Spain's drought: a glimpse of our future?
#1
Barcelona is a dry city. It is dry in a way that two days of showers can do nothing to alleviate. The Catalan capital's weather can change from one day to the next, but its climate, like that of the whole Mediterranean region, is inexorably warming up and drying out. And in the process this most modern of cities is living through a crisis that offers a disturbing glimpse of metropolitan futures everywhere.

Specialists promised that this summer is going to be the warmest one for the last 150 years. Be careful people.

That's awful. Be careful everybody. If you feel you are attacked by sun, immedeatly call the ambulance, since the consequences could be irreversible.

The "specialists" said also that Mediterranean inhabitants must prepare to move their asses away to northern countries. The Viking and Saxon girls are really happy, I suppose... :haha

Well, if the warming continues, teh Viking will have to be happy not only about Mediteranians but about the entire southern Europe.

Spain lost more than 485,622 hectares of forest to wildfires in 1994, and 149,734 hectares burned in each of Greece and Italy in 1998.

Forest fires usually start in the month of July in Southern countries. It's enough to throw a cigarette, and an entire wood could be burned.

I am satisfied about this summer, it is not so hot as it was forecasted. But, it's only the middle of July, so maybe it will change.

Why is the Mediteranian region dry? Is it because of Southern winds blowing from the South?

Yes, Spain is a region which is mosty influenced by the winds blown from Sahara Desert. The temperature in Sahara may reach 70-80 degrees celcius, this is why it's hot in Sourthern Spain.

But Italy is also not far from Sahara Desert, why isn't it suffering of droughts?

If the previous year brought a drought over the Eastern Europe, this year the mother-nature brought this region a lot of rain. The Eastern europe is under waters...

I'd better prefer them to come in September, as a result the summer will seem longer Smile

The current summer was a pretty good one, not taking into considerations the floods that occurred the Eastern Europe. The weather was fine, no essential temperature surplus. Wish all summers were the same...
