… by 2050, and can expect 3cm to 27cm of sea-level rise varying regionally across the UK, a 10% increase in heavy rainfall, and a 50% chance of each summer being hotter than that of 2018. If global greenhouse gas emissions are brought rapidly to net-zero in the second half of this century, UK temperatures (and rainfall) could be kept close to their level in 2050. However, sea levels in the UK would…

… by 2045 at the latest. The scientific evidence that climate change is happening is irrefutable. The average temperature at the surface of the Earth has now risen by about 1ºC since the pre-industrial period, ocean temperatures are increasing, ice-caps are melting, sea-levels are rising, and extreme weather events are increasing in frequency and intensity worldwide. Limiting global temperature…

… is happening is irrefutable. The average temperature at the surface of the Earth has now risen by about 1ºC since the pre-industrial period, ocean temperatures are increasing, polar ice-caps and glaciers are melting, sea-levels are rising, and extreme weather events are increasing in frequency and intensity worldwide. 2020 was declared the hottest year ever recorded by NASA. The world’s seven…

… than 3 million years ago, when the Earth was 2°– 3°C hotter and sea levels were 15–25 meters higher than today. The concentration of carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere continues to climb ever-higher, and today stands at 414ppm. Figure 1: Global average land-sea temperature anomaly relative to the 1961-1990 average temperature. Since the 1980s, average temperatures have exceeded the last…

… of the climate system and tipping points. There is already mounting evidence of a changing climate in the UK with life-cycle events occurring prematurely (e.g. when flowers bloom or pollinators emerge), rising sea- levels encroaching on coastlines, floods devastating local communities, and unprecedented heat waves harming people’s health and well-being. Climate projections suggest such events…
