So we survived the heatwave. For the first time ever the UK managed above 40°C in many parts, and we experience many tropical nights (nights that are above 20°C) but Homes in UK not designed for the heat. So what action can be taken, What can be done about new homes being built
We had wildfires burning out homes. 60 properties damaged in the UK with 41of those properties destroyed in fires in London.
The record is now held at Coningsby in eastern England at 40.3°, a record the town probably doesn't want. The trains couldn't cope because the rails are not set to cope with more than 35°C
It's not just us. India, France, Spain recorded a staggering 42-3°C making those countries some of the hottest places on Earth. The record is 56.7 °C recorded in 1913 in death valley
We talk about; What are we going to do about this? the fact that Climate change has happened. It will continue to get worse
