Blame on Climate Change behind blazing hot and sultry weather in Europe

Climate Change and heat wave in Europe

The scientists have now mentioned that global warming is to be blamed for all time heat records being set worldwide. The experts now warn that temperatures would continue to soar.

The researchers mentioned that heat waves in June are now about four degrees hotter than they used to be. Globally, the average temperature for June was the highest on record. Records were broken at locations in France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and Spain.

The new French record, established at Gallargues-le-Montueux last Friday, was more than 1.5C above the previous high mark. The immediate cause of the heatwave was the weather, with hot air drawn in from northern Africa, caused by high pressure over central Europe and a storm stalling over the Atlantic.

According to the Copernicus Climate Change Service, June generally was more than two degrees above the long-term average. Globally the temperature was also the highest for June on record, being about 0.1 degrees higher than in 2016.

The researchers believe that if this scenario continues to the two degrees level envisioned in the Paris Climate Agreement, heat wave experienced last week might just become the norm in June.
