Last night, a thunderstorm swept through the eastern part of the city after 2 o’clock. While I have not yet seen all the recorded details, it is clear that this storm can be linked to recent climate change. Branko Grisogono, a professor from Zagreb’s PMF, offers his insights on the matter. According to him, things are becoming increasingly blurred in space and time due to climate change.
Grisogono explains that last night’s thunderstorm was typical of coastal regions, not continental areas. He suggests that the cause is linked to climate change and notes that due to the excess energy in the climate system, intense weather events are happening more often and unexpectedly and are becoming more intense.
The professor previously spoke about how one of the warmest winters awaits us so far and unfortunately, we can expect the development of intense weather events in the future. He concludes by saying that while our area is already several degrees warmer than before, there is no doubt that winter will certainly be warmer as well.
