As far as the UK is concerned, recent trends in climate have been beneficial to agriculture and fuel consumption even if the Scottish ski resorts have had a bad time. Who knows, we may even return to the balmy days of the Roman empire. I miss the snowy winters but you can't have everything, and English wine is amazingly good.

Joe :)

You have threads discussing those stolen Emails, debunking the denier claims, somewhere at TNS. And I consider your first opinion the correct one. It will continuously get worse, until we adapt to our new role as 'caretakers' of this planet, instead of its 'exploiters'. Doubt any sane species would enjoy us, near them, seeing what we are doing to our own planet.

And talking about emigrating into space is just stupidity. We're already on the best spaceship ever built.

Earth.
