Our global weather is changing and becoming more extreme: that’s a fact.
Do a little bit of independent research on the Internet and you’ll see that our planet is on track for yet another year of unusual extreme weather events, many of which will claim new records in the history books.
The World Meteorological Organization – along with many other respected sources – confirmed that 2016 was the hottest on record and that carbon dioxide levels in our planet’s atmosphere have ‘reached new heights’ as the warming trend continues.
They explained that the Arctic has seen three recent heat waves and Antarctic sea ice was at a record low. These changes are leading to new oceanic and atmospheric patterns which of course, have an enormous knock-on effect on our weather.
“We are now in truly uncharted territory,” World Climate Research Programme Director, David Carlson, said in a recent statement.
Bizarrely, one of our Kenyan tree planting friends in Laikipia country, shared pictures on Tuesday evening of the fields nearby covered in so many huge hailstones, it looked they’d had snowfall!
The excitement level in our UK office is almost at fever pitch. This has been partly fuelled by British summer temperatures reaching 30 degrees at their peak last week, but also because we are developing an incredible project which we are bursting to reveal to you… and will do very soon.
Suffice to say, we will be making lots of positive noise about reforestation, on a global stage.
