Climate Woes Sol-Up Solar, Nevada
Western Europe’s fourth region-wide, fierce heat wave of the summer is well underway, Andrew writes.

  • It’s pushing temperatures into the triple digits Fahrenheit in Portugal, Spain, France, and close to that level in the United Kingdom.

Threat level: French firefighters are battling a nearly 20,000-acre blaze in the Gironde region that has forced thousands from their homes, while other fires burn elsewhere in the heat-affected regions.

What’s next: Much of Europe is in the middle of an intense drought, which the heat will only intensify.

Context: Heat waves are likely to occur, more intense, and longer lasting due to human-caused climate change.
