It’s Sunday afternoon and bitterly cold, at least for Scotland at this time of year. Our exact location on the East Coast of Scotland just near Arbroath and across a narrow stretch of water from St Andrews often escapes the worst of the weather. Even today we have not had the forecast snow which no doubt will have fallen just a few miles away. The sun has shone brightly most of the day, though the light is fading now.
We have had hardly any rain since Christmas and the barometer has had unusual periods of steady low pressure covering most of the UK. This is much more what you would expect of a period of high pressure.
How can anyone realistically deny that our climate is changing? But maybe we humans are not the only cause.
