China’s northernmost province of Heilongjiang feels the effects of climate change. Meteorologists with the Heilongjiang Meteorological Observatory said the provincial capital, Harbin, known as the “city of ice,” posted the highest average annual temperatures since records began in 1881.
Senior meteorologist at the observatory, Yin Xuemian said, “This record annual average was not incidental. It was closely related to the global warming trend.” The province also faces worsening drought, which has already affected more than 40 percent of its arable land.

Thank you Chinese meteorologists for this imperative message. Our sincere prayers go to the people of Heilongjiang. May Heaven protect and keep them safe as we find ways to effectively sustain all life on our beloved planetary home.
