Pete......recognition at last. 

Problem is though many hand the percentage I dont know.......say there is no climate change taking place

remember those crop circles?  Some locals ...I understand the mischief involved........created crop circles and a whole bunch of "experts" rushed to the site and declared supernatural activity.  When the locals announced their work the "experts" moaned about wasting their time and disappeared (into their bedroom labs no doubt) 

did you see the "experts" on question time last night?

How do you KNOW differently WillDB?

A clue from where the "rant came from" featured in my post.  

An advantage of the libdems losing power is that a fanatically inclined energy minister is no longer driven to push up energy prices.  

however, I repeat.....I KNOW some "expert" will pop up on our screens if we have a heatwave to say it is "climate change".    Mankind is destroying the environment But this is not causing climate change

(Always nice to stir tho WillDB. )

All lovely plants Marion.  Nice to spoil yourself now and then 

Summer shrubs that have nice follage in winter

Do you mean "shrubs" Rebecca?

choisya is a delightful evergreen looking good in winter.  Hebes of all kinds. Abelia...a nice smaller variegated variety called in late summer.  Escallonia.  Ceanothus.  Mahonias....nice new compact Careless......and Senecio.  Viburnums too.  If you have a neutral soil camellias look good.  If acid soil rhododendrons, azaleas, kalmias etc look good in winter.

Dawn, you dont need a video.  Look at your plants and pull shoots....3 to 4".....(pipings) off, tidy them up and pot them up in compost.  Water, cover with polythene bag and leave outside in a spot out of direct sun.  They root quickly.  You will have flowering plants next summer

Still raining here.

honesty here.  Climate change is NOT happening.  

Wont go into it all again but an academic who should know better loudly proclaimed to me how bad it is all going to be.  What a silly man.  He called out an electrician to replace a fuse 

climate change "experts" are tripping over themselves......they are so focussed on their highly paid jobs that they fail to see how often they change their definitions.  

Before anyone jumps in with the usual accusations I am not deluded or in a state of denial.  Like most others,  we KNOW the climate change lobby is wrong.  And one way or another they are costing us all a fortune

summer continues with a heatwave this weekend...a pleasant 23 here and a torrid 30 plus in the south east. however this  is not climate change.  But just watch out for the "experts" renewing their climate change huff and puff as temps soar
