“Southern Africa in for 10°C temperature rise” – The Weekender

WITHOUT global cuts in carbon emissions, average temperatures in southern Africa could increaseSouthern Africa, seen from Apollo 17 as much as 10°C as early as 2060, according to a study released by the UK’s Meteorological Office last week. The study is based on a range of models, and predicts an average global temperature increase of 4°C by 2060.
But 4°C is just the global average increase — and while some areas will warm by less than 4°C, others will warm by more. For southern Africa, a 10 °C rise is likely in inland areas.
