I have long been a firm follower of Murtagh’s Meadow and a recent post where the good lady asks…
Is Climate Change Affecting Our Neighbourhoods?
… prompted me to leave the following comments,
Mmmm… we all have our views. Mine is just that the climate has been changing since the so-called Big Bang.
I’m afraid, the scaremongers who are gaining financially by all their doomsday predictions are only cherry-picking the data that suit them! (The hockey-stick lark, to name but one…)
I wonder… if we take the statistics over the last few hundred years (instead of only choosing to trot out the last twenty years data?) … how much has really changed? Weather change is cyclical… the patterns will always vary. I wonder when will water vapour become the new greenhouse gas to be vilified…
OK… enough, your pics are great… I love the daffs in the snow… and yes, they were early this year… so, let’s just be grateful for their colour! Next year they may be very late… who knows?
The crux of the matter – we should seek answers and challenge opinion, not blithely follow every whim chucked at us.
Just by the way… we should save our energies (and focus) for the fight against pollution… of all kinds, beginning with farming and the massively destructive effects of mono-culture and chemical interference!
I’d like to add here that reading a post by a South African blogger who also thinks the whole global warming carry-on is a farce, further prompted me to do this post today. Perdebytjie is a very astute lady. She’s no fool and doesn’t suffer fools kindly so, it is gratifying to see that others, who love the natural world and the long-term future of our environments, know that the questions around global warming need debate and challenge.
PS – The top photo was taken on 29 Jan 2019 – early! The second on 01 MAR 2019 – that’s more like it, or is it? Who decides?
PPS – March has been rather chilly and damp. So much so that bulbs like tulips are not really flowering… so, the early spring seems to have been halted in its tracks, therefore… I predict this is the start of global cooling!
PPPS – Happy Hump Day… yes, midweek already! Time to start planning the weekend’s activities?
PPPPS – I hope the two links today doesn’t result my post landing in your spam tin!
PPPPPS – Chilly again today… seems my prediction is coming true…
