117 – Europe’s Climate in 2071



This map shows which climate European cities can expect 64 years in the future:


London‘s climate will resemble that of the Portuguese coast;

nParis weather will resemble that of the Extremadura, in the interior of the Iberian peninsula;

nStockholm and Oslo are a bit further to the north, close together and close to Barcelona;

nBarcelona itself will meteorologically migrate to northern Morocco;

nwhile Berlin will situate itself weather-wise in the Algerian hinterlands of Kabylia;

nIstanbul, the largest Turkish city, will move to the southern coast of that country;

nand will be joined there by Rome, as its present-day climate will prove all but eternal;

nHelsinki‘s weather will resemble that of central Europe, southern Poland to be exact;

nand finally, Saint Petersburg will come to feel like Belarus – although I’m not sure that’s much of an improvement.
