‘Worse Than War’: Record-Breaking Balkans Flooding

‘Worse Than War’: Record-Breaking Balkans Flooding follows a string of severe rainfall events, reports Joanna Foster at Climate Progress, destroying 100,000 homes, displacing 500,000 people, and causing 1000s of landslides. The massive destruction of livestock and pets has turned into a public health threat.

As the atmosphere warms, it holds more moisture, resulting in heavier rainfalls; unusually heavy rainfall has occurred recently in Afghanistan, the UK, Florida, the Solomon Islands and New Zealand. Expect even more as the weather continues to get more extreme under global warming, say scientists.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
