Count Yourself Lucky It Was So Warm, Ye Gods.
Anyone else listen to Radio 4's Material World last night?
Apparently last winter was a consequence of other factors including sea currents and so other cyclical phenomena which apparently don't affect the underlying trend in rising global temperatures.
So in a nutshell, were it not for our polluting, mother-earth bashing ways it would not been freezing cold but freezing bollock, nuts firmly trapped in the freezer cold.
Remarkable; has it not occurred to any of them that global temperatures themselves might vary in temperature?
