As our planet gets warmer, the UK is likely to have hotter, drier summers and warmer, wetter winters.
Extreme weather events, such as heatwaves and heavy downpours could become more frequent and more intense. An example of this is the severe flooding experienced across Angus in 2015 and 2020.
Agriculture, one of the main economic sectors in Angus, has been described as being on the front line of climate change; the first to really feel its impacts. This last year was a bad one for British farms. Whilst many crops suffered, wheat production faced its worst yield in at least 30 years.
As sea levels rise and other parts of the world become uninhabitable, we are likely to face an increase in migration, as millions of people across the world are forced to relocate; climate refugees.
