    Nice pics Paul but you’ve missed out the floods, wildfires, drought, heatwaves.etc – and we can see all the CO2 molecules destroying the planet.

    Those daffodils look worryingly late to me or is it just that they are up in the cold north?

      Lent lillies?

      The daffodil flowering time is as much abused by alarmists as everything else.

      The common wild/naturalized types are fortunately well used to the wild swings of British springs and just rest and react until they manage to do their thing.

      Of course there are many different types with immensely different blooming periods – even Autumn flowering daffs are now quite widespread thanks to gardeners, as are very late flowering types that may just last until early summer.

      The MSM is very keen at showing these and shouting that the seasons are out of wack because of climate change. They pull the same trick with autumn/winter flowering cherry trees varieties.

    OT I know but some scientists and NGO’s are biting back against false and twisted facts:-

        Sorry Broadlands I forgot I have a subscription to the Telegraph.The link should take you there and then be rude and not let you see it.

    Is that sky about to fall down Paul??!!

    My wife and I have strolled today – we will get the bikes out again when we can stop at a pub for a pint and a bite.

      “Is that sky about to fall down ”

      No, it’s held up by that tower thing !!!

    I’ve been out on my bike every day now for over a week. This new improved climate is very good for my fitness. Roll on more CO2 and more warming.

      In my part of the world any cycling enjoyment is destroyed by having to concentrate on avoiding all the potholes in our wonderful roads.
      My, what a country, everything falling apart but we are going to “SAVE THE PLANET FROM CLIMATE CHANGE”

      • April 1, 2021 9:08 am

        I only go out when the lanes are dry and I can see the potholes clearly and can distinguish them from puddles. They have mostly been there so long that I know where most of them are.

      • April 1, 2021 10:27 am

        Not while this dubious government last, they hate CO2 the very thing that makes the green and pleasant land we currently have. Destroy that and the green will disapear, fast!

        I’m pretty much a fair weather cyclist too. Avoiding broken bones and hospital infections is the best policy

        There was a piece on East Midlands News last night about a lady who highlights potholes in her street with dayglow pink paint, with embellishments like legs and antenna.

        My son’s comment “She’s going to be fined for graffiti”

        I hate to gloat (not!!), but our roads in Sheffield are pretty good – reason, it was Nick Clegg’s pay off for joining the coalition (Cleggy was of course MP for Sheffield in those days)

    It is absolutely Baltic in Aberdeen today, while down there it’s record breaking balmy sunshine , of course such weather extremes are to be expected during the climate emergency.

    I can see you are following the fashion for electric vehicles.

    • March 31, 2021 8:09 pm

      I noticed that too. It is cheating and bad for the environment.

      Yes. You should be cancelled immediately with no right of reply.

      We have real hills up here!

    • John Palmer permalink
      April 1, 2021 6:04 pm

      Very good they are too. After decades of riding (and racing on) bikes, at 75 and with dodgy knees, long trips on my regulars bikes are off the menu. But I can still go out and enjoy a hilly 40km ride on my lovey e-bike. I calculate that I have pedalled well over 50k miles over the years – that must go some way towards making up for my years of Range Rover V8 driving!
      Ride on, Paul!

    Looks like the panic merchants were robbed of their expected record March temperature today, turned out to be a lot more cloudy in the warmer areas than forecast.

    Now there’s a 33% chance of snow in central London in a few days.

      Low of minus 1 forecast for next week! If natural variability can be that high week to week I cannot see how averages can be meaningful. They are highly subject to chaotic behaviour.

    Yes, golf here in the East Midlands, Monday and today. First time since records began that I was down to a shirt in March. Can’t take much more of this.

    Hey Greta what’s the Carbon footprint of melting a load of metal to make a lifesize statue ?

  15. April 1, 2021 7:40 am

    Minus 1.7C here in the northern Scottish Highlands tonight. 24.2mm of rain in the gauge yesterday – so I can vouch for both global warming and drought conditions in Scotland.

    Dont worry, it’s sub zero again for Easter Sunday and Monday.

    I drove from Canterbury (23C) to Rye (16C) yesterday. Is this the climate change I should be alarmed about?

    • April 1, 2021 11:11 am

      And hellow to you from Stavanger, 7 degrees and snow forecast for days! I WANT some global wotsisname!

      I drove from Barham (home) to Canterbury yesterday and noticed a significant temperature rise (UHI). Did we pass each other on the way?

    We shouldn’t be too hard on the authorities over potholes. They are probably waiting delivery of their electric lorries to get the team of men to the site. On second thoughts though perhaps they should be using the hand pushed trucks they used in the nineteenth century.

  19. April 1, 2021 11:34 am

    We are expecting snow next week and temperatures of -7C, change from today which is sunny and warm. I suppose that’s climate change for you.
    Meanwhile the insanity of EVs marches on and this latest wheeze is expected to spread

      erm…look at the date on the article. Can see why they’ve done it though, almost could happen in today’s mad world.

    My daughter is 24 on Monday. I can recall that when she was born the early April weather was very hot. The last couple of days have been nice but you couldn’t describe them as hot. Today it’s cold again. I would have expected that 24 years of warming would have made a noticeable difference.

    The very underrated seventies rock band Bebop Deluxe come from Selby. They did a song called Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape.

    Go back there after Easter and photograph the snow. I know GFS is not a very reliable model but watching a snowpack run for 1 to 16 April shows it spreading all the way down even to my SE corner. Mr Bratby may be OK in the SW. The worry is that there will be frost damage to a lot of plants.

    On another topic, a good post on GWPF taken from Die Post about the state Germany has got itself into over energy costs and grid reliability. You have to smile at how they skirt around the obvious conclusion that unreliable energy is too expensive and that the rising costs are a death knell to the economy. If you have to spend all your money on just living costs jobs will collapse and then there will be no money even for the living costs.

    Touch of the sun all-round I think – leading to parietal lobe warming. Enjoy it while it’s out!

    Down here in darkest kent my first bluebell flowers are poking out, but higer up in the woods they are not, I mean they have done that for the 25 years Ive lived here but now Im thinking should I be worried?

    Paul, How Dare you mock !
    East Riding Council declared a Climate Emergency on Feb 24th
    after the Tories decided to vote For and then kick it down road
    by declaring they will take 1 year for planning policy

    The only people interested are Putin’s Little helpers ..the anti-fracking guys who are trying to stop Rathlin drilling
    And of course the subsidy mafia who hope to get grants.
