Research on the rate of temperature rise should make the inhabitants of Europe worry – scientists have found that in this region the temperature is rising faster than in other parts of the planet.
Observations recorded that, on average, over the period from 1991 to 2021, the temperature on Earth rose by 0.2 degrees per year. This indicator for the European zone is 0.5 degrees. More than doubling should force the region’s authorities to reconsider their attitude to climate problems. Over the past two decades, eurozone residents have increasingly experienced deadly “heatwaves” during the summer months.
Rapid warming is affecting everyone, but more than 500,000 people have already felt the effects of the heat most acutely. The heat brought hundreds of people to the grave, and the economic damage is estimated by experts at the level of 50 billion dollars. In some areas, against the backdrop of drought, there are difficulties with the availability of drinking water. Living conditions for people are becoming not only uncomfortable but also dangerous.

The reasons for the increase in the rate of warming, according to scientists, lie in the accelerated melting of glaciers in Greenland and the Alps. Authorities across Europe will need to intensify their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and keep a closer eye on everything that affects the environment in order to mitigate the growing problems.
