Climate: Heatwave Made 'At Least' Five Times More Likely By Warming

"Last week's record breaking heatwave across much of Europe was made "at least five times" more likely to happen by climate change, say scientists.

Their rapid attribution study says that rising temperatures "super-charged" the event, making it more likely to happen than through natural variability alone.

Heatwaves in June are now about 4C hotter than they used to be, the researchers said."
