Large parts of Europe are warming twice as fast as the planet on average. As a consequence of human emissions of greenhouse gases, the climate across the continent has also become drier, particularly in southern Europe, leading to worse heat waves and an increased risk of fires.

  1. Climate change is a lot like rolling a die. Before we started it was a six sided die. Maybe it could hit a 1 and maybe it would hit a six but mostly it was between 2 and 5. Average. We added sides. Now we roll with a with a polyhedron. Is it a '2' or is it a '12'? We hope not to hit a '20'. More power than we calculated to be possible. Most likely, an increase in damaging events and loss of life. Yet, you are not the problem. One hundred companies, seventy percent of emissions. At least. Consider what they produce. Your microwave, your smartphone and your medicine. From this point of view then, what hope for humanity, if this is the case? We can but hope to survive.

  2. Twice as fast? But if you multiply that by north America which is warming twice as fast which is warming twice as fast as south America which is warming twice as fast as Australia which is warming twice as fast Asia which is warming twice as fast as the Poles which are warming twice as fast as Greenland which is warming twice as fast as Siberia which are all headlines I have seen, I smell an over cooked story.
