I'm sure they will all be welcomed as refugees needing our help and not as filthy foreigners bringing disease and violence.

It's still better than waiting for the glaciers to advance and swallow up the whole of the UK. Then you'd have about 60 million refugees, not counting the refugees from Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Scandinavia....

60 million refugees in 50,000 years time or 2 billion refugees in 80 years.

Tough choice.

The Lord knows that all thy plans are futile.

Long before the glaciers reach little England, the Great Filter will have taken care of the problem. This species is not fit to pass the great filter.

The year 2019 was the second hottest on record for the planet’s surface, according to latest research. The analyses reveal the scale of the climate crisis: both the past five years and the past decade are the hottest in 150 years.

The succession of records being broken year after year is “the drumbeat of the Anthropocene”, said one scientist, and is bringing increasingly severe storms, floods, droughts and wildfires.

The extra heat was apparently due to the fires, volcanic eruptions, etc., not a so-called climate crisis.

For fires to spread requires it to be hot and dry.
Volcanic eruptions cause short term cooling due to the sulphur and particulates they push into the upper atmosphere.

So we have extra heat allowing the fires to spread faster and further, volcanoes that do not cause extra heat in the short term and you speaking bubbles.

I thought the "extra" heat was apparently due to the very unusual coincidence of 3,563,103 Australians all flicking their Bic lighters at the same moment. Thank the Good Lord that we, here on POFO, have a bottomless source of truth at our disposal in the name of "Hindsite" ……..

Halle- fucking- lujah :)

No. It has to be dry, but it is more important for it to be windy than hot. Canada and Russia routinely have forest fires at temperatures between 10C and 20C if the wind conditions are unfavorable. Dry trees burn just fine at an ambient temperature of 0C.
So we have extra heat allowing the fires to spread faster and further,.

Nope. The Aussie fires were caused by the failure of the monsoon rains, which was caused by the anomalous COLD of the Indian Ocean.

The International Monetary Fund makes regular estimates of worldwide subsidies to fossil fuels — subsidies that partly take the form of tax breaks and outright cash grants, but mainly involve not holding the industry accountable for the indirect costs it imposes. In 2017 it put these subsidies at $5.2 trillion; yes, that’s trillion with a “T.” For the U.S., the subsidies amounted to $649 billion, which is about $3 million for every worker employed in the extraction of coal, oil and gas.

Given the scale of subsidies we give to fossil fuels, the industry as a whole should be regarded as a gigantic grift. It makes money by ripping off everyone else, to some extent through direct taxpayer subsidies, to a greater extent by shunting the true costs of its operations off onto innocent bystanders.

And let’s be clear: Many of those “costs” take the form of sickness and death, because that’s what local air pollution causes. Other costs take the form of “natural” disasters like the burning of Australia, which increasingly bear the signature of climate change.
