The group says extreme weather worldwide in the last three months has included storms in Taiwan, Brazil and Canada, floods in Bangladesh, Japan, Vietnam and India, fires in the US, Italy and the Balkans and droughts in Burundi, Croatia, Kenya and Iran. Roger Higman, Senior Climate Change Campaigner at FoE, said: ``Dangerous climate change is already happening. The storms and floods we are now seeing will get more frequent and more severe. We desperately need cuts in the use of coal, oil and gas to prevent the worst forecasts coming true. ``That means the Government must stick to a fuel price policy that discourages the use of cars.'' World leaders will be under pressure in the Hague to agree a complex set of rules for carbon trading to try to avert the climate change disaster.
