Substantial uncertainties exist when trying to predict how large areas will react to the changing climate, and when it comes to global climate the UK is an anomaly. This is because it is warmer than other countries located at the same latitude e.g. Newfoundland. The reason for this warmth is the Gulf Stream, which draws […]

Data from millions of thermometer measurements taken from all over the world from as far back as 1860, allow calculation of average surface air […]
