Abstract

The high temperatures across much of the UK this summer are responsible for hundreds of deaths. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if government departments and agencies had listened to the advice of experts and improved the shockingly poor flow of information to the public about the rising risk of heatwaves due to climate change, writes Bob Ward.
