The UK Experiences Climate Change Along With The Rest Of The World

The world is changing and the climate is worsening. It is pretty obvious by now as we witness and experience first-hand the worsening of natural calamities and disasters that not only destroys properties but also take lives. It seems like we can’t just ignore global warming and climate change any longer. If you look at the state of the environment right now, you’d likely heave a deep sigh and wonder what awaits the future generation. We can’t leave behind a legacy of pollution, depleting resources, and a planet that is increasingly becoming inhospitable to all living things.

You are not safe wherever you are in the world. Whether you live in big cities like London or far-away rural areas, there are dangers lurking around the corner. A few scattered rain showers can trigger landslides in high-risk areas, hurricanes can lead to storm surges and heavy flooding, and earthquakes can cause tsunamis. Just look at Antarctica. A big chunk of a glacier, bigger than the entire US, has completely separated from the continent and may eventually melt over time making the sea level rise. Even a first-world nation like the UK also faces their fair share of issues concerning global warming.

Squid and anchovies, more commonly eaten by Britons holidaying abroad, are being drawn into UK waters in large numbers by climate change, according to major new report that suggests the nation’s long-lost bluefin tuna is also returning.

However, global warming is harming sea birds, such as puffins, fulmars, terns and razorbills, as the fish they rely on are driven north or deeper as waters warm. The analysis of the impact of climate on the UK’s seas, which draws on the work of 400 scientists, found a steady rise in water temperature.

It also found a clear rising trend in sea level, leading to much more frequent extreme high water events. Improved defences and forecasting have prevented an increase in coastal floods, but the report warns that sea level rise around the UK is likely to accelerate.


Issues like these are out of the norm and a clear proof that climate change is at work. And there are more deadly issues we need to face sooner or later aside from the presence of squids and anchovies in UK waters. We have disregarded Mother Nature for a long time and we are now paying for the error of our ways. Over time, these changes can have deadly consequences that we’ll regret not taking action against it now while we still can.

Seabirds around Britain’s shores face “an uncertain future” because of climate change with several species expected to become “extremely rare or even extinct” over the next century, according to a major review.

The report, which summarised research carried out by some 400 scientists over the last 10 years, warned puffins, terns, kittiwakes and fulmars were all struggling with the rising temperatures, while severe summer storms were having “strong negative effects” on breeding colonies of several species.

In addition to the rising sea temperatures — from usually below 11C between the 1870s and 1930s to more than 12C in 2014 — the water has also become more acidic and the number of times sea levels have reach extremely high levels has soared.


Not only should we be wary of environmental changes but also its effect on various living things, not only us humans. Various animal and plant life have vanished from the face of the planet mostly because of human activities. If we don’t change our ways, it won’t be long before many more become extinct, even us. Our modern technology won’t be able to save us from a certain doom since we also use up natural resources in fueling many of these industries and technologies. Let us all unite to prevent the hastening of climate change and all nations must work side by side in helping address this issue before we eventually run out of time.
