That climate change thing

Much as I normally like to write at length, particularly where scientific related matters are concerned and stick to the science and not rely on personal observation but this whole thing about the changing global climate.

I’m not sure if it’s indicative of the nature of the blogosphere or more to do with its primary inhabitants spending more time in front of computer screens in urban areas with little vegetation than getting outside and communing with nature that there seems to be a fair bit in the way of denying it.

I’m a keen gardener despite my rather limited estate but last year wasn’t exactly the most productive of growing seasons.

If there isn’t something rather dodgy going on with our climate then can someone tell me why my roses were still budding a week before Christmas and at present there are Autumn leaves blowing around on the drive?
