European Climate at the +2C global warming threshold

Stefan Sobolowski is co-author in a new study that shows that Europe may warm more than the global average.

A global warming of 2 °C relative to pre-industrial climate has been considered as a threshold which society should endeavor to remain below, in order to limit the dangerous effects of anthropogenic climate change.

 

However, a new study shows that, even at this threshold, substantial and robust changes may be expected across Europe.

Most of Europe will warm more than the global average with increases over +3 degrees over Northern Europe in winter and Central-Southern Europe in summer.

Similar increases are also shown for extremes of temperature. Precipitation patterns at +2C global warming show the now familiar wet-north and dry-south patterns and increasing heavy precipitation across much of Europe in both winter and summer.
