Floods, freak rainfall and so on – the latest research says it is due to climate change – read the article on the Greenpeace website.
There are many recorded real life indicators of climate change but here’s a small but interesting story about the declining population of the Ring Ouzel – or easier to remember the mountain Blackbird. Anyway, these birds have been monitored for three years and it is thought that they “could be struggling because warmer weather is drying out soil making it harder for them to catch earthworms, according to RSPB Scotland.”.
Also in Britain is news of a Climate Bill. Climate charity I Count are urging us to petition Gordon Brown to ensure that he doesn’t duck out of a stiff reduction in emissions when the bill is submittedf next year.
