Extreme weather, caused by climate change, affects rich and poor nations alike.
And Europe is not immune. Especially when it comes to water. From floods in Germany to droughts in Spain, from tidal surges in Venice to Siberian wildfires, Europeans struggle simultaneously with too much – and not enough – of this crucial resource. Experts are saying the extreme weather fluctuations are here to stay as average global temperatures rise. And that mankind must adapt now to avoid catastrophe.
