Nero Fiddles While Rome Burns
A weather report from Europe.
FLORA AND FAUNA AND THE FOREST WORLDCLIMATE CHANGE SEASONS
Whether it is true or not that Nero fiddled during Rome's great fire, that is certainly what is happening now throughout Europe. The series of wildfires that began in Greece have since spread throughout the Mediterranean , and are now burning furiously in Croatia, Portugal and North Africa. Whilst firefighters are battling valiantly, airlines, always keen to maximise their profits , are slow to limit their flights to these regions . Moreover, most tourists are still keen to leave behind the mist, rain and lower temperatures of Northern Europe, in search of the sun, however intense it may be. Politicians throw the problem of climate change around like a hot potato, too afraid to commit themselves to taking the necessary drastic measures. Meanwhile , those who do take it seriously enough to protest, like the Stop Oil campaigners, risk prosecution and even imprisonment. Are we all crazy?

So what is the weather like here in the Languedoc?
Full sun icons stretch for as far as the eye can see on our regional fifteen day weather forecast 'meteofrance.' Meanwhile, fires have been raging around Arles which is not so far away from us. These are now under control, but the whole of the Buches du Rhone region is on red alert for fire risk, because of the dryness and strong winds. Should we be worried?
