There is masses of chatter in politics and the world of science about the effects of global warming, but I think the planet is cooling down rather than warming up.
I base my deduction on the fact that I've lived in the South West of England for over 50 years, and I cannot recall back-to-back harsh winters for the UK) like we are having. If I were living in Yorkshire, where I was born, this would be the norm for this time of year as the winds from Russia control the weather; but here in the Bristol area, the weather is usually warmer because the winds come from the Atlantic Ocean and the water causes a quicker temperature loss.
It is a little-known fact, but the Arctic Circle is growing; the ice packs are slowly spreading. The photo on the book cover is one I took nine years ago over Greenland on my way to Canada; the book is the sequel to my highly rated book on Amazon (Nerja).
This section of Greenland no longer exists as it blew up in a volcanic explosion in 2010 with a blast that caused air traffic across between USA and Europe to be brought to a halt for weeks because of the ash in the air.
