Extreme weather conditions will kill 152,000 Europeans a year by 2100: Study 5.8.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Europe's death toll from weather disasters could rise 50-fold by the end of this century, with extreme heat alone killing more than 150,000 people a year by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, scientists said on Friday. In a study in The Lancet Planetary Health journal, the scientists said their findings showed climate change placing a rapidly increasing burden on society, with two in three people in Europe likely to be affected if greenhouse gas emissions and extreme weather events are not controlled. The predictions, based on an assumption of no reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and no improvement in policies to reduce the impact of extreme climatic events, show European weather-related deaths rising from 3,000 a year between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 a year between 2071 and 2100. "Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards," said Giovanni ...

30 years after his disappeance, German hiker's body found in Swiss Alps 2.8.2017 DNA: Popular News
Police in south-western Switzerland say they have found in an Alpine glacier the remains of a German hiker who went missing almost exactly three decades ago. The regional Valais police department said today the remains of the unidentified man were found after two hikers last week happened upon a hand and a pair of shoes sticking out of the Hohlaub glacier. Lab tests identified the deceased man, who was about 44 when he went missing on Aug. 11, 1987. Valais police spokesman Markus Rieder said the victim's family has been informed. Swiss authorities are intermittently finding the bodies of adventurers who have gone missing in Alpine ice and snow.
