Marine Foam Fills Streets of Spanish City Hit by Storm Gloria (+Video)
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Spain has been battered by Storm Gloria for a few days, with one town seeing a bizarre sight: foam filling the village streets.
A footage posted online shows that the foam, which is caused by the agitation of organic matter in seawater, stuck to the walls of buildings as it engulfed the coastal town, on Monday.
The wave of sea foam brought ashore by Storm Gloria swept through the town of Tossa de Mar in Spain's Catalonia region.
Spain's new government declared a national climate emergency on Tuesday, taking a formal first step toward enacting ambitious measures to fight climate change.
The declaration approved by the Cabinet says the left-of-center Socialist government will send to parliament within 100 days its proposed climate legislation. The targets coincide with those of the European Union, including a reduction of net carbon emissions to zero by 2050.
Spain's coalition government wants up to 95% of the Mediterranean country's electricity to come from renewable sources by 2040. The plan also foresees eliminating pollution by buses and trucks and making farming carbon neutral.
