Heatwave Tortures Europe

Heatwave Scorches Europe,
NASA Earth Observatory, June 28, 2019.


Heat Wave
“Many parts of the continent saw the hottest temperatures so far for 2019, with some cities recording their hottest day on record.”

Very Dangerous
Hotter than Death Heatwave of 2003?
“...Network of European Meteorological Services specified “very dangerous” temperatures—the highest alert level—in parts of Spain, France, Switzerland, and Croatia. The meteorological department in France listed numerous cities where records for the hottest June day were broken, many of which were set during the deadly heatwave in 2003. France’s national record for the hottest temperature (of any time of the year), set in 2003, was broken in the town of Carpentras, which hit 45.9°C (114.6°F) on June 28 at 4:20 p.m. local time.”

Beginnings & End
"The 2019 heatwave got its start in late June, when warm air masses from the Sahara first hit Spain and then spread to Central Europe. News reports also cite a pair of high-pressure systems responsible for drawing in the warm air and suppressing cloud cover. The exceptional heat was expected to last through the month."


Euro Metro Alarm
Weather Warning System
"...will provide the most relevant information needed to prepare for extreme weather, expected to occur somewhere over Europe."

Bottom Line

Stop! Think! Respond!
Short & Long Term Threats Rising
The Northern Hemisphere is rapidly and radically heating up. The whole Northern Hemisphere Heatwave of last August should have given everyone who's watching, something to take a pause about, something serious to think about.

What we should be thinking about, is just how we're going to take our foot off the accelerator pedal of the globalized corporate growth machine of death, who's rapidly expanding populations, production, and consumption are driving our people and our planet into configurations no people have ever seen, and our planet has not experienced for millions and millions of years.
