Another predictable farce. Every time something uncommon happens, blame AGW. You guys have cried wolf so many times, nobody believe s you.“There has been no significant rainfall for almost two months in Western, Central and Southern Europe. And the dry period is expected to continue in what experts say could be the worst drought in 500 years
Climate change is exacerbating conditions as hotter temperatures speed up evaporation, thirsty plants take in more moisture and reduced snowfall in the winter limits supplies of fresh water available for irrigation in the summer. Europe isn't alone in the crisis, with drought conditions also reported in East Africa, the western United States and northern Mexico.”
An unprecedented drought is afflicting nearly half of the European continent, damaging farm economies, forcing water restrictions and causing wildfires and threatening aquatic species.www.npr.org
Nah, there’s no global warming.
The Danube river is low, and we apparently have the worse drought since 1840. Maybe this is an approximate 200 years natural cycle.
The Thames, lowest since what? 1935?
These two rives are supplying water to lots of agriculture and people. The doughts are no worse than historical droughts, except now the rivers run out of water because more people use it.
