Global warming in Britain will not mean a nice "café culture, sitting outside sipping lattes" but heatwaves that kill vulnerable elderly people and catastrophic flooding, a climate change expert has warned

Damn, I just bought a bunch of polo shirts. Wait, a 5 degree rise mens we go from 19 to 24 (from 68 to 80), maybe I'm okay. I'm a bit confused by the picture, and the statement "Last year was the wettest on record and the Met Office has warned that the frequency of extreme rainfall in the UK may already be increasing".

John...global warming means catastrophic climate CHANGE around the world. There is a LOT more going on than weather in the UK.

Don't you understand that we have lost the Arctic? Under/within that ice is an enormous amount of METHANE. Do you know what methane will do? ACCELERATE WARMING! Environments around the world will suffer...crops will fail, seas will rise, island chains we know now will disappear, millions of animals will starve and humanity will never be the same.

Unfortunately, it's ignorance like yours which compounds the problem.

Heatwaves, drought, flooding, storms-- we need to take actions to slow down or halt climate change and prevent more deaths.
