Early heatwave hits Europe, worrying residents about climate change

Global News published this video item, entitled “Early heatwave hits Europe, worrying residents about climate change” – below is their description.

Paris sweltered in temperatures of up to 35 degrees Celsius on Friday as an exceptionally early heatwave struck France.

Locals and tourists in the city were seen cooling off in cafés, standing by sprinklers and gulping down bottles of water.

Temperatures in many of France’s areas hit 40 C for the first time this year on Thursday and were expected to peak on Saturday, climbing to 41-42 C.

On the U.K.’s hottest day of the year so far, Brits headed for the sea and fretted about climate change on Friday as temperatures soared to 34 degrees Celsius.

A spokesperson for the United Kingdom’s weather service said that Friday was likely to top Wednesday’s 2022 record of 28.2 degrees Celsius, with 34 expected in some parts of the southeast.

Charlie Uksel, originally from Cyprus and now studying in London, said the difference in weather between England and his home country was worrying.

“In Cyprus it’s raining and I’m in London and I’m boiling here, so something must change,” he said.
