    'Climate' and 'Weather' are two different things. Localised weather events are exactly that whereas climatic change is a global phenomenom.

    I have loads of arguments with people about "Climate Change" (I think the term global warming has gone out of fashion).

    What worries me is that most people believe human induced climate change is a fact, rather than just being scientific theory. Although scientists will tell you what they think is happening, none of them really know if it's our doing, or just part of a normal climatic cycle.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for reducing pollution and using less fossil fuels. Trying to maintain a pleasant environment is just common sense regardless of any climate related consequences. What I do object to, is governments using climate change as a political tool.

    The earth has been hotter than this before, and then cooled and had an ice age. I don't believe in millions of years, but everything is in a cycle. So the weather changes are expected.

    BTW we contribute, but I doubt its as much as people make out to be.

    I heard that this current shirt is caused by unusually hot weather in Southern Europe, so probably they are getting the warming and we are getting the sticky and of the stick.

    I forgot to add, it's expected to be a long, crappy, wet summer.

    I'd have thought that if the average air temp rises... that would mean on averag more water would evaperate. Meaning more rain ?

    Given we are on a small island... it would makes sense we'd get more rain if global warming occurs?

    Just thinking out loud... I don't know much when it comes to this stuff really!

    As average air temperature rises, the amount of water held in the air is increased. In theory, this can lead to more cloud and rain. More cloud cover means lower temperatures though, so there is a potential balancing act right there.

    I'm not saying that is definative, but that is just one of the hundreds of variables in the global climate and weather model.
