What happens if the world warms up by 2C, 3C, 4C...?

What happens if the world warms up by 2°C?

"At a 2°C rise, people will begin to die of what is now considered normal summers. Countries already hit by hurricanes face ever greater storms. Plant growth slows down, then stops. Plants don’t absorb CO2 as efficiently, instead emitting it. The extra carbon sees global warming spiral out of control. In the year 2100 sea levels would rise by a meter displacing 10% of the world's population. In this 2°C future, ecosystems across the globe collapse. A third of all life on earth faces extinction."

Greens support a People's Vote on Brexit

Ahead of the referendum the Green Party campaigned to remain in the European Union and we still hold firm to our commitment to Europe. It is becoming clearer by the day that Brexit would be a total disaster for the vast majority of UK citizens, even if we had a government with adequate negotiating skills, which we clearly don't.

Now that the scale of the looming disaster is becoming clearer, the British people are changing their mind on Brexit.  Our former joint leader Caroline Lucas's speech at the People's Vote march in June was a clarion call for a vote on the final deal.

Despite what other parties might claim, the Greens were the first party to call for a vote on the final deal (in 2016) and we have the clearest vision of a better Britain, better EU and better world.
