    OMG i.e. the "Oceans are Melting Greenland" kind. It's kind of become obvious that hitting +20°C above normal temperatures three times over the winter is something we should take not off... The main concerns seem to be what if the rest of the world gets that level of temperature increase and what will happen to the ice on Greenland.
    Over 7 meters sounds like something you may notice at the beach. So this initiative is asking the question:

    The aim to pull together all the needed data to build a realistic model and work out the answer.

    Slightly worrying. I wonder if that NASA computer model will ever happen. Trump wants to stop NASA doing politicised science.

    It seems like the desolation of ice sheets keeps happening faster than we expect with expediently growing worse case scenarios.

    That is odd. I read a book on meteorology, which is actually a pretty difficult subject (lots of mathematics, lots of physics, lots of geography). Basically, if you were having a spell of good weather, someone one else was getting worse than usual weather. Iceland is not having a good summer, but I was surprised it was hot most places.

    It seems to me the current government has totally lost interest in combatting climate change.

    It was always one of my fears with this Brexit thing. It's taken up so much of the governments time that there is barely any time left to run the country. Not that our government has ever taken man made climate change really seriously, they make too much money out of tax on oil based products.

    When they do something it seems half baked.

    While encouraging more charging points seem like a good idea, surely you also want to encourage solar panels too. I think all new build homes, with off road parking, should be forced to have solar panels, batteries and electric car charging points. Business buildings too should have to have the same.

    Makes sense to at least get new buildings right.
