NCC publishes new top four furnace cities? Fake news!

Recently a story about the new list of China’s hottest cities released by the National Climate Centre goes viral online. According to the news, Chongqing, Fuzhou, Hangzhou and Nanchang has been listed as top four furnace cities in China.

Though being on the list is not the delightful news, a majority of Jinan people still think Jinan should be one of the hottest cities as they have suffered from the dramatic temperature hikes over the past few days.

However, NCC declared on July 11 it is fake news, in spite of broken records on the hottest weather in the past three years. Hot weather will be a normal thing under the context of global warming. So it is not which city is the hottest one that matters, but what we do together to address the global warming.

In the meantime, NCC said a comprehensive indicator system of urban climate and livability will be built taking various factors into consideration such as climatic risk index. Once built, the system can provide the public with a scientific weather vane. Concerned results are expected to be launched before the end of the year.

In addition to the above four cities, Changsha, Wuhan, Xi’an, Nanjing, Hefei and Nanning are added to form the top ten hottest cities online.

What shocked Jinan people is that Jinan is removed from the list of “furnace cities”. Actually the high temperature in Jinan this year has been reported record-breaking. So why is Jinan out of the list? Some people think that the relocation of the metrological station is one of the reasons. The weather data measured is lower 1 or two degrees since the station was moved to Mount Gui from Mount Wuying.
