A crippling drought exacerbated by a record heat wave has spread out across half of China and reached the normally frigid Tibetan Plateau, according to official data released ahead of more searing temperatures on Thursday.
The world’s second-largest economy has been hit by heatwaves, flash floods and droughts —
phenomena that scientists say are becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change.
Experts have said the intensity, scope and duration of the heatwave could make it one of the worst recorded in global history.
