How did a small town in Canada become one of the hottest places on Earth? | Eric Holthaus | The Guardian

It’s the mountains of the Pacific coast that have had an essential and unique role in making this particular heat wave possible. Climate change is not just warming the surface of the planet, it’s warming Earth’s entire troposphere – the lowest layer of the atmosphere where all our weather occurs. That’s particularly true in mountainous areas, where temperatures are rising even faster than elsewhere. When snow and ice recedes or even disappears from mountains, the bare soil beneath can warm unimpeded. A 2015 study found that mountainous areas above 2,000 meters (6,500ft) are warming about 75% faster than places at lower elevations. (date: 01/07/2021)

UK Climate Risk

The Climate Change Committee is working on an independent advice report, due to be published in June 2021, which will inform the UK Government’s third CCRA (known as CCRA3). This website will host all of the outputs for the UK Climate Risk Independent Assessment (CCRA3) (date: 16/06/2021)
