Skip to comments.Climate change warning: Killer winter storms for next THIRTY years
Posted on 12/08/2013 6:11:53 AM PST by IbJensen
KILLER freezes, floods and heatwaves will devastate Britain during the next 30 years, climate experts have warned.
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common.
There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people.
Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges.
Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt obliged to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people.
Sir Brian said: Given the tragic events this year in the rest of the world and the recent IPCC report, EASAC feels obliged to draw attention to the growing impact of extreme weather in Europe.
The continents leading experts had made a detailed study of likely extreme weather, he said.
Sir Brian warned: From the major loss of lives in heatwaves to the economic and human costs of floods and storms, the implications are worrying.
They present the European Union and Member States with significant challenges in preparing Europe for a future with greater frequency of extreme weather.

Junk science like this 'Gorebal Warming' nonsense would be mildly amusing if so many 'scientists' weren't trying to ram this down our throats!
I certainly remember a time when we didnt have storms where people died.
The sun heats the earth. Driving a Prius will not change that.
Excuse me, but..................
.....Does ANYBODY still believe this sh*t???
Yup. We got to shovel about another 7 inches of globull warming off the driveway yesterday(thanks Mr. Snow plow driver for the HUGE pile of snow at the end of it) and right now it’s about 3 degrees out. Don’t think it’s hit bottom yet since the sun isn’t up for another 30 minutes.
As long as Killer Storms kill climate activist & liberals I’m good.
Just a decade or so ago these same pinheads said British children would grow up never seeing snow.
And since then, Britain has had some truly severe winter weather events.
So now it's on to claiming the weather is somehow more extreme, even though each event has precedents in human history (let along geological history).
I guess that's your fallback position when the globe refuses to keep warming.
No worries. According to Algore the earth isnt gonna last that long, anyway.
These watermelons just can't seem to get it right.But,nevertheless,they're convinced that we in the West should commute by roller skates,do without refrigerators and shiver in the dark.
There was a book that came out a couple of years ago, title was “Not By Fire But By Ice”. I read excerpts at the time and I think the author had a website. It made a LOT more sense to me than globull ‘warming’. Whatever the ‘theory’, the earth/weather will cycle as it will and mankind is along for the ride.
I hate when that happens. Most of the time I just wish they didn't plow and save tax dollars.
I’m still mad about the light bulbs.
Better be prepared for the Rapture then. For rumors of wars, and weather issues will be front and center of it.
But it depends if you are pre or post Rapture people.
OMG, that car must have an inch and a half of wet snow on it!
Whatever scary message will advance collectivism and islam, they will try. Truth is immaterial.
LOL! Yup. My neighbor somehow managed to make him avoid my driveway last year after my back surgery. Guess he forgot or thinks I must be all better now. As you probably know the snow he piles up is more compacted and tougher to move than the nice dry powder in the drive itself. Where’s the enterprising youngsters that used to shovel you driveway for $10? Oh, that was us. Why go out in the cold when you can be immersed in a video game killing zombies with a chain saw?
These four steps are pretty much guaranteed to fix whatever problem you may run across in life.
Global cooling, then global warming, and now it is cooling again. In timing that is in diametric opposition to what the atheistic chicken little libtards are trying to predict and profit from at each time.
This is proof that not only does god exist, but he loves watching libs fail and has a sense of humor.
Obayma has healed the planet.
I believe they believe it, and they have the pulpit from which to preach it.
Whosoever “THEY” are!
This will be their "new" climate change model, hotter summers, colder winters. "Climate Change".
I remember back towards the Spring. The lefty Weather Channel predicted like 17 storms and 10 Hurricanes in the Gulf area. Didn’t get close to that. Most turned out to the Atlantic before they got to the USA.
Wasn’t there supposed to not be any more snows after 2010?
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-— I want my GOREBULL warming and I want it NOW......
Another shovel-ready job in the making!
Are these the same “experts” who not too long ago were claiming man caused global warming would melt the polar ice and we would all be swimming by now? Do that didn’t work for them, climate change was DOA... So what, they looked at a calendar, noticed winter was almost upon us, and decided to try to sell a cold weather scare? These guys are no better than carnival hucksters. Maybe worse.
“Everyone talks about the weather but nobody does anything.”
That joke used to be real common but not anymore.
Liberals were too stupid to know it was a joke and took it serious.
What everyone knew was a joke is now reality to the left.
That is the power of propaganda.
Quick question... why did guy #2 take his gloves off in freezing weather to brace himself and support the weight of guy#3 dangling below?
The people in charge do.
Mother Nature’s in charge; we’re just along for the ride.
“...Junk science like this ‘Gorebal Warming’ nonsense would be mildly amusing if so many ‘scientists’ weren’t trying to ram this down our throats! “
Just as those with marshmallow degrees and no talent go into “public service” , science majors who really should be majoring in English go into “climate research”.
Yes, WET snow on the car and ground. Hardly a killer freeze.
So am I, and we are not the only ones. We need an organized grass-roots effort to VOTE OUT EVERY Congresscritter who was involved in taking our lightbulbs away!
But they think it will, and it mAkes them feel good so it does save the planet in their little mind.
Sorry, you have to get in the back of the line.
Behind bees, birds, clowns, rabbits and tomatoes.
And a ‘lovely’ ride it is too, at times. Did you see the FR post on the snowflake pics? Don’t have the thread, but one of the FReepers posted this link for the photographer’s work:
Even Al Gore doesn't believe it. If he did, would he have bought a mansion right on the ocean front? Would his mansion in Tennessee use more energy in a month than the average house does in a year?
Never question the decisions of Roland Emmerich!
they believe that they should never work a day in their lives,and that a carbon tax would guarantee that.
Prius drivers are useful idiots. To the GLOBALISTS, the environmental movement(global warming, climate change or extreme weather) is just a tool to provide revenue for the United Nations to become a true world government. Carbon tax, carbon credits, redistribution of wealth. COMMUNISM.
Does anyone see the irony that SUV’s may end up saving us from an ice age?
Maybe the non-Christian, non-WASP immigrants will go home to a warmer place.
“GLOBAL WARMING” was a BUST and has somewhat fizzled out... I guess it’s time they tried selling the “GLOBAL FREEZING” idea.
Wait a minute. I thought the Earth “had a fever”?
