  1. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/aug/29/the-air-conditioning-trap-how-cold-air-is-heating-the-world interesting read in the Guardian today.
  2. The earth is undoubtedly warming at an alarming rate and to be honest I think that hundreds of millions of additional AC units would do huge environmental damage. Not only do they release harmful gases that damage the ozone layer but also the raw energy needed to run them 24/7 wouldn’t be great not to mention the artificial warming of towns and cities. Unfortunately everyone’s got to do their bit.
  3. Just been on the Met office website having a look at 2018-19 rainfall averages compared to 1981-2010 average. Looks below normal for the south east to me but I’ll bow to your superior knowledge on this one.
  4. I think it’s more a culmination of the lack of rain over the past 2-3 years in the south east including in the winter rather than a few passing showers in summer that might make the ground a bit soggy. Definitely noticeable around here that ponds that are normally full of life are either bone dry or have a muddy puddle in the middle.
  5. It certainly is needed around these parts. Local lake to us looks more like the Serengeti.
  6. EPS certainly suggesting the south & south east will be at least a couple of degrees below average next week.
  7. Oh yes definitely agree with the posts above. Its just the media seem to be going a little over the top on this one, maybe it’s because of the run of dry weather we’ve had. Time will tell I guess.
  8. Anyone would think it’s monsoon season the way the media are going on. Couple of hours of rain and a bit of wind Friday night & Saturday and then changeable next week with showers, sunshine & temps around average, where’s the news story for our region?? Largely dry today in the southeast after a wet start.
  9. They certainly have, and it’s grim reading if you like a bit of cold
  10. Log delivery in and stored and dare I say the outlook is starting to look a bit Autumnal That said it’s certainly been a very usable day despite being overcast, got plenty done in the garden
  11. Unfortunately but not surprisingly, Artic sea ice is currently at a record low https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/charctic-interactive-sea-ice-graph/
  12. Probably shouldn’t need to wait too long before another record attempt
  13. I think you’ll find me in the, a bit of everything, brigade. That’s why this summers been so decent to date.
