Co-Director of the Climate Studies Group at the UWI Mona, Professor Michael Taylor, says climate change will erode the quality of life over time.

He notes more flooding, higher sea levels and more powerful storms are features of the region’s future as climate change intensifies.

Professor Taylor says the region’s not very far from worse swings and extremities in weather brought on by climate change.

The Professor says a new climate era, characterized by unfamiliarity, is limiting the country’s planning mechanism.

He says the experts are grappling with the unpredictable nature of once predictable climate patterns.
