At the same time, in part of the Catalonia region, including the city of Barcelona, ​​there are still restrictions on the use of water, and this despite the fact that Europe should now be at the height of winter and the height of the rainy season.

A similar situation was also recorded in Switzerland, where the temperatures reached 20 degrees as the warm weather affects the ski resorts in the Alps, when this year a lack of snow can be seen.

The warm start in January comes only a few days after a number of European countries, including Ireland, Great Britain, France and Spain, declared 2022 as the hottest year in their history.

In Europe, it has been noted in recent years that heat waves have become more frequent, stronger and of longer duration than in the past.

The reason - climate change caused by humanity.

In fact, the global average has already warmed by 1.1 degrees Celsius above the global average temperature before the industrial age.
