3°C Could Double Europe’s Drought Risk

If average global temperatures rise by just 3°C, then Europe’s drought risk could increase to  double the area faced with drying out. Right now, just 13% of the continent can be counted as a drought-prone region. As the thermometer soars, this proportion could rise to 26%.

And 400 million people could feel the heat as the water content in the European soils begins to evaporate. The worst droughts will last three to four times longer than they did in the last decades of the last century.
