Met Office unveils climate change map

Met Office unveils climate change map
The Met Office has unveiled a new climate change map to correspond with the crucial climate change conference in Copenhagen today (December 7th).

Entitled The Impacts of a Global Temperature Rise of Two Degrees Celsius, the map emphasises the importance of minimising the mean worldwide temperature rise.

"Restricting overall global warming to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels won't eliminate the impacts of climate change, but it will limit the risk of dangerous climate change," said Vicky Pope, head of climate change advice at the Met Office.

"If emissions are allowed to continue unchecked, our research shows that they are likely to lead to warming of four degrees Celsius or more by the end of the century. This increases the risk of dangerous feedbacks … that will amplify the warming and lead to irreversible damage to the world's climate and ecosystems."

According to the Met Office, the difference between a global rise in temperature between two and four degrees Celsius is "stark".

Statistics published by the organisation show that it could mean the difference between average sea levels rising between 40cm and 80cm.
