Die Kosten des Klimawandels für den Steuerzahler, allein in Niederösterreich:
Seit dem Jahr 2002 wurden in Niederösterreich 950 Millionen Euro in den Hochwasserschutz investiert.
Das Bundesland hat 1.6m Einwohner, macht gut €1500 pro Steuerzahler allein für zusätzlichen Hochwasserschutz. Andere Auswirkungen wie Unwetter oder Dürren nicht berücksichtigt.
After Greece has activated the #EUCivPro Monday evening first help already arrived. With Spain and Cyprus first to respond.
Following a request from #Greece, Cyprus and Spain are sending #firefighters, paramedics, trucks and firefighting planes via the #EUCivPro Mechanism to help the Greek authorities put out its #forestfires. #EUSolidarity in action 🇬🇷🇪🇺 pic.twitter.com/1aGWuUJaHG

After the wildfires in Sweden, which are still going on, now Greece. 🙁
In this weather, a cigarette butt is enough to start a fire. A tiny spark would do.
I’ve seen the weather forecast for Germany – and right now it might happen here easily too.
The Copernicus Emergency Management Service monitored a Forest Fire earlier this month in Saxony-anhalt, Germany http://emergency.copernicus.eu/mapping/ems/copernicus-emergency-management-service-monitors-forest-fire-saxony-anhalt-germany
Thankfully the situation was quickly under control https://www.zdf.de/nachrichten/heute-sendungen/videos/waldbrand-sachsen-anhalt-102.html
But you are absolutely right, at the current conditions it doesn’t take much at all. These extreme weather events do get a lot more frequent recently.
The fires in Sweden show that climate change is real.
What’s not changing is European solidarity.
Italy, France, Germany, Lithuania, Denmark, Portugal, Poland and Austria all offered their help via #EUCivPro → https://t.co/kRlxzElxlr #EUProtects pic.twitter.com/Hp89Tf84i4

Meanwhile the situtaion in Athens, Greece has gotten a lot worse and the Greek government has now officially asked the EU for help.
#Greece 🇬🇷 & #Latvia 🇱🇻 have both activated the #EUCivPro requesting assistance to combat the #forestfires that have endangered homes and properties. I urgently call on all participating states to show their #solidarity and offer assistance.

I am afraid, at this rate it will be a while before these courageous firefighters will get some well deserved rest. ☹

And noticed that the entire world was above 400ppm except a small green patch in the middle of Africa.
Which just happens to be the same position that Marvel choose as the location for the fictional Sub-Saharan African nation of Wakanda in the MCU.
On a more serious note, the reason for this is most likely the tropical forest absorbing the CO2. The truly worrying part is the fact that we are now way past the 400ppm threshold, maybe permanently, set by scientists as the point of no return.
A workmate of mine, who actually did climate modelling as part of his PhD, made me aware to also keep an eye on Methane, which is a much more potent green house gas with devastating impact on marine life. It is mainly produced by life stock. The upside about this is that if we stop emitting it will relatively quickly leave the atmosphere.
By the way, atmospheric measurements are just a small part of the Copernicus program.
