I acknowledge that I have ranted about the weather on a couple of occasions on this blog, in particular on what I believe to be the causes and effects of the erratic weather patterns we have been witnessing for some years now. However, it is as if my worst fears are being proven true, but at a much faster pace than I had initially feared.
A case in point is Switzerland’s coming mid-April heatwave:
26 degrees Celsius is being forecast for tomorrow… At this rate, I guess that even our Swiss glaciers will not last long! Frightening, is it not? Or is it simply me who is worried? Why not rejoice like the others and only think about the sunbathing?
This is more how I feel:
- Will 2014 be the year of a worldwide awakening regarding global warming?
- Saddened by the inexorable death of these Alpine giants
- Crazy weather for October … almost 20 degrees Celsius on some mountains
