This presentation deals with extreme weather in the UK. It outlines some recent extreme weather events (1987 Great Storm, 1976 Drought, 1963 Cold Winter) before looking at the 2010 Big Freeze. Students are asked to explain the causes of the Big Freeze and analyse its social, economic and environmental impact. There are activities including a plenary activity in which the class is invited to respond to a number of imaginary 'complaints' by members of the public during the Big Freeze.
