NEW climate change data has revealed that Spanish summers are now five weeks longer than they were in the 1980s.
A report by Aemet and the Ministry for the Ecological Transition analysed meteorological data for Spain from the last 40 years.
The research claims that around 32 million people are affected by a warming climate and so-called ‘tropical nights’ where temperatures do not drop below 20°.
It also found that ‘the surface with semi-arid climate has increased’ by 30,000 square kilometers in the last 30 years – an area the same size of Galicia.
