Climate change affecting Slovakia

THIS summer is likely to bring higher temperatures and drought after low rainfall in the winter and spring, meteorologists say, pointing to a trend of more volatile climate change in Slovakia.

The last 12 years have seen three of the hottest summers in Slovakia since 1871, including last year. Similar temperatures are expected this summer.

Hydrologist Michal Kravčík said that the temperature increases may be a result of the greenhouse effect.
