People are dying across Greece, Italy and Romania as temperatures recently soared to 46 degrees C. Dozens of fires are raging around Athens as the city suffers from several power outages resulting from the scramble to cool down with air conditioning. Some 23 people have died in Romania as the extreme temperatures impact heavily on the elderly.
Meanwhile in the UK people are seriously fed up with the non-stop rain, particularly some 3500 people who have had to be rescued by the military and emergency services from their flooded homes and work places. It is now believed to be the biggest UK rescue effort in history during peace time.
Just 3 hours flying time between these two parts of Europe but, worlds apart as they suffer the extremes of weather brought on by climate change. Hey, but that’s OK because Gore’s bands of merry men will be here next weekend to save our souls.
