Belgian weather worker David Dehenau, head of RMI’s weather service, sees a bleak outlook for this summer. Rain and instability as far as the eye can see in the coming weeks. It’s – literally – a disastrous summer. “I don’t even dare hope that the weather will be nice. I will be glad if the heavy rain stops and people no longer suffer damage, die or get injured.”

The reason: climate change. “Yes, sure. Our climate is changing. Extremes are on the increase, because we have the same weather more than before for long periods of time. That’s because the jet stream has virtually stopped, and then stops again because the Arctic and northern regions are rapidly warming, making The difference in temperature decreases with the Tropic of Cancer. If you stay in the high pressure area, you get very dry weather. We have experienced this in recent years. This year we will experience depression after depression. Rain also becomes heavier in hot climates. That it will be one or the other every summer from now on? No, but that will happen often.”

“I do not consider it impossible that from now until 2030 we will have 45 degrees. The record now stands at 41.8. It will not stop there. It does not look to us as 50 degrees as in Canada in ten years., but it is possible It would be too much for this to be the case elsewhere in Europe, and even the opposite would surprise me.”
