    KILLER WEATHER LIKELY TO BE MORE COMMON

    Climate change: global weather predicted to become increasingly extreme despite warnings

    Rose Troup Buchanan, 27 November 2014 (UK Independent)

    “Global weather will become increasingly extreme, with the planet facing rising surfacing temperatures, higher sea levels and flash flooding…[T]he most vulnerable people, either elderly populations or those living in extreme poverty, will face increasing risk from shifting weather patterns, according [Resilience to Extreme Weather] by The Royal Society…From 1980 to 2004 the total cost of extreme weather came to – conservatively - $1.4 trillion…Of this sum, only one quarter was insured damage…And in the next 100 years top scientists explain this may only worsen. The impact of flooding is expected to quadruple - while boiling hot summers will increase 10-fold…[The report said the natural variability of global weather – and lack of detailed data available – indicated there might be…’unprecedented extremes, meaning that the past may not remain a good analogue for the future’…[and] the freak weather events, such as the British heatwave off 2003 which killed thousands of elderly and brought the country to a halt, may become more common…” click here for more
