Thirteen cities worldwide are projected to see “alarming” rises in
temperature that could exceed 2C over the next decade or so, according
to a new report.

The Belgian city of Leuven faces the highest potential increase among
a hundred cities that were included in the report by the Urban Climate
Change Research Network, based at Columbia University.

Cities that could see the steep temperature increases by the 2020s
include Geneva in Switzerland (2.5C), Shenzhen in China (2.3C) and
Tsukuba in Japan (2.3C), the study showed. More

The death toll from Britain's big freeze could rise to more than 2,000,
as it emerged the Met Office had warned ministers a month ago about the
cold snap.

The number of people who have died in cold homes in the UK might reach
100 per day this winter, a charity warned in an analysis of Office for
National Statistics figures.
