Welcome to find out information about the earth's current climate, temperature rises we can expect in the future and how we will be able to survive in a more extreme climate.
In the future, we humans risk living in extreme temperature conditions no matter where we live on earth. The average temperature on earth is gradually rising and continues to rise.
The worst hurricane year in recorded history
This year was the worst hurricane year in recorded history amounting to 30 tropical storms (and the season is still going at this point). The hurricanes are increasing in numbers but also in strength. In the future even Europe has to get use to facing tropical hurricanes and here in Scandinavia storms of this caliber will be a reality when the planets temperature rises.
The hurricanes are getting more powerful, wetter (they can hold more moist air) and they also move slower it rains more frequently in the same area.
But the hurricanes are by no means staying in one designated area, instead they are more on the move then ever, already covering a much larger geographical area and right now the storm Theta is moving to Europe about to reach hurricanestrength (firstly it will hit Portugal and then other Europan countries like Great Britain, Ireland, Spain and France could be on this storms list).

The forest fires of Sweden
In the future - the next summers in Sweden the climate will be dry and hot, some precipitation is present (to some extent it will increase but the weather conditions still result in drought and a high risk of forest fires every summer in Sweden in the future).
