Oh dear, the Express just can't stop themselves. Apparently now -20c to hit Britain. And yes, it's quite likely that somewhere on the Highlands will see temperatures down to -20c at some point this coming winter .... but not any time soon. Though air frosts are possible in many places "within a matter of weeks". As indeed is rain. And clouds. And Christmas decorations in the shops.

I'm surprised to hear that Europeans fear climate change more than financial turmoil - though I guess it depends on how the question is worded.

Much less of a surprise - because I've been saying it for years - is Myles Allen's opinion that Al Gore is doing a disservice to science by overplaying the link between climate change and weather. A piece well worth reading, especially if you disagree that humans are affecting the climate.

And OMG! We're all going to die! Again! News about planet-threatening events is that Earth could get hit by gamma ray bursts every 100 million years .....
