i think the british weather has got better over the years.

16 Jul

london 6.59am 19.3C sunny sunday 2017

another fine day, something i have to remind myself otherwise i forget to note it and take it for granted. and then years later when i look back on this summer i would not think it any different from the usual perception of summer in uk, that it is wet and cold.

we have been having fine summers in the uk for quite some time , many years in fact. i dont become aware of it, because it is such a gradual shift , but now it has become quite established , enough to be noticeable even to people like me who dont take note of these things.

if it is due to global warming, than all i can say is bring it on. as far as uk is concerned warm summers (and more importantly mild winters) from a warming cycle in world climate is welcomed. of course if u have been living in the part of the mediterranean that has ideal weather when u were growing up but now suffering drought, and wild fires and really hot dry summers, than tough luck. time to give someone else a turn at the good weather.

weather22.7.17

 

this is the snapshot of forecast for 22.7.17 saturday for europe. so much red, to some , they must be thinking great, such hot weather to holiday in and lamenting that it has missed the uk. but those people are foolish. these hot weathers are not anything to be excited about. they are murder for those living there.

 

i think climate has its cycles, some places have yearly changes , others maybe once in 10yrs, whilst others changes so much in a 20-30 yr cycle that once was lush lands are now deserts. and then there are the ice ages that comes round every 1000 yrs or so or whatever the interval is for these things.

the modern conceit is that we humans can influence it…i dont think so. what we should be doing is adapt to these changing conditions. in the old days people migrate. but there are no undiscovered lands anymore to move to. or rather long gone are those days when we can invade someone elses land and steal it from them. so i think we should use our intelligence and inventiveness to make our environment comfortable, airconditioning i mean, and by that harnessing a way of getting energy that is cheap and plentiful. that would be the holy grail to find. harnessing the energy of the sun i think. we should be putting our resources and minds into this rather than trying to carbon control . that is a problem for future generations to tackle.

but right now, we in uk can just enjoy our long warm summers and mild winters and revel in this ideal weather.
