The European Environment Agency warned that the climate change situation in Europe is already evident and is set to get worse. The negative impacts are not only limited to forests, agriculture and fisheries, they also impact the health of humans and our ability to survive.
The report mentioned that the emissions gap, the difference between current level of carbon emission and that needed to avert climate change, is widening. In fact, a World Bank report predicted that with present trends we are on our way to surpass not a 2C increase, but 4C.
All this is a big monetary problem for a budget tight Europe, whose expenses due to extreme weather patterns has gone up, and are only expected to increase. All scientists urge governments and individuals for more efficiency and more action to prevent such catastrophes.
