Read them through and give at least three reasons why such crazy happenings are bad for people and the planet.
The summers of 1972 and 2003 in Moscow were so hot that the forests around the capital caught fire, smoke filled the city and stayed for several days.
In January 1987 snow fell on the gondolas of Venice2 and the usually sunny coasts of France.
In 1987, 1990 and 2003 European countries had terrible storms. The strong winds ruined a lot of forest, millions of trees.
