BBC News: Climate change evident across Europe
The effects of climate change are already evident in Europe and the situation is set to get worse, the European Environment Agency has warned.
In a report, the agency says the past decade in Europe has been the warmest on record.
“Every indicator we have in terms of giving us an early warning of climate change and increasing vulnerability is giving us a very strong signal,” observed EEA executive director Jacqueline McGlade.
“It is across the board, it is not just global temperatures,” she told BBC News.
“It is in human health aspects, in forests, sea levels, agriculture, biodiversity - the signals are coming in from right across the environment.”
