ANSWER #1 of 3

Marine Climate also known as Oceanic Climate is a type of climate typically found along the west coasts at the middle latitudes of some of the world's continents.
.
It is characterised by having comparatively warm winters and cool summers with a narrow annual temperature variation and rainfall being fairly uniformly common throughout the year with no predictably regular dry season(s).
.
In the case of the British Isles and the west-coastal regions of Scandinavia is is caused by the Thermohaline Circulation of warm water in what is known as the "Gulf Stream".
.
Global warming is thought to be seriously weakening the effects of the Gulf Stream & its warming effects thus paradoxically, global warming may result in a significant drop in average annual temperatures in the British Isles, within our lifetimes.
