The Netherlands records hottest September 6 in its history
The KNMI expects the weather in the next week to remain "sunny, dry, and very warm for this time of year," with the maximum on Thursday reaching 29 degrees Celsius.
Dutch newspaper NL Times reported on Wednesday that The Netherlands recorded the hottest September 6 temperature in the history of meteorological measurements.
The temperature jumped to 28.3 degrees Celsius at 2:20 PM local time in Utrecht, where the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) is located, surpassing the September 6, 1958 record of 28.2 degrees Celsius.
A month ago, exactly on August 6, in the same city, the lowest-ever temperature was registered at 15.8 degrees Celsius.
The KNMI expects the weather in the next week to remain "sunny, dry and very warm for this time of year," with the maximum on Thursday reaching 29 degrees Celsius.
Back in March this year, more than 100 environmental activists were in detention following their protests at the airport in the city of Eindhoven.
Members of the Scientist Rebellion and Extinction Rebellion groups blocked the entrance made for private jet departures at the Eindhoven Airport, in an attempt to call for a ban on private jets as they give off greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions more than a regular commercial plane.
Eindhoven airport released a statement expressing in response "that aviation, like other sectors, needs to (quickly) become more sustainable."
Europe's climate activism campaigns have been increasing amid calls for more sustainable policy agendas - especially since growing global temperatures could cost Europe's largest economy up to 910 billion euros ($979 billion) in a "strong" scenario without any adaptation measures, according to a German report this month.
