Why Europe is now a heatwave hotspot

The atmosphere runs on fluid mechanics! As explained on https://www.brilliant.org/simonclark In July 2022 the UK shattered its temperature record, observing a temperature of over 40°C for the first time. This was part of a devastating heatwave that spanned the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Portugal and saw evacuations, wildfires, and thousands of premature deaths. This forms part of a grim trend: Europe has become a heatwave hotspot, seeing an increase in heatwaves three to four times greater than elsewhere in the midlatitudes. This video examines why, and discusses the future of heatwaves in Europe. My book, Firmament: https://geni.us/firmament REFERENCES

European heatwaves recently broke temperature records due to climate change, climate change made the heatwaves in the UK and France and Germany and Spain and Portugal hotter, the jet stream brought heatwave conditions in 2022 to Europe which was caused by the climate crisis. This video is about the science of how the jet stream is changing temperatures across Europe and how climate change is making heatwaves hotter. If you like videos from SciShow, Crash Course, Smarter Every Day, or Veritasium you will enjoy this science video about the climate crisis.
