France is about to experience its second #heatwave of the year, with temperatures expected to top 40C in Paris, possibly breaking records #canicule actualite.lachainemeteo.com/actualite-mete…
Heatwaves such as these are made between 5-100 times more likely by #climatechange, and are on average 4C hotter than a century ago theguardian.com/science/2019/j…
Climate change also makes heatwaves last longer - the 2018 #heatwave across much of northern Europe was statistically "impossible" without climate change, researchers found: carbonbrief.org/northern-hemis…
One heatwave last year in Japan, which killed more than 1,000 people, was also found to be impossible without the added warming brought by climate change #canicule climatechangenews.com/2019/05/29/dea…
So, for the second time in a month, Paris is about to experience an effect known as the "urban heat island", whereby buildings and roads act like radiators and the city never cools for days at a time
Under 2C of warming - a "safe" level aimed for in the Paris climate deal - we can expect a heatwave like the one in 2018 ever year on average.

Earth is currently on course for as much as 4C of warming
