When Europeans commemorate the Great War of this summer they should be reflecting not only on the diplomatic blunders and the enormous waste of lives but also the beginning of a new approach to international relations epitomised by the EU. Diplomatic alliances and promises made during the First World War, especially in the Middle East, also came back to haunt Europeans a century later.

Scribbling for environmental, social and economic justice Another Historic Storm: Typically those waters [are] much too cool for anything this strong.
A region that was traditionally considered primarily out of the range of past powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricanes under 20th Century climatology. One that, in a warmer world, is increasingly under the gun. Ophelia roars over Ireland.
On October 14, Ophelia hit major hurricane status as it moved swiftly toward Europe. Crossing over warmer than normal North Atlantic Ocean waters, the storm maintained hurricane status up to 12 hours before barreling into Ireland. At that time, cooler waters caused the storm to transition to extra-tropical.
But this transition was not enough to prevent Ireland from being struck by hurricane-force gusts up to mphstorm surge flooding, and seeing structural damage reminiscent to a category one storm.
Yet another historic storm that forced the National Hurricane Center to shift its tracking map east of the 0 degree longitude line Greenwich since they had not planned for a hurricane or its tropical remnants to move so far out of the typical zone for North Atlantic hurricanes see image at bottom of page.
As with many of the recently powerful storms, 1 to 2 degree Celsius above average sea surface temperatures were a prime enabler allowing Ophelia to maintain such high intensity so far north.
And under the present trend, it appears that the Atlantic coasts of Spain, Portugal, France, Ireland and England are now all more likely to see tropical storm and hurricane impacts in the future as sea surface temperatures continue to rise.
In the past, strikes by tropical cyclones to places like Ireland were considered to be rare — with the last Hurricane to impact Ireland being Debbie in But recent climate science studies indicate that global warming is likely to increase the frequency of hurricane and tropical storm impacts to Northern Europe: One model predicted an increase from 2 to 13 in the number of cyclones with hurricane-force winds in the waters offshore western Europe.
The present Atlantic hurricane season can now only be described as a surreal caricature of what we feared climate change could produce. Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and a dozen or more Caribbean islands are now devastated disaster areas.
Some locations may feel the effects of the off-the-charts powerful storms enabled by a warmer than normal ocean for decades to come. Puerto Rico, unless it receives far more significant aid from the mainland than the Trump Administration appears to be willing to provide, may never fully recover.
This figure really says it all. Ophelia is a huge outlier from the typical envelope of major hurricane tracks in the Atlantic pic. So far, according to this measure, is the 7th strongest hurricane season ever recorded since records began in The most intense season,may see its own record of ACE exceeded over the coming days and weeks.
For storms still appear to be forming over record warm waters. Meanwhile, during recent years, powerful late October storms like Matthew and Sandy have tended to crop up over warmer than normal ocean waters even as late season storms ranging into November and December appear to be more common.The effects of World War I caused such an “external shock of such violent magnitude” that the European economy had never been exposed to.
