Global warning

Remember when the phrase 'global warming' first entered the wider public consciousness, people quipped , 'good, better summers' and alike, the point conveniently being missed; maybe that was the point, cynical view I know. A few decades on and the reality of climate change isn't the comfortable, and somewhat whimsical, vision of warmer beers in a Mediterranean Britain; not by a long chalk. No, climate change has wrought chaos on our seasons and the natural cycles there in. Now the only predictable aspects of seasonal weather are their unpredictable nature and as a consequence the effects of our reckless disregard for our planet are coming home to roost.
