Is the Earth's climate really getting worse?

The earth’s climate is getting worse for some people, and better for others. But even when you can say the climate is getting better – since warmer temperatures means it’s less freezing – the benefits are arguable, because that warmer weather brings more extremes. The more energy you put into the atmosphere, the more moisture can be held, which means more storm systems, and more floods. That’s the direction that we’re heading in. 

"The ice caps are melting, which means more sea into the ocean, and for some populations, the rising sea levels around islands, particularly in the Pacific and Indian oceans, means they’re in peril, it’s as simple as that."

Global warming can be natural too, but currently we believe it’s man-made, which is forcing the agenda. The ice caps are melting, which means more sea into the ocean, and for some populations, the rising sea levels around islands, particularly in the Pacific and Indian oceans, means they’re in peril, it’s as simple as that. Not only will rising sea levels cause economic problems, but migration in some shape or form, which could then affect areas such as Bangladesh, where big populations live. If you project forward, you have to include cities such as Miami and London, so we have got to be careful where we are going with this. That’s why it’s such a big subject, and the Paris climate convention and all the protocols associated with it. 

We’re saying, OK, human beings may well have messed things up, we’re going to revert that, and most people are in favour of that, even China and India nowadays, but Trump looks like he’s going backwards with whatever statistics he’s reading. But year on year, the temperature is going up. 2016 looks like being the warmest global temperatures on record, as was 2015, so the evidence is mounting. It’s up to me, or people in better positions than me, to convince people like Trump and others of how important this is. 

"Year on year, the temperature is going up. 2016 looks like being the warmest global temperatures on record, as was 2015, so the evidence is mounting."

The subject should be part of the curriculum in every single school. Learning about weather fronts, and lows and highs, is the basic understanding. They should include climate change, and man-made consequences, or the potential consequences. And then when they grow up, elect people who can do something about it rather than the opposite.
