Happy New Year

My first blog posting of 2016. Unseasonal weather continues and links now being made with possible climate change. Doh! Only certainty about the weather is it is unpredictable and will become more so. UK needs to plan for floods, high winds, droughts, sea level rise, greater storm surges and high temperatures when considering the future.  And we need to really up the action on not burning fossil fuels and other global warming chemicals. We also need after doing that to encourage the rest of the world as well.
