A report by Aemet states that 68.5% of Spaniards (32 million people) are now affected by climate change. The met agency explains that this is due to the past ten years having been hotter and to longer summers. These now last almost five weeks longer than at the start of the 1980s and have meant an increase in the number of "tropical nights" (when temperatures do not dip below 20C).
