L’ondata di caldo ha messo in rosso diversi Paesi europei, specialmente quelli dell’Europa meridionale, provocando un aumento permanente delle temperature sopra i 40ºC e originando importanti incendi in Grecia, Turchia e alcune regioni italiane.

Nel nostro Paese è salito a 3 il livello di allerta e la città di Floridia in Sicilia ha registrato un record storico di 48,8ºC ancora da confermare dall’Aeronautica militare. Il caldo si espande nel Centronord dell’Italia e si stima che sarà venerdì 13 agosto la giornata più ardua, secondo il Ministero della Salute.

Recentemente, l’Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) dell’ONU ha annunciato che l’essere umano ha già causato alterazioni senza precedenti nel sistema climatico. Secondo gli esperti climatici, questi fenomeni saranno sempre più frequenti e intensi dovuto al cambiamento climatico. “Fra trenta anni, un’estate come queste di oggi sarà considerata un’estate fredda”, ha avvertito Rubén del Campo, portavoce dell’Agenzia Statale di Meteorologia in Spagna (AEMET).
