Farmers across northern and central Europe are facing crop failure and bankruptcy as one of the most intense regional droughts in recent memory strengthens its grip.
States of emergency have been declared in Latvia and Lithuania, while the sun continues to bake Swedish fields that have received only 12% of their normal rainfall.
The abnormally hot temperatures – which have topped 30C in the Arctic Circle – are in line with climate change trends, according to the World Meteorological Organization. And as about 50 wildfires rage across Sweden, no respite from the heatwave is yet in sight

The Earths climate has gone through extremes before, the problem is that if people were starving five hundred miles away you wouldn't know. Cities had fields within walking distance to feed the city with local food production. Plus a grain reserve in case of a poor harvest. Now we have massive cities and industrialized non local food production. What could go wrong?
