How do rising temperatures impact the environment?
Records show the fluctuations of the temperature of the oceans and seas and over a period of time statistics have shown an increase in temperature. The increase in temperature has also caused a rise in sea levels and the cause of the arctic ice melting. Over the last two decades, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have been losing mass, glaciers have continued to shrink almost worldwide, and the Arctic sea ice and Northern Hemisphere spring snow cover have continued to decrease. The rate of sea level rise since the mid-19th century has been larger than the rate during the previous two millennia.
Is this a sign of the End Times?
Ahmed bin Muhammad bin Nasr said: I heard Al-Ridha (pbuh) say: Verily before this matter, shall be Bayouh. But I did not understand what the word Bayouh meant, until I went on perform Hajj and I hear a beduin /arabian saying: this day is Bayouh. So I said to him: What is Bayouh? He said: Extremely hot. – Ghaybat AlNo’mani, p.279
