 Athens environment
An expert in disaster management, Efthymios Lekkas, expressed his concern that successive wildfires and heatwaves will spell the “environmental collapse” of Attica, home to the Greek capital, Athens, as the region continues to battle major wildfires burning through forests, brush, pastureland, residential settlements, farms and businesses.  

Earth's thermosphere recently hit a near 20-year temperature peak after soaking up energy from geomagnetic storms that bashed Earth this year. The temperature in the second-highest layer of the atmosphere will likely continue to climb over the next few years as the sun's activity ramps up, which could impact Earth-orbiting satellites, experts warn.
