Climate Variability

4th July 2017

Countries across the globe have experienced severe weather changes throughout the past few months. The UK was affected by an extreme heatwave last week, with temperatures rising to a scorching 34 degrees Celsius. This prompted the government to issue a level three amber heat alert and place emergency services on standby.

Meanwhile, 4,255 miles away in the southern states of the USA there were reports of a tropical storm affecting millions of people. To date, this has caused two deaths as a result of the heavy rain and harsh winds.
