National Trust To Slow Global warming

Five years ago, the National Trust warned that the climate of England could become pleasant, like the south of France.

‘The Met Office are saying that despite the recent concerns about the science, they are very sure about the underlying science. ‘They tell us there is a 50-50 chance we will get a 2C rise. If we pull our finger out we could prevent us moving beyond 2C but we have to act pretty soon‘.

A 2C rise could mean summers in the UK reaching 38C – a climate similar to southern France.

That kind of temperature rise would see the traditional summer deep borders full of herbaceous perennials such as lupins and delphiniums replaced with Mediterranean plans.

But now they have become serious about stopping this imminent danger.

I am hopeful that John Cleese will join her in this worthy, and very English venture.

      Well, now there’s a conundrum. Once they try and convict a witch, they can’t very well burn her, can they? Maybe they’ll attach wings and make her fly though a windmill.

    “If we pull our finger out”?
    Is this a reference to when our older brothers would make us pull their finger, then cause such to coincide with an embarrassing bodily function?

    I did hear that the Ministry of Silly Walks was seeking a new spokesperson.
    Although Dame Helen appears to have far too normal a stride to qualify for that coveted position.

    Sheerness tide gauge at the mouth of the Thames shows approximately 250 mm of sea level rise since 1832 (thru 2009), 177 years. Since the mid 80s the rate has been half that. So with a foot of sea level rise staring them in the face in the next 200-400 years, I can see why they want to act urgently.

    She is willing to go to war but not have a conversation.

    It’s Settled Science, you foolish man!

    Just as “Salt-is-bad-for-you-eat-your-burger-with-no-salt-and-shut-up” is Settled Science too!

    Oh, it’s not?

    Scientists were wrong? They demanded massive changes in our lives to comport withe Settled Science, making all our food taste bad? And it was all a crock?

    Oh, well.

    Never mind.

    The only imminent danger is that the Daily Wail will not go out of business in the near future.

    Gardeners all over Britain are hoping for warmer climates….out with the hostas, in with the olives
