as people across asia and europe suffer the consequences of record high temperatures. scientists say new attribution studies prove heat wave, a driven by man made temperature increases. we have so many more heat waves. we have heat waves in europe, and we have heat waves in saudi arabia, ravia at the moment, we have heat place and china right now, we have heat waves in the us. and this is exactly what sort of the review paper also shows. we just see the frequency of heat lamps has gone up so much. so this is, this is very much we don't need to do attribution studies on every single one of them. because we know already that climate change is a key driver here as extreme weather event from scorching temperatures to torrential rain, cause widespread death and destruction. research is trying to identify the influence of climate change on individual weather events going back 20 years. in the last 3 months, monsoon rains, on least disastrous flooding in bangladesh,

electricity demand is outstripping supply threatening power outages. but well, climate change is a key driver. it's not the reason many of these extreme weather events turn into catastrophes, say, scientists, but high poverty rates, poor infrastructure, and crumbling health care systems, which must factor into future disaster prevention strategies. charlie angela out a 0 wesley droughts in the horn of africa as being blamed for rise in child's marriage anew. unicef reports as the regions, most severe drought and 40 years is pushing families to the edge. girls is young as 12 are being forced into marriage and many face a higher risk of female genital mutilation. if you appears the worst affected by the droughts child marriage, there has more than doubled in one year. the number of children of risk of dropping out of school in kenya's, somalia, and ethiopia due to drought.
