Regular heatwaves 'will kill thousands'

First topic message reminder :

The current heatwave could become the new normal for UK summers by 2040 because of climate change, MPs say.


The Environmental Audit Committee warns of 7,000 heat-related deaths every year in the UK by 2050 if the government doesn't act quickly. ......

I remember having torrential rain during the summer usually with thunderstorms, I don't know why people have to be warned about them.
I had a 20 min walk from the bus stop to my house when I first started work and still lived at home. One day in the summer the heavens opened while I was on the bus with some really crazy thunder and lightening, I think I made it home in record time and was just going through the gate when there was an almighty cap of thunder with lightening that I swear I felt the heat of on the back of my neck as I was bending over the gate to open it, I definately got in the front door in record time and although I had an umbrella I was soaked to the skin. Quite often the electricity would go off at such times we just got on with it.
I have come to the conclusion that it's not just the weather that's changed but people. Global warming, mmmm, more like weak feeble people.

That advert for loans where the boiler is broken and the boy can't have a shower and his mother tells him he'll have to smell today and she'll get it fixed tomorrow, really annoys me, what's wrong with boiling some water and having a strip wash. I know it's only an advert but the attitude that the world comes to an end without instant access modern conveniences seems to be in everything.
