      The temperature of the upper atmosphere will increase, that means it’ll hold more water vapour at high altitude and that p
      reduces the heat that radiated out into space from earth so the planet heats up. that means the climate will change. Ireland will actually get colder as fresh water from melting ice caps will reduce the salinity of the Atlantic and disturb the north Atlantic drift and it’ll move south and the warning effect that keeps us warm in winter compared to Canada (at the same latitude as Ireland) will be gone. to be avoided at all costs.
