Now that’s what I call climate change

Birmingham has never been cool but this is ridiculous. According to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change:
The UK Climate Projections published last month show that if we don’t take action by 2080 the temperature for the hottest day of the year in the West Midlands could increase by a scorching 100 C by 2080 and even by 2040 there could be 11 per cent less rainfall in the summer leading to subsidence, lower crop yields and water stress.
As Caroline Ahern would say, “Scorchio.”

I've been to Birmingham in winter. An increase in temperature of 100C can only be a good thing.
