Could climate change result in fatal heat waves in Sweden?

We take a look at how Swedish weather could be heading for some fundamental changes.

There is a general consensus among scientists that ongoing climate change will result in increased temperatures. Just as it has been witnessed in central and southern Europe, this could lead to severe heat waves which could cause deaths in Sweden. That is the conclusion of a study by Umeå University. Azariah Kiros takes up the story:

A journalist at a provincial Swedish newspaper has recently published a book about her spending a year living with refugees at one of the country’s refugee centres in southern Sweden. A book describing both joy and despair.
