Professor Kevin Anderson of the Tyndall Centre, Britain's national centre for excellence in the study in climatology and its consequences doesn't seem to have got the memo about low climate sensitivity:
He recommended investment in public transport and renewable energy.
"The new president of the World Bank has said he expects to see people fighting for food and water everywhere.
"Hopefully we would be more organised and find a rationing system.
"We are not talking about many many generations away. We are talking about our own lifetimes and the lives of our children."
In the most likely scenarios, the Met Office climate change predictions for the Government forecast temperatures in the UK to increase from the 1961 to 1990 average of 10 to 17C in the summer to 15 to 22C by 2080.
Is this the result of one of those climate change communication strategy meetings? Louder! Longer! Pottier!
Take it away Kevin.
No, this seems to be based on some confusion between global and UK projections. Global is 5 (allegedly), UK is more because land warms more than ocean.
