Floods in Europe climate change are two issues that are closely related to each other. All that we are facing today in the month of July are the results of the terrible change that is taking place on the planet.
What describe flood ?
As we know the storms are an atmospheric phenomenon associated with a rapid movement of winds, which usually carry with it either rain, snow, or sand. It varies in size and duration that the violent ones are less happening but if it does happen, it often affects the entire continent.
For flood is the accumulation or gathering of a large amount of liquid that submerges the land, it can also apply to the flow of the tides. Flooding often comes from massive rainfall and may result from a volume of growth in a stream, such as a river or a lake.
The movement of the wind at a higher speed when a storm happens brings lots of rain Which causes flooding. Thus, tempest cause flooding…
In the past few days, the European continent has experienced a storm called “Burnet” that caused violent floods in the height of summer in some parts. Many are still lost in the floods that swept through Western Europe. It touched Germany and Belgium in particular and in other European lands. Streets and houses submerged wrecked and overturned cars, and trees uprooted from the ground were washed away by torrents.
The words cannot describe the tragic situation left by the pandemic. Numbers have reached record numbers that the country has not seen for decades. German emergency teams were still searching for hundreds of missing persons on Friday after the worst floods that killed a lot so far and are likely to rise with hundreds more still lost in the worst-hit states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. About 1,000 soldiers went out to assist in rescue and rubble removal operations in the affected towns and villages.
The presence of the river, of course, leads to a worsening of the situation and a catastrophe, this is what happened in Germany. Compared to the floods that occur in other western countries, the damage is not great compared to countries where rivers inside cities and the number of their population is large
Summer in Germany usually sees rain as well, but recording downpours reached record levels and caused floods and losses of this magnitude, raising the question of whether the current situation is “normal”.
In Belgium, it led to the death of at least 31 citizens and the loss of dozens. The water is gradually receding from the flooded areas starting last Friday. The hydrologists warned the German authorities of these floods four days before the start of hail.
The German Meteorological Service confirmed that everyone acted according to the established instructions. They said: “The municipalities were warned, but unfortunately they did not communicate this information to the people. Despite the announcement of the most serious state of preparedness in some areas in advance, the media did not publish this information among the residents”.
Is the Consequences of climate change appears today in Europe and germany ?
The environmental and climate scientists and experts explain that climate change is raising the frequency and intensity of floods caused by heavy rainfall, so the main cause of this disaster is climate change. Climate change has become an existential threat to humanity. Experts say the global temperature has raised by an average of 1.2 degrees Celsius since the beginning of the industrial era.
Climate change is any significant and long-term change in the average weather that occurs in a particular area. This change made by human activity raising the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions which is trapping high temperature.
They are a big quantity of gases that are trapped at a specific height from the sky are distinguished by their ability to absorb the infrared radiation emitted by the earth and keep it and raise the air temperature. Thus, it reduces the heat loss from the Earth to space, which makes it contribute to heating the Earth’s atmosphere, and thus to the phenomenon of global warming.
Floods in Europe Climate change is the real hazard
The effects of climate change include changes in ambient temperature and precipitation patterns ( as scientists claims ) . Temperature is involved in increasing evaporation. What “Burnt” created was due to changes in downpour and flooding of rivers already creating causing drainage retention.

Climate change is causing an increase in extreme weather events such as heatwaves, droughts, floods, and hurricanes. Like that, the number of hurricanes and the strength and continuity of tropical tempests has put forward than before. Therefore, the world must work to reduce this crisis. So many individual practices can be taken to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and thus reducing global warming like waste recycling, use energy-efficient products, encourage others to conserve energy, reducing the use of vehicles…etc.
Do you think the climate situation will worsen in the future because of the factors affecting it? In my opinion yes, it is very possible. Since the world did not take into account the environmental fluctuations that occurred recently and did not offer any solutions for reducing it with the current floods, the influenced European countries must prepare a security protocol to combat such natural impact since we expect them to occur in the future to avoid the losses that are facing these days and we must not ignore the causes of its occurrence.

Thank you so much for your time please share this article and say yes to the ( floods in Europe climate change is the real hazard) in social media. let’s see and blame ourselves first we are all responsible for this change, we are facing a major and direct risk across the time. decreasing co2 emissions
A week ago we have seen one of the impacts of climate change :
- Deadly disasters in central euorope
- Catastrophic fires indiffrentes forests ; this is very clear in recent news for each region in this world and severale sites show that during day and night ( including images and researchers declarations )
- Damages induced Severe thunderstorms in America ( stuck for hours ) .
After all the problems I cited above people are asking a question is; If the Officials do not know the magnitude of the risks we faced and we still facing in this century don’t we still have away? We need politicians to focus on some strategies of decreasing the emissions and warn against the frequent risks that threaten our lives, agriculture, and let s not forget the economic role of everything.
Hi My name is Abd Allah i am web content creator and renewable energy phd engineer.
I started blogging since 2 years what make me create this blog is the importance of sharing information with readers who love this field, I think i m not the first one who is familiar with this field but every person has his touch.i love nature and i think renewable energy will take over the responsibility of preserving this beautiful world.
