Following my posting on ‘lovely apocalypse” below my thanks are due to Dave Hampton, Carbon Coach (see links) for pointing out that the BBC Have Your Say site is the home page for heatwave denial. Here are some of the choice comments voted as favourites by users of the site:
What heat ? It’s called a decent Summer, get used to it.
Come on! A bit of sunshine compared to months of dull grey weather, London looks lovely!
Why is everyone so determined to moan about it? Live a little!!!
What you’re experiencing is weather, not climate change. It’s summer. It’s hot. Perhaps it will be cold in winter too? Or will you put a cold winter down to climate change too?
This is what a real Summer is all about, enjoy it, it could all be over by August…
I really cannot beleive that people are moaning because the sun is shining and it’s hot.
Did people in 1911 (when the last highest tempurature was recorded) blame global warming? Did they go on about stopping gas guzzlers? Nope, thought so. Lets just enjoy it while it lasts beacuse we will be moaning about the cold rain soon.
I am all for global warming if this is the consequence. Just off to spray a few more aerosols, break open some old fridges and leave the car engine running to make sure!
