Greece like all Southern European countries is starting to feel the heat. Whilst summer temperatures have always been high, Mediterranean countries are getting hotter, with an increased incidence of heat waves. These prolonged periods of high temperatures are dangerous to human health. Recent heat waves across southern Europe have been blamed for thousands of deaths. As well as having to contend with heat waves, many of the same countries are becoming drier, making agriculture more difficult. It is predicted that Sahara like conditions, over the coming years will spread to Southern Europe making it an increasingly difficult place to live.
