Record-breaking heat waves will be the norm in Europe by 2035, study says

A recent analysis conducted by the Met Office Hadley Centre in the UK has stated that the record-breaking heat waves which swept Europe over the past few months will become a norm by the year 2035.

Even if every country reach their target decrease of greenhouse gas emissions, the average summer will still be one with record heatwaves. The study, commissioned by the UK’s Climate Crisis Advisory Group (CCAG) analysed summer temperatures from historical records dating back to 1850 and found that all heat waves are caused by human-induced activity, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels.

“This data serves as an urgent reminder of the need for countries to go well beyond their nationally determined contributions so far pledged under the Paris Agreement, which aims to limit global warming to under 1.5°C if possible,” the CCAG stated in their release.

The UK saw an all-time temperature record broken in July after exceeding 40 degrees Celsius for the first time ever, with Malta seeing its longest-ever marine heatwave stretching from mid-May till August and temperatures reaching record numbers during the summer.
