Future cities: Your 2050 Climate Twin

The Crowther Lab has investigated how global warming will affect 520 cities around the planet and matched those forecasts with cities that experience those temperatures now. The result is a simple to understand example of the likely results of global warming.

In 2050 London will have climate similar to that currently experienced by Barcelona. The temperature in London is expected to rise by 2.2 degrees centigrade over the next thirty years, resulting in temperatures that you would expect on the Mediterranean today. London is of course not the only city that can expect dramatic temperature increases from global heating. Madrid will be like Marrakesh, Seattle will resemble San Francisco and Washington D.C. will have a climate similar to Nashville today.
