Another excellent Independent front cover, showing the scale of the flooding disaster in the South - remember just a month ago when we had the great flood... but that was in the North...There's also a great quote featuring James Lovelock.
In April 1989 Margaret Thatcher, then Prime Minister, gave her Cabinet a seminar on global warming at No 10 and one of the speakers was the scientist and green guru James Lovelock. A reporter asked him afterwards what would be the first signs of global warming. He replied: "Surprises." Asked to explain, he said: "The hurricane of October 1987 was a surprise, wasn't it? There'll be more."
The floods of 2007 were a surprise as well, and if Dr Lovelock is right, there'll be more of them too. Welcome to the weather of the 21st century.Watch out for plenty more surprises !
