heat waves, most recently in July have become as a result of climate change, according to a study, one is much more likely.

According to the on Friday by the World Weather Attribution Project (WWA) published analysis of the recent heat wave would have been at all measured locations in Europe and without climate change by 1.5 to 3 degrees lower. “The heat wave in July 2019 was so extremely over continental Western Europe, that reached peak values without climate change would be extremely unlikely,” it said in the study.

In the WWA together several scientific institutes, including the German weather service (DWD) is involved. The project deals with the relationship between climate and weather. The relatively new field of research, calculated how much more likely extreme weather events due to climate change and what is the share of man-made climate change to a specific event.

The heat wave in July, had not only brought a new German heat record of 42.6 degrees, in countries such as Belgium or the Netherlands, the temperatures had risen for the first time since weather records began over 40 degrees.

the authors of The study referred to the probability of the recent heat temperatures without man-made climate change in France and the Netherlands as “extremely rare” event, which would otherwise occur only every 1000 years.

In Germany and the United Kingdom, however, the recent heat wave without climate change would be about every 50 to 100 years is possible. Currently, however, about every 10 years should be expected.

in Addition, the July 2019 does not stand alone, so the climate scientists in the World in the years 2015 to 2018 were the four warmest, the June 2019 was the warmest month since the start of the measurements a new record. In Germany, he was with an average Temperature of 19.8 degrees to 4.4 degrees above the value of the internationally valid reference period.
