Mankind’s folly > Rising temperatures will make the intense heat waves of the past few years seem mild, experts said yesterday.
“The unprecedented heat wave of 2003, that caused hundreds of deaths across Europe, will seem cool in 2060 and positively freezing in 2100,” warned Christos Zerefos, the President of the Athens Observatory.
Experts say there has been a sharper rise in temperatures in the past 30 years than the rate of increase recorded over the past millennium. Mankind has taken 40 years to destroy the ozone that it took nature 1.5 billion years to create, according to Zerefos.
