Statement from Extinction Rebellion on the latest UK Climate Projections (UKCP18)

Extinction Rebellion welcomes the Met Office’s Climate Projections 2018 report (UKCP18), which we have asked our scientists to examine. The Met Office paints an alarming picture of what we will most likely face in the UK.  At first glance, we are concerned that the Met Office’s projections underplay the climate and ecological emergency that we are facing – that they are on the conservative side – and therefore limit the potential responses to that emergency. The Met Office states that some of the UKCP18 work is based on the IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report which was published in 2013.
