Climate change is as dangerous as war, says UN chief

In his first address on the subject, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he would make climate crisis the focus of talks with leaders at a meeting of the Group of Eight industrialized nations – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain, the United States and Russia. He also urged the U.S. to take the lead in the fight against global warming.

Britain experiencing its second warmest winter on record

The UK mean temperature reached 5.47C (41.8F) compared with the warmest winter on record in 1988-89, when the mean was 5.82C (42.5F). In southern England, winter warmth set a new high, reaching 6.53C (43.8F), beating 6.49C (43.7F) in 1989-90. And meteorologists say there’s more to come.
