«in the past month, Campania has experienced three flood episodeswith types of precipitation and impacts on the physical environment and comparable to each other in intensity and only fortunately, the number of victims was not greaterVizzini points out.

And from the month of July to this day, the hydrogeological instability that now characterizes all morphological-climatic environments of the peninsula, It claimed forty victims.

«The specific danger arising from the human climate crisis, as I prefer to call it, has become, in the eyes of all, an absolute emergency, and if on the other hand this year is hoped to be statistically exceptional in all its climatic evidence, On the other hand, one cannot rely on fate and hope that the coming years will not be marked by extreme extremes in atmospheric phenomena. Notwithstanding the appalling results of COP 27 and the often – as Vezzini concluded – inaccurate figures for the various statistics produced relating to the extreme meteorological events of the past year, An immediate national risk mitigation policy is urgently neededEven resorting to emergency economic strategies. If we can adapt to the economic crisis through sacrifices, human lives are priceless. In this apocalyptic year 2022, moreover as already predicted in the summer, climatic hazards continue to spread throughout the national territory.
