In December 2015, 195 members of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change agreed to "limit the temperature increase to 1.5C above preindustrial levels" in the Paris Agreement. For several cities in Europe - home to millions - the 1.5C threshold has already been reached. The 1.5C temperature increase is a global threshold and areas that are warming faster are not off-track from this goal; scientists have expected for decades that polar regions would warm more than areas closer to the equator. In Kiruna, a mining town in northern Sweden, average yearly temperatures were 3C higher in the 21st century (up to December 31st, 2017) compared to the 20th century yearly average. In Granada, Cordoba and Malaga, all Andalusian cities, the average yearly temperature in the 21st century was at least 1.5C higher than in the 20th century. In Bucharest, capital of Romania, temperatures increased by 1.4C. The increase … [Read more...] about [Visual Data] Every major city in Europe is getting warmer
Tables and chairs from cafes and bars that surround the scruffy but buzzing concrete market area, spill onto the pavements. Almost all of them are occupied by tourists, including groups of lairy 'nurses' and 'convicts', who look determined to drink the city dry as they shout their way from one drinking hole to the next. Krakow, the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland, plays host to an astonishing 10 million visitors a year - and most of them head for the city's Main Square or the rejuvenated Jewish quarter, Kazimierz. But these busy old streets were not always a place of such merriment. Krakow's Jewish community thrived here for more than 500 years and, by the beginning of the Second World War, had swelled to some 68,000 people, about a quarter of the city's population. Amid diabolical scenes of brutality and deprivation, that number nose-dived almost immediately after the Nazis swept into town, in September, 1939. Some 52,000 Jews were forcibly deported, suffering … [Read more...] about Krakow: Could this be the coolest city in Europe right now?
