The Climate of Britain. Introduction. Britain is in the temperate climate zone and does not have extremes of temperature or rainfall. The Gulf Stream, a large Atlantic Ocean current of warm water from the Gulf of Mexico, keeps winters quite mild whilst during summertime, warm but not excessively hot temperatures are experienced. Dust from North Africa mingled with other aerosols in the skies over the United Kingdom (left of center) and Ireland (farther west) on 18 April In this scene, the dust is more prominent to the north over the Atlantic, where it can be seen as a tan swirl west of Norway. West of Ireland, the haze is grayer, and is more likely pollution.

Description. This section is from the book "Light Science For Leisure Hours", by Richard A. available from Amazon: Light Science for Leisure Hours, Second Series. The Climate Of Great Britain. Part 3.   With Aussies leading the way, and now Great Britain, the Germans are quietly moving in the same direction in order to preserve their national economies from the stifling, hugely expensive, and completely worthless “combat climate change” regulations.
