As chaos from climate change ramps up in the coming decades, making floods, droughts and heatwaves commonplace, Europe will be ready. So says the European Environment Agency, which launched its five-year assessment of the state of Europe’s environment in Copenhagen, Denmark, this week.

A key message is that we must prepare now for the catastrophes that will become more frequent if the world warms up as predicted. “Many of the decisions we make today will determine how we are going to live in 2050,” said Hans Bruyninckx, executive director of the agency, at the launch of The European Environment State and Outlook 2015.
