10th April - Today's News: Dozens Killed in Iran Earthquake

I wouldn't normally consider Pravda as a reliable news source, but this seems a fairly accurate explanation of how sudden stratospheric warming - and not anything daft like the Gulf Stream stopping - caused continuing wintry weather across much of Europe - and unsual warmth in southern Siberia - as  spring is shifted north by polar cyclone.   And as it also rightly points out, such unusual weather is actually not all that unusual.

Contrary to this finding, British scientists say fracking 'not significant' cause of large earthquakes - or by significant and large do they mean it's not as significant as plate tectonics in causing massive, catastrophic quakes? 

And charities want more National Parks in Scotland
