funny how it's called global warming when the talk is of ice caps melting, but called climate change when we have a few bits of rain.
I once spent a winter in amsterdam that was so cold it froze my brake fluid and diesel, and the dutch didn't call it ANYTHING,

they just bought scarves.....

In the words of a Scottish comedian, "There's no such thing as bad weather.  You're just wearing the wrong clothes."

Edit: Easy to say when you're from a country that doesn't experience the extremes, though... I must admit.

It called continental weather and its typical. Berlin has long periods with temperature down to -16C and no one passes comment. Its called climate change when these prevailing climatic conditions significantly change - which is what is happening in the UK, a shift to wetter milder winters with all of the consequent flooding that comes with it.

Global warming causes climate change. Climate change can be anything that moves away from the prevailing conditions for a given area.

I don't have any scarves to sell and my cold-weather stuff is all in lockers in the States, since I have no use for them here.

I do worry about the Mekong delta. but by the time its flooding gets serious I'll be long dead.  Not very nice of this generation to load the problem on the next.

Global warming in Britain will not mean a nice "café culture, sitting outside sipping lattes" but heatwaves that kill vulnerable elderly people and catastrophic flooding, a climate change expert has warned.

So what do elderly people do in greece or italy?  Do thousands of them die every year from the heat & if so what's being done about it?
