Europe was reared by winter heat, the mercury rose to 42 degrees in the last few weeks.
Along with Corona, climate change remains a major crisis in Europe. On a rough day in February, temperatures in more than 100 places in Europe were 12 degrees above normal. Many of these places set new records of winter and summer. On February 14, the temperature in the city of Gatingen, Germany was around minus 24 degrees. On February 21, the temperature in the same city reached 18 degrees.
That is, the mercury climbed to 42 degrees in just 7 days. The city of Hamburg also saw a 21 degree rise in temperature. Similarly, the temperature in Bremer, UK on 11 February was recorded as minus 23 degrees Celsius and on 24 February in Santan Downham, the temperature was 18.4 degrees.
Dr Mark McCarthy, head of the National Climate Information Center at the UK Meteorological Department, says that our winters are changing. The mercury falling below minus 20 degrees in February is a record, but the 18 degree temperature in winter scares us. However, heat has been increasing for the last four to five years.
Winter is getting shorter and summer is getting longer. Hours of sunshine are being recorded in the UK from March to May. Last year, there was 695.5 hours of sunshine during this period, which is the highest ever. Earlier in 1948, Britain had seen 594.3 hours of sunshine. After 1929, Britain has seen more than 500 hours of spring so far 9 times. Seven of the 10 warmest spring has been since 2000.
According to the UK Meteorological Department, there is a danger of rising temperatures and excessive rain in the coming days. In the first week of March, temperatures in southern and east England have gone into double digits. Meteorologists have predicted that London’s temperature may remain 15 degrees on 15 March. This time the heat has knocked in February.
Plants that did not have to be watered 15 years ago, are now necessary
Adrian Claughton, who grows fruits, flowers and vegetables, says on the changing season, Britain now receives torrential and monsoon-like rains. After the rains start, it seems like it will never stop. There are no longer dry winters with light rain. Summer is dry. Therefore, strawberries and raspberries have to be watered, whereas 15 years ago, in summer, their plants did not need to be watered. Now Strawberry dies in summer. Frogs are also disappearing. Till a few years ago there were frogs in every river and their turr-turr voice echoed all the time.
