See THIS for a timely report from CNN on the rising levels of the River Seine in Paris. One of these days we are going to have a flood in London, the Thames Barrier is having to be closed far more frequently as time passes. There is talk about what to do but talking won't cut it. Imagine the news headlines...... Climate Change? Naaaah.....

See THIS for a report on the stress being put on deep water corals by the increase in atmospheric CO2. Over half the world's corals are cold and deep water species and they are suffering.

See THIS Guardian report on developments in the Arctic and Siberia....
One doesn't want to be alarmist but on any level of understanding, this perturbation in the fundamental mechanism governing air circulation in the Far North looks serious.
In case you hadn't picked it up the basic problem causing the spell of bad weather we are having at the moment is the disruption of the normal flow of the Jet Stream due to this polar warming, it has been forced South of the Isles leaving us open to the Siberian weather we are getting at the moment. Could this be a harbinger of things to come? Remember also the influence of Arctic temperatures on the flow of the Gulf Stream, the gigantic heat pump that keeps us warmer than anywhere else on the same latitude.
Climate change? What climate change.....?

I read that at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference in the USA - `an annual gathering of conservative activists from around the US that dates back to 1973' - many participants wore T-shirts with `I [heart symbol] CO2' on the front.

Have they never heard of 'Worst Case Scenario' management? I don't mind them being ignorant but it's stupid jerks like that who tip us over the edge.....

Worth keeping an eye on the jet stream. The cold spell is receding but the course of the jet stream is still hundreds of miles south of us in the Mediterranean when it would normally be north of Scotland. This is serious stuff......

Climate deniers like Trump will be running about telling everyone that this proves the climate isn't warming. The truth is that increased snowfall is exactly what you'd expect if Antarctica warms. The warmer air carries more water from the oceans and therefore it drops more snow.

I saw that report Tiz and had exactly the same reaction. The interaction of the wind and currents is complicated stuff and it's the broad picture over time that counts, not individual events.

See THIS BBC report on the news in the journal Nature that a study shows that the ocean currents in the Atlantic are at their weakest for over a thousand years. Exactly what climate watchers expected but no less serious for that. It all reinforces the perception that we have passed a tipping point and are now on a downwards trend. It takes centuries to build up an effect like this and centuries to reverse it. Not good news.

Climate change hasn't gone away.... See THIS for a warning from the environment agency that we are looking at water rationing in the future. I was thinking as I walked across the Green in Barlick this morning that if the present good weather continues we will be hearing warnings about low water stocks. Lo and behold I got back home and heard this on BBC4.
