That's the concerning thing. Every year we get new records for weather extremes.
You can have sceptics on both sides so I call bullshit on that friends of science article. If it's such a trend that is so obvious, then why have thousands of scientific voices / minds not been influenced by it?
I'd suggest human beings of all intellects have the potential to be most contrary Rob - I give you as the most obvious example the Catholic Church - palpable nonsense of the most extreme kind but nonetheless still holding sway over hundreds and hundreds of millions of people...
For what little it's worth, I fully accept that climate change is happening - it would be absurd not to - after all, it has always happened and will still be happening on an on-going basis long after humanity has shuffled off its current perch. There is however a peculiarly human arrogance to assume that what is happening now is solely and uniquely mankind's fault and solely and uniquely within mankind's permit to put right.
