KUWAIT CITY, April 2: Meteorologist Issa Ramadan said the country will witness a significant rise in temperature and relative humidity in the second half of August, reports Annahar daily.
Ramadan told the daily there is no solution to dust except to work on soil cohesion and fight desertification which is caused by lack of rain. He stressed that the continuation of drought will lead to desertification and may lead to migration from some rural areas.
He pointed out the disintegration of the soil will cause dust, especially with wind power with speed exceed of 36 km/h. It will lead to dust and make our summer dusty due to lack of winter rain and summer temperatures.

He pointed out, over the next 50 years Kuwait can expect high temperatures because of the lack of rain as a result of climatic changes, stressing that if the world does not reduce the amount of emissions to combat global warming climatic changes will lead to rising sea levels and oceans and change in the paths of air depressions and air masses. In another context, Ramadan stressed the need to adhere to building standards to meet the threat of earthquakes, noting that the oil reservoirs may be the source of some earthquakes.
