The climate change is real and it is illustrated by the heat wave conditions spreading like a plague in India and Pakistan. The EU needs to play a crucial role in this important issue.
The faster rate of temperature increase here is due to the fact that continents warm more quickly than oceans, Gutzler explained: "The world is mostly ocean, and we are in the middle of a continent, so when people talk about global warming of one, two or three degrees, for our region, we're thinking about double those numbers".
Ironically, when rain does fall, it is expected to be much heavier, increasing the risk of heavy flooding within an overall drying climate.

Chapter 3, Impacts of 1.5˚C Global Warming on Natural and Human Systems, offers a somber note on the future of glaciers, reflecting the slowness with which glaciers respond to climate drivers. At 2C, in Namibia, this doubles to around 40 more days. Scientists at the time considered it to be the threshold for the most severe effects of climate change.
The progressively serious climate impacts at 1.5 and 2.0℃ in these countries demands concerted action, both locally and internationally.
