I don’t want come all over ‘we’re doomed’ but it is the 1st of November and so very very mild outside – currently the temperature is a balmy 19 degrees C (66 degrees f in old money). We still have roses blooming and leaves still on the trees, although most are starting to fall now – at least a month late. We haven’t even had a frost yet.
Whilst this means we are having a wonderful autumn it does mean that places further south are struggling for the basics such as water! Is this a sign of global warming? Well you can argue about that but I suspect it really is – after all the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere haven’t been this high in millions of years. Only time will tell.
