What people had forgotten was that there was a massive hole in the ozone layer caused by years of pumping toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. They had also forgotten about all of the damage caused by mankind since the days of the industrial revolution. Not to mention radiation in the sea from atomic bomb testing, or the plastic in the oceans. While Britain enjoyed tropical weather, the rest of the world had become even hotter to the same degree. Deaths increased due to heatstroke and skin cancers. Normal life and working life had changed drastically. Water shortages and rationing were now worldwide. Civilians were forced to leave the coast as their homes disappeared underwater. There had been mass migrations to mountain and hilly areas, where the higher altitudes meant relatively lower temperatures, although the space in these regions was so limited that there was fighting amongst people for space and there was desperate overcrowding in all dwellings. Coastal areas possessed a maritime climate which lowered the heat in these places by noticeable degrees. Like the hilly regions, these towns were in high demand for living.
