The government's chief scientist has said that there is already enough CO2 in the atmosphere for there to be more floods and droughts over the next 25 years.
Prof Sir John Beddington said there was a "need for urgency" in tackling climate change.
He said that the later governments left it, the harder it would be to combat.
Prof Beddington made his comments in the final week of his tenure as the government's chief scientific adviser.
"The [current] variation we are seeing in temperature or rainfall is double the rate of the average. That suggests that we are going to have more droughts, we are going to have more floods, we are going to have more sea surges and we are going to have more storms.
"These are the sort of changes that are going to affect us in quite a short timescale," he warned.
