Shocking AI images show how climate change could impact the UK

With multiple places around the world currently experiencing extreme weather conditions, the looming threat of climate change has never felt more real.

The Eco Experts has predicted and visualised the impact of climate change by 2100, feeding expert analysis into AI platform Midjourney to show how wildfires, floods and drought will impact the UK if action was not taken to mitigate climate change.

The images show how, if climate change continues at the rate it is currently at, our local landscapes, homes and iconic landmarks could be threatened.

The images are apparently based on current rates of global warming and endorsed by UK climate experts.

As an island, water presents some of the biggest risks for the UK. Using data from climate change non-profit Climate Central, the images show that Cambridge, Great Yarmouth, and a number of London landmarks are at risk of flooding.

Even places away from the water aren’t safe as wildfires are also likely to be a concern.

Long summer heat waves all over the UK could cause wildfires more frequently due to the vast green areas of the country.

‘These images are designed to show the shocking reality facing the UK if we don’t act. We often hear that flooding and wildfires will reach the UK on a grand scale, but people have rarely seen what it would actually look like,’ said Charlie Clissitt, editor of The Eco Experts.

‘Alarmingly, we are already seeing some of these changes take place in other parts of the world, such as the floods in Pakistan and the wildfires in Greece,’

‘Unfortunately, for many people in the UK, it’s going to take climate change reaching their doorsteps before they take action. We hope that these images will spur people to make a change,’ he added.

He explained that legislation passed in 2019 requires the UK to be net zero by 2050. However, The Green Alliance estimates the UK will only achieve around 87% of its 2030 emission reduction target, much less its 2050 one.

‘It was really awful to see these images and how climate change would be impacting the UK in 2100. Taking into account the flooding and heat waves that have already occurred, the images look entirely, and frighteningly, realistic,’ said author and campaigner Dr Mya-Rose Craig.

‘We need to make big changes to make our world livable. We need to act now to reduce the impact on our ability to live in the future’.
