11 apocalyptic photos show how British cities could be transformed by climate change, according to AI

Climate change is one of the biggest threats we are set to face in the coming decades. If worst case scenarios are met, it could cause major changes to life in Britain in the near future. 

The 1.5C warming limit was breached last year, climate scientists have warned. Prof Sir Bob Watson, a former chair of the UN's climate body, told the BBC Radio 4's Today Programme: “ This far exceeds anything that is acceptable. Look what's happened this year with only 1.5C - we've seen floods, we've seen droughts, we've seen heatwaves and wildfires all over the world."

For residents in Britain, a climate disaster could cause major changes to our cities and our way of lives. Increased flood, coastal erosion, heatwaves and more extreme weather events could all be a result. 

But what would this look like? We asked AI image generator NightCafe to show how 11 cities could be changed in 50 years by climate change.
