The forecasts are based on new models prepared by the computer and see what the scientists said it was"an unprecedented number of severe heat waves" Over the past ten years.

The new forecasts more disturbing than stated in the report of the UN Panel on Climate Change last year, which only saying that "it is very likely that over the duration, frequency and intensity of periods of high temperatures or waves of hot weather in most parts of the land" of this century.
