This heatwave is caused by wind from the North African Sahara moving north into Europe. We just need to reclaim the desert to prevent this. Without shade from trees the ground heats up, the air heats up, it no longer rains, the soil dries out and gets blown away and the land turns to desert. Then the edges of the desert are parched, the vegetation dies and the desert grows. This has been going on for thousands of years while CO2 levels have only risen in the last 40. We can solve all of this just by reclaiming the desert. The Chinese have been doing it for 50 years and they have reclaimed an area the size of the Netherlands from the Gobi desert. The Gobi is now reducing in size. All these countries with desert and high populations can get to work seeding forests. They will have work to occupy them, land to grow and live on and it requires nothing more than seeds and labour. Anyone can do it. Forget technological solutions they don't work they just cause more pollution.
