperature changes over the last 130 years. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported in January 2011 that its findings show in 2010, the average global temperature was 0.53 Celsius higher than the 1965-1999 period and 0.1 Celsius above the normal temperature in 2005, the previous warmest year in recorded history. The Chief of the WMO projected that the upcoming decade would be even hotter stating “With global warming, some of these events will become more frequent or more intense”.
With expectation of even a warm upcoming decade, it may become imperative for people and businesses to take precautions to keep themselves safe as years become hotter. At present there are a number of outdoor cooling products that can provide “relief from the heat”. These include a wide variety of “misting” machines ranging from misting fans to misting line systems and misting tents. There are also a wide range of portable misting products available that people can take with them when outside during the summer months. Some of these misting spray bottles are hand-held and simply spray them in the area for an immediate cooling effect.
Through the combination of portable misting systems, misting fans and evaporative cooling fans most people can protect themselves against the dangers of excessive heat. Please contact an expert on the subject of outdoor cooling for more information.
