Annual changes in temperature and precipitation in northern (top panels) and southern Europe (bottom panels) for the
periods 2030–2049 (left panels) and 2080–2099 (right panels) relative to 1961–1990. GCM simulations for the SRES A1B
scenario, which assumes rather high population and economic growth and a balanced use of energy sources, are shown with
green points. Comparable simulations for the ENSEMBLES E1 mitigation scenario are shown with orange points.
Data were extracted from GCM simulations prepared for the FP7 ENSEMBLES project (see Johns, T., Royer, J. F., Höschel, I., Huebener, H., Roeckner, E., Manzini, E., May, W., Dufresne, J.

Anything you pour down your drain, sink or toilet can eventually end up in our rivers or sea! Never dispose of liquids such as oils, grease, or hazardous liquids – like paint thinners or unused paint – by pouring them down the drain. Instead, collect them in one box and dispose with the rest of your waste. Keep them all in their individual packaging, to avoid possible chemical reactions. This will also make it easier for them to be identified during waste collection. If applicable, take them to your community collection point.
