“EASAC feels obliged to draw attention to the growing impact of extreme weather in Europe”
Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council
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 continent’s 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.”

It  is 10 F below normal, here in generally mild SoCal.

Normally when it barely cools off in the winter, people bundle up because they get to wear their winter outfits. Now however they bundle up because it is cold, for us.

But "climate change?" NO. I have a photo of my neighborhood in Dec. 1974, when I bought this house.

There was snow!! Rare indeed. No snow since, but big cold hail a couple of times.

Weren't the "experts" predicting the next ice age about that time?

Correct. The weather reader on Fox News a few minutes ago, mentioned possible snow in the Lost Angeles area.

Plenty of altitude within an hour of downtown LA.

Rained during the last 3 hours, and could yield snow on Mt. Wilson etc. Mid 20s there overnight.
