Climate in Europe, temperatures increased by 2.3°C since 1850: the study

Europe's average temperature in 2022 was 2.3 degrees higher than in the pre-industrial era (1850-1900). This is what emerges from a study and data collected jointly by the World Meteorological Organisation (Wmo) and the EU Earth observation service, Copernicus.

On the other hand, the average temperature, taking the world as a whole into account, has increased by 1.5° compared to the same pre-industrial period examined. 

According to the Emergency Situation Report (Em-Dat), meteorological, hydrological and climatic hazards in the Old Continent in 2022 directly affected as many as 156,000 people and caused 16,365 deaths, almost exclusively due to heat waves.

Since 1980, weather-related disasters such as heat waves, floods, and extreme weather events have been responsible for the deaths of 195,000 people, the European Environment Agency (EEA) reported.

The total economic losses, most of them due to floods and storms, are estimated at around USD 2 billion for 2022, far from the USD 50 billion estimated for 2021 as a result of the exceptional floods.

In the words of Carlo Buontempo, director of the European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Observatory (C3S): '2022 is unfortunately not a unique case or a climatic oddity. On the contrary, it is part of a trend that will make extreme episodes of heat stress more frequent and more intense throughout the region'.
