Abstract

Climate change will affect all aspects of life, the species around
us, where we can live, where and how we can travel, and what we can grow and therefore eat. Although the predicted increases in average daily temperatures are within those that most, but not all, humans can accommodate , the increasing energy level in the atmosphere is already changing weather patterns, creating more frequent and more extreme weather events: heatwaves, storm surges, droughts, cold snaps and hurricanes. Sea levels are rising and countries and communities disappearing, while deserts are expanding.
