Filed under: General,Science by Orangemaster @ 8:20 am

The climate change in the Netherlands is happening twice as fast as compared to the rest of the world, according to television’s RTL Nieuws on Wednesday based on two yet to be published studies. Cees Molenaars of the KNMI (Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute) confirmed the news. “One of the parts of the report regards the warming up of all of Western Europe, which is twice as fast as elsewehere”, says Molenaars. He also says that there is no reason to panic on the short term. However, winters will be milder and there will be more precipitation.

More precipitation in the Netherlands is usually a euphemism for more rain and hail rather than snow. Ick.
