Climate change is becoming increasingly apparent. Temperatures around the world have increased over these years and it was noticed that mean temperatures for most cities were above average and some cities experienced their warmest temperatures ever. In Europe, several countries experienced a period of exceptionally hot weather at the end of June in 2006, after which is known as the European heat wave. This change has become of a great concern to many as these changes have an impact on ecosystems, habitats, wildlife, cultures, artifacts and the life of humans. Scientists predict that such changes will speed up in the future and more extreme weathers, public health risks and water shortage will be expected.
