Britain\’s temperature would rise by the average 7.2F (4C) which would mean Mediterranean summers and an extended growing season for new crops like olives, vines and apricots.
However deaths from heat waves will increase, droughts and floods would become more common, diseases like malaria may spread to Britain and climate change refugees from across the world are likely to head to the country.
I\’m really not quite sure why malaria might spread to Britain.
I currently live in a country which is rather more than 4 oC warmer than Britain and there\’s no malaria here.
Further, malaria used to be extant, endemic even, in Britain and it wasn\’t because the place was warmer.
That particular piece of climate change scaremongering is, well, just scaremongering.
