Last result from yesterday was another Tory loss, to Independents in Herefordshire on a big swing.

Had Labour not fallen just short in the Staffs CC contest due to a strong Green showing, it would have been a near perfect set of results.

I do hope to produce a full write-up.......eventually.

Caroline Lucas was described as "disrespectful" for linking recent extreme weather events to climate change.

Corbyn has just done the same, good for him.

Boris Johnson says EU has legal duty to discuss future trade relations

In a potentially provocative move, he also explained to reporters before a meeting with his EU counterparts in Tallinn, Estonia, that the EU had a legal duty to discuss trade relations. “Article 50 makes it very clear that the discussion about the exit for a country must be taken in the context of a discussion of the future arrangements, and that’s what we are going to do,” Johnson said. (Guardian)


He didn't point out the part of Article 50 that says that. It must have slipped his mind.

the laws of physics
the greenhouse gases we've collectively pumped into the atmosphere for a few hundred years has consequences
someone described Lucas as 'disrespectful' pointing this out?
madness, utter madness
please remember this is a collective endeavour
don't blame yourselves unless you're a big shot who could have done something different at (at least) the national level
many contributing to the altering of our atmosphere are long dead
current global leadership not making changes are profoundly disappointing

From the Met Office
Quote:
How is climate linked to extreme weather?

Certain extreme weather events have become more likely to happen since the recent onset of climate change
It's impossible to point at a single weather event and put it down to climate change. Instead, we talk about probabilities.

Certain extreme weather events have become much more frequent, or more likely to happen in a given year, since the recent onset of climate change. The practice of linking weather events to human-influenced global warming (or something else) is called attribution studies.

An extreme heatwave of the type that occurred in Texas in 2011 (a La Niña year) was calculated to have become much more probable in recent years. What was a 1:100-year likelihood in the 1960s is now thought to have odds of one in six years.

Likewise, the odds of a cold winter in the UK, like that experienced in 2010/2011, were found to have roughly halved. However, not all types of extreme events were found to have a human influence.

Experts predict that fierce storms and floods, such as those that brought chaos to parts of the UK in 2012 and 2013, are likely to become even more frequent in the future. Over the past 100 years, warming has been accompanied by a reduction in the frequency of frosts and an increase in the number of heatwaves in many parts of the world. The amount of rainfall is getting heavier in some countries in terms of volume per downpour.

Since the 1960s, many countries around the world seem to have experienced a reduction in the number of cool days and nights and increases in the number of warm days and nights.

Excellent stuff.

We certainly had some "volume per downpour" here last night!

She is just very good, even on topics where your partisan nature blinds you.

If you hold that view of a writer,regardless,perhaps the lack of discernment and partisanly blindship is yours.
