Climate change will disrupt wi-fi connections, cause regular power failures and lead railway lines to buckle unless Britain spends billions of pounds, Caroline Spelman, the Environment Secretary has warned. Speaking at Blackfriars Station in London, which Network Rail is currently fitting with solar panels and rainwater harvesting systems in order to be more resilient against power cuts, Ms Spelman said the UK is already investing £200 billion (of British Taxpayers money) over the next five years.
But that will not be enough to stop economic impacts
of climate change if it is invested in the wrong areas.
She warned of intense rainfall, droughts and heatwaves in the next 50 to 100 years because of man-made global warming. The signal from wi-fi cannot travel as far when temperatures increase. Heavy downfalls of rain also affect the ability of the device to capture a signal. Doom and gloom, but Spelman can save us all though, if only we hand her hundreds of billions of pounds. Ah yes, money from us to them. Isn’t that always the case ?
