North Africa, Southern Europe, Asia, the Middle East and many other regions of the planet have today found themselves in the epicenter of abnormal heat.
In Spain, France, Italy and Greece, the thermometer is setting records, rising to plus forty-eight and forcing tourists to leave resorts early, and many companies are transferring employees to remote work.
In general, as forecasters report, this July has become the hottest not only since the beginning of observations, but also for the last few millennia.
Such weather has already caused large-scale fires, deaths of people, animals and crops, as well as power failures.
Specialists attribute this July heat wave to one of the outbreaks of ongoing climate change towards warming.
