Ibimet, the Italian national research council's institute of biometeorology, has revealed that the Italian climate is changing fast. In the last 15 years the temperature of the Tyrrhenian sea has risen by two degrees centigrade. The higher temperatures cause more evaporation and humidity and more intense rainfall and flooding. Mediterranean cyclones, which bring very heavy rainfall and strong winds, usually on the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian coastlines, have increased from an average of five or six a year to 15 or 16 a year and periods of very hot weather are becoming more frequent and are lasting longer. Farmers are harvesting crops earlier and the wine harvest has moved forward by as much as 20 days in some regions. Migrating birds are returning to Italy earlier and leaving later, and birds that usually stayed to the south of Rome for the winter are now wintering as far north as Milan.
