 UN warns: heatwaves will happen more often

According to the UN, heat waves similar to the one that “covered” Europe are becoming more frequent, and this trend will continue until at least 2060.

The Times of Israel reports.

The UN World Meteorological Organization noted that the current wave heat should be a “wake-up call” for countries that emit more and more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

“They are becoming more frequent, and this negative trend will continue” hellip; until at least the 2060s, regardless of our progress in climate change mitigation efforts. In the future, such heatwaves will become the norm, and we will see even more severe extreme events,” said WMO chief Petteri Taalas.
