On the one hand, torrential rains are falling in some countries. Rivers are raging and flowing at danger levels. The reservoirs became full. Streams are winding. This is the situation in India, Pakistan, Australia, and America. But Europe is burning with the scorching sun. People are shaking because of the rain. If 15,000 people have died due to the sun, then it will be known how terrible the situation is. In Western Europe, however, the sun is burning like nothing seen or heard. Especially Portugal and Spain are boiling due to hot winds. Civile has become the hottest spot in Spain. The temperature, which was recorded at 41 degrees, increased further and reached 46 degrees. In Portugal, however, the temperature touched a record high of 47 degrees.
The maximum temperature recorded in the country so far is 45.2 degrees. That too was registered on 24 July 1995. After all these years now that record has been broken. Extreme heat is pushing Europe to the brink of drought. Big ponds have also dried up. People in European countries are suffocating because they cannot stand the sun. People are struggling under the showers. In the evening, they reach the river banks. Even the animals in the zoo are suffering from the heat of the sun. Animals are being cooled by splashing water at the Madrid Zoo in Spain. The people of Europe are waiting for this hot weather to cool down.
15 thousand people lost their lives this year due to heat waves in Europe. The World Health Organization said this. Dr. Hans Henry Kluge, Regional Director for Europe stated that about 4,000 people have died in Spain and Portugal, over 1,000 in the UK, 4,000 in Britain, and 5,000 in Germany. He said that the death toll is likely to increase in many countries.
France’s National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies stated that the number of deaths was 11,000 compared to the period between June 1 and August 22, 2022, in 2019 before the Corona epidemic. INSEE figures stated that the number of deaths due to the heatwave started in mid-June. Heatwaves usually occur in July. Temperatures in Europe are increasing significantly over the period 1961-2021. Temperatures are increasing at an average rate of 0.5 degrees per decade. According to a report released by the World Meteorological Organization this week, Europe is the fastest-warming region. According to the World Health Organization, 1.48 lakh people have died due to extreme temperatures in this region over the last 50 years.
On the other hand, while hundreds of deaths have been recorded due to climate change events, WHO has said that the health of more than half a million people has been directly affected. It revealed that floods and storms have affected 84 percent of people. The WHO has warned that we need to be vigilant about the future in light of climate change. The figures came as delegates from around the world gathered in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, for the United Nations Climate Change Conference to implement previous agreements to immediately reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
