Perhaps they won't be needing the millions of pounds for research after all,if its just the weather.

I don't see how they come to that conclusion... we have always been a "damp" island... it was our cloud cover and spooky gloomy appearance that kept the romans away for so long. Add to that the fact that our winters were so cold the Thames would freeze up for weeks. Too many reports blaming our climate and there won't be much money allocated for research into pesticides and pollution. :(

Yes Jenxy.

We are wet and cold but at times wetter and colder than others.

I have a vague recollection that two or maybe three years ago that there was a prediction we were in for a shocking three years based on info from free ranging bouys in the Pacific. They sink and measure temps and so on then every so often surface and burst transmit to a satellite.

Last year may have been the last one or it may be this year not sure.

Anyway it behoves us to try our best to be prepared which state I failed miserably to manage last autumn for business reasons.

Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Hollywood is often a good predictor of future weathers / climate change.

A key example is Blade Runner (always raining).

Then you jump to the day after tomorrow, due to melting ice caps it shifts the gulf stream.

And then there?s water world, mad max to name just a few.
