Currently on holiday in the South of France, the Clarkson’s Farm presenter has been winding up Twitter users as he continues to shrug off the damage that could be caused by the heatwave that is now beginning to come to and end in the UK and parts of Europe.
He posted to Twitter:
“It’s very hot in the south of France but so far as I know, there’s no DefCon 8 level 3 killer death heatwave warning in place.
“I’ve spent my life working in extreme heat and we survived by having a beer under a tree. Climate change is real. Drink more beer.”
He later added: “Really hot in France this evening. But I’ve had a beer and all is well.”
But only moments ago, Jeremy Clarkson revealed to his 7.7 million Twitter followers that he lost an animal from his farm thanks to the heat:
“Thankfully, the global warming is now over but tragically, its brief visit took the life of my big pig. RIP pig,” he shared.

Twitter users flocked to the tweet, with many still angered by his recent posts. One responded with a video of the M25 motorway in England which is currently seeing flames lick across its sides:

Another said: “Good joke. Bet the people who lost there homes to fires are laughing their heads of.”
Others opened up about their own losses due to the heat, with one user saying:
“My hamster Papaya died in the early hours of the morning due to the heat. I miss him so much already.”
Another askes Jeremy to see the seriousness of the heat:
“Perhaps you will realise how serious this is then. How would you like it if your land was on fire and you where struggling to harvest enough food to keep your animals fed or winter, let alone anything else. I feel sorry for the proper farmers.”
