Environment facts

Although it is difficult to be accurate about the impacts of climate change, scientists foresee a global temperature rise in the range of 1.4 - 5.8 degrees C by 2100 if current greenhouse gas emission trends remain unchecked.
 
Even if some measures are taken, the effect will continue accumulating for centuries.

The impacts of even a small increase in temperature are expected to be significant, particularly in certain regions. Effects are expected to include:

  • Flooding in low-lying coastal areas
  • Wetter, warmer winters and dryer, hotter summers in the Northern Hemisphere
  • More extreme weather conditions worldwide (storms, drought, heavy rainfall)

The impact will be far-reaching and will affect not only the humans but also the wildlife and their ecosystems on the planet; those that are able to adapt will survive, those that cannot won't.

To stabilise the atmosphere, deep reductions are required; the UK and other EU countries are committed to a 60% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.
