World News: Heat Wave Disrupts French Government

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The heat wave that is currently raging in France also questions the adaptability of a modern country in the face of climate change. France, and the countries of the world, will necessarily face and manage a precipitous change.

For several days, France suffocates and sweats! Crushed by a wave of heat that was to paralyze the country, quibble the economy of the fifth world power and cause an unprecedented panic! And caught in the general runaway, the Ministry of National Education has even shifted the tests of the National Diploma of Patent (DNB) to avoid any unfortunate incident. That is to say!

May the planet reassure itself! No cataclysm has occurred or will occur. However, if all precautions taken upstream fall within the anecdote as quickly forgotten as announced, however remains the issue of adaptation to climate constraints in the coming years. France will not be the only one affected by these changes.

And while modern states are globally able to cope with these extreme weather events, there is nothing to prove that they will be able to cope with the climatic disturbances that are coming because climate and meteorology are two different things.

Cultural Battle and Air Conditioning

An explanation is needed. At the heart of the heat wave, it is the issue of adaptation that is the most complex. How to cope while our daily life is punctuated by a comfort that makes fun of the greenhouse gases or the warming now started.

While ecologists and environmentalists have won the cultural battle to say that the climate that prevailed until then changes at great speed V. But without global agreement, awareness will have little effect and everyone knows it. (Read theechos.fr: https://www.lesechos.fr/financemarches/marches-financiers/climat-de-tres-gros-investisseurs-reclament-des-mesures-durgence1032637).

And even if the programmed increase in temperatures, the now visible change of climate models are they strong enough and powerful enough to push us to radically change our habits? Who will agree to sell his car connected and equipped with air conditioning against a vehicle as connected but lacking air conditioning system because the system generates hot air contributing to global warming?

And the examples are not lacking. At the same time, would it not be time to also question the immature and puerile aspect of our Western societies which are moved by unusual temperatures but which are only episodes while other countries, especially Sub-Saharan Africa, suffer them almost daily.

Reality and Responsibilities

To argue the experience that these populations have in the face of these extreme temperatures is a false answer whose sole purpose is to hide the reality and especially to avoid facing our own responsibilities and our own mistakes in terms of global warming.

It is now useless to multiply the fallacious excuses to postpone the deadline: the climate changes and we will have to change with him or prepare ourselves for a cruel tomorrow. Because in fine, the programmed increase of temperatures, including in the excesses that we know today, is not inevitable not in its progression but in the ability to protect itself.  

The fear we feel about it is related to our supposed or real incapacity to face it serenely more than to the health risks to which it exposes us. Imagination and creativity will certainly be the watchwords of the coming years to protect us in the best of a world from which we have precipitated change.
