Tourists Suffer From "Paris Syndrome" As Climate Change Exacerbates Smell

Paris syndrome is often defined as a “state of severe culture shock”. Physical and psychological symptoms when Paris fails to live up to expectations have been known to include hallucinations, a rapid heart rate, dizziness and nausea.

Tourists Suffer From "Paris Syndrome" As Climate Change Exacerbates Smell

Paris can definitely be considered an overhyped destination as it attracts millions and millions of visitors and tourists each year. Many people come to Paris because of it being a bucket-list destination. Others visit because they aren't as familiar with other destinations to visit in France or in Europe. If you are an artist the negatives can be ignored as you visit small local galleries to large national museums, there's something artistic for everyone. If you appreciate art, dance, and creativity, then Paris doesn't disappoint. Some of the most famous museums include the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay.

Lille has emerged as a commercial and cultural capital to be reckoned with, while at the same time retaining its tolerance and sense of humor that earned it first place as France's friendliest city, according to the tongue-in-cheek ranking of travel site Topito. It is a place one can eat outside and not have your appetite turned because of pollution. In contrast to London and most of Europe's tourist destinations, there are more and more people over 75 years old in Paris, and between 2008 and 2024, the number of Parisians between 60 and 74 years old increased from 263,008 to 392,102. In France in 2023, 26% of people are over 60, equal to one in four inhabitants. By 2040, it will be nearly one in three, a demographic shock that will increase during the next two decades and poses formidable economic and social challenges.

France has the largest black population in Europe, although it is illegal for the French government to collect information about the racial and ethnic origin of its multicultural population on the national census, approximately 15 percent of the country is black or African. France is in stage four of the model of Demographic Transition called the 'low fluctuating' stage and reflects the current situation of France and the UK. In this stage both the birth rate of the indigenous populations and death rate fall, the birth rate more rapidly, to roughly even out.

Almost two-thirds of French people believe that white European Christian populations are being “threatened with extinction” as a result of immigration from Arab and Black African countries! According to a 2023 study by Pew Research, 11.8 percent of French people are Muslim — the highest proportion in Northern and Western Europe. The second largest religion in Germany is Islam, with around 3.0–4.7 million adherents (3.6–5.7% of the population), almost all of whom have full or partial North African backgrounds. Climate will have a big part in the demographic change because of the advanced age of indigenous Europeans overall.

Storm intensity is projected to increase across Europe, but changes in frequency are projected to differ across regions. Snowfall is projected to decrease in central and southern Europe, whereas mixed changes are anticipated for northern Europe. Sea levels will rise in all areas except the North Baltic Sea. Severe heat kills upwards of 90,000 indigenous who are not used to warm temperatures that African people see as a norm, this number has increased each year in Europe since the summer of 2022, according to a new study. For the study, researchers analyzed data on temperature and mortality, recorded daily across 26 countries, to determine the number of deaths due to severe heat.
