Key Impacts of Global Temperature Rise


So the minimum which lukewarmer skeptics like Paterson and Nigel Lawson will allow themselves to believe (1C) involves: 

  • Water stress for many
  • Droughts in mid latitudes
  • Increased coral bleaching
  • Increased extinctions risk
  • Localised loss of food production
  • Flood and storm damage
  • Increased mortality from extreme events
These risks are what the Secretary of State for the Environment classify under "Not a Problem".

Is he competent to be a Minister?
