Are heat waves linked to climate change?
Although many people enjoy them, heat waves are classified by the Met Office as extreme weather events.
They are more and more frequent: by 2050, experts say they should occur every two years.
This increase has been linked to human-induced climate change by multiple studies.
For example, Met Office research shows that the summer heatwave of 2018 was made 30 times more likely by the effect of humans on the climate.
The temperature on the hottest day of the year, which all four of the UK’s countries experienced over the weekend, also rose.
Between 2008-17, it became, on average, 0.8 ° C higher than it was between 1961 and 1990, according to a UK report on the state of the climate.
