Last night, a strong thunderstorm occurred in the eastern part of the city after 2 o’clock. Although I have not yet received all the details about it, I am certain that tonight’s event can be linked to recent climate change. Branko Grisogono, a professor from Zagreb’s PMF, has commented on this phenomenon. According to him, things are becoming increasingly blurred in space and time, and he attributes the loud, somewhat scary, and unusual thunderstorm for the second part of November to climate change.
Grisogono notes that the thunderstorm that rumbled through Zagreb last night and kept many awake did not occur in continental regions but rather on the coast. He explains that due to excess energy in the climate system, intense weather events are becoming more frequent and unexpectedly intense. Grisogono predicts that one of the warmest winters is still to come and warns us that we can expect intense weather events to continue happening in the future.
In conclusion, Grisogono believes that winter will be warmer than usual as our area is already several degrees warmer than before due to climate change. The professor emphasizes that we must take action to mitigate its effects and prepare ourselves for future extreme weather conditions.
